    Scream

    ★★★½

    One of biggest “simultaneously great and terrible” movies I’ve seen in a while. On paper and in many aspects in the actual film, the meta-awareness, the unabashed embrace of real-world culture, and the looseness with storytelling conventions are clever and refreshing. In many other ways, this induces eye-rolls like no other. You can make fun of stupid characters, but it doesn’t really justify employing them. You can wax eloquent about cinema, but it’s not quite effective in the form of…

    Don't Look Up

    ★★★½

    Watching this was, aside from the amusement derived from bitingly accurate satire, in no way a pleasant experience. I wanted to curl up in a ball, maybe cry, maybe vomit, maybe just go to sleep (it didn’t really help that I’m sick); I wanted to pray, repent, shout out to anyone who’d listen that they need to be saved.

    *a few seconds pass*

    “I pledge allegiance...to the flag...”

    I...I can’t speak. My mouth has hit the floor. Forget extrapolating the emotional boundaries set or burst past in Kaufman and other atuer’s unique works (peep Nolan’s Tenet, the other mindfudge I’ve endured recently); I’m Thinking of Ending Things went, in ten minutes of exterior examination, from a Lighthouse-esque experience of puzzling grandeur to a story of depression and agonizing subtleties that has me in emotional shambles.

    It’s perilously difficult to elaborate more on this without going in-depth, but I’ll just say I’m awed. And if you’ve seen it, watch this video to further understand my shattered heart.
