    Paths of Glory

    Embarrassingly late to the game on this absolute fucking unit of a movie. No notes. Not a thing out of place.

    The Killing

    The way Sterling Hayden underplays that last line...I cannot stress this enough...LMFAO

    Drive My Car

    There's a scene in this where a central character, after being showered unexpectedly in high praise by another, reacts by sitting in silence for a few moments, then sliding off her chair and onto the floor so she can play with the dog at her feet. It's such a tender, specific character moment, framed at just the right remove to feel intimate but out of the way. This movie has three hours of unfussy, insightful moments like this.

    EDIT: I also have been listening to the soundtrack nonstop this week. What a treat!

    A Stranger in My Forest

    A regional Christian movie about tame bears, hauling Nitro, and hiring assassins to kill you via Swiss bank transfers in lieu of having to commit suicide by yourself...among many, many other things. Absolutely wild shit. I'm still not convinced I didn't hallucinate parts of this.
