  • Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind

    Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind

    ★★★★★

    I had watched this film when I was a kid, at that time, how could I have possibly known how the perpetual nature of memories as narrative would spark my interest in pure films like Solaris then stoke the flames for my even more habitual appetite for movies as a constant cerebral escape. They all seemed one and the same when I finally returned to Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind.

    The revisit felt full circle. The film that really…

    300th Review Special – My Theory on The Hitcher.

    All is open ended to what is exactly rolling around in Eric Red's script. It is handy to know that he got the idea for the film on a real drive-away just like Jim Halsey and the idea was born when he listened to Rider on The Storm by The Doors on the radio. Also, the original script was a hell of a lot more gory and dark minded.

    The day…

    Top Gun: Maverick

    ★★

    If you don't care for the other film or fighter pilot fluff flicks, then this is going to do next to nothing to you. If you like Tom Cruise, its will be tolerable with some parts in parcel that are Cruise-controlled. If you don't like Cruise either then you are likely going to dislike this thing. Its like No Time to Die for a bad 80s classics as old and delusional Maverick walks though limbo after crashing his aircraft on…

  • The Invisible War

    The Invisible War

    ★★

    My rating only relflects the quality of the documentaries lack of skill and editing in dealing with such a topic with the tac of a Scientology video. As badly put together it is, it's only made worse by the victims stories, both men and woman, talking into the lens when the responsible perpetrator, a body of government, is maddeningly missing in all aspects of the documentary. As their talking heads plead they have nothing to say that isn't approved by a handwritten script from their superior that is lawsuit proof. Shameful.

    That Moment: Magnolia Diary

    ★★★★

    Second time I've watched a film about making a film. That means something. I really wish I was talented.

    I feel like when PTA is logging his diary for the making of Magnolia he is frantically with a cigarette in one hand and a shot list in the other trying to piece this film that is too ambitious-for-its-own-good together. Me, myself, without the film being made and seen it. I could not imagine the pressure of trying to realize it…

  • Suspiria

    Suspiria

    ★★★★★

    Structurally Suspiria is a film about the fable of witches, but screw structure, because this film is really about two things; suspense and the tools to which films can achieve it without killing it. Whether you like Argento or not -- if this is the first of his films you’ve seen, you must know he just does not achieve anything higher – you can dream, but this is the only Argento film I like and that may be a unpopular…
