70 41% Nana (2022) - 19 Feb 2024
"Little bit of a weak third act, but I was pretty captivated with the first half. The scene where the two women smoke together is just gorgeous"
80 68% Section spéciale (1975) - 17 Feb 2024
70 41% Showing Up (2023) - 15 Feb 2024
"You can’t go wrong with Kelly and Michelle, but man I don’t give a fuck about a pigeon. There were also a couple of times where I wasn’t sure if it was supposed to be funny that characters were looking in awe at a bunch of strings and wires hanging from the ceiling. But it’s still a Kelly Reichhardt movie"
70 41% Attenberg (2010) - 13 Feb 2024
"Funny how it seems like formal experimentation at first but it turns out the main character is just a weirdo. Gets surprisingly emotional"
80 68% La Vie de Jésus (1997) - 12 Feb 2024
60 20% L'immensità (2022) - 11 Feb 2024
"Not terrible but not particularly compelling, and stuffed full of indie-movie clichés. The flat, self-serious tone sucks all the life out of the story, even when characters are singing and dancing. Got to the third act and felt like nothing had happened and nobody had done anything"
50 10% The Marvels (2023) - 10 Feb 2024
"First and third acts are miserable, but there is some fun to be had for about 20 minutes in the middle when the leads are just hanging out (and the musical diversion is perfectly silly, lighten up folks). I feel sorry for the creatives and actors, they’re doing what they can with what they’ve been given but, as with Secret Invasion, this has clearly been heavily meddled with by panicking executives in damage control mode. Somebody push the reset button"
80 68% Auf der anderen Seite (2007) - 08 Feb 2024
"About halfway through I was starting to wonder if the procession of insane coincidences and missed opportunities were too much for me, but the third act makes it worth it in the end. It’s hard to give a movie that makes me cry like that less than four stars"
80 68% My Brother's Wedding (1983) - 06 Feb 2024
"I hope this movie is supposed to be funny because it made me laugh a lot. Pierce’s parents are hilarious, and the abrupt, non-continuous editing makes them even funnier. I wish this was a TV show, I could watch this crazy cast of characters for hours more. The guy who plays Pierce’s dad is amazing and the people complaining about unrealistic acting need to lighten up"
70 41% Pusher (1996) - 05 Feb 2024
"Silly fun, sometimes too silly, but well-paced. Mads is missed in the second half"
