    Bringing Out the Dead

    ★★★★½

    This movie truly has no business being as beautiful as it is. It’s night and day between the shit-ugly digital cinema of the 90s and this slick 35mm sparkling rainbow chiaroscuro death dream. Like straight up beautiful scenes in this that get rushed past you faster than Dave trippin’ through the cosmos to get to that fluorescent retirement home. Even the nastiest, grimiest, puke-colored ER room looks like a sort of oasis of sterile calm in comparison to the chaotic…

    Seconds

    ★★★★★

    Has there ever been a more me-themed podcast than Faust and 1960s movies? Do I reference Martin & Lewis, Phil Ochs, Jodorowsky, Monty Python and primordial consciousness in this podcast? Yes I do! Bart had the brilliant idea of including Seconds in our list, so you'll HAVE to listen to hear about all of the surprising parallels between Seconds and Goethe's Faust!

    Seconds just blew me away so completely. Beautifully shot with deeply compelling acting by Rock Hudson and an infinitely…

    MLK/FBI

    ★★★

    Avoids the personal drama while digging thoroughly into the bureaucratic drama. Predictably damning for the FBI, while being more morally forgiving to King for his transgressions—really barely touches upon the personal fallout. In part because most of these salacious recording are still lockdown until 2027 so we don’t fully know. Personally, I think once somebody crosses over into the public sphere as a symbolic and moral leader the way King did, his personal life becomes not only separated from his…

    The Way We Were

    ★★★★

    This isn't the story about people who drift apart because of politics, this is the story of a woman with convictions (whether you agree with them or not) and intelligence, and a wuss-ass (drop dead beautiful) white boy who has never had to care about or fight for anything in his life.

    They're initially attracted to each other because they each have something the other wishes they could possess. For Redford, Streisand represents the exciting world of fringe living, of…

    Belladonna of Sadness

    Oh god, what a load of shit. The best I can say about this is that the illustration style is beautiful. Oh and if you ever wanted to see a clam go to town on a snail, or an alligator eat out a woman, this is the movie for you.

    This movie is for your penis, by your penis and about your penis. I'm having a very hard time seeing where anybody saw 'feminism' in this other than the weird…
