It's got wonky structure given the source material but it's definitely a cool movie.

Is it bad that I've never actually read the source material, so the movie is my only frame of reference?

Yes yes it is bad. But what I meant is that the source material is a 12 issue comic series and the movie, with some exceptions, is a pretty faithful retelling so it has the pacing problems you might expect.

I appreciated the film a lot more after reading the comics in graphic novel form surprisingly

it's got some key differences but it's pretty faithful in feel which was a bit of a mess by itself but ends up being awesome when you just want to see the characters on the screen

I think the movie is very good, but there are several things in the comic that I really miss. I also understand why you can't bring in everything. Of course a movie adaptation isn't gonna have a narrator read aloud all of those texts that the comic shoves in between chapters.

I know it was separate issues, but when you've got the book with everything in one, they're functionally chapters. I'll call them issues if someone tears my Watchmen book apart between the pages where the original issues split.

been on a yorgos lanthimos re-watch kick and realized i'd missed this one. i liked it, but Alps has a pronounced lack of Thimios Bakatakis's cinematographic touch.

it actually reminded me a lot of Holy Motors, but not as fully realized. same surrealist vibe to it, but no eva mendes cameos.

Into the Wild

This was an okay Hallmark film.

"Den blomstertid nu kommer"("The Unthinkable" which is the English title for the film. Although the Swedish title is much better in terms of the paradox between Midsummer and...well...the Unthinkable ). Anyways, it is a very good assymetrical warfare film funded partically by Kickstarter. Could it happen? Yes, I think it could.
