    (Q+A with Dea Kulumbegashvili and Luca Guadagnino)
    watched on the great MUBI. really taken aback by not only Dea’s compositions and choice of utilizing the camera in a way that feels so alive in truly using the space and depth within the Academy ratio, but the incredibly immersive sound design work that lulls you into the film’s storytelling. kind of blown away it’s a debut film. here to see whatever she does next.

    Dr. Strangelove or: How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love the Bomb

    “Sir, you can't let him in here. He'll see everything. He'll see the big board!”

    does it get more nervous than this? I don’t know, but it can only get more hilarious. Kubrick goes wild with the 1.66 ratio blocking. General Buck is one of the best characters of comedy. wish Scott did more comedies.

    there was a violent wind outside, and it only made sense as background noise.

    Judas and the Black Messiah

    (Q+A with Shaka King)
    sometimes when you watch a movie for the first time, there’s always a scene early on that tells you that you’re in good hands. this one has that scene in the very first minute of the movie. incredible work.
