jin-roh is really good yeah. i can probably come up with some good suggestions like that. although i guess my neighbor totoro is literally the first thing that comes to mind because of how much it feels like an ozu film with light fantasy elements.

ruins rider (vaillancourt, 2017)
really impressive and overwhelming “hypnagogic” cinema. some stretches kinda reminded me of experiences i’ve had trying brion gysins dream machine, particularly the strobe heavy parts. this sits somewhere in between someone like makino and maybe ira cohen. great score by marc hurtado that reminded me of mika vainio (detail heavy, piercing, early electronic meets digital sound design). watching this in total darkness with nice speakers/monitor was a really immersive and cool experience. i watched two other vaillancourts in the same sitting and both felt flat in comparison.

Knives Out - this was fun! definitely a perfect Thanksgiving movie. it wasn't great great but it was solid. all movies should be at least this good.

Parasite - holy shit. masterpiece.

Gremlins 2 - holy shit. masterpiece.

Dolemite Is My Name - I really enjoyed watching this but it somehow didn't really feel like a movie...? I guess that's the Netflix effect. it definitely felt like a made for TV movie. but anyway, the whole cast was great, especially Snipes.

god i hated that movie. one of the most unpleasant times I ever had at the movies.

Its used heavily in the Sopranos and I just watched an episode i where that happens and crescendos into a Star Wars screen wipe.

idiocracy is "infinite jest for people that believe in the death penalty" (somehow had never seen this one before. had only absorbed it through pop culture osmosis)

love and peace really shared way more in common with noriko's dinner table than i really expected or was prepared for. it's a fucking childrens movie that has the most thoroughly realized adult themes out of any i have ever seen. it's what people claim pixar films are. like about halfway through it becomes an incredibly somber film about disposability. like, it seems to apply the island of misfit toys concept from rudolph the red nosed reindeer and applies it broadly to a nation with incredibly fractured and disposable bonds. the fact that the love story at the center of the film centers around a man and a woman that live in relative squalor with no clear family connections seems to draw a straight line between them and the animals that are thrown away. there's a dog in the misfit toy/animal republic that says something to the effect of "i'm not a puppy, anymore, people won't want me anymore." which idk. spoke something direct to me in terms of the disposable connection people have to the things they own, even things they "own", such as their children. it takes a lot for me to be invested in a heterosexual love story, especially in a fantasy movie, but boy this one. that's the stuff.

oh yeah there's refs to the 1954 godzilla abound and when it begins to operate in the mode of a kaiju film it seems like it ties the stuff i mentioned in the first paragraph into a meditation on the man-made disaster of urban renewal and displacement. i'd like to write something more coherent about this film, i think it's up there with noriko's/love exposure in terms of the films of his that have hit me the hardest.

as it's a film that covers a ton of terrain there were a lot of comparisons that came to mind in various ways. i'll list some of them. in terms of like, sad childrens/christmas films it reminded me of both gremlins films in a good way. tokyo godfathers!!!! for exactly the same reason. please watch tokyo godfathers. obviously thought of shin godzilla in terms of other recent fairly well known somber kaiju films. it also had like, shades of what bohemian rhapsody, yesterday, and joker were attempting to do and did it a million times better. joker especially. i don't know. there's really no other better director i can think of at making wildly disparate threads fit into a cohesive whole in the way that sono can.

oh, side note, i watched this in a group and it played really well! another good thing i can say about sono's films is that they're both incredibly entertaining and formally inventive/fun to discuss as they're going on. really pushes all of those buttons. god bless.

i used my parents prime streaming account to watch a good chunk of this stuff lol. as much as i hate making this post an ad for amazon... it's the truth. antiporno and a few of his other films are on there. norikos is on mubi. i own love exposure on blu ray. i kindof want to own most of these films on physical formats. it's a bummer that norikos has been oop on dvd for many many years. i rented a copy of it from my local dvd rental store and burned a copy/made a makeshift case for it because i wanted a physical totem of it.

i downloaded love and peace from pass the popcorn.

watching the hard mike top movies of the decade day 3: Ash is Purest White (2018)

I liked this one. I actually watched all of this guys movies pretty much between UNKNOWN PLEASURES and A TOUCH OF SIN but I must have not liked that one too much cause I kinda lost interest. I did like this quite a bit. wow the feeling of being crushed by the passage of time. it's practically a science fiction movie the way it deals with the environments these people live in and the way they change. I liked it enough I'm interested in going back to check out MOUNTAINS MAY DEPART as well.

watching the hard mike top movies of the decade day 4: Carol (2015)

I've never seen SAFE which I really should, it's just one of those things. I don't care that much for his other movies I've seen. and I'm just so tired of the PRESTIGE PICTURE feeling. so that's why I never felt motivated on this one. but it's a charming movie and I was really into it.
