    Japanuary Day 24 
    Duncan’s Pick

    I was a little disappointed with this one. To me it feels like a weaker Tokyo Fist because of how similar a lot of the overall themes are even if the plot is radically different.

    Although this suffers from a very loose and weak plot that the cool concept isn’t able to really execute that well, Tsukamoto remains an editing god and brings some gorgeous black and white flickering visual montages in between the chaotic on screen terror and tension that unfolds.

    Maria’s Selection 

    This was incredible and is a movie that could definitely become a 5 for me on a rewatch. I wasn’t expecting much other than a simple comedy going into it and it turned out to be an amazing sweeping reflection on childhood and maturity and memory with bits of light hearted comedy interspersed. It’s really well done and is the perfect run time for what it sets out to accomplish.

    Summer sun shower cinema. Cicadas…

    Bro…. So so much wasted potential on this movie. The visuals and the editing are stunning and gorgeous but I have never seen a movie that has been weighed down by its terrible soundtrack as much as this was.

    This is deadass H&M yuppie mall reverb drenched radio ready tropical house music playing over what is supposed to be multiple emotionally charged scenes. I can’t take any of it seriously when you have some Chainsmokers…
