    I am a sucker for movies with theater rehearsals/exercises, but this one was really great

    I think I lied when I initially rated this. Anyway, to my mind its near impossible to make a Great anthology film. There's so many moments of magic/beauty & Jarmusch as per usual makes nothing so enticing & cinematic, but a couple of the sections are a little flat (the younger Lees & Buscemi, the one with the mob-type guys) & one outright sucks (surprise surprise its the white stripes). This seems par for the course, though, & they're more than worth drudging through to…

    i watched this on a fuckton of mushrooms one morning when i was a first semester freshman in college. don't know why. bad decision. i spent the whole movie thinking about 'systems,' which i don't think is the right takeaway. regardless, i remember it being pretty good.

    There are parts of this that drag in a kind of egregious way, but otherwise it's nice. The never-ending antisocial v.o. made me think of I Stand Alone, but this is a much better movie than that. The cinematography was sick throughout, can't even figure out what their set up was like for some of the crane shots (which cover a lot more of the run time than you'd expect. Like, full on scene coverage with weird swooping overhead shots). The acting was also great.
