    Crazy Amy's got a new spin-off going from her Main Podcast, and I am here for it. She, once again, is letting me be the guinea pig, for this here, Watch This List Unplugged special series: Insomnia Cinema. It's all unedited, 30 minutes or so, talking about a single Midnight Movie, and I had to bring my go-to example of a delirious 3 AM picture. My audio is kinda fucked, but we recorded this basically as a test drive for…

    Better Living

    Written between August and November 2019, pre-production started February 2020, filmed at the end of July and beginning of August 2020, and finally finished September 2022.

    My Third Short Film, Better Living is finally Coming Soon.

    Will hopefully have some specific details either next week, or the week after, but it certainly won't be long being the festival submission process has already started. Am hoping to have a public screening, shortly followed by an online premiere, but we'll see.

    For…

    Only watched St. Vincent's segment (so far?), The Birthday Party. My boy loves her, so. Fun idea, a few good visual gags, and an arresting final shot, but, doesn't exactly prove it's worth? Definitely seen people fumble with corpses in these exact ways, but taking place during said corpse's child's birthday is a good bit. Apparently she had a show (or maybe it was the whole tour) open with it, and that makes sense, and is p cool in that context. Maybe it would've worked in the flow of the movie too?

    One things for sure; I will forever have a crush on Melanie Lynskey.

    The ultimate joke is that I think Colm's fears might come to fruition for this film; not sure it'll warrant conversation years down the line. But cannot deny I had nothing short of a good time while actually watching, even if while consuming, and immediately after, it was pretty, "so that's it huh". Doesn't help that the ending doesn't work, almost at all, in my book. Feels like too easy of a cop out, which is probably why it's so…

    This shouldn't work. It should be deplorable, convoluted, annoying, and pretentious. It should make me feel sick, I should hate this, I should never want to look at Vincent Gallo, and I should wash this away from my life. But I just can't. It just works. It's magical really. Brilliant performances all around, wild stylistic choices, and a moving tale of a horrible protagonist (that you somehow feel bad for (sometimes)) slowly learning to accept, take responsibility, and love. What…

    This review may contain spoilers. I can handle the truth.

    2022 EDIT: have had this feeling towards this review (and others of its type I’ve written) for years at this point, and never thought to do this until now. While I do still vehemently hate this movie, I would never write a review like this, ever. This much time expunging negative energy towards anything can’t really be productive. But a crucial component of my whole idea towards my journey as an artist is to never shy away from the past…
