I'm watching Popeye, which i probably havent watched in 20 years. Its crazy how much i can tell this movie in particular shaped my life. I still know every song, every step, i almost know it verbatim. I must have watched it every day, most days multiple times, for months, if not years

He was trying to do to much with the movie, was in over his head I feel like


Commenting on the absurdity of the last few years and our society in general, cults of personality, fear of death, and strained familial relationships

That supermarket dance to end out the movie was so sloppy lol. Choreography was trash, just why :rofl:

Nah not yet. Tell me more.
a movie about reflection, about the fleeting, ephemeral moments that end up being more significant than they seemed at the time


very assured direction from apparently a first timer, incorporating home video footage to paint a picture of a strained father/daughter relationship that ultimately held power and beauty


quite lovely and melancholic. can't spoil anything about the best scene in the movie but it's one of the greatest of the year

Extremely pleased with Copenhagen Cowboy. Probably should have saved some for the weekend but I couldn't help myself. When a Refn drops I mainline it. Like usual I doubt he'll gain many new followers with this. Fans of his work already will likely be pleased though. Another slow burn asking for deliberate patience that rewards delicious reveals in narrative and tone. It does move like lightning compared to Neon Demon, Only God Forgives or Too Old to Die Young however. Pacing finally hitting a sweet spot that marries brisk momentum and his love for excessive breathing.
