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.

What should I see in the theater today? I've already seen the Favourite and Shoplifters.

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

Repo wrote:"Enemy" (D. Villeneuve, 2013) -- what a waste of time

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.

Yeah, I liked The Enemy, too... For an average movie it was better than a lot of things.

I'm glad you liked it! tone sincere
the whole thing felt mostly like a vehicle for gyllenhaal's acting
I really liked the atmosphere and pace (watched it only because it's villeneuve) but thought the script was a little clumsy / too ellusive, specially the prologue and the ending (although to be fair it was more the epilogue that I found irritating and way over the top)
didn't like the music score either

Enemy rules -- probably my favourite of his. Don't care for the stuff he's done recently other than Prisoners.

enemy is villeneuve doing cronenberg, i luv it so much, his only film ive rewatched and one of the best horrors of the last ten years

i think more frightening than the final shot is the one after the scene with rossellini with the mother spider towering over the cityscape on some war of the worlds shitToggle Spoiler

id post the shot but im too scared to GIS it

Ah, I'm a fan of over-the-top, radical realizations of themes. And of elliptical storytelling.

Probably what I remember the most (besides the final moment) is just how permeated with vague, hidden menace the Toronto architecture felt. All cold, grey buildingscapes (with a giant gangly spider hovering over them to boot.)

I'm looking forward to Villeneuve's Dune. Though I suspect it will lose a ton of money. It'll be interesting to see if he goes back to smaller movies after that.

enemy is probably my least favourite villeneuve. i don't dislike it and the charisma of it worked on me somewhat, but for me it feels like filler in his output. i'd like to have seen it in the theatre

Your description of Enemy makes more sense now. Prisoners is definitely more of an average movie. I liked it well enough, but it was the only one of his movies that felt filler-y to me.
