Inland Empire is hugely underrated, Dern is incredible in it.Watched the Canyons, the movie with Lindsay Lohan and James Deen. Total car crash. She looks like she’s about to keel over and die any moment in the film and Deen is an insufferable prick. Yet there was something enjoyable about its musings on grotesque Hollywood and some funny throwback to American Psycho.
Rewatched Inland Empire which is... a fucking masterpiece. I really enjoyed appreciating all the crazy weird effects Lynch uses and Laura Dern is sensational. She’s seriously one of the best actors of her generation and highly underrated. The scene when she’s talking to the strange detective type in that polish high rise are Oscar worthy. Favourite line “she lets on more than she understand...” “but I don’t speak it.”
Agree with this.Went to once upon a time in hollywood yesterday.
I liked it a lot. we left the cinema and we were still digesting the weirdness of it all about two hours later. Kinda want to re-watch pretty soon tbh - brad pitt drives the show along and in normal tarrantino fare, its kind of unclear if there are any good guys at all. the depiction of the manson family is kinda comedic, the comedic bits are very funny, some lols and some slow burners. want to re-watch because decaprio is sortof playing a character, that character acting awfully and that actor acting really well at different times but because brad took the lead on the first watch i didn't pay as much attention to him or robbie. the trailers to my mind were a bit of bait and switch, i'm nearly sure one scene from the trailers isn't even in the movie. great justaposition of reality (which in fairness is a fake reality anyways and fiction and rewriting of movie folklore - i kinda think hollywood has had its day and the europeans and asians are moving film along now but this is the first hollywood movie i've seen that is aware of that. So much driving, so much feet.
As always, the books are betterConfessions of a window cleaner. The confessions films had a bit of a mythic reputation in the pre internet days of the late 80s. I never actually seen one until today. The whole thing is on YouTube. Pretty bad, as expected. Basically a carry on film with more nudity. I like the British 70s feel & there's loads of hot 1970s women.... But apart from that, tiresome.
