    I'm a Cyborg, But That's OK

    The opening scene is some of the most distractingly overstylized things I ever watched. But it gets better and better and better. It's very cute, very charming, very interesting and a blast to watch (Especially the third quadrant of it)

  • Y Tu Mamá También

    Y Tu Mamá También

    Love the vibes, How it captures the time and the place, How the beautiful cinematography and long takes here are immersive more than (showing off). I love the tone, contrasting the flame of youth with the bigger world. Sometimes energetic, sometimes melancholic, sometimes ironic, something more than one thing at the same time.
    I'm mixed on the voice over, The context it gives to each scene is a big effective part of the "tone". BUT every time it starts, and…

  • Oslo, August 31st

    Oslo, August 31st

    ★★★★½

    I thought to myself "This fits into this weird subgenre of "A movie that takes place during one day in the life of a depressed man that goes around and has interesting conversations about the purpose and meaning of it all" that includes "Taste of Cherry", "The Fire Within", "Naked", "Sult" and "The Last dive" (AND the first feature length script I ever wrote). But a friend told me it was loosely based on the same novel as "The Fire…

    Bo Burnham: Inside

    ★★★★½

    "Well, Well
    Look who's watching "Inside" again
    Went out to look for a reason to be sad again"

  • Ash Is Purest White

    Ash Is Purest White

    There's not a scene I "didn't" like in this. On the contrary, It's very well made, interestingly written and we'll directed. The slow pace has some melancholy and magic to it. And the main character is interesting. Solid and cold and cunning from the outside but very vulnerable and attached. But when this attachment spans for 2 decades it borders on the ubsurd.
    And I get it, people who don't change in rapidly changing times. (And the film's use of…

  • Bo Burnham: Inside

    Bo Burnham: Inside

    ★★★★½

    VERY INTENSE
    A vehicle for self loathing that made me actually worried about Bo. Bo left stand up comedy because it really affected his mental health. and he seemed to get better until COVID. So, here you watch a man at his lowest point mentally yet his HIGHEST point filmmaking wise. Masterfully shot, acted and edited. This along with Panahi's "This is not a film" are a proof that you only need a camera, your room, your voice and passion…

  • Paterson

    Paterson

    ★★★★★

    Mark Kermode starts his review of the film by saying: "Adam Driver is a driver called Paterson in Paterson in Paterson". Also the poems feel very much like David Byrne lyrics (Specially his post Talking Heads era where no one was there to put to lessen his self indulgence)

    The first 5 stars of May, Can you fuckin' believe that? Jesus Christ I became tough. I still have one small problem with this film (That it's a film about the…

    ★★★★

    What I thought would be a lesser Cronenberg film, turns out to be one of his best (for me)? creative,creepy, uncanny, meta, VERY playful and on the nose. I love the guy

  • The Red and the White

    The Red and the White

    The longer a shot goes on, the more it "takes hold" of you. The more it feels like "real time". it makes you "face" what's in the frame. A cut -then- is a release . a blink, a chance to "look away"
    The Red and The White is a very well shot and bold film. It's also hard to watch or engage with. It takes place during a day in the Russian civil war in 1921,Between the "reds" (Communists) and…

  • On the Silver Globe

    On the Silver Globe

    STARTS VERY VERY GOOD, Something very larger than life and great in scope, ambition and influence. The camera moves from one iconic painting to the next. it deserves a 5 for how it looks alone. An epic about humanity yet a journey into the depths of the human mind. it's about our place halfway between an animal and a God

    Then it just goes on and on and on, and gets more terrible at introducing us and making us know…

  • This Must Be the Place

    This Must Be the Place

    Weird, obnoxious, interesting, messy. tonally all over the place, sweet, funny, emotional, pretentious, and beautiful.
    The song "This must be the place" is played like 7 times in the film

  • Seven Beauties

    Seven Beauties

    ★★★★½

    A VERY BLACK comedy about fragile masculinity and the Holocaust, you know, 2 average topics to make comedies of. It sometimes is very funny in a sick way, sometimes it feels cringe worthy (only a few times), sometimes very awkward to watch, and sometimes gets as dark as a European film about the ww2 can get (in other words, traumatizing), and it is ALWAYS smart and interesting to watch.
    Is it a brutal parody and insult to the right wing?…
