• The Stranger

    The Stranger

    a very american objective of fighting nazism one closeted neighbor at a time in a sleepy connecticut town of, surely, citizens not to distantly removed from slave ownership themselves. neither here nor there! 

    wellesian black & white gives a swift & certain kick in the ass to the hooligans who grasped toward color film and ubiquitously called it “innovation.”

  • Blow Out

    Blow Out

    blink and you’ll miss the blunt force trauma conclusion. in america your liberty is dead on arrival, but maybe you can be immemorailized as a scream. 

    the conspiracy is a little lame, not even as villainous as chappaquiddick in a jfk💥🔫 to nixon world. john lithgow murdering on behalf of himself and not the completely denigrated political class is just alright.

    quintessentially american oblivion—it’s beautiful, but in a way, incomparable to it’s source material.

  • The Count of Monte Cristo

    The Count of Monte Cristo

    by a sheer stroke of luck we watched this on September 12, the date our main character was purportedly sentenced to death. a thrilling little coincidence. 

    the convenient, fairytale ending renders the metaphorical dialogue toothless. your morals need only be held close once your vengeance has been served.

    i’m not suggesting that christopher nolan can travel through inverted time, but the characters are wearing masks

  • Pearl Harbor

    Pearl Harbor

    a sequence of the most horrifyingly vivid deaths as japan ambushes pearl harbor, i felt like i was suffocating in the submerged hull of an army vessel. obliterating to watch scenes like this in the midst of a cheese filled love triangle drama. 

    michael shannon, i love you 🤍

    Hustlers

    This review may contain spoilers. I can handle the truth.

    you guys act shocked like you didn’t know girls just want to have fun! & the ability to pay rent on an apartment w/ beautiful, large windows! 

    don’t understand the scorsese comparisons but that opening long shot that followed destiny as she snaked her way through the barren back hallways & into the club did make me think i was supposed to be remembering raging bull. and i did so it worked!

    reminded me of 21

  • A Summer's Tale

    A Summer's Tale

    what i mean to say is that scene in the princess diaries where paulo looks at mia for the first time and exclaims, a bit frightfully, “ah! — she is gorgeous.” (@ 0:30)

    what i mean to say is if you’re young and imprisoned in a spiral of depressive self involvement, this is for you 🤍

  • The Sacrifice

    The Sacrifice

    ★★★★★

    there’s nothing left to do. you’ve already sacrificed your humanity to be a magnificent self. congratulations, you may watch the world burn and appreciate the poetic aesthetics of the destruction. sacrifice your possessions if you will, your inaction has already condemned us all.
