Saw Gloria Bell last night. It was good but probably just about the base level of how magical/joyous a movie that is entirely watching Julianne Moore for two hours could be. Definitely a nice good movie but didn’t capture much further than that

Be sick if the Maren Ade and Valeska Grisebach filmographies turned up in a dropbox somewhere. ;)

The Portrait of a Lady (Jane Campion, 1996)

Image

Blown away by this. Considering the incredible cast and its obvious qualities it's strange that it's not more revered. Need to watch more Campion and revisit the ones I've seen. At least this Film Comment piece from 1996 saw its greatness: https://www.filmcomment.com/article/jane-campions-shining-portrait-of-a-director1/

Big Campion fan myself but I couldn't finish PoaL. Should try it again though. Have you seen In The Cut or Holy Smoke? I'd be really interested to read some other opinions on those films.

yeah have seen those and piano, but all of them so long ago that i don't really remember them. was too young to really have much to base opinions on then (and was probably colored by the reviews), but iirc i liked piano, sorta-liked holy smoke and disliked in the cut. am curious about in the cut especially, considering how poorly that was received at the time. gonna try to post about them as i watch

In The Cut is an interesting failure, imo. But I'd love to hear a defense of it. I think Holy Smoke is super funny, entertaining and moving in its melodrama; I pretty much loved it. And yeah, An Angel at My Table is really good too. Sweetie completely perplexed me when I first saw it, but after reading more about it and hearing Campion and Gerard Lee talk about it, I've come to appreciate it more; I should rewatch it sometime.

UNDER THE SILVER LAKE (Mitchell, 2018)
i have a long love/hate relationship with l.a. and it made me initially avoid the film, only to now watch it and like it a lot. side note, seeing a film without any knowledge of the plot is still the best way to watch a movie.

Take it back, I've seen Miller's Crossing, Big Fish, and Erin Brockovich but not since I was v young, so I don't remember much about his performances but I'll give them a rewatch due to this though.

Illustrious Corpses (Rosi, 1976)

I've been meaning to watch more of Rosi's movies but I think I just forget about them when it's time to pick something. I find the no-frills procedural type movie to be very balm. This movie isn't fantastic exactly, but it's all right, like Costa-Gavras-lite. Rosi brings the Italian political procedural to the 70s paranoia thriller. I'm not sure the mystery plot made full sense to me, but I think it would make more sense if you're an Italian communist living in the 1970s. I don't really know anything about the Years of Lead, as it were. I was struck by the fact this movie is about a high ranking police detective who... rides the bus places! And is best friends with a communist newspaperman. The architecture of Italian homes is really interesting. The best parts of the movie are probably just him wondering around people's houses.

Here's the Japanese poster, which looks really cool but doesn't really represent the movie accurately imo:

oh trailers is another level. trailers these days reveal so much of the plot that it kills any interest of me actual seeing the film. i don't even wanna read a synopsis.

I don't go that far. I try to read a basic synopsis, like 1-3 sentences. But otherwise I don't read anything else.
