    Mulholland Drive

    ★★★★★

    Oh, my life
    Is changing every day
    In every possible way

    And oh, my dreams
    It's never quite as it seems
    Never quite as it seems

    I know I've felt like this before
    But now I'm feeling it even more
    Because it came from you

    Then I open up and see
    The person falling here is me
    A different way to be

    I want more
    Impossible to ignore
    Impossible to ignore

    They'll come true
    Impossible not to do
    Impossible not…

    Let's go together, you and I. You'll cast bells. I'll paint icons.

    ANDREI RUBLEV is a film about a painter but we never see him paint. In fact, the closest we come to seeing the artist at work is when he refuses to paint the Last Judgment.

    A Very Merry Bridesmaid

    ★★

    The couple getting married in this were incredibly annoying but the main romantic pair were good enough. Emily Osment was serving some big Capricorn energy and it was good to see her back.

    The Killing of a Sacred Deer

    ★★★★

    This felt way too sterile and rigidly constructed to work as a psychological thriller for me but I’m not convinced it’s even supposed to function that way. This is a hilarious dark comedy. I appreciate Lanthimos’ sense of humor and willingness to ‘go there.’ I was expecting him to move toward a larger moral point, but I came away simply enjoying the comedic situations. Kudos for the finest cinematic depiction of a 360 no scope I have ever seen.

    How about that algorithm, huh? He came up with the entire presentation. 
     
    Space Jam: A New Legacy is not only complete trash, it is also totally abominable in its very existence. I figured it would be bleak based on the little I knew going into it, but what I got is far, far worse. There is absolutely nothing human present in this movie. It is a completely sterile product of corporate excess and greed. "Product" is truly the right…

    ★★★★★

    They told us our gods would outlive us, but they lied.

    This is the biggest, dumbest movie I have ever seen. The logical conclusion of Snyder's superhero vision. It's perfect. I am so happy.
