The Devil's Backbone
A Brighter Summer Day
Police Story
Blind Chance
Stalker
Thief
Blow Out
Branded to Kill
Riot in Cell Block 11
Alambrista!
An Autumn Afternoon
Le Cercle Rouge

That's like half of em. I mostly grabbed stuff that wasn't on HBO Max so I could have a chance to actually see it.

I really liked some of those Jean-Pierre Melville movies, Alain Delon was/is one cool cucumber.

I don't think I've seen Blind chance but I've seen everything else by Kieslowski after it, the Dekalog being my favorite.

Nice, I recently added Riot to my watch list, looks gritty. A Brighter Summer Day is a hell of a cop too, we're lucky to have the criterion edition instead of the low res laser disc that was around before then. One of my faves.

While waiting for the kids to come home from school, I watched the Danbury Trashers story on Untold: Crimes and Penalties (Netflix).

I laughed my ass off.

Top 5 most tears shed for me, also heavily badass.

I watched this movie Marrowbone last night and I thought it was pretty good tbh, dark period thriller



Also watched recently:

The Lodge
Honeymoon
Yi Yi
A Bride for Rip Van Winkle
Swallowtail Butterfly (I already posted that but it's an incredible film and I wanna bring it up again)
Love Letter
Picnic
Shrew's Nest
Uncut Gems
The Terrorizers
In Fabric
Brick
Good Time

Among others, but these were noteworthy

Everything everywhere all at once (2022)

A lot of thoughts about this one but essentially, I found it mildly entertaining, occasionally emotional although also shmaltzy and a kind of free-for-all meandering mess. The Wachowski's could probably sue for copyright infringement for some elements which may or may not be on purpose.

It's probably a much better movie in an alternate universe.
