    Literally fucking art. Porn has become readily available everywhere and most people don’t seek it out to experience anything more than what its simplest task is. I doubt this had a big audience back in the day either but I seriously question if anyone would even dare to make this today. Not because sex has been removed from films or because the culture has become overly restrictive, although opening twitter sometimes makes it seem that’s the case, but because this…

    High concept trash if you may. On the surface an artsy but disgusting and oppressive exploitation that I hate and love at the same time, however, a natural progression toward Foucaultian philosophy and beyond for someone who has been so occupied with bodies and power structures in her cinema. Denis is a master.

    Inorganic reproduction, lower class citizens and animals treated as weak and expendable confined into a literal concrete cube. There is none of the sexiness related to technological…

    Light Sleeper

    ★★★★½

    Not sure if Schrader is doing Schrader better than ever (isolation, obsession, neverending grind in capitalist society, paranoia, violence, faith… and Pickpocket), and/or if I'm totally swoon by the seedy and gritty New York streets that Lachman captures, his incredibly moody lighting, Been's weird soundtrack, the odd psychic scenes and of course Susan Sarandon and Willem Dafoe. Latter of whom puts forth perhaps my favorite performance of his - what a perfect man honestly. Nevertheless, Light Sleeper swept me away to dark places and I loved it there. Could raise to five stars after more thinking.

    Great performances - Willem Dafoe

    The Last Picture Show

    ★★★★

    Umm… what the hell? I always thought this was like a fun movie about filmmaking but instead it turned out to be one of the saddest depictions of patriarchy and sex and love that I've seen. Idealism of the youth and idyllic notion about the 50s contrasted with a dusty small town plainness and broken dreams of adults, almost none of whom have anything figured out, until all of it is aggressively passed, even forced onto the next generation and…

    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…
