Diamantino - Eh... I was expecting something a little broader. The use of 16MM annoyed me here given the number of sfx shots.

Transit - Decent but didn't need the narration.

Art of Self Defense - Really really good. Love Jesse Eisenberg and he kills it in this. Great film about toxic and exuberant masculinity.

Stuber - Fun time, even though it feels like an ad for the most part.

Mister America - Did not like this at all outside of the Gregg Turkington scenes.

Thunder Road - Was super surprised by this... even though it's about a cop and I don't really like films about cops, it was super touching. The lead actor / director did some weird acting things that took me out of the film but I thought this was touching all throughout.

I don't have much interest in the romantic genre stuff pre-la chinoise, so I'll prolly just watch la chinoise and maybe some of the agitprop Maoist, non-narrativd stuff he does after weekend? I know it's ignorance on my part that fuels my disinterest but I've never had an interest in French New wave dudes. It's always been Melville and Clouzot for me. They had a more nasty, oppressive take on genre than what I perceive as the cerebral, post structural experiments with genre with godard, truffaut and rohmer (says a guy who has seen exactly 1 movie from godard, 1 from truffaut, and had of a rohmer flick).

i think weekend and hail mary are my favorites i've seen from him. the bits of histoires du cinema i've seen are amazing. i really want to dig further into his 80s filmography further.

the abrasiveness is why i like week end a lot more than most of his 60s work which for the most part i respect for innovation but don't get much feeling from.

i think each of his eras i'm familiar with are hit and miss but the hits hit incredibly hard. like i like the image book less and less the more i think about it but i'll still watch whatever he puts out until his passing.

Rohmer was a classicist fwiw, I don't think he had much to do with the rest of the New Wave other than socially. His preoccupations are definitely not yours (Todd's) though.

weekend stuck to me. it feels like an endurance test in some parts. the long, circular tracking shot of the dude playing mozart, while the two protagonists look bored as everyone else is watching with quiet reverence. the ten minute traffic jam has a lot a sight gags but also gets tedious in its resemblance of an assembly line.

i'm sure i didn't take some genius pills and it's been discussed ad naseum, but i thought it was p dope that engels' stages of culture that end in the creation of the state and private property (which are recited in voiceover in the movie) are borne out by the rich couple in reverse order. they start in civilization, move to barbarism when they meet historical artists and figures and are like, "fuck you just get me to this city so we can fuck over our widowed mother for inheritance," then the wife goes savage with the isolationist revolutionaries who literally eat the rich.

the scene in the beginning where the wife gives the bibi andersson monologue about the orgy, but with a flat affect was funny. the reel splitting into the car wreck and a body just rolling out of the wreckage while the wife cries out for her rich person bag was all-time.

the way all death and pain is played primarily for humor, but then at the end they stab a pig in the neck and it becomes the first and only act of violence that resonates and spurs an emotional reaction. the mic drop of an ending with the title card reading end of cinema. damn.

i'm on baby's french new wave vibes.
