Encounters At The End Of The World (2007)

Rewatched with friends.

Hard Boiled

So good!

The Net (1995)

Meh. Very 90s.


Fun, aesthetic, but didn’t feel like there was much there there. Sort of reminded me of Buckaroo Banzai.

Pain and Glory (Almadovar)

This was great! Hard to put a finger on why exactly I liked it so much though. Obviously much less tranditionally masculine than 8 1/2.


This has been on my list since J screened “Green Fog” for me at the archive, for the San Francisco setting. McQueen is swaggery, though I expected even more aggression from the reputation the film has. The chase scene is wild and great. The cafe and SF culture establishing shots were unexpected.

To be honest had to check some of the plot points online after… screen we watched on didn’t have good audio.

I watched “Towering Inferno” before this, partially for the same “Green Fog” motivation, and partially because it features the Embarcadero Hyatt atrium. Also features McQueen and a couple other scenes were similar (everybody in Pacific Heights is rich and horrible), but Bullitt is much better.

Those blue McQueen eyes!

American Factory

Some memorible bits, but in the end felt sort of aimless.

Pain and Glory


How to Get Ahead in Advertising

I didn’t like this as much as I expected I would? Manic, ranty, nice Cronberg-y bits.

The Lighthouse

Weird, intense. Good? Acting was great. Dialog was hard to understand at times.


This was good. A juicy, buzzy story.
