Re: Last Film You Watched? VI

if a sensorily assaultive Japanese surreal satire hitman exploitation movie sounds appealing to you, boy can not recommend Branded to Kill enough. Brilliant, and brilliant genre fun. My favorite Suzuki. -Vader Yeah after watching half a dozen of his 60s films, it's obvious that he peaked with this ...

Re: Mank (2020)

Fincher replicated reel change over cue marks, but then AR was not 1.37. Not that such cue marks were inherent to 1.37 only. Not having an AR of 1.37 just felt like a huge contradiction, considering what else is being achieved stylistically. Though I read that Fincher and Messerschmidt did some tes...

Re: Mank (2020)

The screenplay was so dense, and unlike anything Fincher has handled before including TSN. I'm still trying to wrap my head around it. Of course the craft at hand is phenomenal, even the performances. But the writing left me wanting more. It did feel like a history lesson quite a few times. Will try...

Re: Last Film You Watched? VI

The only thing disappointing with Cameron is that he would eventually be giving almost 30 years of his career to Avatar films, when he made some hands down amazing films in the first 13 years of his career.

Re: Last Film You Watched? VI

Been on a South Korean cinema binge with my roommate since I finally got around to seeing The Wailing , which I thought was an astounding piece of work. Other films I've checked out this week include Memories of Murder , Sympathy for Mr. Vengeance , and The Chaser . While I found the latter two to ...

Re: I'm Thinking of Ending Things (2020)

This was damn good. Crackling dialogues throughout. Even more than his writing, I was amazed by Kaufman's direction. Especially the car scenes. Only lacking part is that film had nothing new to say about
