Never Look Away [2018]

probably the best treatment of the artistic process, ive seen in a narrative film. the microscopic attention to paint, its texture and physicality. the agony of a young artist who enters art school overconfident and has the wind taken of out their sails. trying to "figure out" their idea and sitting in front of an easel, for days. and the joy when something cool appears on the canvas, that reflects a personality, a history, and yet is also suited to the times. the expansion of an idea into a larger vocabulary of style. wow. and the art in the movie is actually really great! you see lots of it-murals of socialist realism, "degenerate" abstract art, minimalism, richter's photo-painting. etc etc

im liking the recent trend of films about painters :)

I just watched VICE and like...why does this movie exist? Who's the target market? It stunk! Peeeeeyewwwww! Lotta great impressions tho, good job everyone. Well worn make up. Was this movie done by the same gang who did The Big Short?

Edit: ok I looked it up and it is, big surprise they both really sucked. Even bigger surprise (not!) the same gang are doing the Theranos movie. Get ready for another boring drama-umentary with no target audience and way too much blah-blah-blah. It's the equivalent of a Time Magazine article in movie form.

Edit 2:
Ratbags, thank you.

"The Reagan Show" (Sierra Pettengill, Pacho Velez 2017)
great doc!
reagan's was the first administration that had a president performing an administration, their control of the image was unparalleled at the time
the film succeeds in tracing a parallelism between reagan and trump in a really subtle way

Mustang (Deniz Gamze Erguven, 2015) - Loved it. It's very unsubtle but that works for it; it makes you feel and I think that's can be good for a political film of this nature. I love just how much joy there still is in this movie even at its darkest. Apparently her next film completely bombed (34 metascore), that's too bad.

Night Moves (Kelly Reichardt, 2013) - This is one of the best films I've ever seen. I can't believe how good this is. Old Joy was just too minimalist for me and while I did enjoy Certain Women it didn't blow me away, but this movie sets a perfect balance of drama and realism for me, being a more accessible fare while still remaining true to style. The music is incredible, the film looks completely beautiful, the cast is perfect, and the complex relationship dynamics between main characters add so much depth to what would otherwise be a very straight forward story. I'm still wondering what the history of Dee and Josh's relationship is exactly and what we're expected to intuit about it.

First Man was pretty good, much better than I expected and a totally reasonable biofilm (which I generally loathe)

Shoplifters was really good!!

Margaret (Kenneth Lonergan, 2011) - So I liked this and it's clearly very ambitious and, indeed, remarkable for some reasons, but I guess I'm more interested in what people here like so much about it.

I need to see it again but a thing I like about Marg is it’s depiction of an inability to communicate interpersonally but also that same concept zoomed out and translated to an inability to understand the world. there’s great resonance for me in those spaces

woah i JUST watched Margaret too. i think it's interesting that Lonergan is clearly coming from this theater background, and reading interviews where he's talking about writing a script versus a play and the challenge of trying to write a bit of montage instead of dialogue. this is probably a little unfair, but he's sort of barely a film-maker, or at least coming at movies from a different direction. but that's what allows him to make a pretty formalistic film, un-mired by negotiations of montage, pictorialism. gives credence that maybe the best film makers are contemptuous or indifferent to film, or at least movies - that movies lovers might make the worst films, or have the most difficulty doing it. it's a great barely movie, the star power involved makes that part a little funny, basically it's really good

i also finally watched the second half of grin without a cat, and that's the best... my heart bleeds for marker and all that. i think his method is clearly the best, i want to know precisely how jealous godard is. cat eyes would never side with power... like geralt of rivia. maybe it's silly, im weary of being too nostalgic, but i cried for the world at the end. maybe these are last tears i can cry for the world

i would recommend watching

as an intermission

Yeah, this was definitely interesting and the way the film plays with estrangement, from others, from oneself, from the movie itself on the part of the audience (all those scenes where other conversations are drowning out the characters' dialogue, the curtailing of scenes right on the cusp of revealing important information, the way we're sort of hidden from the core of Lisa's trauma). It's a good portrait of the often confusing and problematic exercise of trying to sort out your feelings.

This is interesting and not particularly surprising. I think that the film is unique for this reason but it also gives it a bit a ceiling quality-wise. I think a little more "film-making" craft would have enhanced the final product, hopefully without diminishing its writerly virtues.

I saw If Beale Street Could Talk yesterday in the theater. Very beautiful movie and I loved it a lot. I think I'd put it just slightly below Moonlight but that's because Moonlight is fierce competition and I think the ending of Beale St was slightly weak in payoff. I really loved how intimate and close everything was
