Isle of Dogs - I thought this was great. I loved all the designs, and Anderson's rhythms worked perfectly with the medium. One of his better movies imo.

I hope this is coming to the London IMAX. Seeing 2001 on a 70 ft tall screen would be amazing.

best stuff i've watched recently

I Flunked But (Ozu, 1930) - rollicking silent comedy riffs on the closed universe of university exam season dovetailing into a soft pathos

The Boston Strangler (Fleischer, 1968) - kinda like Lang's M structurally, starting off as a wide-net city-hysteria piece (the Deluxe color scheme is low-key beautiful if you like the hues & textures of brick and pavement)

Separate Tables (Delbert Mann, 1958) - underrated filmmaker, just has an innate grasp of the chill and desolation of a resort hotel during off-season. wild seeing Deborah Kerr playing such a repressed and childlike woman when this is the era where she was more likely to get cast as governesses/authority figures (compare/contrast her relationship with David Niven in this to their relationship in Bonjour Tristesse, eh?). Rita Hayworth rules and i have a big thing for Burt Lancaster so yeah this delivers.

Edward My Son (Cukor, 1949) / A Life of Her Own (Cukor, 1950) - Cukor still doesn't get the recognition he deserves as far as expertly ribbing the priorities of heteronormative happiness and the existential turmoil that ensues when that support system breaks down. A Life of Her Own is about Lana Turner striking it big as a fashion model in NYC while perennially unsatisfied with the fundamental elusiveness of happiness or emotional security (not unlike most of Cukor's early 50s work with Judy Holliday). Edward My Son is just dark as fuck and involves Spencer Tracy fucking the world over in order to spoil his dipshit kid (always creepily out of frame). it's dope.

Love in the Afternoon (Wilder, 1957) - currently developing a thesis on this movie and Wilder's fixation on the ugliness of American industrialists and the carnal lunacy that flipsides our obsession with innocence/purity and why the Cooper/Hepburn age difference is key and how to parse the Wilder/Lubitsch geology of influence.

The Maggie (Mackendrick, 1954) - fucking rules. similar nostalgia for Old Britain that's neither reactionary nor patronizing (striking the same elegy notes that Ford would hammer during his most wistful Americana stuff). Paul Douglas is the American capitalist whose cargo is accidentally loaded onto this old scottish geezer's ramshackle skiff. beautiful comedy, beautiful direction, killer vibes. british cinema rules.

Unfaithfully Yours (Sturges, 1948) - tour de farce

Silver Lode (Dwan, 1955) - instantly Western canon

Madam Satan (DeMille, 1930) - first hour kidna shaky but then a bunch of rich fucks throw a masquerade party on a zeppelin and it's suddenly legendary

The Wild One (1953)- Laszlo Benedek
Really enjoyed it.
Image
The Man Who Would Be King (1975)- John Huston
Apart from the performances, this was just ok.
Image
The Misfits (1961)- John Huston
Thought this ruled. Loved the writing and thought all the lead performances were brilliant, particularly Gable's and Monore's and an amazing swansong for the both of them as actors in my opinion.
Image
The Palm Beach Story (1942)- Preston Sturges
Found it really enjoyable.

Yeah, The Misfits is great. I love how crusty and worn down and quietly desperate they all are. Check out Huston's Fat City if you haven't seen it.

The Misfits is an all timer.

Watched Don't Bother to Knock from Monroe the other night and it completely broke my heart. She is so good in it.

the remake of Pelham 123 contains a transcendent monologue from bad guy John Travolta in which he lays out his worldview, which is informed by the time a sled dog shat in his face.

People never believe me when I tell them this film features Travolta saying "LICK MY BUMHOLE, MOTHERFUCKER!"

The Miseducation of Cameron Post - I really like Appropriate Behavior but this was very slight and a lot of the relationships and characters were incredibly underdeveloped/one dimensional. I wanted a lot more; maybe this would have been better as a miniseries. As a movie its fine.

Cries and Whispers (1972)

So far the only Bergman I've watched that's left me underwhelmed.

The September Issue (2009)

Doc by R.J. Cutler (The War Room) about Anna Wintour and the publication of the 2007 Vogue September Issue. Incredibly light and fascinating and balm-y doc, cool haute couture, over-the-top personalities, exactly what I needed to watch on a depressing Monday night. Grace Coddington (in the picture above) the Vogue creative director, was really the standout star of this doc. so funny, warm, relatable, very anti-celebrity, and just absolutely brilliant at designing photoshoots. she (was) the real visionary at Vogue. i think this ran 90 min but I easily could've sat through another hour.

hey! I also saw this the other day and didn't enjoy it as much as the 7 or 8 other bergmans that I've seen so far
I liked it because there's some stuff in there that bergman very rarely uses in other films (close-ups, music, use of color)

The Taking of Pelham 123 is one of the most "silent majority" movies I've ever seen. Beats out Dirty Harry and Death Wish.

Cries and Whispers is mid-tier Bergmeister for me but I would defend it. it's got some of his best photography and his better ones on the subject of illness... of which there are a few.
