Giants And Toys might fit that description, along with Jigoku, and also Hero by Zhang Yimou.

Thanks! I’m really considering buying a teal harrington like shooting star wears in this. And I love Hero, the different color sections are so good

Just watched Alita. It was better than Avatar but not great. Seemed like an unusually decent YA adaptation even tho I know it's based on the manga. Also I just got bored through most of the CGI action scenes and SPINNNNINGGG SLOOOWWW MOOOO shots. I really dislike the Ready Player One style CGI shit with the nutty camera movements. Too video game-y. I really liked Salazar's performance as Alita though. Impressive considering she's only like partially in the movie, physically anyway.

our time (2018) dir. carlos reygadas

reygadas treats the viewer to a 3 hr epic about the facade of liberality as an open marriage's viability is challenged by the husband's jealousy

gorgeous film, more structure than post tenebras lux which I appreciated. that film was beautiful to look at but a bit meandering

I found the first hour of this film to be perfect, and enjoyed bits and pieces from that point, but it didn't quite totally coalesce for me. I tend to feel this way about reygadas. other than silent light I tend to find the parts are greater than the sum, though he's a very emotional filmmaker and I think you need to accept the messiness allows him to capture uniquely beautiful and human imagery

this film is a little too long, and even though frustrating the viewer as character continues to make the same mistakes over and over again is the point, it overstayed its welcome for me

could have also done without the final metaphor. a little too on the nose

even still, not many filmmakers are even attempting work so ambitious. that alone should be applauded. a must-watch imo

empty metal - 2018 - adam khalil and bayley sweitzer

a group of indigenous activists (who also happen to be telepaths) possess the minds of a noise-rock group, and get them to carry out assassinations against minority-killing cops and right wing politicians. the film blends 3d animation, documentary, and fiction. reminded me a lot of hito steyerl. extremely weird and worth seeing.

did you go see the new film they made with anton vidokle?

i wanted to like empty metal more than i did, but it has really stuck with me since i watched it last year. jackson polys, adam and zach khalil's short "violence of a civilization without secrets" is a fantastic miniature essay film

Loved this film! The final scene may have been a little on the nose but I really liked it - I thought it rounded off the film really nicely.

Opening scene with the kids and teenagers and the shot of the aircraft landing with the wife’s monologue were amazing
