    Dick Johnson Is Dead

    ★★★★

    how sweet it is

    i can only hope to remember or be remembered in this way when i grow old

  • Bacurau

    Bacurau

    ★★★★½

    collectivism idealized and literally pitted against colonialism in an exploitation film. braxploitation? it’s so good.


    also the perfect anti-technocracy film in that it simply never gives an inch to modern technology. it refuses to acknowledge the instruments of that force. you don’t even know why anything happens in here, it doesn’t matter. (they’re no luddites themselves, they just make their own decisions about what they adopt. this is not unlike how the amish adopt tech from what i’ve heard)

  • Enola Holmes

    Enola Holmes

    ★★

    the most confusing thing is that they spend the whole movie talking about this deadlocked vote in the house of lords and they never tell you what the hell they were voting for or why it matters. the mother ends up being a side plot for a similar political issue but the two never connect?

  • Sibyl

    Sibyl

    ★★★½

    this gets so funny. there's a few points where it's a little slow or melodramatic but then they hit you with lines like a kid telling his mom "im afraid i lack the tools to make it in life".

  • A Hidden Life

    A Hidden Life

    ★★★★

    Someday, I'll paint a true Christ

    came for the beautiful hillsides and trad propaganda, stayed for the malick-style philosophical monologues and one liners.

  • The Devil All the Time

    The Devil All the Time

    ★★★½

    quite bleak. not what happens, but just how pointless it all is. probably worth it to see how fuckin hilarious Robert Pattinson's performance was

  • Unpregnant

    Unpregnant

    ★★★

    its sweet and it's abortion-normalizing and haley lu richardson is great at whatever she does but.... its just kinda fine. formulaic. also lmao at having $1000 saved up in high school, or being able to disappear for two days without parents noticing.

  • M

    M

    ★★★

    first half is a cool reminder that the reddit detective or q anon follower archetype has existed as long as civilization has. the rest is weird and too long

  • Wolfwalkers

    Wolfwalkers

    ★★★★

    awoooou :3

  • Dune

    Dune

    ★★★

    Everyone's talking about big worm, and I can now confirm they are big.

    Can't wait to hear Timothee declare jihad.

  • Shadows

    Shadows

    ★★★★

    Look, Bennie. It's just a problem with the races, that's all.

    i love to see this version of new york. it feels so lived in. everyone seems like they belong there, even when they don't. racism present just as a matter of fact, not as a museum exhibit.

    it's my first cassavetes, already i understand the hype

  • Fallen Angels

    Fallen Angels

    ★★★★

    happy 25 yr anniversary to the first wong kar wai film i saw at a random local film festival showing, not knowing i would think about it all the time ever after.

    in retrospect, it's not the best of his filmography, but it's more than enough to introduce me to his brand of yearning and cool.
