I watched Gandhi today. I’ve seen it a couple times before. It’s a great movie but it doesn’t really show you how horrifying the poverty is. It’s hard to believe how much time has passed since I was there. It’s sad but I’m also glad I did some cool **** when I was young.

Good Time

Loved it. It was really suspenseful and had a panicked realism about it. Explores the chaotic and lawful good and how they impact the neutral. Some of the best drone footage I've seen in a movie and a great OPN soundtrack to boot.

This stars Robert Pattinson right? I’ll have to check it out. Crazy how well he’s turned his career around since lolTwilight

Yep, same directors as Uncut Gems too.

Not too surprised at his turnaround really, the Twilight movies were doomed by bad writing and would've sucked even if it was DDL in Pattinson's role in the series. I feel like anyone who can be in a film and not have John Wayne levels of horrendously terrible acting can work with the right director to get an amazing performance. See: Adam Sandler, Will Ferrell (though he's improved a lot this decade), Jim Carrey, Steve Carrell, etc. Luckily Pattinson is keeping that ball rolling. Doesn't work for everyone though, I think John Krasinski will be forever branded as Jim from the office despite his efforts.

A Quiet Place sucking ass sure didn't help.

I think Pattinson has always been pretty great. Chose to do some bad films sure, but made some bank doing it. Maybe I'm biased because I'm thinking of how great he was in The Lighthouse.

My local indie theatre offered a one-time screening today of the award-winning 1976 classic, All The President’s Men starring Robert Redford and Dustin Hoffman. It was my first time seeing the film and it was quite gripping. I confess that I knew absolutely nothing about Watergate going into the film. It was incredibly suspenseful, brilliantly written, edited, and directed, and the showing was so timely given the current political affairs. I really enjoyed it.

What was even more striking was the technological culture shock of watching the writers for a major metropolitan newspaper uncover a conspiracy without a single computer anywhere in sight. When they wanted a phone number, they walked into a room with a wall full of Yellow Pages, looked up the number, and dialed it on a rotary phone. No cell phones, no PCs… the most contemporary electronic device in the entire film was a ditto machine shared by the entire office staff, and all their notes were either handwritten or rendered on a typewriter. It’s incredible what was uncovered and pieced together from a pile of McDonald’s napkins and matchbook sleeves.

LOVED this. I watched it since my friend kept accusing me of literally being the main character.
Spoiler for details that will interest nobody:
(because of, for instance her carrying little God's eye/ojo de dios around-- I have one hanging above my bed and started inexplicably collecting them recently-- and it was the main character's birthday, and my birthday as well while watching-- so that was fun-- AND she was fixated on cloning and I've been eyeballs-deep in cloning-related conspiracies online lately. Which naturally was triggered by me wondering about the current status of all the Britney Spears related conspiracy theories.)
The movie sort of reminded me of Safe (which I also LOVE) with Julianne Moore.
