"I like the fact that the title becomes considerably less stupid after you watch the movie."

"First Bellocchio's "Il Traditore" and now Scorsese's "The Irishman". 2019 will go down as the year where two masters say their farewells to the mafia genre with expansive, exhausting, existential epics that focus on truth, decay, and the passage of time. I feel these films will be to mob movies what "Harakiri" (1962) is to samurai films. Mastery at work, uncut."

"Empty. Christianity by Apple. Everything worthwhile about this can be attributed to James Turrell and a fantastic choir. There literally isn't anything else except a goat? running and a close-up of some dandelions... And Kanye's baby. Also Kanye changing the "Streetlights" lyric from "But I'm still not there" to "And God took me there" is really all you need to know about the arc of his career at this point. "

"I love when masterful directors make slice-of-life films. No different here. Almodovar is as poignant and graceful as ever - celebrating the small things in a completely human way. I loved the way this film handles drug use, romance, ambition... I loved basically everything about it. The sleight of hand revealed in the closing scene is just wonderful meta-cinema and adds a deeper existential core to the film."

"A torturous storm to behold. Yet I feel as though Eggers (intentionally or not) positioned the audience in a maddening perspective -- not quite in the eye of the storm nor in the skies above; we spend the entirety of this film in an unreliable purgatory, getting thrown around by the winds. I felt as though I was at the mercy of two untrustworthy men and a deeply repressed GOD SEX mystery, the only thing I really took away from this film was the madness."
