    Hiroshima Mon Amour

    ★★★

    "You saw nothing in Hiroshima."

    A personal first introduction to the French New Wave, Hiroshima Mon Amour bends time and turns one day's sunset into an introspection of one's identity.

    No matter how hard you try, you forget. And then, you are reminded of love, in a city that you didn't know was big enough for love, in a person that fits your body like a glove.

    I'm Thinking of Ending Things

    ★★★½

    Very Kaufman-esque, but in the words of Jake's father, "It's over my head."

    Some thoughts:
    Loved the color switch preceding the dinner scene.
    Pretty sure some Cupman animators were involved here.
    The movie is understandable yet also makes no sense?
    The final few dance scenes are very reminiscent of the final scenes in Us, weirdly.

    ★★★

    I've reached the point where watching MCU films feels more like a chore than anything else. I can't wait for Endgame because I just want to see how 12 years will *finally* wrap up.

    Really wanted to love this, but was disappointed to see that this was one of Marvel's weaker showings.

    Story was predictable, acting was mediocre, and the cinematography/CGI was regrettable (I can't see who's fighting!!). Felt like filler material, despite Larson and Jackson's formidable acting chops.

    Usually, the MCU films can cover up their flaws with quickdraw jokes, but none of those jokes really landed here.

    Just end this soon please.
