  • Horace and Pete

    Horace and Pete

    this might be the great american novel.

    everything i say about it is going to be reductive, so all i will say is this: i am very glad it exists, annie baker is a god, and i will never be happy again.

  • The Host

    The Host

    ★★★★

    Liked it more this time around. Blockbuster-level thrills with the bold creative choices of a real... and I fucking hate this word..... aUtEuR.

    Bong Joon ho is one of those filmmakers who's sensibilities match up so well with what I look for in films that it's impossible for me to really think critically about them.

    Deven Robert Nicotero, on Cher's mansion: "I feel like every house in LA looks exactly like that."

    ok but hear me out: what if a GIRL.... could be a BOSS?

    did work for most of this, only really watched when idina was on screen.

  • Thelma & Louise

    Thelma & Louise

    Really not much more to say than has been said. Thrilling from start to finish. Each character feels so lived in. Some of the best final lines ever. Brad pitt.

  • Prisoners of the Ghostland

    Prisoners of the Ghostland

    this happened to my buddy nick.

    pretty incoherent, but had so many great moments and the kind of go-for-broke creativity that's missing from so many genre films.

  • The Hudsucker Proxy

    The Hudsucker Proxy

    one of those movies where everyone in the cast and crew is so clearly in love with what they do and firing on all cylinders. a balls to the wall ridiculous farce that still manages to ooze empathy for all the quirky, oh-so-human characters that pop out of each hilarious scene. they really don't make em like this anymore.

  • The Room

    The Room

    ★★★★★

    First time seeing in a packed theatre. Maybe the most fun I've had in a theatre since I saw Spiderverse opening night.

  • The Young Girls of Rochefort

    The Young Girls of Rochefort

    RIP Jacques Demy, you woulda loved tik tok.

    Simultaneously reminded me of why I love and hate musicals. When they work, almost every medium of art comes together to create order in chaos, showing the world not how it is but how it feels in profound ways.

    But sometimes they can be insufferable, indulgent, empty spectacle. This movie has both. But the good far outweighs the bad, and it's all worth it for the axe murder subplot.
