    I carry a picture of Paul Schrader in my wallet.

  • Burning

    Burning

    ★★★★★

    Probably the most accurate and important depiction of what it's like to live in the 21th century, with your head halfway up your own ass, having consumed way too much fiction and longing for something meaningful to happen and make sense of things.

    Absolutely fucking gutting, a masterpiece straight through.

    Ewwwwww,!!!! Mooooom!!!! Gaspar did his thing on the cinema screen agaaaainnn!

  • Under the Silver Lake

    Under the Silver Lake

    The director doesn't need your help, he can get off all by himself.
    Just watch the movies he likes and skip his.

    After having seen this, you'll walk away thinking about THAT scene. One of those where Cage does something no other actor would even dare to think about.
    In 2018, despite the almost monthly dose of forgettable VOD releases, the Cage Mythos is still alive and expanding after all.

  • Run for Cover

    Run for Cover

    James Cagney was such a singular screen presence, I'm always slightly awed watching him perform. This movie is beautiful, tender and really plays to his strengths.

  • The Man Who Killed Don Quixote

    The Man Who Killed Don Quixote

    Gilliam's still got it: making two-hour movies that, despite their utter hyperactivity, feel like they are four hours long.

    Please stop talking about how long this took to get made.

  • River of No Return

    River of No Return

    I don't say things like this often but....really, there's no reason good enough to watch this abysmal relic in 2018. I thought I had some (Mitchum/Monroe/Preminger/Cinemascope) but I was proven wrong.

  • Fat City

    Fat City

    ★★★★★

    One of the saddest, greatest films I know. The shot of Lucero leaving the hotel while the lights in the hallway are shut off is one of my favorite moments in all of cinema.

  • Avengers: Infinity War

    Avengers: Infinity War

    Well, eh, they fucking did it guys. The best one yet.

    Is it strange if I call Thanos the best performance of Brolin's career?

  • Het Sacrament

    Het Sacrament

    Hugo Claus makes like the Flemish Fassbinder, this has got some strong Chinese Roulette vibes but with considerably more vol-au-vent.
    Mevrouw Praline fucking slays this movie.
