Don’t forget to select your favorite films!
wrote this some time ago, think it worked out well:
forget that i like Errol more often than not , this is no American Dharma, but has some good stuff happening. deflates the importance of some of these counter culture dudes.
hey, still good (give or take a couple clips used as needlessly mean punchlines). we could actually stand to critique patti smith MORE in this culture tbh.
Curtis always enjoyable and fun , people really overthink // project much on to him. a non-film friend (aka friend who has the good sense not to participate in internet film communities) described these movies as useful catalysts for the process of unlearning. think that's a strong articulation of this project.
I love the attention to detail in this movie, the small touches and considered nuances that really flesh out this world, like the white board that John Krasinski has had up for over a year that says some shit like
WHAT IS THEIR WEAKNESS?!?
Haven't been this inclined to walk out of a movie in a long while, profoundly tedious stuff, just fucking drips along. Hereditary is likely the worse movie, but I recall that one holding my attention for the duration of the film.
Clearly constructed to generate marketable talking points that will eventually make up the meme-ified discourse Aster caters to so well:
"uhhh, yea, might think twice before i book my swedish vacation !!"
"tfw u have a bad trip lol"…
