I saw Uncut Gems instead, and my question is, how does anyone survive in New York?

MOVIE REVIEW: the new Jarmusch zombie comedy: good as hell but I get why it got bad reviews

I found it really direct in its attitude and humour in a way which is sometimes uncomfortable but entirely relatable, and also it feels like he's just throwing his hands up in the air, which is also relatable as a statement but not actually a statement. The mood is definitely different.

so is this the worst year for holiday releases ever or are we all enjoying, I dunno, little women

We are enjoying little women

I think I was aware the cast included Bob Odenkirk but frankly was still not prepared for it

Bob Odenkirk showing up out of nowhere an hour into the film and saying the title of the movie was maybe the best thing I saw in a theater this year.

TOMORROW

 

Also the terrible Gilliam film is available on my streaming sub so watching that soon as well.

UPDATE: Very Gilliam, not crap.

Finally watched Blue Velvet. Didn’t really care for it though I do think Lynch's ability to successfully translate dream logic to the screen is very impressive and mostly unparalleled.

I am sorry to report that "Two Horses of Genghis Khan", while featuring many horses (in fact, more than the advertised two), does not feature Genghis Khan, or evidence that any of the horses are Genghis Khan's horses. It does feature:

- 100 y o weatherbeaten Mongolian woman singing the title song

- bus

- milk from some ruminant

- violin-making montages

- telephone pole climbing shoes

this title does correctly identify genghis khan as having ≥ 2 horses, which as a reminder is indeed consistent with genghis khan being ≥ george washington, who had 2 horses per this accurate japanese illustration

which of you failed to tell me that after washing his balls in the briny sea mist, robert eggers was inspired to go full norseman

 

jesus christ this cast not only has the return of willem dafoe, but also ethan hawke and nicole kidman, and bjork as a witch promising to derail the entire enterprise

also skarsgard the younger, for my money I'd rather have skarsgard the elder, but this is going to be banging nonetheless

rally the ulfsarks, we're going to celebrate when the trailer comes out

god damn financiers

Quote

According to Pattinson the phallic imagery of the lighthouse is explicit, as Eggers described it as an erect penis in the script. The film was meant to include “a very juvenile shot of a lighthouse moving like an erect penis and a match-cut to [Pattinson's] actual erect penis”, although this cut was removed upon request by financiers
