    I’m convinced Tokyo Drifter’s climax contains all the secrets of the universe. Or at least, just as much as you need to know.

    Check out my intro to the film here: duranaziz.wordpress.com/2021/11/09/tokyo-drifter-intro/

    The lingering feeling of nothingness we try to suppress in our everyday lives. All these little distractions that keep us from looking too far into ourselves, where we know all we’d find is nothing.

    Perhaps the most romantic and humanistic movie I’ve ever seen.

    The Spook Who Sat by the Door

    A truly revolutionary film. Impressive how much was accomplished on such a skimpy budget. It’s a crime this hasn't been properly restored yet.

    Simply stunned. I know it’s John Ford but the images here are like nothing I’ve ever seen before. I’ve never seen technicolor look this good. There’s so much to unpack in Ford’s commentary about Irish society but I was so overwhelmed by The Quiet Man’s aesthetics I’ll have to save looking for that in future rewatches. Man, what more so there to say?
