i was super hyped for this because strickland has hit 3 for 3 so far but have to admit when i first saw the trailer, while excited, i thought it looked possibly hokey and potentially a mis-step, but NOPE, he's now 4 for 4. this was so good! nobody else is making movies like him, i feel like he's making them especially for me, and i bet others feel that way too. his vibe is just so perfect. admittedly it loses steam a little towards the end when it doesn't know exactly where to go with the central conceit of a killer dress, but really there's only one place it can go and it does go there and it was alll good. gwendoline christie is great, she is so good with comedy, barry adamson (!) is great, fairly sure i saw adam bohman of bohman bros. fame briefly (he was in berberian too...i guess a friend from strickland's sonic catering band days)...all of the staff in the dress shop are fantastic. there's a duke of burgundy call-back. the soundtrack by cavern of antimatter is really good...and when the main character first goes back to her apartment she's listening to the last track on the skaters wind draping incense ep which is an all-time favourite, i mean from there on, the deal was sealed. imo he's one of the most interesting and exciting auteurs working. i hope he makes a hundred more movies.

Whoa, never in a million years would I think that this Skaters track would pop up in a movie I'm watching.
Anyway, you sold me, I love that loop so much I can't not watch this movie now. Do you have any idea what the source material is? Sounds like The Carpenters or the Partridge Family.

Wanda (1970)- Barbara Loden
Really liked it.

The American Friend (1977)- Wim Wenders
This ruled. Hopper and Ganz worked really well together, seeing Nicholas Ray and Samuel Fuller in small roles was quite a surprise also. Might just be my fav Wenders so far.

Saw this last night and just wanted to strongly agree with all the above. Strickland's best film yet by some distance imo, and I liked his last two a lot. This really nailed both the giallo and comedy aspects for me in a perfect balance. Marianne Jean-Baptiste, Fatma Mohamed and Barry Adamson are all fantastic. Really loved the segments with Julian Barratt and Steve Oram as well. Killer soundtrack too. Pretty much a lock for my end year list

A Dry White Season (1989)- Euzhan Palcy
Really liked this, and how it didn't shy away on the true brutality of what Apartheid really was. Loved how determined Palcy was to make this.
Image
A Life Of Her Own (1950)- George Cukor
This really stunned me, Turner, Milland, and Calhern all gave brilliant performances.
Image
A Man Escaped (1956)- Robert Bresson
Really liked this.
Image
A Shot In The Dark (1964)- Blake Edwards
Really enjoyed this.
Image
Act Of Violence (1949)- Fred Zinnemann
Really liked it, especially the performances and cinematography.
Image
Advise And Consent (1962)- Otto Preminger
Really liked this, Laughton's final performance is masterful.

It's pretty damn good, the attention Bresson places on the plans of escape is something that really grabbed me, and I like how it's quite a hopeful film compared to the other two of his that I've seen.

Yeah, just wanna echo and co-sign the praise for this.

I really don’t think there’s many directors out there who are as good as Strickland in terms of the sound design in film (an aspect of cinema that to me feels like it get less consideration/kudos than other elements?). The whole film was just an incredible sensory experience, and funny too! Loved how hostile/passive-aggressive all the interactions between characters felt in this.

Bodu Saved From Drowning (1932)- Jean Renoir
Really liked it.

Broken Lance (1954)- Edward Dmytryk
This ruled, Tracy was brilliant and probably the most menacing in anything I've seen him in, Jurado and Widmark were really great too, as was the rest of the cast.

Brute Force (1947)- Jules Dassin
This ruled, the ending was brutal.

"Owned: A tale of two Americas" (G. Angelini, 2018)
As a european citizen I was aware of the red lining housing policies, Levittown (didn't know Levitt didn't allow african american war veterans), the decline of cities like Baltimore and Detroit, gentrification... but this excellent documentary was really eye opening: housing policies helped shape a racially divided society.
Can't recommend this enough! it's in the DB

Communion Los Angeles (2018)

experimental portrait of LA's oldest freeway. mesmerizing, very alienating exploration of the urban landscape- abandoned streets, empty fields, traffic-clogged roadways, sad cryptic buildings. each visual sequence contains its own unique frame rate - not the usually smooth 24fps - so that it resembles a photo-book or time-lapse, stuttering in time.
