So lemme get this straight...you felt the movie was super pretentious because "nothing happened" for the entire length of the movie but the last ten minutes which was filled with symbolism and ambiguity...that wasn't pretentious and you liked it?

HA! Yorke's an outlier.

I remember the moment I realized—not just intellectually, but viscerally—how young my parents were when they had me.
I was looking at a photograph of my father holding two-year-old me in his arms. He was about 26 years old at the time.
I stared at his face, its youthful curves, the light in his eyes, the gentle way he held onto my hand (mainly so I wouldn't yank his glasses off his face).
I had a strange sense of time telescoping out on both ends. I thought of myself at 26 years old, how young and wild I was.
It still seems unbelievable to me that he was that young. He was such a good dad. I would love to ask him about his life. I would love to ask him what it all was like for him.

"Aftersun" is Wells' beautiful attempt to do the same.

The pretentious part was the 90 consecutive minutes of literal nothing I had to sit through to get to the one interesting scene. And the interesting scene was cheating because one of the big factors that made it effective was they took a great song that wasn’t even written for the movie

At least it was better than Tar

I am convinced you don't know what pretentious means.

For some reason the stop-motion holds up pretty well today despite a lot of the representation, of non-white characters and of women, seeming to be predictably pre-historic.

The funniest exchange in all of the film has to be:

JACK. Say, I guess I love you.
ANN. Why, Jack! You hate women!
JACK. Yeah, I know. But you aren’t women.

The Menu

Not a fan.

Movie had a lot of promise and was just squandered by a flat third act. I laughed a bit and Ralph Fiennes was great but the ending really ruined the whole film for me.

The hilariously stupid ending was my favourite part.

Anyone catch Skinamarink? It overstays its welcome quite a bit and has weirdly expository dialogue for the form, but otherwise I thought it was great. Definitely a lot of notes of James Benning, Lynch, and Michael Snow (who died a few weeks before it hit the screens) throughout. The ending and a few other scenes of barely visible faces and doorways were revolutionary and extremely effective. Above all it's worth seeing just to see the angry bros walk out of the theatre. Excited to see what the director does next and what this influences, this is a brand of horror that's been pretty much untapped until now.

Frownland enjoying Skinamarink is the most predictable thing I've ever seen on this forum
