yeah I see what you mean - spoilers

I think Christopher Abbot - one of my favorite actors - played his role too straight so the audience doesn't have a reason to suspect anything, making Paul and his wife's paranoia extremely unrelatable, which would've been fine if it weren't like the central thesis of the story and the main driver of the entire plot. also the wife's turn in third act was good - it made sense but was surprising - but it was hampered by her need to explain their rationale for shooting the new family twice in the same scene (ie. why they felt like they had to shoot the family who just wanted to leave) - that felt very clunky for a movie that was otherwise very lean, but unfortunately that was like what the whole movie was supposed to build up to. It could've led us into Blue Ruin territory, but it wasted valuable screen time repeating scenes and hallucination rather than building that doubt or raising stakes.

Can't get over how beautiful your stuff looks. What cameras do you typically use?

Dude who directed the latest Weeknd music video has some other interesting stuff on his vimeo channel. The latter two music videos are also chock-full of great brutalist architecture

It's a chaotic season. All the time given to Mike and Gus is, I think, a total waste. It's not as solid as season 2 was. Or as any season of Breaking Bad (even when they were making it up as they went along (hello season 5 and the nazis)). Nacho is so much more interesting for this show than Mike is...I'm glad we got more of him for the last episodes but it seems a little late for the season...

Why did we have scenes with Mike doing construction work? I can't remember the context, it's as if I were sleepwatching when Mike is on...Last episode was very good, but we once again got an overlong scene with Mike. Now he's on the books. Ok. Does he care? Is he conflicted? He seems a little bothered but he's just stoic. They take for granted that Mike is cool. So they give him "cool" things to do with no story behind...

I'm talking a lot about this because it takes a lot of time, and I understand that they need to create links with Breaking Bad so they have to involve Mike and Gus more, but Nacho's story is linked to them and this is what I want...

The rest is rushed. The conflict between Jimmy/Chuck. Or how Howard suddenly can't support Chuck anymore. Or how Kim is avoiding her moral issues by working as hard as she can...I wish it felt more organic, but this season is a misshapen Lego. But the last episode was solid, and I am excited for the finale—even if I don't really know where they'll go since this season didn't have any real direction. Except a definitive breakup between Kim and Jimmy?
