everything here seems like an easy fix with a little bit of ivermectin. 🪱
this is the missing live-action segment from 1981’s heavy metal.
god, this movie needed a ridiculously bad ass metal soundtrack, can someone recut this movie with some black sabbath and ac/dc?
villanueve’s direction is an acedemic course in minimalism and negative space. it’s truly wondrous to behold. this is cinema.
dune’s biggest fault can really only be traced back to its original source material’s age, which…
Julia Ducournau really needs therapy. We finally have her sophomore film after the explosive release of Raw, and somehow this managed to live up to its predecessor. I was hyped for this after only knowing it was directed by Ducournau, but then learning that it won the Palme d'Or I became incredibly excited. It has a lot of hype to live up to and although I really liked it I feel like the experience is going to be different for…
I wasn't in love with Portrait while watching, but looking back at it, I can't imagine a better execution of the premise than this. The cinematography is exceptional (regularly evoking the work of Ingmar Bergman), the script is tight (the relationship of Marianne/Heloise beautifully mirroring that of Orpheus/Eurydice - and the abortion subplot tying into the women's lack of autonomy in the era in which they live), the paintings (something of obvious importance in a story like this) are immaculate,…
Closure is an intoxicating feeling. It promises hope to a desolate, peace to somebody tormented and light to steer away concealed darkness. It was by no means that the young brother and sister were only searching for their father in Greek countryside. They were seeking closure.

Time stands still and places dissolve into one another as the narrative plunges us headfirst into surreal poetry with aching monologues and delicate heartbreaks. Exquisitely scored and flooded with allegories, Theo Angelopoulos' work is wonderously suspended between bleakness and beauty.
I just wanted to say that it was like 11 pm and I told myself I just gonna watch Before Sunrise and then go to bed…next thing I knew it was 3 am and i’m at the end of this movie. It’s crazy how much these movies hooked my attention. Perfect trilogy and Before Midnight might be my favorite idk all three are pretty much perfect. (Sorry I haven’t written a review this summer has been really busy for me)
DIRECTOR WEEK #10: Ingmar Bergman PART II: The Revenge
tuesday: JUNGFRUKÄLLAN (1960)
Ingmar Bergman tackles a frightening medieval cuationary tale that was passed around in folklore and naturally fills it to the brim with religious themes and symbolism. Set to the backdrop of a lush Swedish forest, the story revolves around a medieval family, Märeta (Birgitta Valberg) and Töre (Max von Sydow with a glorious beard); they send their daughter Karin (Birgitta Pettersson) to deliver candles to a church. She…
