    The Map of Tiny Perfect Things

    ★★★★

    Really nice film. You’d think that Groundhog Day Time Loop films would be super formulaic but both this and Boss Level, which I saw recently, find their own ways of doing it. This one is much more lighthearted, with plenty of small but nice awe inspiring moments and a very mature storyline about not learning when to let go of something. (Gee, maybe that’s what the loop is a metaphor for???)

    The title makes it sound like it’s gonna be some outer space slasher but instead it’s… Actually, I don’t know what it’s about.

    I liked how it was filmed and it’s well acted but good lord, everyone in this is so unpleasant. By the end I was wishing the planet would just hurry up and collide already.

    As an aside, if you want an impending doom film…

    ★★★★

    Really cool vengeance film. Very well made and acted by everyone too, although Meiko Kaji dominates every scene she’s in, as she should. I can’t remember if I put this on my watchlist after watching Kill Bill or not but the influences this had are pretty obvious. Lady Snowblood is better though I think.

    Some of the fights are not always shot very well, with some of the moves looking a little clunky. Makes it all the shocking when someone…
