    Everything Everywhere All at Once

    Very fun. A little too silly/stupid for its own good at times but you know what the film’s working toward and it feels really good once it gets there. First in line for any film that celebrates Michelle Yeoh’s career. 

    James Hong as well, a legend, + Stephanie Hsu’s outfits were so good

  • The Beguiled

    The Beguiled

    For a film that begins with Clint Eastwood asking a 12-year-old girl how old she is before stating “old enough for kisses” and planting one on her, The Beguiled shouldn’t have ended up being a good movie but it somehow was. 

    Along with Bergman’s All These Women, this may be one of the earliest depictions I’ve seen of what is basically just live-action haram anime (at least for the first half, before it goes full Power of the Dog).

  • Mister America

    Mister America

    A culmination of nearly a decade of On Cinema at the Cinema genius satire and a twisted celebration of the universe of idiotic characters, failed schemes, and numerous fake crimes that Tim Heidecker and Gregg Turkington built and maintained. 

    What was once a simple podcast became a universe of Siskel and Ebert’s At the Movies parody shows for Adult Swim, an action series titled Decker that is more prescient than it ever should have been, a spinoff rock band named Dekkar, and a mock…

    One, Two, Three

    Cagney is a kind of Hollywood talent lost to time. There hasn’t been another guy like him since and there may never be. Another entry into the “movies America doesn’t want you to see” that is really good canon

  • Steve McQueen: The Man & Le Mans

    Steve McQueen: The Man & Le Mans

    1971’s Le Mans is, at most, a boring film. Some really cool shots of the legendary 24-hour race, but it was the umpteenth movie about cars going fast for two hours released within the last 4-5 years, including The Italian Job, Grand Prix, Vanishing Point, Bullitt, and The Last Run… and Steve McQueen knew it.

    It killed him to see everyone make his ultimate racing movie before he could, but he marched on and it destroyed him. It destroyed his relationship with director…

  • The Last Run

    The Last Run

    they put George C. Scott in a mid-tier Van Damme movie but gave it great shots and a killer score.

    I hope whenever Jason Statham does Old Man Transporter that it’s just like this but in like 2039 and a 108-year-old Clint Eastwood directs
