The Driller Killer - my first Abel Ferrara movie! It was OK! I guess i liked it more as a snapshot of 70s NYC! Crazy kids. Going to be watching more of his films in the coming days/weeks tho. Don't rly know what to expect x

Excited to hear what you think of his other films. I’m a big Abel Ferrara fan but I wouldn’t rank The Driller Killer particularly high on my list. Ms. 45 is my favorite. The Addiction is really good too.

extremely my shit. this animated noir film looks like a mashup of Twinsen's Odyssey and blade runner. im obsessed with this kid's punk-artschool style


I saw this at the London Animation Festival last year and also loved it. Hadn't noticed the Little Big Adventure vibe but that was probably a big part of it for me unconsciously

ms 45 is such an amazing and economical film. if you're working through his films chronologically you're in for a treat. also, yeah, svankmajer's alice had a big impact on my continued love of animation as a format when i first watched it on netflix in 2010. i miss netflix in 2010.

pirates of silicon valley is an objectively dumb and soap opera-y film but honestly i'll take any film that depicts steve jobs and bill gates as asshole horny nerds that got lucky instead of Tech Geniuses. gotta say i enjoyed it more this go around than i expected to.



steve jobs is sortof played like randal from clerks in this film and i dunno. i watched this film the very first time it aired. i wouldve been like 8. gotta say i feel blessed that's been the lasting impression of steve jobs i've had in my head throughout my life.

fave march first time watches:

the shop around the corner (lubitsch 1940) - wow, instant fave
personal shopper (assayas 2016) - my only complaint was there were moments i felt like i was just looking at a phone screen and not watching a film. they passed though
the florida project (baker 2017)
dawson city: frozen time (carpenter 2016) - such a cool story. there were so many fires in the old days
black orpheus (camus 1959) - this was fun and felt and looked more contemporary than it is. i had little familiarity with the myth beforehand
one sings, the other doesn't (varda 1977)
white material (denis 2009)
auto focus (schrader 2002)
good time (safdie & safdie 2017) - honestly a little underwhelmed. much prefer uncut gems
the wicker man (hardy 1973)

fave march rewatches:

2001 a space odyssey (kubrick 1968) - saw it for a second time in 70mm before the world went to shit. i will continue seeing it every time my local theater plays it
hoop dreams (james 1994) - still the best doc i've ever seen
the royal tenebaums (anderson 2001)
office space (judge 1999)
children of men (cuaron 2006)

worst:

three billboards outside ebbing missouri (mcdonagh 2017) - what on earth. this was horrid. and i liked in bruges!

first time watches in march (didn't watch many movies)

losing ground (collins 1982)
day for night (truffaut 1973)
the hidden fortress (kurosawa 1958)
princess yang kwei fei (mizoguchi 1955)
a brighter summer day (yang 1991)

i thought all of these were pretty great, brighter summer day was a pretty transcendent experience. one of the best movies i've seen in a long time/ever

i also watched road to roma (clariond & nuncio 2020) which was pretty chill although a bit ridiculous. it is funny to watch directors work because they are strange creatures.

All the movies I watched in March, ranked:

The Peanut Butter Falcon - it's a cutesy 2000's indy movie a decade late, but it's still great. I dug its heartfelt, hopeful tone, its Huck Finn poor Southern odyssey narrative (and mood), and the contrasting performances from LaBeouf and Gottsagen. I also loved the few joint interviews of them that I read.

Arrietty - loses a bit of the early magic as it goes on, particularly with a forced antagonist. Still good though

Knives Out - pretty fun take on the whodunnit genre

The Platform - no-holds-barred sci-fi allegory. Pretty good

True Romance - Starts strong with the Badlands-esque off-kilter fairytale romance, but it fades as it goes. Maybe Tarantino's stylistic verve would have helped the climactic scene.

Blackhat - Everything in it struck me as ridiculous in a bad way. I just realized I forgot to respond to the poster who helpfully linked a piece on this in the best-of-the-decade thread. Should probably do so.

the twentieth century, matthew rankin, 2019

this was so great. I was both biased for and against this movie because I know Dan Beirne and Brent Skagford and they're the funniest guys ever and the idea of making a frightening and comedic acid film about Canada's 10th prime minister, William Mackenzie King is hilarious, but was worried from the trailer that the whole aesthetic would be way too Montreal indie twee, but it's really just lovingly done insane Powell & Pressburger / Fritz Lang intersecting with Kids in the Hall, Possession, 1984 (the film), b-horror and exploitation, Gilliam and studio comedies. it's one of the few things i've seen in the last 10 years that can actually be called a 'midnight movie', the tone is perfect and original and it doesn't feel like a pastiche or homage to any one thing except maybe Guy Maddin, which is hard to knock it for as Rankin is from Winnipeg. it's truly Canadian to its core which makes it insane in the way the best insane Canadian films are (Cronenberg, Maddin, Bruce McDonald)

brooklyn's spectacle theater & factory 25 are joining together to stream empty metal today at 730pm EST

I saw it last year, thought it was excellent. walt, you did too, right?


Set in the abusive police state of the contemporary United States, EMPTY METAL follows five groups of characters, each emblematic of a different extreme political ideology, as they attempt insurrection against the status quo: a queer noise band is coerced into a dangerous assassination plot by a family of militant Native Americans who are aided by a Rastafarian computer hacker who is old friends with a Buddhist hermit whose son is a local militia leader. This tangled web of marginalized voices is as diverse and contradictory as the nation that spun it, but there is a common thread: all the characters teeter on the dull knife blade that is contemporary American politics, but they refuse to fall right or left. Instead, they lash out from the soul, and under the radar, in an attempt to achieve what their mainstream predecessors have yet to accomplish.

And all the while, the drones are watching...

catching up on what I watch recently

Image
The Elegant Life of Mr. Everyman (Okamoto, 1963)

Did not like this one! It's a satirical take on the life of the salaryman or whatever but it just never connected for me and it felt too much like A CHRISTMAS STORY which I hate.

Image
The Killer (Woo, 1989)

I've never actually seen John Woo's HK films. The last third of this is truly unhinged and incredibly violent lol.

in quarantine viewing with a 5-year old, we watched the classics NATIONAL TREASURE and NATIONAL TREASURE 2. the second movie Cage really gets to let loose. then we watched both of the GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY movies and they held up pretty well. the second one is really funny actually.

we watched THE HOUSE WITH A CLOCK IN ITS WALL and they let Eli Roth make a family movie? it was ok. Jack Black gets to play Jack Black if he was a warlock that plays saxophone

Image

and also TOY STORY 4. I really dislike the TOY STORY movies and this was not an exception.

I rewatched SUICIDE CLUB because I was going to watch NORIKO'S DINNER TABLE next for Sion Sono and since it's related by being a prequel or sequel or tangent or whatever and it's been probably like 15 years since I watched Suicide Club

Image

I forgot most of what happened except for the one thing that really stuck with me all this time which is when the girl is kidnapped and taken to the torture murder den and then the cult leader man breaks out into a glam rock songToggle Spoiler. it's a good and kind of normal J-horror movie up to about that point, it kind of follows from the technology changing society horror vein of RINGU and KAIRO and with a dose of BATTLE ROYALE. but then he veers it off in his own direction at the end and I enjoyed watching it again.
