    Mostly cheapoid '30s Monogram tripe, but the last 10 minutes are so chef-kissing-fingers-ly ur-Maddin-esque that I ended up rewatching The Forbidden Room afterward.

    No one's written the Great American Novel yet, but James Gray went ahead and made a movie out of it anyway.

    Star Wars: The Last Jedi


    About as idiosyncratic, stylized, and wacky as these things are likely to get. Johnson really doubles down on the the original’s Kurosawa influences (lotta rain, cinders, and chanbara-style sword fighting here) and the hoodoo mysticism of the Force. (There are points where this almost threatens to turn into “John Boorman’s Star Wars.”) The action scenes—both of the Star Destroyer and light saber varieties—are some of the best in the series.
