    The Unknown

    ★★★½

    I'd really like to know what inspired Tod Browning to think this was a sensible idea for a movie. "Well, there's a guy who pretends to have no arms... which is great because there's a girl who's SCARED OF ARMS." It doesn't really make a lick of sense, but who cares when you've got Joan Crawford and Lon Chaney in those two roles??

    This is the first time I've seen Crawford acting in her youth, and she's great and preternaturally…

    Lake of Fire

    ★★★★½

    As someone whose idea of a fun Friday these days involves watching emotionally harrowing documentaries and cathartically shedding single tears, Lake of Fire was the perfect rental to bring me into the weekend!!

    This is wonderful from beginning to end. Very graphic, yet thought-provoking. I am vehemently pro-choice and this reinforced that belief by the end, but it was interesting to see the sane and the insane on the other side. Dogmatic religion sure does some fucked up things to people. Also, Noam Chomsky is the greatest human being; I could listen to him talk for decades.

    And Now for Something Completely Different

    ★★★★

    Monty Python is always wonderful, even if their existence has led to 50 years of English people droning on about how superior British humor is to American humor while being incredibly unfunny and dull themselves.

    I'd definitely seen this before as a kid, but I remembered very little of it, outside the most famous bits. When I was younger, I didn't like the animated portions of Monty Python movies, but at 27, I actually like them equally as much as the skits themselves. Holy Grail is still the holy grail of Python, but they were on a kick in the '70s.

    The Old Man Movie

    ★★★★

    The kind of gleefully stupid, Adult Swim-style animated comedy I would've absolutely loved when I was younger and still have quite a sweet spot for now. The animation and voice-acting are really well-done and hilarious, and there are enough clever visual gags and jokes that land to offset the immature focus on scatological humor. The type of film that I 100% understand rating a 1-out-of-5 and a 5-out-of-5.

    This is the first piece of Estonian media I've ever watched, so I now can't help but believe all Estonians are milk-obsessed perverts. Thanks, Fantastic Fest 2020!
