Bio: Read my full reviews here! http://mymoviemusings.wordpress.com
I like just about anything; I have my preferences (I find myself leaning towards crime, noir, and epics), but I'm not an extremely discriminate moviewatcher. Chances are, if it's a classic and/or well-received by most, I'll probably like it, so I guess I'm kind of predictable. I also love anything with great cinematography and gorgeous visuals; my very favorites are populated by-and-large with movies that are, among their other merits, pleasing to the eye.
|8 T7||Chronopolis (1983) - Mar 30, 2017
"In which Gods are presented as, frankly, bored with their ability to manipulate time and space and conjure up wonders that would rightly fascinate any mere mortal."
|7 T5||Kanashimi no Beradona (1973) - Mar 29, 2017
"An animated acid trip about a woman who is driven to such lengths of suffering by an oppressive feudal society and Satan in the form of a giant red penis that she becomes a witch and casts everybody into the throes of a hedonistic fuckfest. God, do I wish I'd seen this in college at a party with a sack of weed."
|7 T5||Lyrical Nytrate (1991) - Mar 27, 2017
"Quite literally a found-footage film, assembled from bits and pieces of silents that sat in a vault for years. It's a pretty cool experiment, full of surprisingly affecting moments in which the artificiality of its construction conveys ideas of temporality, deterioration and death. The ending, in which the film breaks down beyond recognition, is a psychedelic trip."
|9 T10||Song to Song (2017) - Mar 27, 2017
"In which Malick fractures and obscures his narrative to such an extent that it no longer resembles a story so much as a journey through somebody's memories and dreams. Somehow, simultaneously, utterly enchanting and exhausting, maddening and brilliant."
|7 T5||Unedited Footage of a Bear (2014) - Mar 26, 2017
"I've totally seen this."
|9 T10||L'Ange (1982) - Mar 25, 2017
"A hallucinatory fever dream of bizarre surrealist imagery, which seems, in its scarcely discernible structure, to hint at an ascension beyond the immediacy and material concerns of human experience. Whatever it is, there's nothing else I've ever seen like it."
|7 T5||Life (2017) - Mar 24, 2017
"Decent enough sci-fi horror that doesn't run terribly deep or bring anything awfully new to the table, but which is slick enough to please fans of the genre (me!) and features a pretty great, grim ending."
|8 T7||Three Colors: Red (1994) - Mar 23, 2017
"Certainly the equal of Blue, and as fitting a summation of the themes and obsessions that defined Kieslowski's career as any other. The ending, albeit a bit too heavy-handed, is certainly unique. "
|8 T7||Meshes of the Afternoon (1943) - Mar 23, 2017
"An intoxicating dream."
|7 T5||Lady Battle Cop (1990) - Mar 22, 2017
"If RoboCop had been made as a Power Rangers episode instead of a big-budget Hollywood film, it probably would've come out a lot like Lady Battle Cop. This movie is so thoroughly Japanese that the hero has an anime theme song and the villain is a telekinetic bodybuilder borne of some unholy union of Pumping Iron and Tetsuo: The Iron Man. I can't believe this movie doesn't have a huge following."
