Just finished Gaspar Noe's new flick, Climax. Gotta say it was a bit underwhelming compared to his previous work. Most of his films will have a scene or two that hits you like a hammer, but the usual feeling of being uncomfortable while watching his films just wasn't there during Climax.

Independence Day: Resurgence

Every scene in this movie reminds me of the Radioactive Man episode of The Simpsons. Is the director character in this ep actually based on Roland Emmerich?

I was really only half-watching it because it was so fucking boring and embarrassing seeming.

finally watched Sorcerer. really enjoyed it, particularly the sort of mystical horror/man vs nature sense of dread. a little like a testosterone pumped Peter Weir film. but god, Friedkin must have been (be?) such a nightmare of a person. I heard him on a podcast recently complaining about how people are too mean to Trump. megalomaniacs gotta look out of each other, I guess. anyway:

Watched City on Fire (Lam, 1987) for the first time in a decade.

Image

Chow Yun-fat’s rise concurrent with the new wave of Hong Kong cinema of the 80s was p great. He’s so fucking charismatic and that kinda dance scene in the public park is rad. Lam’s frequent theme of men having to choose between law and crime, and how both ruin you but like most Hong Kong flicks of the 80s and 90s, it’s hyper cynical about the cops in particular (he’s tortured by the cops for doing his job as an undercover cop in the name of political posturing between captains). He and Woo both were invested in brotherhood between criminal and cop forged from respect and being in a dangerous life where only they can really empathize. Woo’s was always romanticized and heightened by stylistic flourishes. Lam’s is matter of fact; he’s a journeyman with very disintictive visual cues and preoccupations that hit you by how sparingly they’re used (the string light reflections on the car windshield during the final chase sequence). Hong Kong cinema of the 80s and the heroic bloodshed thing held similar disenfranchisement with law enforcement and other modern capitalist institutions in a time of growth as new Hollywood, but unlike the latter, Lam’s (and woo’s) flicks always had a friendship birthed out of men with conviction - where convinction is a trueness to the self as opposed to mindless obedience to the institution. It’s less cynical in that way. Iunno, this is great.

Lam never had the successful breakout in the States as Woo or that global run he had (and his work never had that ostentatiousness and quickly identifiable visual flair that Woo’s did, which made him a novelty to pluck and run with for a while), but he had a string of all-time flicks (the “On Fire” trilogy and Full Alert). Even his minor straight-to-video fair with JCVD is watcheable (but not good work). This movie is great.

God, this movie is so good and lean and fucking nasty. Apparently, that bridge was really unsafe and Friedkin insisted that they only fortify it to the minimal degree so as not to disturb the look.

The Lobster (Yorgos Lanthimos, 2015) - I've come around to being able to appreciate the way Lanthimos constructs these bizarre living nightmares, but I still am not sure how enjoyable I really find them. They're very unpleasant movies. The women at this place for unlovable losers are all still so attractive.

Saw Cold War last night, and I really don't get the overwhelmingly positive reviews for it. It looked great, and had some good music in it, but ultimately it was just so hollow and devoid of anything approaching emotional resonance for me. Pretty much every time the story introduced a hook for a bit of emotional conflict, it completely abandoned it moments later. It wasn't romantic, it wasn't tragic, it wasn't sexy, it really wasn't much of anything.

Did an 'artworld' double header
Velvet Buzzsaw - This was fine for netflix but I think the need to riff on the art world/money was overshadowing the horror plot. Could have spent more time in either story.
The Square - this movie is great. I enjoyed it just as much as the theater screening.

Clouds of Sils Maria (Olivier Assayas, 2014) - Now this was a very interesting film. I think the most interesting interpretation of the characters in the play is the one given by the director. Sigrid and Helena are the same character viewed at different moments in time. The idea of a someone hating and seeking to destroy through manipulation the person they will later become is already beautifully poetic. The characters have their mirrors in Binoche and Moretz, however both of them identify with Sigrid. Binoche is Helena but is estranged from this fact, or unwilling to admit it, this inability or refusal on her part due to her inability to cope with Helena's age. Helena is an older woman who is attracted to the youth of Sigrid, almost seeking to escape into her youth. Sigrid sees this and despises Helena for it and uses it to manipulate her. Binoche finally becomes reconciled to her "new" identity as Helena after interacting with the new Sigrid (Moretz), who is, herself, still blissfully unaware of her future.

Stewert's role as the critic who is sensitive to "both" characters is interesting. She encourages Binoche to come into her new identity as Helena with empathy for the character/herself and to regard Sigrid as admirable. A little odd as I'd think a more apt attitude toward Sigrid would be one of forgiveness and empathy because she is a pretty rotten person. It seems that the only one who could admire Sigrid is Sigrid herself, or one of her mirrors. Yet if Stewert were simply another of Sigrid's mirrors, how would she be able to extend empathy to Helena?

Overall, an interesting meditation on aging and the role of interpretation in artistic creation.
