I watch movies sometimes.
Holy shit it's the first film I've seen on my own time in a while!
"Inside" is an impressive, introspective, existential, and passionate one-man show that follows Bo Burnham as he creates his next special from within the confines of one room for a little more than a year.
He tackles subjects like having an online audience and the associated pressures, how overwhelming and ultimately pointless most of the media we consume online is, our never-ending search for validation and…
I was feeling nostalgic so I decided to go back and watch this. It's actually a lot better than I expected it to be. Animation in many parts is dated, obviously, but the action scenes are pretty good, the story is nothing special but entertaining at least, and the music is decent. But, being a dude-bro toy car shoe-in racing movie, it has its downfalls. There's plot holes and funky dialogue sometimes, and it's full of one-liners, but at least the one-liners land for the most part. It's a good "for fun" movie to watch if you don't have anything else.
Whereas Hereditary was scary and captivating, this movie was strange, slow, and heavily disturbing. Content wise, I didn’t like it. However, the artistry is appreciated. Brilliant cinematography, editing, soundtrack, and direction is present in this film, along with many great performances from the actors, especially Florence Pugh.
I understood the story and I got what it was trying to go for, but I just really didn’t like it. Too much for me to handle.
Whether or not I see another Ari Aster film is up in the air.
