  • Episode of the Sea

    Episode of the Sea

    Tbh, gave up after 20 minutes. Looks gorgeous, but I needed it to engage me before the 1/3 mark.

  • Lek and the Dogs

    Lek and the Dogs

    No rating yet - going to have to really think about this one, because god knows what to make of it just now.

  • Eraserhead



  • mother!


    Me, about 2/3rds through mother!: "I get why people might not like this, but I don't get the visceral reactions to it."

    Me, about 5 minutes later: "Ah, okay."

    This is, to use a technical film term, batshit insane. I don't know what rating this gets yet. Give it time.

  • Ernest & Celestine

    Ernest & Celestine

    Well that was adorable. Some beautifully inventive sequences of animation, and an absolutely touching depiction of Ernest and Celestine. That it could be beaten by Frozen demonstrates perfectly the extent to which the Oscars values populism over the art.

  • It's Such a Beautiful Day

    It's Such a Beautiful Day

    This is the combination of human meaning and philosophical depth that Richard Linklater so clearly believes he is capable of, but has never even come close to.
