    i could only stomach 15 minutes of this before turning on 7 psychopaths instead

    Drive My Car


    Some really, really great moments! The sleepy post coital storytelling of protagonist’s wife, the lady with the smallest smiles accompanying her sign language, the final moments of the film concluding in a crescendo of silence. All of these best moments felt the most human while the rest… artificial? The natural tone and pacing of the film was a poor match with some of the farfetched dialog that was meant to have emotional heft. At its worst, the script was constantly…

    Watching Ethan Hawke stare into a glass of pepto bismol was a euphoric experience i wasn’t expecting to find in my lifetime. Ironic, cutting, and just utterly bleak. I know it’s probably redundant to compare this to Taxi Driver, but the parallels here work so well together, I couldnt help but feel a sense of closure for Toller as well as Bickle by the end. Is Schrader giving Travis Bickle a second chance, almost four decades later? Love love loved it!

    A Ghost Story


    I love stories about people and their relationships with home. It was new to contemplate someone getting displaced while staying in the same place.

    Also the only thing that made watching a Casey Affleck movie tolerable was that he was under a sheet most of the time.

    Adorable kids, captivating female roles. Also I now have a weird crush on Willem Dafoe. Nothing about this movie was challenging—it's obvious how much Sean Baker wants our affection. It's working I think?

    Beautiful movie about cities, people, and how we change as our horizons are broadened. I don't remember the last time dialogue in an animated film has felt so natural and adorable. This was a lovely surprise!

    I watched this alone in a dark basement and came out a new woman.

  • Only Yesterday

    Only Yesterday


    Takahata depicts life as it is, or was, as we follow Taeko, 27, in the present and the past as a kid in the 5th grade. The two timeframes relate to each other very loosely; the flashbacks don't help much in driving the plot forward, but come and go as they please. Takahata's storytelling never arrives at a climax, instead choosing to reflect what we usually experience in our lives—a constant beat, step by step. The rhythmic and steady thrum made when taking a stroll in the countryside.

    The lost potential was the most frustrating part of watching this movie.
