|80 T9||Grave of the Fireflies (1988) - Feb 18, 2018
"We know brother and sister die right in the opening scenes. Fireflies as the perfect metaphor for their lives -- they shine, play, be together and die early. Most of it is almost an Ozu family drama about generations and families interests clashing -- they first live with an angry aunt, then move to a couple of shelters. Scene where Setsuko digs a grave and tells Seita she knows mom died is just devastating. A candy can as the ultimate sign of hope."
|20 T1||Beatriz at Dinner (2017) - Feb 17, 2018|
|60 T5||Phantom Thread (2017) - Feb 16, 2018|
|65 T7||Black Panther (2018) - Feb 15, 2018|
|40 T2||The Square (2017) - Feb 14, 2018|
|50 T4||Super (2011) - Feb 11, 2018
"It tries to work as a nerd’s wet dream about comic boom dreams — it ends with Wilson alone, looking at drawings he made about the movie we’ve just seen. While Gunn is always good when it comes to ultraviolence and gore material, the humor rarely clicks — the Christian superhero TV show is aces, though, but Page’s character, for example, is so badly written. I love Wilson on The Office but I would love to see a Super with Will Ferrell directed by Edgar Wright."
|80 T9||Belle de jour (1967) - Feb 10, 2018
"Buñuel’s often bizarre, mundane and daring take on a woman’s everyday life dealing with her body, her crazy dreams of torture and the relationship with hideous men — one of them hires her to pose dead-like in a coffin while he cries, other is a criminal who falls for her and eventually tries to kill her husband, leaving him blind and paralised on a wheelchair (that he saw earlier in the same day on the streets). Imagination is always our best shelter."
|40 T2||Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri (2017) - Feb 09, 2018|
|30 T1||I, Tonya (2017) - Feb 08, 2018
"Cinebios that choose an ironic, self-conscious, we-are-better-than-the-characters-portrayed, pop music-driven, oh-we-know-we-are-a-biography-because-we-are-too-cool-to-acknowledge-that way: worst kind of cinebios. "
|50 T4||Fifty Shades Freed (2018) - Feb 08, 2018
"Way better than expected. Foley ignites an even more artificial setting -- wide lenses all over, interiors full of clean personality -- to convey fun sex scenes -- with ice cream -- and nice bits that take some distance from the dated, just boring plot -- Grey playing Maybe I'm Amazed, the Fast & Furious beginning. Too bad this is not just a film about a game of sex and desire of a newly-married couple."
