    The Third Man

    ★★★★

    One of the goofier noirs I’ve seen. Orson Welles steals it.

  • Moonlight

    Moonlight

    ★★★★★

    Some of the most accomplished cinematography of the 21st century. Total rejection of realism with its bold, expressive color palette but also one of the foremost examples of subjective filmmaking, much of this made up of shallow focus close-ups. Jenkins embraces humanity in all its shades and offers no judgement, only reflection.

    Don't Look Up

    A prestige SNL skit stretched out to 140 minutes. Insultingly bad and criminally unfunny.

    I was having a not so great day, and this picked me right up. Sam Raimi's belief in the inherent goodness of people and their capacity to forgive is powerful and something that really resonates with me. The last ten or so minutes of this are achingly beautiful and perfectly round off this trilogy. We rarely get comic book movies this good anymore imo. How does this only have a 2.8 again?
