watched Under the Silver Lake last night. some interesting bits in there but

my main feeling is- it's hard not to feel like the creator is a terrible piece of shit with some horrible views on women

we watched age of innocence over the last couple nights. i absolutely loved the first half of it, but lost some infatuation in the constant grind of "i must see you immediately"/babble about obligation and possibility/storming out. i thought the social pressures and delicate tribal distinctions were handled with incredible grace and deftness basically up until the marriage, and then it turned into a churn of broad-strokes desire and propriety that lost exactly the stuff that had been so impressive to me in its first half. i felt like its cinematography fell off a bit, too—the first half had some all-timer stuff for me

also, i'm not the kind of person who ever cares about being able to Relate To characters, but this is the first movie i can remember where the main character was so despicable and in such a particular way that it actually affected my patience for the movie itself

holy smokes michelle pfeiffer is incredible though. i want to go on a big michelle pfeiffer movie tour. unbelievable

i agree with a lot of that IF.

Imo, one of the problems with the sort of continuous template of "i must see you"/"we can't" is that there are times when you sort of forget how out of line it is for them to be continuing the relationship because at points the pfeiffer/day-lewis relationship is not just the main relationship, but the only relationship in the whole film. they float out this idea that newland has this skepticism of class and tradition, and that in part is his motivation for his marrying winona's character (unless i just misread that) and yet there is very little established of their relationship that makes the notion of him being with ellen so painful except for the boundaries of tradition. i do believe that in the time before ellen returned to his life he did love may, so its sort of a bummer we don't see it played out moreToggle Spoiler

you may be right about the cinematography in the back half, i can't quite remember. i think for the most of the second half is generally darker which may play a part. the main thing there was that they kept focusing on the train of may's dress whenever she walked near the hearth so i was incredibly frightened she would catch fireToggle Spoiler

Haven't watched Shoplifters, couple of Koreeda movies among my all-time faves, beautiful, delicate movies, but something like 'Like Father Like Son' was too simply sentimental - hopefully Shoplifters isn't that.

Spider-Verse was solid, looked very good, happy about CBMs making use of some of the crazy of the comics. Felt it still suffered from some of the typical MCU problems of shallow relationships, one-liner reliant dialogue taking too much space, the sense that the movie loses some of its core ideas when you get to the 'save the world' plot and villain interactions.

theater had no issue letting me in to watch their (almost empty) afternoon BI screening when i was 13. different times. the few reviews i had access to weren't great but it was the pre-internet era and i didn't really care much. ended up being a pretty good neo-noir hornthriller though

Hollywood tried to cash in next year with Sliver but that one sucked

What did you dislike about it? I thought it was great. Villeneuve's smooth, icy atmosphere gave the doppelganger story a very distinct, memorable tone, different than the Kafkaesque or more traditionally surrealist one I'd expect. Great ending too. I watched it and Ayoade's adaptation of The Double around the same time. The polar opposite styles made for a nice pairing.
