this is my favorite song of all time. tonight it's making me feel again.



'Drank so much tea I wrote my letters in kanji'

Wow, thanks for this! Their name and style reminded me of a more recent Australian alt-rock band. They have, maybe, taken on The Red Painter's torch. As pseudo-spiritual successors they're less slowcore, more orchestral-goth, but maybe you'd dig 'em:

Yes, but it is being spoiled to still be picky when a movie is worth discussion? I did think about it. It's true that most movies on this scale aren't even trying. That said, even if I, personally, think the movie is messy, the mere fact that I am writing a lot about it here is a sign that they have done something.

Yes, totally. Didn't mean to call you out. Was speaking generally to similar sentiments I've seen here and there. Love that the movie is generating discussion. Love when ANY movie generates discussion. Just sense a slight forest-for-the-trees perspective lately. I feel like any conversation between movie people on this one should begin from the premise that it's something special. You may like it, you may hate it, but I think we can (mostly) all agree that it's a cut above.

like with mother! i can't dislike it without betraying some of my core principles, so i won't dislike it. absolutely the feeling of this movie will resonate with me, and that is indeed a quality i cherish. plus yeah it's got all the candies of cinema and Deakins should win all the awards. on top of that it's set in the future and they saved the snow scene for last.

one can keep in mind that i like Blade Runner and still i've watched that movie without liking it. because the thing is my life isn't sitting inside there. the people i know aren't sitting inside that movie. so for me the feeling is a place and not a person. and some days i'd rather visit a park than see my friend, but parks are everywhere and friends are rare. if The Florida Project was multiplex i'd've seen it instead and it'll have problems sure, but they'll be human problems. that's my jam and y'all know it.

I think any and all continuity is out the window at this point. I mean... they literally showed us the flesh being burned from CSM's bones so that only his charred skeleton remained (below), which was then apparently fixed with partial cosmetic surgery.

If they're retconning things again, that's a big ask. It's really hard to take the mythology seriously. But the new stuff does look pretty good.

LOVED IT.

Pretty much agree with what Alexandro said, although the length was fine for me.


Give all the awards already to Deakins.

The retcon is out there.

New trailer for S11 here:



There's a good breakdown of the above over on XFN. Reading between the lines, I'm nervous about the sense that maybe Carter's way out of the corner he painted himself into twas that it was all a dream. And as awful as that sounds, I can't help shake the feeling that maybe that isn't the very worst way they could take things. Ho-hum.

Also over on XFN, this recap of the NYCC panel.

I feel like this movie raises an interesting question about the extent to which context matters when it comes to the quality of a film. To me, it's a MIRACLE given the modern studio system (if this does well and the general public demonstrates a taste for it, some real interesting films could get made), but agree that it's not perfect. Most movies of this scale don't even seem to try to try for perfect. And you never know what might have been studio mandated. The runtime almost definitely given that most people won't leave the house for anything less than two hours.

The same thing seems to be happening with The Florida Project, with people online getting pretty nit-picky. These are good films! Real deal adventurous, interesting films!
