"another Abe-Teshigahara colab, and with this one I waited until I'd read the book first. A good move probably: the movie stands on its own, but knowing the book makes it easier to follow without spoiling anything. Both are great existentialist works about the fragility of identity and the attraction of disappearing -- fleshed out as kafkaesque detective noirs."
|44 42%||Nomadland (2020) - May 10, 2021
"yeah it's well acted and looks nice and everything, but it doesn't really speak to me. Like, I'm glad these people are represented (although I'm probably not the target audience), but is that supposed to be enough? this movie went too far in the "can't judge" direction for my taste and I've definitely had enough of the Ludovico Einaudi new new age piano music bs"
|42 40%||Bad Luck Banging or Loony Porn (2021) - Apr 25, 2021
"the good: strong female lead, unconventional ending (not just the final scene). the meh: not much more than an elite's cry for attention "o brothers in the West, look at what we have to put up with in our backward nation""
|64 62%||Return to Oz (1985) - Apr 22, 2021
"very 80s fantasy movie, pretty memorable. is it dumb to say i would've liked some tunes? (although they probably would've been terrible) "
|82 83%||Mr. Hulot's Holiday (1953) - Dec 02, 2020
"I'm now reading Proust and wondering what if M. Hulot had crashed his seaside vacation..."
|73 73%||Save Yourselves! (2020) - Dec 02, 2020
"the most 2020 movie"
|39 35%||The Social Dilemma (2020) - Nov 10, 2020
"the message is essential, good for you (and me) if it was "nothing new", we all still need to hear it. I wish the Jaron guy was the central interviewee, although it's not hard to see why he's in more of a Chewbacca role. The drama part is ironically fun, but the end where AI-Pete from Mad Men goes to AI Heaven is too much."
|79 80%||Ponyo (2008) - Aug 01, 2020
"another great Miyazaki. Don't think the 2yo quite got the environmental message yet, so we'll make sure to revisit."
|84 85%||Kiki's Delivery Service (1989) - Aug 01, 2020
"just a wonderful reminder of what the human spirit can be, without the cheesy devices of Western equivalents. And who doesn't want to be Kiki? I mean come on."
|79 80%||Mon oncle (1958) - Aug 01, 2020
"super fun, it's now my goal in life to do the car bump prank at least once. The subtle social critique is today more bittersweet than anything: this kind of approach used to be effective in audiences---but to what good in the end?"
