I saw a screening of My Life as a Dog with Hallstrom in attendance and in both the introduction to the film and his post-screening Q&A he wouldn't shut the fuck up about the fact that the movie theater we were in used "the real butter" for their popcorn. he was eating popcorn pretty much the whole time. I fell asleep during the movie.

making that film was just a long con to get free popcorn with real butter.

Roma (Alfonso Cuaron, 2018) - A very impressive film. It shows us an interesting yet totally unexceptional story. It actually shows us work, how many films do that? I suppose I like the idea of giving such a cinematic treatment to the utterly ordinary maybe more than I actually like it in practice. I am struck by how little we know of Cleo's inner world and maybe that's what prevents me from connecting with it on an emotional level.

Just finished Gaspar Noe's new flick, Climax. Gotta say it was a bit underwhelming compared to his previous work. Most of his films will have a scene or two that hits you like a hammer, but the usual feeling of being uncomfortable while watching his films just wasn't there during Climax.

Independence Day: Resurgence

Every scene in this movie reminds me of the Radioactive Man episode of The Simpsons. Is the director character in this ep actually based on Roland Emmerich?

I was really only half-watching it because it was so fucking boring and embarrassing seeming.

finally watched Sorcerer. really enjoyed it, particularly the sort of mystical horror/man vs nature sense of dread. a little like a testosterone pumped Peter Weir film. but god, Friedkin must have been (be?) such a nightmare of a person. I heard him on a podcast recently complaining about how people are too mean to Trump. megalomaniacs gotta look out of each other, I guess. anyway:

Watched City on Fire (Lam, 1987) for the first time in a decade.

Image

Chow Yun-fat’s rise concurrent with the new wave of Hong Kong cinema of the 80s was p great. He’s so fucking charismatic and that kinda dance scene in the public park is rad. Lam’s frequent theme of men having to choose between law and crime, and how both ruin you but like most Hong Kong flicks of the 80s and 90s, it’s hyper cynical about the cops in particular (he’s tortured by the cops for doing his job as an undercover cop in the name of political posturing between captains). He and Woo both were invested in brotherhood between criminal and cop forged from respect and being in a dangerous life where only they can really empathize. Woo’s was always romanticized and heightened by stylistic flourishes. Lam’s is matter of fact; he’s a journeyman with very disintictive visual cues and preoccupations that hit you by how sparingly they’re used (the string light reflections on the car windshield during the final chase sequence). Hong Kong cinema of the 80s and the heroic bloodshed thing held similar disenfranchisement with law enforcement and other modern capitalist institutions in a time of growth as new Hollywood, but unlike the latter, Lam’s (and woo’s) flicks always had a friendship birthed out of men with conviction - where convinction is a trueness to the self as opposed to mindless obedience to the institution. It’s less cynical in that way. Iunno, this is great.

Lam never had the successful breakout in the States as Woo or that global run he had (and his work never had that ostentatiousness and quickly identifiable visual flair that Woo’s did, which made him a novelty to pluck and run with for a while), but he had a string of all-time flicks (the “On Fire” trilogy and Full Alert). Even his minor straight-to-video fair with JCVD is watcheable (but not good work). This movie is great.

God, this movie is so good and lean and fucking nasty. Apparently, that bridge was really unsafe and Friedkin insisted that they only fortify it to the minimal degree so as not to disturb the look.
