Re: Portrait of a Lady on Fire (2019)

Yesterday I was just thinking about how much of a masterpiece this is again, and today it got pushed back by 2 months. Broke my heart.

But even copying the gradient font is just inviting mockery. And cheap.

Re: Parasite (2019)

This was a lot of fun when it wasn't being depressing. No, actually it was also fun when it was depressing. I guess my only criticism is what the film does not attempt to do. I think the tendency with a lot of films about the economic and social inequality between the rich and the poor is that they...

Re: The Irishman (2019)

Speaking of the final shot: I read somewhere else that
leaving the door open is both a callback to Hoffa leaving the door open earlier in the movie, and perhaps the final shot of The Godfather.

Re: Portrait of a Lady on Fire (2019)

this is completely lovely. found the formalism slightly stifling, but its visually amazing and daring and the final 5 minutes transmogrify the whole thing into the sublime. its an ode to love and the creative spirit and how those may be one and the same. as far as formal "historical attitudes threa...

Re: Portrait of a Lady on Fire (2019)

Cannot stop thinking about this. There’s a scene in the middle which involves singing and it blew me away. The ending, a nice little coda, is also insane. A truly powerful movie about the power of art/painting/cinema.

Portrait of a Lady on Fire (2019)

Re: Joker (2019)

Here's the thing: this is a superhero/comicbook movie that is a slow-paced, R-rated character study (no matter whether you think it is superficial or even good) without tons of CG explosions or even a happy ending...none of these things are what the general moviegoing public associates with comicbo...
