    John Wick: Chapter 4


    “loving husband.”

    an enervating and feverish display of some of the most ridiculous shit you’ve seen in any action film in quite awhile. frankly, on rewatch it reminds me so much of The Matrix Reloaded: sheer zaniness, weaving from one set-piece to another, and cartoonishly sentimental when need be. it’s more rewarding on additional viewings whereas something like Dead Reckoning diminishes when you return to it. in areas most action films are assembled impetuously, JW4 is assiduously molded to scratch…

It’s seriously a technical masterclass, hubristic filmmaking that plays with aspect ratios, color, dreams vs reality and the fusion of the two, etc. It’s all handled with…

    Three Thousand Years of Longing

    an immensely tedious, pseudo-intellectual, and vapid  “odyssey” that truly feels never-ending. don’t be fooled by the trailer. this has got to be one of the most exhausting things I’ve seen in the past couple of years. a philosophical nightmare.
