    The amount of times I raised my hands to my face and yelped “no!” is unfathomable. A tough look at the intricacies of porn production, but nevertheless an objective one. The film is exploratory more than anything, it doesn’t indict as much as it is trying to spotlight highlights of a typical rising career in porn. However, there’s tacit commentary here about what how a particular type of pornography is produced, and how certain pornographic…

    got physically high from this thing. so vibrant, joyful, colorful, and organic. it meanders in the second hour, but what a high note to end on. I think jonny greenwood is my favourite person working in the industry

    and wouldn’t you know it? the gay horny nun movie actually slaps! a very well-polished narrative (just like that dildo) that ups the absurdity of historical accounts by presenting an iteration that appropriately aligns with the fantasy aspect of it all. verhoeven treats it like a tale of mythical genesis, a fairy tale from the catholic crypt, rather than an adaptation of supposedly historical events. there are layers to this thing, far more to it than the two victoria’s secret…

    The King's Man

    ★★★½

    the only thing stopping this from feeling like a guy ritchie movie (in the worst sense possible) is the presence of one (1) female character who exhibits some semblance of actual agency

    an incoherent and exasperating mess until a great final twenty minutes, riddled with questionable intentions: pro-war ideology (?), anti-scottish sentiment, and a token predatory gay man™ (imagine how tired we are). the whole three and a half stars are for the action scenes and gemma arterton

    for all…

    late to the party on this one, but it's nice knowing that I saved one of the best of 2021 for last. this is a masterwork in technicalities and narrative, dense and intricate without being impenetrable. it evokes the most insidious anxieties about commitment to irrevocable circumstances. very relatable even if it's not. need to let this marinate for a while. I'm glad movies are great again.
