The important thing is, I'm meeting new people

Basically a nerd, basically a film blog.

INTJ

Catharsis is my favorite feeling.

The week in weird movies with captainsunbeam

Blue Ruin (Netflix) - I liked this one quite a lot! An indie film about vengeance, just the right size, with a hangdog main character played by the perfect hangdog actor. I loved the weird, dark humor. Great faces in the casting. Intersection of poverty and family, loneliness and grief.

The Congress (theatre, also available on VOD - Drafthouse Films) - I’m glad I saw this, if only to support unique visions. Was not entirely successful though, and I got lost trying to think about what it was trying to say and then realized I didn’t really care/ didn’t think there was really anything to find there. Like one of those things that thinks it’s trying to say something, but really isn’t in the end. It had all the pieces there, set up to work with some really interesting questions about women in Hollywood and women’s choices, but then it kinda didn’t do enough there. Visually interesting (although I was really bothered by the focus issues in shots with short focal length; whether intentional or not, it drove me a little crazy).

Berberian Sound Studio (Netflix) - I love process movies, and this was a process movie about the sound for what was basically a Giallo film. God I love foley! Creepy, great atmosphere, but I also fell asleep (more due to the 7- month old than the movie). I have no idea what happened but I kinda liked it.

I spent a week at Julie’s house and we did nothing but watch weird movies and eat various nationalities of meat! It was great! Meet your internet friends!

Haha various nationalities of meat SO TRU

Yes everyone meet your internet friends dreams do come true

That sounded sarcastic but it was not I swear

Looking forward to many more movies, weird and otherwise, with @captainsunbeam

Berberian Sound Studio FTW! If you ever have a film piece you wanna get out there in the world, just let me know. We are re-launching www.thiscinematiclife.com on Monday and we are always open to guest posts for Wednesdays

Thanks! Writing something more extensive will probably require me to stay awake consistently through movies… Probly another few months ☺️

"precipitates" series by pablo genovés

When the apocalypse comes, if it does, it will look really impressive in places of fine art and classical performance. So surmises the collage work of Madrid/Berlin-based artist Pablo Genovés, who takes photos of museums, performance halls, and ballrooms, and creates scenes of flooding and tsunami-like moments in the otherwise serence environments.

But the more I made new friends, the clearer it was to me that no one is ever really done making new friends, and very few people are averse to it. I used to assume that people ALREADY HAD THEIR FRIENDS, but that’s almost never the case. Even when people seem to be busy and social, they’re often very open to getting to know someone new.

The first AP over at NYMag’s The Cut, and she absolutely knocked it out.
