|95 T9||Shame (1968) - Mar 23, 2017
"Viewed March 22, 2017. Not just about how the horrors of love can equal the horrors of war, but instead something more complicated and despairing, a bleak rumination on what it means to really love someone when your world is falling apart around you. Emotional desolation mixed with physical destruction. The Swedish countryside has burned down to the ground. Two lovers intertwined, enveloped in smoke."
|60 T2||Camila (1984) - Mar 23, 2017
"Viewed March 20, 2017. The film challenges the sexual mores of Catholicism by having it be about the "forbidden passion" of a priest, which is an interesting idea, but it never coalesces into anything more than vaguely pleasant and watchable. It's hard to tell if my professor showed this film because he thinks it is a great one or because its stylistically typical of Latin American cinema in the 80s."
|90 T8||Memorias del subdesarrollo (1968) - Mar 13, 2017|
|90 T8||Certified Copy (2010) - Mar 12, 2017
"Viewed March 11, 2017."
|95 T9||Personal Shopper (2016) - Mar 12, 2017
"Viewed March 10, 2017. A gorgeous encapsulation of the boundaries between the technological and spiritual; a moving portrait of grief, intertwined with a rumination on what we leave behind in the digital age; a Hitchcockian thriller that finds suspense in text messages."
|80 T4||Get Out (2017) - Mar 12, 2017
"Viewed March 9, 2017."
|80 T4||Logan (2017) - Mar 12, 2017
"Viewed March 9, 2017. This is an actual movie in a way that most other comic book movies never even attempt to reach. I wonder how much of that has to do with it not being an origin story, but rather something much more elegiac and thoughtful, a meditation on the end of a legacy. I liked it a lot. For the record, this is the first X-Men-related movie I've seen; I imagine I would have gotten more out of it if I was familiar with the arc of this character. "
|85 T6||In Another Country (2012) - Mar 12, 2017
"Viewed March 6, 2017. I guess the description "deceptively low-key" applies to just about everything Hong Sang-soo does, but there's no way around it here - watch as Isabelle Huppert's breezy vacation comedy morphs into a complex study of people and their resistance to change, their inability to course-correct, their captivity to their flaws. The best moment: two umbrellas open in unison."
|85 T6||O.J.: Made in America (2016) - Mar 12, 2017
"Viewed March 5, 2017."
|90 T8||The Piano Teacher (2001) - Mar 03, 2017
"Viewed March 1, 2017."
