    appreciated juicy j's contributions to the soundtrack

  • Malcolm X

    Malcolm X


    epic in scope and excellently told.

  • The Fabelmans

    The Fabelmans


    I liked the part where David Lynch played John Ford.

  • The Last Duel

    The Last Duel


    A low-rent Rashomon, but with impeccable production. Visually, it's amazing and the performances are good, but the storytelling kind of lost me

  • Exotica



    good music, good moods, somewhat ridiculous.

  • TÁR



    Pretty powerful. This film has a brief Wikipedia editing sequence near the beginning. Once you settle into the pacing, it's nice to see a film like this, inhabiting the posh world of classical orchestras and high society...

  • Thief



    love the tangerine dream score

  • The Meyerowitz Stories (New and Selected)

    The Meyerowitz Stories (New and Selected)


    I identify with all of Dustin Hoffman's obscure septugenarian artist class signaler namedrops: Stroszek, Buddenbrooks, trashing shitty video art installations at MoMA...

    Good performances, good family dynamics, funny... only slightly cheesy. Another solid Baumbach effort.

  • Everything Everywhere All at Once

    Everything Everywhere All at Once


    you can totally tell that this was directed by the same people who made the music video for lil jon & dj snake's 'turn down for what'


  • Cameraperson



    personal memoir of documentary subjects shot across a career. structured as short vignettes each beginning with a title card introducing the location in the world and some brief context.

    never seen anything like it. lots of variety, but I appreciated the first half more than the second.

  • O-Bi, O-Ba: The End of Civilization

    O-Bi, O-Ba: The End of Civilization


    post apocalyptic sci-fi!

    very fun. amazed that someone could rise up through the soviet-era Polish political system and direct such a cool film with such a bleak critique of human bureaucracies

  • The Pass

    The Pass


    The Soviets produced some super cool animated sci-fi!

    "Sixteen years after their spaceship crashes on a desolate, monster-heavy planet, a group of survivors sets out on an ill-fated mission of self-preservation involving condensed milk, space dragons and goatworms"

    It's available on YouTube with English subtitles
