    The Killing of a Sacred Deer


    I loved this and I love Yorgos Lanthimos, and there's probably lots to say about this movie, but the main thing that has haunted me about it, and that I just can't wrap my head around, is when I found out afterwards that Barry Keoghan is not Tye Sheridan.

    This was entrancing and beautiful. Apparently, the only reason Guy Maddin's films never really worked for me before was because they weren't in color. And as an added bonus, Udo Kier is in it.

  • Face/Off



    I saw this as a cynical, shitty teenager, and hated it. Even before revisiting it, I was deeply ashamed of this fact because I knew in my heart I was wrong. I am proud of how much I have matured in the last 17 years as a viewer of cinema, and that I can now recognize Face/Off as one of the greatest films of all time.

    The thing Brooke Adams does with her eyes in this movie might be my favorite thing anyone has done in any movie.
