    Just saw Mandy this afternoon; it was CRAZY. Was fun seeing it in the theater with other people gasping/laughing/screaming - I wish it had gotten a wider release since I know a lot of folks don't have it playing anywhere near them.

    I just saw "Hereditary" last week and I cannot stop thinking about it and talking about it. Apart from the psychological creepiness and disturbing imagery, the acting is AMAZING, Toni Collette is in peak form (if you are a fan but were afraid to watch because of the horror stuff i understand, I'm like that as well, but it's worth it. My advice to you would be to watch it covering your eyes like I did , but watch it nonetheless ). And omg the last ten minutes is nothing short of terrifying and stunning and brilliant. One of the best films I've seen in years, and in terms of Horror Films, belongs up there next to The Exorcist and Rosemary's Baby.

    If anybody has Amazon Prime streaming, my favorite thing I saw all year is finally online with English subtitles (it's on YouTube with French subtitles too). It's a Swedish stop-motion short that played at Sundance called Min Borda (The Burden).

    The Man who killed Don Quijote by Terry Gilliam - finally :-)

    I enjoyed it, it feels a bit overlong, but it is full of quirky twists and Gilliam-humor.
    It shifts between reality, fantasies, dreams and some sort of time-travels and that was very entertaining.
    Definitly going to watch it a second time when the DVD is out, because:
    a) to watch the english version, the german dub seemed not so convincing yesterday
    b) to see the documentary on the making, done by the same team that made "Lost in la Mancha", the doku about the many failings in making it before

    The Ornithologist a mixture of A Midsummer Night's Dream, The Blair Witch Project, and Stranger by The Lake. Completely wild and definitely something entertaining. On Netflix
    Mother! (spoilery) I was pretty tense at the beginning of the film. Obviously at the end everything goes insane but it was actually the quietness and knowing something was really out of the ordinary that the first third of the movie had going on that was terrifying for me. But I liked it weirdly enough.. understanding it was an allegory about Genesis. It was kind of neat to try and figure out which moment inside "the house" was representing what part of The Book of Genesis. On Amazon Prime

    I have some very minor complaints, which honestly could probably have been helped if it had just been a tiny bit longer, but hard to say much without going into spoiler territory (can you spoil a 4x remake?). But overall the first third was flawless and I really enjoyed the whole thing. Bradley and Gaga were amazing and the supporting cast was top notch (not one but two mini-Alias reunions!).



    Oh, one other cameo spoiler that I didn't know about going in:

    First Man - I'd give it a B+
    It's so close to epic.. but on every point, for me, that makes a film epic is just misses, it just underwhelms. And for a film about the first lunar landing.. you have this expectation of grandeur and joy. And that's not what this film is. Actually, I'm not really even sure what this film is. Is it a drama? If so it's closer to documentary or demonstration than drama. Ryan plays it so deadpan that you almost don't know he's there. And Claire Foy plays it so lackluster-ly, so down the middle.. her performance adds very little, as well. At one point she is so eager for information, so vicious with heads at NASA, the film-goer is left kind of in shock. Like .. where did that come from? Maybe they shot that scene early in production when Claire thought her character Janet actually was interested in her husband Neil.

    Both will be nominated for Oscars, surely. Because even though the film is borderline boring or unimportant it was clearly made to land at the Academy Awards.
    Comparing this to A Star is Born.. which had sooooo much WOW factor. You just can't compare it. Cooper and Gaga are so completely into their film. It's almost the opposite with First Man's leads. So much so, you think it must be intentional, and what a bad intention.

    I also had high expectations for Chazelle. I loved La La Land. I think it should have won Best Picture. But this film has none of that going for it.
    And I think back to a film like Hidden Figures. That movie, dealing with the space program, had so much joy and so much going on visually and you knew what the stakes were.. i'm sure with half of First Man's budget.
