    Hard to Be a God

    ★★★★½

    I am still buzzing from this film. Three hours spent in its medieval landscape swarmed by what felt like hundreds of characters. It was majestic and also completely batshit the entire time. Obvious comparisons to Andrzej Zulawski‘s ‘On the Silver Globe’ and its dizzying approach to storytelling.

    The events portrayed in Hard to be a God all appeared to be swaddled in political and societal mysticism. Delivered in fragmented dialogue, (almost) Monty Python styled acting (according to my friend William),…

    Solaris

    ★★★★½

    Been waiting to revisit this film as it's been decades.

    I personally feel that you must delve deep into the literary influences, the philosophy, and the fact that Tarkovsky was NOT a fan of science fiction. However, there is in fact science, and there is fiction if you're paying attention.

    The science being that there is a idea that our consciousness is something that we create as we live as humans. The fiction being the way we interpret things whether…

    ★★★

    Another time when I’m watching a film and just going, “it’s fine”. So much hype, so much buildup, but what is this strange elevated horror Cronenberg?

    It’s the same Cronenberg it’s ever been, just filmed in a contemporary lens. It’s the same way I felt when I saw the new Jodorowsky movies. What is happening to me?

    Mucho Mucho Amor: The Legend of Walter Mercado

    ★★★★★

    as a native Puerto Rican I can happily say that this documentary captures the magic that is Walter Mercado.

    I grew up watching Walter on television in the 90’s and always dismissed him as some kook. I was so touched to see what an incredible human being he was. He had but one message, “mucho y mucho amor”.

    “You were born under a sad star”

    We all fantasize about revenge, hell I’ve done a bit. Demons is a piercing monochrome blur between the reality and the consequences of it all. I did a few of Matsumoto’s shorts recently and they’re all great and fascinating. This film however has made it into my top first time views of this (awful) year. Holy fuck.

    This entire feature is an excellent achievement of storyline, editing, cinematography and incredible effects for 1971. The…
