Phantasm (1979) - I grew up on the sequel. I thought for sure I'd seen this before. Parts of it rang some bells but I think I saw it in parts. Anyways t fucking rules and the soundtrack is amazing.

Watched Climax last night, I thought it was gonna be way more explicit than it was but the overall lack of gratuitous violence actually just emphasized the general misery, great soundtrack, pretty good

One of the best things I saw in January was Shura (1971). It's from the director of Funeral Parade of Roses, but this one's much less experimental. It's a violent samuari drama, with enough weird touches for me to watch it as a send-up or black comedy. Just terrific.

Also watched Grave of Fireflies (1988), which was even better. But I wasn't ready for a Ghibli film to affect me like goddamn Come and See.

Also watched:

The Parallax View (1974): Was more into the weird plot and transitions that the actual movie. Like Beatty doesn't take a woman seriously who thinks she might be in danger and the very next scene is her on a slab. That's gold.Toggle Spoiler
A Face in The Crowd (1957): Good!
Elvis: That's the way it is (1970): Good! & fuck the Memphis mafia guys
Nekromantik (1987): Awesomely vile movie. I have had the soundtrack on cassette for years for some reason. It's just blaring synths and omious garbage. Anyway, this is a gross-out film that actually delivers.
Testament (1983): Love these nuclear strike movies, but this was one of the lesser ones. Kids were annoying.

ossos (bones) (1997)

spectacular. idk if i have anything meaningful to say about this, or if is really necessary to say. it just fully inhabits the space and time it wants to and leaves u devastated. captures the same sense of just going through life completely disconnected from your surroundings in the wake of trauma on a similar note to how a lot of my favorite stretches of personal shopper feel... i'm a complete sucker for good ambient sound design and it's incredibly well placed/lived-in here

i'm seldom in the mood as of late (i've basically watched nothing but albert pyun and steven seagal films at home the past 2 weeks). i need to spend more time with slow cinema in general. i've watched costa's colossal youth, every bela tarr and a handful of tsai ming-liang's but i have a deep admiration for all of them.

I went to see New York, New York last night and loved it. I can understand why it’s not one of Marty’s classics, but it was very enjoyable.

It’s just so weird. De Niro’s performance is absolutely bonkers, he’s so ridiculously silly and horrifying. Liza Minnelli was awesome, the happy endings sequence seen today is kind of the perfect blend of homage and parody, and then her performance of the title song really is great. The colors were so enthralling too, there’s a beautiful commitment to artifice in the looks of this film and between the very blatant sets and high contrast deep complementary colors, there was so much to take in.

It’s also just La La Land, which I assume people talked about at the time, but I didn’t know about it. Makes me question why La La Land had to go and exist at all

I haven't seen new york, new york in years but remember loving it. I'd love to see it on a big screen. I like la la land a lot too tho

I watched The Fugitive last night. still a great movie. my favourite bit is when harrison ford says "I didn't kill my wife!!!" and tommy lee jones says "I don't care"

it was also nice to be reminded that jane lynch and julianne moore are in it

new york, new york is one of the most grueling experiences in cinema. I don't bite my nails anymore, but when I saw it a few years ago I chewed the FUCK out of my hands out of stress

the opening v-j day and the phone number sequences are amazing tho

Southern Comfort (Hill, 1981)

This made me really happy that there's a whole universe of Walter Hill work to go see and re-see. The Warriors is fresh in my mind but 48 Hours is not and Wild Bill might be the only other Hill thing I've seen. I'm actually excited about my garbage DVD of Red Heat now. This swamp slog is going to be forever applicable to every instance of boneheaded tranquility-shattering American armed joyride into hostile territory and it's deceptively simple and entertaining in its pursuit of the metaphor. Nice Ry Cooder score. Tension ratchets up at every turn. Love that the guy who fired the blanks like a moron gets sucked back into the silence of the literal landscape. Brion James A+ beard pre-Replicant Leon.

Went to the dang theater to see Gretel & Hansel and hooooo boy was it a stinker. Some decent visuals but totally incoherent and empty, otherwise. High school play-level acting.
