  • Suspiria



    I put this in the background at first but the atmosphere and Yorke’s score swept me away. The colorless production works extremely well with the length of the scenes as you’re focused on the actor’s movements and background events that would likely be harder to detect with too many stimulants and neon colors. Sometimes Guadagnino and Mukdeeprom emphasize the details too much with their off-kilter camera rotations or mirror shots and what have you, but the movement of the film…

    This was a great experience on the silver screen although I wish I hadn’t been so damn tired. It starts slow and the calming swaying of the reeds made me doze off few times.

The film attempts to portray a world of chaos and unnecessary killing but in this Civil War context the cyclicality made literal in the climax ends up coming across uninterested and…

    ”A dog is a dog and a car is a car…”

    I'm convinced this was shot in a week with no real script. Skolimowski simply hired Jean-Pierre Leaud and allowed him to roam free like a rabid dog while capturing some of the most beautiful imagery of the 60s. Leaud goes off the rails in this. He laughs and shouts like a maniac in every other scene, fights at least three people, runs into a pool in the middle of…

    My 1000th log and approximately 250th review after 11 months on this site. The community has been such an inspiration for me in finding new movies to watch and how I perceive them. Every person I follow almost always writes something that resonates with me. I'm impressed how you find things I hadn't considered and your observations make me excited to discover new films and make this hobby last my whole life. During periods like these when I have very…
