Below: 2022 favs (+Tar)
Most entertaining movie from 2022? Was most impressed by the insane filmmaking quality and the timing of the dialogue, gags, everything.
The immediate ending was sloppy enough to leave kind of a bad taste in my mouth, but given the ridiculousness of the entire thing maybe I should’ve have expected it to stick the landing.
Still, will be openly rec’ing this as a fun turn off your brain type watch.
Celebrated the 50th anniversary of this film with an Elliott Gould Q&A and a screening after at the Castro theater. Two years ago I watched this movie for the first time and came away thinking Gould's Marlowe was potentially my favorite performance and character of all time. Well ... his performance in the Q&A may have rivaled his in the film ... I can't put into words how incredible it was. The event cemented this as an all-time special movie for me, even if it's not one of my favorites.
I have finally watched... and Mother of God... I CAN FEEL IT
2001’s strengths work together in a way that I’ve never seen on a screen before. Trusting a director with every single decision for 2.5 hours is honestly a weird feeling.
I keep on thinking Kubrick is still alive because these movies feel like they were made this year, and it is depressing. I’m also at the point where watching a non-Kubrick film seems pointless. I have entered dangerous Kubrick…
This is fantastic. And it’s now on Netflix! Don’t let the 2.5 hour run time intimidate you. This film moves at a great pace and captivates throughout. I was slightly bored for about 10 minutes towards the end of the second act but that’s about it.
Burning never fully reveals its cards - on just about every level. My imagination was consistently sparked and I was thinking heavily throughout the run time. Pay attention to even your smallest of thoughts, I think they all are relevant to how you experience this film.
