Hijacking this thread to plug Passage, a short film I DP'd that you should all watch and tell me your opinion of.

CRITICS RAVE

bumping this since i've only just remembered i said i'd watch it... sorry

the cinematography, sound design, and feel of the piece are really something. i was drawn into it. not sure about the asmr thing it had going on, but maybe it was subconsciously why i was so into the mood when paired with diegetic stuff

good job, dude

Chris Weitz has been directing films for almost 20 years, no?

true true although not all his films are good though

However, I thought this adaptation was lacking urgency and tension. It felt too much like a TV movie. Which might be found ironic, considering it's only on Netflix lol
What did you think of the film?

Halloween (2018)

Really liked it, didn't love it.

"A Zeitgeist Slasher Film?"

Feel free to check out my review of HalloGREEN where I break down the film politically -- Pro Second Amendment?, Michael gets #Metoo'd, Is feminism ruining our favorite franchises? Has Jamie Lee Curtis lost her marbles? Will this be considered the definitive sequel to Carpenters 1978 classic?

*Beware mild spoilers. May be best to read after having seen the film.

Pretty much 2/3 films a day non stop for the last 12 days. Outside of the fest: Halloween (1978 and 2018), 22 July, First Man: The IMAX Xenon Experience, Operation Finale, somehow managed to squeeze in Shame, The Childhood of a Leader and Bone Tomahawk at home too. (note - Don Quixote, Roma and The Favourite I saw before the fest)

Fantastic. Deneuve is such a terrific actress. I loved it, everything was perfect. Goosebumps.

Yeah, saw this recently and was surprised it doesn't get a bigger wrap

I reckon you saw the remaster? It looks incredible, fantastic cinematography, production design and locations. It's a real stunner.
