Southland Tales

Yeah, idk. Deliriously entertaining, sometimes for the right reasons, sometimes for the wrong ones. Deserves tremendous praise for its scope. A really good satire of post-9/11, celebrity-as-god America, basically an absurdist soap opera cranked up to eleven. I feel incredibly dumb watching this because Kelly has so many ideas that I can't keep up, yet at the same time I kept thinking he should maybe have calmed down on his disparate narrative cogs so that some semblance of coherence remained. But then he'd lose the essence of the film, so again, idk. I’ll probably have to watch it again to truly form any concrete opinion on it. One thing is for sure, this film will continue to become more and more relevant.
