|80 T9||The Tragedy of Macbeth (2021) - 18 Jun 2022
"The use of negative space to amplify desolate soundstages into frighteningly imposing settings owes a lot to Welles' adaptation. Denzel's presence inevitably shifts the gravity of the entire text on him but I think it's effective in bringing out the potency of his downfall."
|35 T2||The Canyons (2013) - 16 Jun 2022
"Took me half the movie to figure out who's who. 2010s Paul Schrader has gotta be one of the more chaotic director arcs I've seen."
|50 T3||tick, tick... BOOM! (2021) - 09 Jun 2022
"The editing is completely insane. Shit cuts every 5 seconds like it's the Taken fence jump."
|95 T10||Revue Starlight the Movie (2021) - 07 Jun 2022
"Normally I don't rate things like this but Furukawa has talked specifically about going out of his way to make this a theatrical experience so it's the least I could do. Sometimes a film will have one definitive image that stays with you forever. Furukawa (and Koide) spend the entire 120-minute runtime cycling through shots like that. It's just not fair."
|80 T9||Dog Eat Dog (2016) - 03 Jun 2022
"Schrader really makes B-movies that feel like blockbusters (and sometimes vice-versa). If the Nic Cage Bogart sequence isn't CINEMA to you I dunno what is. Also https://i.imgur.com/h4c0wzx.png"
|60 T4||The Lost Daughter (2021) - 31 May 2022
"Yes, having kids is miserable, but it's nothing compared to being in a movie theater full of rowdy teens."
|65 T5||The Square (2017) - 29 May 2022
"150 minute pretentious loser movie making fun of pretentious losers. Cannes at its finest"
|70 T6||Night Moves (2014) - 27 May 2022
"Kind of a two-part film here. Loved the first part with its patient, methodical depiction of the handiwork behind a seemingly flawless heist. The first half gets away with hand-waving away the motive behind radicalization as an implicit assumption, but once the paranoia sets in, it starts to feel like a missing piece. Or maybe I can't relate because a dam isn't the first thing I'd want to blow up, I dunno."
|80 T9||Pig (2021) - 26 May 2022
"I don't think I can quite articulate how the pieces of this film fit together, but much like a man's love for his pig, there must be some deep spiritual connection between the dead-end gentrification of the modern city, the Nicolas Cage mythos, and the long shadow cast by the people no longer with us."
|75 T7||Le grand bain (2018) - 25 May 2022
"I'll always have a soft spot for stories about society's chronic losers, and I'll always have a soft spot for niche hobby stories. Wish this could have been a bit more than the sum of its parts, but I'll take dramatically lit fat guys dancing to 80s music."
