The plot is obviously very convoluted but the horrible sound mix is by now notorious, a lot of the crucial dialogue is unintelligible. If this was the movie to get people back into theatres, they made a huge blunder out of it (just technically, leaving the merits of the plot aside). Would definitely recommend to skip seeing it in the cinema and wait for the digital version with subtitles.
I’m slightly jealous - been wanting to go to the cinema since the spring! Nothing happening in NYC for the foreseeable future. And YES, IMAX films are notoriously loud. Tenet is looking like a future APrime streamer. Thanks.

Default It's too late for angels!!


The Angel Levine (1970, Ján Kadár)

Zero Mostel is an elderly Jewish tailor with a dying and a crisis of faith. In comes Harry Belafonte as a former street hustler-turned-angel who must perform a miracle in the life of a mortal in order to prove - well, I suppose that's he's worthy of wings. Based on a short story by Bernard Malamud this film is a great late 60s New York City version by Hungarian born director, Kadár; a hip parable of sorts that leaves you with a few things to consider. Recommended. Currently on the Criterion Channel but a watchable copy can be found on YouTube.

Just re-watched Cabaret, one of my all time favorite movies, still blows my mind. Such amazing performances, one of the very few musicals (along with Hair and Grease) whose music I really like. I still can't believe how Bob Fosse, who is a dance choreographer originally, managed to film it all so well. Complex, layered, moving, fun. Love it.

I remember that movie being really good despite being based on an overdone rip off of Wolfenstein.

Just took in the first of the 14 Sherlock Holmes films - Hound of the Baskervilles (1939). This is from the Blu-ray box set I touched upon in my latest member journal post about my Arthur Conan Doyle collection. Really enjoyed it!

Borat Subsequent Moviefilm

Started off really good, maybe even better than the original, then it sorta fizzled out. Not without its moments and still a good watch, but you're better off watching Who Is America?.

Spoiler for funny spoiler:
The holocaust denial bit had me rollin.



Doctor Sleep

Obviously no Shining, but I dug it. Pretty engaging and full of awesome sequences which is no surprise from Flanagan. Biggest complaint is that a lot of the plot was pretty videogamified in that the protagonists basically level up to a final boss. Liked the more subtle cinematography/background objects callbacks to the Shining a lot.
