watched amadeus last night. absolutely loved it, f murray abraham is SO GOOD in it. he plays an imperious, conceited, conniving, arrogant, back-stabbing shithead who absolutely hates mozart but just becomes helpless whenever he hears his music. there's so many great scenes of him hiding in an opera hall listening to mozart's work with stricken eyes and a look on his face that is totally "mother FUCKER how is he so good"

it feels a little disjointed and if all you knew about mozart was this movie, you might think all that he did was operas. I also like hulce in the role but would've preferred someone with more gravitas and without the laugh

anyway, great epic movie to quarantine with

Contagion kinda reminds me of what's going on in the world right now. I recommend Contagion if you want something about what's going on in the world right now.

Often as not my favorite movie ever made and the reason I will always be suspicious of anyone who kneejerks to "movies of plays are bad."

I'd distinguish those as musicals but yeah sure. Or maybe yer kiddin'.

Anyway, I can't be the only one who's come across this strain in criticism at every level. It's this meme/trope out there usually bandied about when people didn't want to listen closely to the words in a screenplay that wants badly to be about them or the camera stood still too long on too austere a set. The terms "cinematic" and "stagebound" get used as cudgels. Last time I ran across a crop of it was around Blank Check's coverage of A Master Builder, which they somehow saw little to no Demme in despite the 2 hours of closeups on one face, another, or two at once. The kind of sentiment out in the smart-person ether that this review was written as a response to.

no you're right, they are musicals, but both of them originated from popular theater productions. is there a difference between a musical and a play? I feel like play is the general term for any acted performance on stage, whether its a musical, drama, or comedy. I could even squint and call an opera a play, although that's like saying playing mtg is the same as playing cards

Wouldn't quibble with any of this. I think it's just that musicals are insulated from people's ideas of what is cinematic or is not by containing singing and dancing.

man Death Bed is so good. there's a whole chapter about it in stephen thrower's Nightmare USA, which is what prompted me to watch it. definitely ranks alongside any other 70s mood/horror/independent/cinefantastique movie that could be mentioned, with the added bonus that it's about a bed that eats people

watched hands on a hardbody: the documentary (1997)

it's about a car dealership in longview texas's contest where they make contestants put their hands on a truck for as long as possible. whoever wins the truck wins the contest. it goes on for 102 hours. it was really fucking good, like as a look into that form of obsession and small town life. if you like documentaries about small subcultures of people obsessed with banal minutiae like a lot of the best errol morris documentaries i would highly recommend it. it's streaming here

Jeanne Dielman – 10/10


i couldn't even finish this when i finally went to see it at the movie theater after waiting years to see it. it's just too much, too good, too stifling, too emotional somehow even though what i saw was very reserved. i'll have to try and watch it again someday, i think i must have left with an hour and half or so left. i hear there is a big ending

yeah. I take solace when I see artists who didn't produce any (let alone great!) works until they're older

whereas akerman just makes me feel bad about myself

the meetings of anna is a great film about dealing with such a massive success as a young artist (among other things)
