Can You Ever Forgive Me (2018) - Loved this. I was surprised by how touching it was. Def cried a bit at the end. It's really one of the better meditations on loneliness and purpose I've seen.

Image

Possession (1981) - This movie has some of the most manic and intoxicating energy ever. Reminded me of the mental breakdown in Days of Abandonment a bit, just in terms of how effectively it pulls you into the madness of the characters. A really gorgeous and enthralling movie. I love the theme of the impossibility of comprehending other relationships, just what goes on between someone you've loved and their new lover, and how it is (in a way) easier to accept if the new other is monstrous with a supernatural hold over your ex.

Day for Night - I didn't really care for this. I saw the 400 blows in college and loved it but this was weirdly uninvolving and documentary-like.

Z - Insane movie. Loved it. Electric and of its time stylitically yet not dated.

i think about possession often, weirdly mostly about how tall and alienating and cavernous whatever city they're in looks throughout much of it. that's the main thing that's stuck with me rather than the subway scene or w/e even though obviously that is also amazing. Great Film. would love to see any other zulawski films at some point.

i watched miller's crossing tonight for the second time and was sort of underwhelmed by it. it's likely my least favorite of the coens' first three, at least.

True Stories (Byrne, 1986)

Finally gathered enough interest to watch this thanks to SOMEONE posting about it on the internet. In a way, I think this is the movie that felt like it most accurately portrays Texas, to me, a noted dumbass. Really loved it.

I watched Police Story for the first time this year as well and the very ending really is something. Totally unexpected. I was going through a bad time when I watched it and I thought Jackie fighting himself using his knocked out buddy's body was the most apt visual metaphor for so much of my mental health struggles.

I should watch the second one.

First Reformed was the all-time worst movie to watch on mushrooms btw.

Would be interested in anyone's take on the final shot. A friend of mine was quite frustrated by it but I think it works (though maybe not quite as well as Schrader wants) but I can't really articulate why. I think it's something to do with anti-climax. My friend was mostly just upset by the fact that in the end Toller doesn't opt for a righteous life, and instead becomes a black hole of annihilation. My sort-of counterpoint was that Toller is most sympathetic when viewed as a symptom of a poisoned world, and that Schrader renders the poisoning of the world so vividly (indeed extending it into Toller's physical health and his difficulty in navigating health care) and conveys the general truth of the current moment so ruthlessly that any other course of events would have rang false, or at least not as true. And that the ending kiss is effective in part because the world is still on fire. It's a petty concern, a stumbling block.Toggle Spoiler

Great movie, though.

Lone Star - amazing. can't believe I waited so long to see this. I thought it was just a murder mystery. I had no idea of the scope of the whole thing. it's insanely, upsettingly topical, re: the border crisis. stellar cast (RIP Elizabeth Peña, so sad). I now want to watch all of John Sayles's movies immediately.

Image

Smooth Talk - wow. I'm so glad I didn't read anything about this going in. it did not play out like I expected. I was so wrapped up in it that I had no idea how much of the running time had passed and how much was left, and I mean that in a good way. Dern is just so good. one of the best ever.

Great movie, though.


Just rewatched last night. Agree that he does in fact kill himself and her coming into his room is what he imagines as he's dying. For one thing, there's the quote earlier in the movie, in his journal, along the lines of "What goes through someone's mind as they pull the trigger?" For another, the other reverend had just tried to come into his place a few minutes earlier and been turned away by the locked door.Toggle Spoiler Regardless, I think there's enough ambiguity to make it really enticingly open-ended, and that's not even one of the best things about the movie overall. I loved it even more the third time around. Great film.

Baby It’s You is my favorite John Sayles movie and one that people seem to ignore. It’s everything that an 80s John Hughes film isn’t.

Lotte In Italia (1971)- Groupe Dziga Vertov (Jean-Luc-Godard, Jean-Pierre Gorin)
My least favourite Godard so far.
Image
M (1931)- Fritz Lang
Rewatch. Didn't like it as much as the first time I saw it, but Pete Lorre's performance still owns.
Image
The Apartment (1960)- Billy Wilder
Rewatch. Loved this even more the second time round. Lemmon and MacClaine's performances are perfect.
Image
The Public Enemy (1931)- William A. Wellman
Rewatch. Still like this a great deal.
