    Paddington 2

    ★★★★★

    Who knew such a simple concept like "hey just be fucking nice to people" could feel so profound in today's society.

    It's been a rough year for me personally. Every once in a while a movie comes along and its exactly what you need to watch. This was that for me.

    Letterboxd 8.0: Spooky Season

    NO CRITERIA

    Toho Studios: Nobuhiko Obayashi, we'd like you to make a movie like Jaws. Think you can handle that?

    Obayashi: Yeah, totally doable. Hey, Chigumi, daughter of mine, can you give me some ideas for a film?

    Chigumi: A WATERMELON TURNS INTO A HEAD AND BITES SOMEONE'S BUTT. A CAT VOMITS BLOOD. A GIRL GETS EATEN BY A PIANO. A GIRL WHO'S REALLY GOOD AT KUNG FU FIGHTS A PHONE AND LOSES TO A LAMPSHADE. MATTRESSES THAT FIGHT YOU.

    Obayashi: You're right, those totally sound like Jaws. *makes this movie*

    Toho Studios: ....uhhhhhh.

    I watch this every year, and every year, when it gets to Miss Jessica's psychedelic "I'm gonna be me" song, I'm like "wtf, I don't remember this at ALL."

    Film School Drop Outs, Week 2: Gloria Swanson

    Gloria Swanson is a terrifyingly good actress.

    Billy Wilder's use of actors and directors playing themselves as a way to comment on the filmmaking practices of the day, and the transition from silent films to talkies, was a stroke of genius (poor Buster Keaton looked absolutely fucking miserable, although that might have been cause he was losing [?] at bridge).

    Max von Stroheim might be one of my favorite actors of all time, despite the fact that I've only seen him in this and Grand Illusion.

    What a final scene. Heartbreaking and glorious and sad.
