87 84% Night on Earth (1991) - Rated 12 Apr 2024
"It’s far from a unique idea that Jarmusch’s films are like poems, but it’s hard not to see this as reminiscent of mid-20th century urban beat poetry, if often funnier and more off-kilter."
86 80% Johnny Guitar (1954) - Rated 10 Apr 2024
"Johnny Guitar should start a band with Synthesizer Patel"
75 35% Civil War (2024) - Rated 09 Apr 2024
"Some really startling and effectively tense/scenes imagery as well as fantastic performances (maybe not so much Wagner Moura) but it never really coheres or tries to be “about” anything in any way. It being so apolitical will bother some more than others but I found it impossible to ignore because without any sense of that I don’t really know what Garland is trying to say. War is bad and photojournalists do a necessary job and that’s it? But it’s well made and the Dunst/Spaeny arc is good"
91 94% Women on the Verge of a Nervous Breakdown (1988) - Rated 08 Apr 2024
"Extremely funny, wildly farcical, loudly radical, and just a complete joy to watch in every way."
86 80% Deep End (1970) - Rated 08 Apr 2024
"DAMN that shit was wild"
86 80% Je, tu, il, elle (1974) - Rated 04 Apr 2024
"First act is me on a good day honestly"
64 16% Planes, Trains and Automobiles (1987) - Rated 03 Apr 2024
"hated them both, honestly, but Martin and Candy did their best"
80 54% Scorpio Rising (1964) - Rated 03 Apr 2024
"Tame and a bit obvious by today’s standards for sure but even removed from the context of when it was released it’s a super effective piece of work with very effective editing and music choices."
83 67% Diary of a Country Priest (1951) - Rated 03 Apr 2024
"Great movie but the whole “I could prove my innocence but won’t because of vague moral reasons that make sense only to me!” thing will always annoy me lmao. Very easy to see the influence on so many other films but for me not an S-tier Bresson."
87 84% Kwaidan (1964) - Rated 02 Apr 2024
"The sets and colours and lighting are all INCREDIBLE oh my god!!! A great tribute to (and in many ways reclamation of) classic Japanese folk tales, where the real horror comes not from the spoopiness but human folly and consequence."
