Three Identical Strangers (2018) - Slight, but I liked it on a Monday! I know the point was that they didn't have the results of the study, but there still seemed to be something lacking. Very sad. Also; Strombo is an idiot, how did he ever have a show?Toggle Spoiler

Image
Slacker (1991) - Good good good I like I like!!

Beau Travail (1999, dir. Claire Denis)

Image

My first Claire Denis. Really liked it. The meditative vibe, the pace, the subtlety of it. Into it.


Aguirre, the Wrath of God (1972, dir. Werner Herzog)

Image

Amazing that that's not even Klinski's voice. Loved the soundtrack.

Queen of Earth (2015, Alex Ross Perry)

Image

Image

Image

I went through a period a few years ago where i thought everyone had sinister intentions towards me and i still don't know how much of that was real or in my head. Anyway, this film reminded me of that. Elizabeth Moss is amazing. Sean Price Williams is cinematographer. He did the Safdies' Good Time and Heaven Knows What (which i watched the other day). I really like his work.

Yeah, I really liked Queen of Earth too. Whole thing felt like a living nightmare.

If you're aching for more Moss and haven't seen it, I can't recommend Top of the Lake highly enough.

I finally saw speed racer for the first time the other day. I'm a big ol idiot and missed catching it in its original run, and so I had had promised myself that I would wait until I had the chance to see it on the big screen. it was totally worth the wait!!! :D

I think it's the best live-action cartoon adaptation ever, was really impressed by how it conveyed the style of the show with all the wipes, super-imposed talking heads, cgi sets. the art design in general is just totally awe-inspiring. it's nearly 2 1/2 hours long, but I could have lived in that world for another hour, easy

I'm not surprised that it was a box office failure, but I think it's in large part due to the fact that it was wayyy ahead of its time. if it came out today, it would probably do great

it's probably my second favorite wachowski film, which is saying something because I love bound

2nd_yellow wrote: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.

I saw this last night and couldn't disagree more. perhaps it's because I saw it in a theater that takes great pride in how they screen their films, but it was LOUD AS FUCK. between the soundtrack, sound design, intertitles, and camera... oh that glorious camera, constantly moving and going slightly in and out of focus, it had a visceral nausea-inducing effect that I found unbearable. the film is 90 minutes but felt like it was two hours. it's like the polar opposite of speed racer in that regard

while I have issues with noe regarding his desire to merely shock the viewer with transgressive content (ersaph put it really well in the a24 thread) to wit:
Ersaph wrote:Despite the Gaspar Noe-ness of it all, Climax was really good and worth seeing. It would be great to see him do a movie without racialized violence, abortions, incest, etc. Just like, a movie full of cool visuals and normal movie characters.

I thought it was his purest most experiential work

I dunno if anyone makes films about how humans are just animals better than noe. they're not fun films, but he has a clear worldview and executes it well (for the most part)

yeah i’ve been tempted to see this again, mainly to rewatch that dance sequence. so great

i agree though that this one felt a little “light” compared to his others, but i think it works. nice change of pace

yeah I agree, walt. the second half was a lot more conventional than I was expecting

I was talking to my friend about it afterwards, and we were both in agreement that most of the people are so abhorrent, that it's almost more of a horror movie just hearing them talk to one another before the turn. the men in particular talking about the women like they are merely pieces of meat is straight-up vile. and that's not a criticism, noe totally nails it
