    Happy 60th, Tom!

    Way more psychosexual than I was expecting, I'm pretty happy about it. I'm sure this must have helped lay the groundwork for Eyes Wide Shut later on.

    Also I really gotta hear every score Tangerine Dream ever did. Holy shit.

    Beautiful and brutal.

    I'm sure not much would be different, but I'd still like to know what kind of world we'd be living in if Harvey had lived to perform his job longer.

    I was excited to see this, but Liu Yifei supports the Hong Kong police:

    Edit: almost all of the core crew is white and yet this is supposed to be more authentic to Chinese culture? The credits OPENLY thank an Uighur concentration camp they filmed near? Not to mention the already widely addressed fact that Disney wanted you to pay $30 for a one time viewing on their streaming service? This fucking movie is screaming at you not to watch it.

    Fuck you, Disney.

    I guess this movie is good if you've ever wanted to watch Clint Eastwood's 88-year-old racist/sexual/sympathy fantasy play out in a two hour movie that feels like six.
