    Also, the FINAL MOVIE for me to have watched in my 100 Horror Movies to See Before You Get Killed List

    David Lynch, you fucking weirdo.

    I have gone all this time with not only never seeing this movie before, but also without knowing anything about it! I have only seen the famous poster of…

    ★★★★★

    "In the end, the son will suffer the sins of the father."

    A perfect meditation on man's ability to connect with others and one's self viewed through the prism of our exploration of space.

    Set in the "near future", Brad Pitt is the son of the most famous and important astronaut in the space program played by Tommy Lee Jones. Jones has headed a mission to Neptune to look for intelligent life that caused him to leave his wife and…

    Film #31 of my 2020 - Mubi Viewings

    *****

    Film #7 of my Seeing A Movie From Every Country Initiative.
    * Country: Madagascar

    *****

    A lot of nice moments of connection here and there, this documentary is completely okay, but nothing special. The filmmaker captures good footage and interactions, but ultimately the story that is being documented is not necessarily the most interesting and doesn't seem to have a full arc at all.

    Again, there's nothing majorly wrong with this…

    ★★★★

    This rocks.
    Quite literally, the soundtrack/music is amazing.
    Really lights this piece up.

    It's divided into 3-parts. No idea why as there are no time jumps inbetween episodes and no real discernible reason to break this film apart. But there ya go.

    Beautiful to look at, the art design is ON POINT. So good.

    The plot is deliciously sci-fi in all its aspects. There was an attempt to make some religious overtones, but that part never plays out in any…

    FINALLY!
    We get some damn ROGER MOORE up in here!!!
    Such a welcome relief.

    To me... Roger Moore IS James Bond.

    And what a way to start!!!

    **********

    Oddly, this is my first Michael Powell film. Gotta watch more by this guy. This movie was EXTREMELY well done.

    What makes it so great is the empathy that Powell creates with the killer. Mark (the killer) is just plain nuts. But he's struggling with it. The dude KNOWS he's sick and that there is…
