    The Bond franchise is so stale at this point, I don't mind if they radically reimagine the character with Craig's successor. As long as it's an inspired take on the character that has more going for it than just minority representation.

    Finally saw this and liked it a lot. After Rebecca it's good to see Wheatley going in a better direction, even if I agree with Ein that it was a bit choppy. Reece Shearsmith fucking rules and man they really put Joel Fry's character through a gauntlet. All in all a solid tripped out violent folk horror that gives me hope for Wheatley again.

    I loved the idea of the forest creating a hallucinogenic mushroom spore fog around the camp so nobody could leave. This is the kind of Wheatley madness I'm into, tapping into A Field in England's craziness a bit here. The whole thing almost felt like a COVID-era reimagining of Close Encounters of the Third Kind.

    I have a feeling they'll appreciate Cow.

    Anyways some things I watched for the first time recently:

    fghjkl.jpg

    Chained for Life (2019) Filmed simplistically with a very "vintage" tone, it's easy to miss a lot of the subtext if you shut down and just get lost in the beautiful shots and bizarre imagery. I caught myself doing this a few times. The messaging is very transgressive but I thought it was also very delicate in its various balancing acts, touching on themes of identity, representation, ableism, artistic exploitation etc. Considering the film is populated with "circus freaks" it's actually very emotionally subtle without being too forgiving on able-bodied audiences. Also Jess Weixler has come a long way since Teeth lol.


    gsdgdg.jpg

    Following (1998) Nolan's directorial debut and a very humble one at that. Somewhat exhausting narrative structure but for the most part I was impressed. I'm a sucker for black and white cinema and 16mm is even better. I won't say much about the plot because this is one to truly be experienced going in blind, but Alex Haw who plays the main character's cat burglar mentor has amazing screen presence, pretty shocking to learn this was the only thing he ever did (as far as I can see) and he's actually an architect IRL. Bizarre!


    dfgdsfh.jpg

    Ape (2013) Hard to ignore the parallels between Ape and Scorsese's The King of Comedy. Rupert Pupkin is much more delusional whereas Trevor Newandyke is failing at comedy because he's suppressing his energy onstage. This is essentially a rage fantasy and much like The King of Comedy, when he finally drops all pretences and reveals his true self to the audience, his authenticity attracts praise. However unlike Rupert Pupkin's final act, Trevor Newandyke's ending is much more humble but also more personally satisfying.

    Apple eating scene is just...:thumbsup:

    Watched this and loved it. A feature-length follow up to the short film Music for One Apartment and Six Drummers, adding a proper story to their shenanigans. Right up my alley musically of course. I recommend not watching the trailer as it gives away too much I think.

    what happened was
    i had each video opened in a different tab
    so i ended up posting all the videos into the post without actually watching any of them
    so yeah, this was me fucking up, but just somehow wanted to explain exactly how i fucked up
    also
    i was really just trying to post trailers for the types of movies that i actually want to watch as directly opposed to everyone else talking about movies that i'm not going to watch
