    The Matrix Reloaded

    ★★★★½

    pretty much the perfect sci-fi? as moving as it gets, and very concerned with real ideas and themes that many films (including, for better or worse, the other matrix flicks) somewhat gloss over. and those setpieces never get old man

    evil. some people describe this as lynchian but other than some of the digital darks i don't see that - lynch's stuff is often about unseen undercurrents of darkness creeping into idyllic communities, this is corporate sludge capitalism from the jump start, no pretenses at all. also while a lot of lynch is genuinely erotic, this is probably the least erotic movie in existence; a film which almost seems disgusted with the mere idea of sex, portraying it as an…

    so special and sweet and full of love and care and this sort of bonding over trauma that never /really/ ends but offers relief sometimes. never feels like it's going full on exploitative or sadcore, and it basically refuses to engage with any sort of vulgarities or misgivings; virtually every character is realistically stated, trying to move on with the misery of their own situations. can't believe it's a debut! and i can't wait to see more of what choe has in store :)
