    Bitter Lake

    ★★★★

    good music
    a lot to take in at once

    wonder if perhaps a shorter-form episodic format works better for the sort of stories that curtis is trying to tell compared to throwing it at you all at once in a 2.5 hour stretch

    interesting though - definitely felt like a follow-on from The Power of Nightmares (retreads some of the same ground too)
    also there was an episode of The Mayfair Set that touched on the deal with Britain selling arms to Saudi Arabia

    All Watched Over by Machines of Loving Grace

    "From a very large number of computer runs, making various assumptions, adopting various maxima and minima, there is in fact a general forecast of a breakdown of world society in the first decades of the next century."
    -club of rome spokesman, 1971

    This review may contain spoilers. I can handle the truth.

    mermaid pussy got me actin strange

    very dreamlike in that Lynchian fashion where you're never quite sure where the line between reality and delusion lies

    but yeah I loved this
    definitely worth the wait to see this in the cinema (I may even consider going back and seeing it again while I can)

    also there was more than one person humming that credits sea shanty as they left (including me)
