The Master (Paul Thomas Anderson, 2012) - The first PTA i've seen. Met expectations. Clearly the work of technical and story-telling competence to say the least, as well as stylistic confidence. For a movie about a cult leader it's ultimately not too surprising, i think you kinda get the characters you'd expect to get, which is maybe another way of saying the characters are believable but believable for the very Hollywood-ized portrait they exist in. I'd like to know more about Peggy's motivations. The cast is obviously just insanely good. Can't decide if Phoenix is better in this than in Her. Been a while since I watched any PSH (rip). It's crazy that Laura Dern still isn't consistently a leading lady, sort of off-topic but man. Maybe she just chooses bit and supporting roles over leading ones?

Black '47 - nah
Overlord - nah, but got me thinking about the trajectory of a young director. Avery directed one feature before this, 'Son Of A Gun' which went grossly over budget and over schedule, forcing a second round of financing, which resulted in a lot of people losing a lot of money and was an absolute disaster of a film. Three years later Bad Robot come knocking.

Ride Lonesome (Boetticher, 1959)

It has its good spots, it's tight and to the point. I think it lost me with the truly awful hackneyed cowboys and indians bit near the beginning and had to win me back so maybe I'm too hard on it. But on the other hand one of the main characters is primarily defined by wanting His Own Piece of Land and feeling horny so it's not like this is really breaking the mold. Some really nice shooting locations though.

Free Solo - can't comprehend the achievement, amazing doc. Can't get to sleep thinking about Honnold's commitment/passion.

The Angela Schanelec film naturemorte talked about (I Was Home, But...) is very good, hoping Grasshopper or some other small distributor picks it up. Most likely going to be at TIFF and/or NYFF

alex honnold seems to be quite firmly on the autism spectrum so while he does come across as a piece of shit in free solo I'm not sure the reasons why are totally cut and dry?

Minding the Gap

Man, so many characters and scenes reminded me exactly of my late teens/early twenties, like EXACTLY the same shit. All the parties, the drunken philosophizing, could have been taken verbatim from friends i've had. Great doc that goes deep into the generational trauma these kids are all dealing with.

The Man Who Killed Hitler & Then The Bigfoot

How could such an exciting title produce such an ordinary film? Atrocious directing of the supporting cast, a plain naan soundtrack and for the most part, TV grade cinematography. I wanted to like this film so badly.

Lookit, I just watched the favorite for the second time. That's my new black swan. That's the one. I'm ready to cheer for it at the oscars. I'm a sucker for quirky girrls. This one had five of them.

Also, they're lesbians.

maybe someone can help with this, but i can't even really think of a contemporary movie where the lead had such a plain moral vision? like very uncomplicated, very plain, but very upfront?

except with a very powerful woman and a male lead who is okay with the woman fundamentally being the hero/savior of his own story?

This looks good. I like that we seem to be getting more movies these days that take seriously the pain of being a teenaged girl. I love the Virgin Suicides but it always frustrated me that it teases insight into this but doesn't really follow it up. Kinda reflective of the central contradiction that film is based on though.
