Southland Tales

Southland Tales ★★★½

I missed the LACMA screening of the Cannes cut of this but thanks to a film friend I got to see the cut anyway. 
It’s still a bonkers rambling overlong fever dream of a film but as America itself has become worse and worse and weirder and weirder since this film came out the film now plays as an eerily prescient warning of things to come. 
Sure it’s still innocent and cutesy compared to the reality we are stuck in now but it’s also a bit more resonant indeed...
