    Nicholson did some moody shit in the ‘70s and I’m here for all of it.  It’s weird that this has the same beats as some Judd Apatow horseshit but works because it just seemed less gross somehow back then.  I love the dialogue (motherfucker).  I grew up in Ohio and my rowdy, ornery, fun-uncle’s navy photo hung at my great grandma’s. I picture his service being exactly like this.

    I’m finding very weird micro genres that I’m falling in love with and shit like this and “Blue Collar” are so much fun.  If you can recommend anything else similar please do.

    Oof.  Wasn’t sure what expect here but it surely wasn’t this.  A kid and an adult that acts like a kid annoy the shit out of me for two hours.  This is like looking at a really cool coffee table book on photography while your neighbor kids scream and run around in your yard.  It’s also somehow very pretentious.  I know 2019 was stacked but I haven’t seen a good A24 film in what seems like forever, literally years.  Also…

    The older I get and I realize life is basically nothing (but WAY longer).  I really yearn for the type of aloofness on display in “The…

    A little over the top here and there for how grounded things are tonally but overall this film is very good. Stephen Graham is once again able to put on a clinic no matter how much screen time he gets.  His character goes from explosive to subdued and everything in between.  It’s funny to me  that as a one continuous shot thing this is more impressive to me than “1917” somehow.  Again, a little overly convenient and heightened story-wise but still a triumph and uniquely engaging and memorably fascinating.
