    Drinningen (Queen of Hearts). Whoa, that was intense!

    “Pain & Glory” (2019): Devastatingly beautiful addition to the Almodóvar canon, and without “Parasite” around, would likely be the frontrunner for Best International Film. I hadn’t heard of the riff between Almodóvar and Banderas that fueled much of this film, but that history and build-up gave Antonio Banderas the opportunity to give the performance of his career to date. I’ll root for him hard to make the cut in Lead Actor, and of course, Almodóvar in Director. This was so personal at times, I thought that I shouldn’t be viewing this? The manipulation of memory and what fuels us to persist through suffering and joy was fascinating material to explore. Loved Asier Etxeandia as Alberto here (“Banderas surrogate”), and in a just world, he would be in the supporting actor conversation. Let’s talk about Penélope Cruz for a bit. She was as luminious as I’ve ever seen her as Jacinta, though I waver if she was in the film enough to be viable in supporting actress. She was in one of my favorite scenes of the year with the laundry sequence singalong, and I know I wanted to see more of her character around. My only issue with the film was that it was overlong, and maybe the focus could have diverted elsewhere at times. Regardless, this is a deeply felt and engaging work from Almodóvar as a late-career culmination as well as a gateway into his earlier work (see a particularly cheeky cameo role from Almodóvar mainstay Cecilia Roth for proof of that). Highly recommended viewing.

    I watched Parasite at movies yesterday. It was amazing. Perfect balance of comedy and thriller.

    I noticed Ides of March was playing. Since this was one of my favorite films that year I watched it again.
    A politically astute film with a great cast. It was bitter sweet seeing Philip Seymour Hoffman. Thanks for what you gave to art and film.
    Won’t go into much more detail except that I love the score (Desplat) and this :
    MVP Evan Rachel Wood=Melinda Dillon Absence of Malice.

    Just watched En Affære (An Affair). It has kind of a similar vibe to Drinningen (The Queen of Hearts).

    Terminator: Dark Fate

    I couldn’t resist checking this out for myself, seeing the reasons why it could be the biggest bomb ever.

    It wasn’t all bad at all. Production design was great. Visual effects good. Mackenzie Davis is great. And it was nice seeing Linda again.

    But there are some major continuity issues, and the screenplay isn’t credible. I felt as if these writers hadn’t seen the first two. It felt almost bombastic by the end.

    I was hoping this could reboot the franchise, instead of a steady decline. I think they’re going to have to wait 10-20 years before they try again.

    Not the most horrible film I thought I might see. But at best average.
    Disappointing.

    Peanut Butter Falcon was pretty good. Nothing too out of the ordinary. A fun little buddy comedy. Solid performances by Dakota Johnson and Zack Gottasgen. May try and sneak the latter on my ballot out of sentimentality.

    The Irishman – not quite S-tier Scorcese, but powerful and tragic in a way few films are.

    Jojo Rabbit – Rewatched it. Still not fond of it, but it’s more palatable to me when I go in not expecting any real satirical insight.

    Birdman – Rewatched it. This holds up as one of the most worthy Best Picture winners this decade. Even ignoring the one-shot presentation, this is a really funny and clever movie.

    Pain and Glory is a slow-burning, intimate masterpiece. I love Almodovar, but I’ve never been as moved by his film as much as this one. And forget about Phoenix and Driver…the Best Actor performance we should be talking about is Banderas. I didn’t know he had this in him. Every movement, every grimace, every word resonated with pain and vulnerability.
