    Summer of Soul (...or, When the Revolution Could Not Be Televised)

    The greatest thing I have ever seen

  • Taste of Cherry

    Taste of Cherry

    I love Kiarostami’s intentional decision to never reveal why Badi is so intent on killing himself. It is not the reasoning or morality behind Badi’s decision that Kiarostami is concerned with, but the simple fact that a man who lives among such beauty and such life each day could be driven to do something as drastic as taking his fate into his own hands. The film only takes place over the course of a day, but in his performance Homayoun…

    I know there are definitely more but for the life of me I cannot think of any right now. They’ll come later but for now I feel like I can start logging again at peace. The issue is that I I simply forget this app exists

    The Rules of the Game

    Gonna just frantically try and log everything I’ve been watching since the last time I logged. This is arbitrary and I will miss most of them but damnit if I’m not gonna try

  • Fantastic Planet

    Fantastic Planet

    Will forever be one of my favorite science fiction films ever made. Gorgeously and lusciously illustrated and offering a funk rock score that just grooves way too damn hard. The plot of this movie, about an evolutionary and spiritually advanced race of aliens who domesticate humans and mediate so hard that their physical and spiritual essence connects with a satellite planet thus perpetuating their existence and progressing their evolutionary cycle is enough for this to be a good time in…

    Scott Pilgrim vs. the World

    An absolute blast and a nice break in between the torment of finals

  • Eyes Wide Shut

    Eyes Wide Shut

    "Give up your inquiries, which are completely useless."

    Everything is at once entirely incoherent and exactly as it seems. An endless labyrinth of class relations and transactions, with sex as the guiding currency and human motivator. An unbelievably dense, mysterious and challenging piece of art, but I tend to view Eyes Wide Shut as a callous satire of a world and a people controlled by money and class ambition. Each individual's relationship to another is rigidly defined by their position…

    Phoenix

    A final scene for the ages.

  • Dragon Inn

    Dragon Inn

    A nice palette cleanser after sitting through Mortal Kombat. King Hu delivers a thrilling, emphatic cinematic flex. Dragon Inn is a rich and vibrant articulation of a Ming Dynasty Western. Hu keeps it mostly contained and isn’t too ambitious in terms of spectacle but the combat (of which there is a great deal to spare) is as rousing, elegant and gracefully choreographed as any wuxia movie I’ve seen, and the period detail is scrumptiously through. This is a perfectly paced…

  • The Seventh Seal

    The Seventh Seal

    Death is life’s greatest contradiction; it’s the only thing we’re ever truly guaranteed yet it’s nature is entirely a mystery. When we see death coming for us, how are we to react? Do we turn to a silent god in search of a fleeting comfort or clarity? Do we try to reason with it in order to give us a sense of power over something we are powerless to? Do we try and protect ourselves at the cost of those…
