    They Shoot Horses, Don't They?

    ★★★★½

    - Can I get you something for your feet?
    - How about a saw?

    Makes 127 Hours look like a walk in the fuckin' park.

    Possibly the best adaptation of a book I've ever seen - and the perfect book for movie treatment. A genuinely draining piece of filmmaking, that seems to perfectly balance the intensity and monotony of one of these grotesque events. Has there been a single person who ever watched this and didn't idly speculate on how long they'd last?

  • Andy Warhol: A Documentary Film

    Andy Warhol: A Documentary Film

    ★★★½

    Absolutely justifies its length - I'm treating it as a dry run for the near 1000-page biography that came out last year - but occasionally too dry for its own good. Not necessarily reverential, but could have balanced out the litany of biographers and art critics with more people who were actually there, man. Or at least someone else besides Billy Name.

    John Mulaney & The Sack Lunch Bunch

    ★★★★½

    Delightful delightful DELIGHTFUL. Girl Talk With Richard Kind needs to be its own spinoff.

    Edit: Bumping this up a half star because there is an unbelievable lyric in the penultimate song that I believe will stay with me forever.

  • All That Jazz

    All That Jazz

    ★★★★½

    Categorically not the musical extravaganza I was expected.

    A relentless, mesmerising grind, fronted by a charismatic controlling asshole, intermittently enlivened with some weird, wonderful and occasionally transcendent musical numbers. Seems perfectly fitting that I first encounter it in 2020 - though at least Joe Gideon, the asshole in charge, gets results.

    Also Wallace Shawn!!!!!
