    as a fate of the furious defender (aka the other one with the debilitating behind the scenes conundrums) this sure does play like a lesser version of that. where fate is bombastic melodrama, this is non-stop bombast, chopped up and barely coherent in its own universe’s logic. the script is full of eulogizing on the death of the human action star in a world of tech and drones and chaos, which would be interesting if the film decided to reign…

    joe and i saw this a month ago!!! whoops. Really dug the hopping through time during this one though, probably the boldest structural decision i’ve seen in a hong. The impact of being in a familiar location with different temporal context……..real as hell dude! maybe this one’s underrated???? idk. joe had a good nap though

    Are You There God? It's Me, Margaret.


    when she sees a boys armpit hair and develops her first crush, pirates of penzance, the night they drove old dixie down at christmas time--it's so specific and universal and raw. it will be etched in stone and memorialized until the ground beneath us splits in two that this is a certified banger

    the future we’ve been waiting for is here, and it’s a bunch of overstimulation and severed limbs. this is one of the few times in my life i’ve been overwhelmed to the point of partial sickness by a movie but that’s probably a positive? an attempt at shooting off the dick of pop fetishization and digital addiction before it became all consuming i guess. olivier has a thing for fire and he makes it look good but i’m still salty that…

    This review may contain spoilers. I can handle the truth.

    better than midsommar!! made me realize i was too hard on being john malkovitch, which at least doesn’t have a protagonist who moves a foot every 10 seconds. good lord he made this long, and for what? every moment where the extended length and thoughtfulness of a shot felt like a release of feeling and energy (like beau finally meeting elaine) gets chopped off at the ankles because everything is that drawn out. the ari aster way i suppose. Eggers…

    most i’ve cried in a long long time, though where that used to mean a lot to me it seems to be happening more and more these days. but yeah, everyone who said edge of seventeen was legit was right and then some, watching this in a packed theater with laughs and crying galore was maybe the most damning evidence that streaming has done nothing but bring us further apart and make us more unhappy. oh how i wish movies…
