    “Ultimately, every reduction to physiology is the fascism of the soul.”

    A fucking epic cinematic experience and a testament to the marvel that is Andrzej Żuławski.

    Is there really anything else like this? Floating somewhere between mystic, lovecraftian, heretic, and dialogue written like poetry? Not only that but this fragmented film can exist in pieces and we are still marveled by it's accomplishment? That's INCREDIBLY rare. It's also a shame that the Polish cinema board trampled over this before it…

    Every single time I listen to the crescendo of ''Herr, unser Herrscher'' in Johannes-Passion by Bach I will forever hear that little boy yelling into the sunset.

    The Mirror is legitimately is a rorschach test for the viewer. It's legacy amongst cinephiles is unmatched because Tarkovsky genuinely feels like the hand of God. It's been said numerous times but I honestly have yet to find someone that has mastered cinema the way he has. Pure.

    A film like this demands…

    ★★★★½

    Only Altman can have 100 people in the film and not make it feel like an Italian wedding.

    Top tier entertainment even in the 1990’s with schlock in the right places. Lots of totally weird moments and arguable plot twists but it veers back on and so, you know, whatever. Lyle Lovett is such a lynchian character and that whole scene at the police station was 🥴.

    I will say the score fully sucked ass. At least go full neo-noir and not this chunky percussive shit.

    Also, thank god Gould wasn’t busy for this.

    ★★★★

    it’s nice when a blind pick delivers this well. only on the basis that Melanie Mayron was in this opposite Sissy Spacek and her role wasn’t as prominent.

    a thriller all the way with lots of tension and well paced tailing as Lemmon tries to discover what happened to his son. the first hour has some powerful vangelis synth pieces but that was the only time you get it.

    pair this with hardcore and you’d have a fun double.

    Mucho Mucho Amor: The Legend of Walter Mercado

    ★★★★★

    as a native Puerto Rican I can happily say that this documentary captures the magic that is Walter Mercado.

    I grew up watching Walter on television in the 90’s and always dismissed him as some kook. I was so touched to see what an incredible human being he was. He had but one message, “mucho y mucho amor”.

    ★★★★

    Lynchian, voyeuristic, and blasted against the gritty landscape of 1990’s Nevada. Saw elements that Harmony Korine definitely could’ve picked up on.

    Loved the long pauses, the carefully placed subjects and the strong feminine energy this held. I get to some it’s probably a over-thought art film but it embodies some of my favorite stylings in cinema. So fuck off.
