Snarkoleptic. Amateur critic. Professional snob. I'm relieved to know I'm not a golem.

    Call Me by Your Name

    ★★

    a film that blurs the line between formalism and pure laziness. both without perspective as well as laden with many cinematographic flourishes that don't cohere. and the Stuhlbarg speech at the end is bad for two reasons: it's a performance that announces itself and its dialogue is faux-elegant and literary in a film that's almost entirely not that, both aspects that are obnoxiously asynchronous to the rest of the thing.

    White Chicks

    ★★★★½

    Me in 2009: I refuse to watch WHITE CHICKS because it has a 14% on Rotten Tomatoes and i only want to have “good” taste
    Me in 2018: Film criticism is dominated by straight white male voices that shape, gender, and racialize what “good taste” is, making critical consensus the product of unequal institution, discouraging viewers to develop a critical thought that exists beyond “good” and “bad”, and WHITE CHICKS is one of the most brilliant satires of race and gender in the last fifty years

    ★★

    amazing that Todd Phillips thinks there’s a world—no, a society—in which Wall St bros would know all the lyrics to “Send in the Clowns” tbh
