    Shirley Temple attempting to milk a goat is cinema.

    Sixty Million Dollar Man

    ★★★★

    Cronenbergian body horror comedy. Watch Stephen Chow transform himself into a tube of toothpaste, a rice cooker, and a toilet with freakishly large teeth. Oh, and his dick is a garden hose.

    Bonjour Tristesse

    ★★★★½

    A tragic film about skin care. No matter the defenses, there will be sunburns and wrinkles and age. Even the immaculate Jean Seberg slathers face cream onto her cheeks. Preminger choreographs these narcissists in the most astonishingly complex widescreen compositions in his career. Privileged moment: the maid chugging a beer at the extreme left edge, as main characters natter about a casino in the middle ground.

    No Escape

    ★★★

    It turns out there was an escape. This is what I call the ol' switcheroo.

    This is a decent "save the white people from the other people" movie, but on the Brosnan scale I give it five out of five Brosnans. Some excellent Brosnan-ing here.
