    ★★

    This is mostly scenes of men being terrible to Bergman, Peck passing out every time he remembers something (which, granted, is funny) and a Freud caricature constantly asking for a coffee. The dramatic ending dream-analysis scene is hilarious:

    Bergman: in the dream he was dealt a seven of clubs and says "21"
    Guy: maybe that's a location (what)
    Bergman: yes, Club 21

    ★★★½

    This was good but predictable to a fault. The ending weirdly seems to be (to me) largely misconstrued as happy when really it's pretty clearly depressing as hell.

    Derek DelGaudio's In & of Itself

    The only thing interesting about this emotionally manipulative, self-important, masturbatory cult initiation ritual is wondering if, had I been in the audience, I'd have been pulled in by it. Was half expecting this to end up being one of those old Adult Swim Infomercials. This rubbed me all the wrong ways. Probably should have bailed when he nick-named himself "The Roulettista" after taking ten minutes to describe the plot of The Deer Hunter.

    Watched the Uncut version.

    You've got to be fucking kidding me; I've been looking forward to this for almost a year so I was willing to give this every benefit of the doubt for 105 minutes. By the halfway mark I was hoping it'd be a commentary on white male heterosexual supremacy. But nope, fuck, this is like an arthouse movie made by a college bro.

    The opening is some race-baiting bullshit that never gets delved into: a white body…
