    I don't usually do this sort of thing, but I thought this would be a good place to plug my new blog I've been working on. I'm looking to review a wide variety of things, so feel free to make some suggestions. I know there's not too much as yet, but I have a few new ones in the pipeline, so I can post updates here if anyone's interested.

    Has anyone seen the new OJ documentary? Really worth the watch. Kinda terrifying too.

    Masterminds came out yesterday. That seems like a pretty interesting movie, and it was based on a true story. Probably gonna see it today or tomorrow.

    a new trailer for the 5th pirates of the Caribbean movie came out yesterday.

    kind of torn about this because I liked the Pirates films back when it was just a trilogy, but then On Stranger Tides came out, and I still haven't even seen that. this one looks pretty good though so I may check it out

    On Strangers Tides was a piece of shit, but they seem to be going back to the lore and feel/tone of the the first three. Which is a good thing.

    i never really had any interest in OST, but I'll probably see it before the 5th. for the longest time I thought a new one was just a rumor, but now that the trailer's out, I'm actually optimistic about it

    RIP Pierre Étaix. Everyone needs to check out Yoyo and Le Grand amour asap, especially if you're into Tati, Chaplin, etc. Criterion has put out great restoration of his works.

    Started watching Rear Window last night. Got through the first hour, will watch the rest later.
    The plot takes a while to get going, but it looks like it'll be interesting.
    There was some pretty good humor throughout the movie, which i didn't expect considering it was Hitchcock
    The direction was great, really captured the atmosphere of New York very well.
    Can't give a rating yet because I didn't finish.
    You're a dolt with the IQ of a peabrain that probably loves lowbrow sitcoms like The Big Bang Theory, Frasier and Seinfeld to not grasp the biting satire and wit of the classic 65 (Rugrats).

    went to the chicago international film festival yesterday and had a great time.

    first was ARE WE NOT CATS, which was super weird and unsettling and depressing but also a little sweet. it looks great most of the time and it's impossible to not have a visceral reaction to it. the ending was way too sudden though. the director and actor did a q&a afterwards.

    then saw the 50 year anniversary restoration of A MAN AND A WOMAN. great film, so visually poetic and inventive and the two leads are phenomenal. claude lelouch did a q&a and unironically said something about how you always feel drawn to kissing beautiful woman and of course the crowd laughed and the translator had to explain that that was in the news lately.

    then we saw FINALS, which was really good. co-written by kiarostami and is definitely somewhere between him and farhadi. the characters are so authentic and the tension builds so subtly that you almost don't realize it's there until it's released in the final moment. you can definitely see kiarostami's fingerprints all over it (a lot of car conversations, long takes, the way the camera lingers on its characters), but it's maybe less humanistic and less driven by any philosophical musings. this was the world premiere and in the q&a the director said he was sad that kiarostami never got to see the film on the big screen.

    then we caught the after dark screening of THE EYES OF MY MOTHER, which was a little disappointing but still good. visually it's as amazing as you'd expect and it's certainly disturbing, but i guess i never really bought in to the atmosphere because i never really felt that constant sense of dread that i felt when watching the babadook or whatever. there's a lot of depravity going on but i guess i didn't really see a point to it? it's still pretty impressive overall i suppose and i would recommend it because it's certainly interesting, but eh. one of the producers did a q&a but we had to skip it to catch our train.

    we had a free slot after finals because the film we wanted to see was sold out, so we hopped into a non-festival screening of DEEPWATER HORIZON and it was fine. the first half was bafflingly dull because they just keep throwing all this oil jargon at you and it's literally impossible to give a shit, but once the explosion happens it gets reasonably excited.

    For the record, the majority of Hitchcock's work has its humorous elements.

    saw "five little pieces" (1970) last night. not the most memorable movie, and just what the point of it all was escaped me. maybe i zoned out at the important moments and didn't notice.

    shame every character in it bored/irritated me apart from bobby.

    I'm not particularly good at fully comprehending or describing why certain films leave an impact on me.
    many times it's purely because it's just gorgeous looking. color/b&w doesn't matter
    sometimes they're charming. or thoughtful. or well crafted.
    maybe the subject matter opens my eye to experiences other have that I would hate to experience
    some I didn't even like that much, but think they deserve to be seen once
    these are all (minus 1 or 2) from the 50's thru 70's which has been the period i've been digging into most this past year
    I'll try to contemporize a bit next year. that'll be my new years resolution
    I would recommend all these movies i've seen for the first time in the last year

    The Young Girls of Rochefort

    High and Low

    Persona

    Day For Night

    Over the Edge
