    Toni Servillo has an amazing crying face 

    Wild movie though. Real like how it used its vignette structure to jump into little moments or stories or characters—felt like a book in that way. Visually diverse too; lots of stylish lighting. Feel like I like it most for its intuitiveness in its storytelling.

    ★½

    The mixing of the soundtrack is very unpleasant. They dip the song for each and every little sound effect—no sense of pace. 

    Why’s everyone so dumb…

    Pls don’t do big emotional speech scenes. 2 in a row? Why? This catch with Dad scene-what is this?

    Groot getting the toe is good

    Drax is funny cause his character is supposed to be funny dumb, but every character shouldn’t be funny dumb. 

    Tazerface not funny. Why make long joke if not funny?…

    Proud of myself for not getting out of my seat for a single thing. Not even an urge to use the bathroom. 

    Had never noticed the importance of Siir’s photo of the Japanese woman until this viewing. Movie’s too big to notice everything.

    Ending shot just kills me.

    35mm with pre-recorded qna with KK

    Still so good. Got a good few moments that are just terrifying and wonderful. The print was in somewhat a rough shape but it’s roughness coincided, a couple of times, with some of the spookiest stuff pertaining to Mamiya—like his power reached to the actual film.

    Bill Murray is the Joker but it’s Dog Day Afternoon instead of Taxi Driver, but then it’s Seinfeld After Hours


    Some great lines. The Cab Driver is such a sad character wth.
