    20th Century Women

    ★★★★½

    when you discover in the late afternoon that $2000 was stolen from you by a shady operator of an online poker site, and you aren't really that broken-up by the loss, but more the prospect of being unable to gamble anymore, and you'd rather just not think about it, and instead be distracted and comforted as night falls, well, the first movie you reach for to rewatch on netflix is definitely on your all-time favorites list.

    this movie is a masterpiece on earth, but on it's home planet, it's just a vacation video that everyone politely watches while stifling yawns.

    ★★★★

    i'm pretty sure the fat junk dealer on jakku is george lucas.

    the symbolism of a stingy, piggly oaf who makes money on the repeated scavenging and recycling of parts from a long ago past is just too on the nose.

    and then when he discovers the millennium falcon has improbably roared back to life, he clenches his fist in the air, and with an infantile rage howls "THAT'S MIIIIIIIIINE!"

    seeya, george, and good riddance!

    a new genre is born: the "pedantic comedy".
