    I’ve had quite a few movie experiences in the past year that I would consider beyond quantification, which is a very very good thing. Eva 3.0 + 1.0 made me see decades of artistic persona fold in on itself and disappear into a three hour hot fart. The Amusement Park made me worry for film history and how much else we have lost. Old gave me an existential in the theater and I thought that movie was just… okay? Spider-Man: No Way Home…

    Immediate post theater thoughts incoming, so if this is scattershot it is what it is, haven’t been to the theater since December anyway. 

    There are a lot of ingredients in this movie, and trying to balance both noir and superhero aesthetics is fun in theory but I’m not sure the blend ever works in practice.

    Through his love of film and filmmaking, Ayo was a man all his own. His photography and editing styles created beautiful portraits of the various beautiful people that he saw in this world. Do yourself a favor and look at every single thing on his Instagram (@salvadordarkie), it will move your world.

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

    This is gonna be another one of those "I'm not rating this because it affected me more than anything quantifiable" movies, so yeah.

    I feel like I spent two and a half hours of my life watching a cinematic death rattle. The first indicator that American cinema as an art only has about a generation left in it before everything is just this warehouse bullshit. Maybe not even the first.

    Before I go on all my philosophical ramblings let me…
