    Mmm, I was liking this right up to the ending. That really sunk it for me. I guess the other 110 minutes were still good. Kind of ridiculous action movie. I would say it didn't go far enough over the top. It was weird but didn't go full anime/comic book shenanigans. Mads as a badass assassin can't be bad. Wish he'd shot Hudgens' terrible wig off her head. I'm still not over Rusty.

    ★★★½

    I'm really not sure how I felt about that. Uncomfortable, mostly. It's awkward and painful on the periphery of a greater tragedy. I had a hard time getting through it. It was well made and acted. I don't know what I wanted out of it or what I expected. It's just sad.

    "It's Exit Only."

    This was quite good. Owes a lot to The King of Comedy, but it many ways does not deliver as well as that film. I think it's essential for appreciating Joker though.

    It's a great performance from Phoenix. It does not top Ledger, but I think Ledger is so good because he is playing the Joker, not someone who is becoming the Joker or who was someone else before the Joker like Phoenix and Nicholson.

    ★★★★

    Shelley Duvall is bae. Her performance is amazing in this.

    The film is so beautiful and shot so well. Such a classic. Seeing it in the 4K restoration on the big screen really gave me an all-new appreciation for it.

    It's a great horror film too, just perfectly constructed. The mood, the music, the mirrors, the flashes from the shine, it's all so great. A masterpiece all around.
