    Dreamcatcher

    ★½

    The most horrifying thing about Dreamcatcher this time around was the fact that the word "trim" is actually part of the script as written instead of being dubbed in for the TV edit I watched last time. I don't remember what the TV versions of "fuckaroo" and "fuckaree" are and that's probably for the best.

    The Flowers of St. Francis

    ★★★

    Another very artistically made movie that I'm 100% not the target audience for! But even if I didn't believe religion's ethical utility maxed out at neutral, I think I would still be kind of befuddled by the narrative here, which seems boil down to "friars do the wackiest things!" The only moment where I perked up was when the kids were on the seesaw and I remembered how much fun seesaws were when I was like four.

    I love that this is what someone wanted to do when they got their hands on filmmaking technology.

    I'm already bracing myself for all the filmbros who are going to proclaim this "not that scary" or complain about how Elisabeth Moss's character should have left sooner or whatever. For everyone who actually believes partner violence is a real thing that can happen to them, this is one of the scariest movies ever made. And while it depicts actual partner violence, it also creates an elegant and effective metaphor for abusive relationships: you know something is wrong but you can't see it, and you know that whatever is happening to you is invisible to everyone else.
