  • Bug


    of all the feature films in the history of the medium, at this particular moment in time this might be the best one to watch cold with a group and gauge reactions

  • Peeping Tom

    Peeping Tom

    Audio commentary by Professor of Film and Media History at Birbeck College, Ian Christie

    i'm currently pretty deep into reading infinite jest (in other words, I'm trying to impress everyone on the internet by absorbing the biggest, longest, hardest volume I can get my hands around 💩) & this got referred to in the text. amidst the book's absurd constellation of references, sly nods to this picture shine through more vibrantly than most

    Blood Simple

    my personal adherence is that this should be shown to present-day screen-siloed youth (as a public service) to illustrate the kind of dire noir circumstances they'll find themselves in unless they learn to effectively communicate

    btw I enjoyed the Chinese remake of this, but it's attempts at broad humor sacrifice the eponymous mood that makes the Coen original better with each rewatch

  • Slacker



    likely where mansplaining reached its artistic zenith
