    I watched Utu @CiG. Pretty decent, better than expected. The original near-2 hour NZ version but plenty of action and some funny bits too so doesn't feel too long at all.

    obviously it's the kind of movie that's soul-destroying if you aren't on its wavelength, but eh i'm always gonna love something that can be described as tim & eric doing inland empire by way of adam curtis, especially with the disturbing, hilarious way it rummages through all that '90s pop culture detritus (the more references i get the funnier it becomes). it's like a damaged memory dredged up from the bowels of the collective consciousness, nothing else like it for good or ill. i would still recommend it to obv max and CiG but probably not the other regs in here (maybe rms, who knows with that weirdo)

    prescient prediction btw:

    I watched the Friedkin scene after you brought it up before and got a kick out of that, whoever they got to play Friedkin was eerily accurate. But I have this sneaking suspicion that if I tried watching the whole movie I'd get annoyed very fast.

    Also unrelated to that movie but Packard has some truly retarded opinions like Lair of the White Worm and Whore aren't "real" Ken Russell movies. What the fuck kind of shit ass opinion on Ken Russell is that?

    Weirdly a Seidl made-for-TV doc about Filipino mail order brides came across my radar last week.

    I checked it out after Baker praised it in an interview I watched, he also praised the trilogy Paradise: Love is from so maybe it won't be for you. I dunno, I thought it was great myself.

    actually it was paradise: hope i saw, not love lol. obviously a talented filmmaker, i'm just not into detached modes of filmmaking as a general rule. the more expressionist the better.

    baker likes literally every movie in the entire world in fairness, i know because i follow his letterboxd. he's also never said a single interesting thing about any of them. i still like his movies though :p

    Yeah he didn't say anything interesting about Import/Export either, to be fair lmao. He was just rattling off movies that were influential to him, I recognized the name because my streaming service has it and it's Eastern European which I'm a sucker for. Seriously check it out if you can, I wouldn't describe it as detached for what it's worth.

    Hopefully I can find time today to watch Ciro Guerra's Birds of Passage. Judging from Embrace of the Serpent at the very least this film should be nice to look at.

    Some real out of nowhere what the fuck news that will probably interest nobody, tomorrow at 7 PM EST the excellent cinephobe.tv is going to stream a timecoded VHS of this musical version of this James L. Brooks comedy:



    What a concept. A musical/comedy starring Nick Nolte with songs by Prince.
