    First Man

    ★★½

    Chazelle and company might have had something here (the inevitably of death juxtaposed with the infinite possibility of the cosmos), but First Man ultimately chooses the path of mundanity. The domestic drama components of the film end up being far more interesting than its repetitive space sequences.

  • Invasion of the Bee Girls

    Invasion of the Bee Girls

    ★★

    The premise of this film is that men are murdered by bee women who literally fuck them to death, but the sex scenes in this are some of the most banal I've ever seen. Perhaps they simply bored their victims to death with mediocre sex?

    Mandy

    ★★★

    Mandy takes awhile to get to the fireworks factory, but once it gets there it burns the place to the ground. Nicolas Cage lights a cigarette off a flaming decapitated head and it’s like the 10th craziest thing that happens in the film.

  • Vertigo

    Vertigo

    ★★★★★

    Vertigo was already my favorite Hitchcock (and one of my favorite films), and yet seeing this on the big screen felt like an entirely new experience. Kim Novak, now transformed into the woman Jimmy Stewart's obsessive Scottie desires, emerging from the bathroom bathed in glowing green light ranks among my favorite scenes in all of cinema.
