ARP is the Ben Shapiro of cinema.

Adorable.
If I could move the night I would
And I would turn the world around if I could
There's nothing wrong with loving something you can't hold in your hand
You're sitting on the edge of the bed, smoking and shaking your head
Well there's nothing wrong with loving things that cannot even stand
Well there goes your moony man
With his suitcase in his hand
Every road is lined with animals
That rise from their blood and walk
Well the moon won't get a wink of sleep
If I stay all night and talk

it’s meant to be more adorable than harsh, while still he does have a similar dismissive attitude that lacks self-awareness, and in terms of global cinema how the fuck did he only think of white people shit

The 25 Best Films Of 2019 You Didn’t See
The Playlist

1. “Long Day’s Journey Into Night”
Drift off to a land where your memories can cast a spell on themselves. Bi Gan’s sophomore feature is a cinematic mic drop from an aesthetic magician that blurs the lines between the art of film, the act of dreaming, and how such imaginings inform the stories we tell ourselves as we walk down our singular path. A Haruki Murakami-like feverish trance of swirling melancholy, cavernous wonderlands, and eternal longing, “Long Day’s Journey Into Night” follows a man who long ago fell into a world of crime, now chasing after the memory of a woman (Tang Wei) he once loved, who disappeared from his life, like so many others before her. Through reflective narration, weary detective work and symbolic visuals, fragments of the history of their fractured relationship are interspersed with our lonely lead’s fruitless search for his lost love. The, now famous, final shot of the film is an almost hour-long, unbroken 3-D take that transports the viewer across chasms of his unconscious, the camera gliding above broken allegories of an undead past and into a traumatic valley of deep-seated memories. “Long Day’s Journey Into Night” uses the pure expressive power of cinema — light, color, shadow, and music — to examine the maze of myths and desires we create out of what we alone see when the lights go dark. Say the spell. Spin the house.

I swear I knew I would get a response like that when devising the list, but any other order or titles would be untruthful, it is super white and male, I know. but thos remaining 13 somewhat redeem the list.
