    ★★★★

    Sad and deeply unnerving. Nothing gets under your skin quite like a K. Kurosawa movie. In many ways a straightforward (arguably more commercial) retelling of Cure and Pulse, but also the most weirdly romantic movie I’ve seen from him. That bucket scene alone justifies its existence despite how worn out the entire project may seem thematically. I guess it’s time to finally give Tokyo Sonata a spin

    Just when you think Tati can’t possibly top the disintegrating restaurant segment, that ending hits.

    Seeing this in 35mm with a super responsive audience has made me never want to watch a new release or something at home ever again. If you’re in Chicago just FYI the Music Box is screening some of the greatest movies ever made rn for like two weeks. Instead of hate watching Cruella or some obviously bad shit that sucks ass go see Goodbye Dragon Inn this weekend: https://musicboxtheatre.com/events/back-on-the-big-screen-presented-by-mubi
