    Movie #144/ New Movie #93/ 2019 Movie #11/ Seen In Theaters #16: Joker
    This film is interesting beyond the larger controversy. It is a story that borrows heavily from 1970s/ 1980s crime dramas, but does get to its own story of a pathetic man who finds success doing monstrous things. Joaquin Phoenix’s main performance is terrific, as he blends together multiple personas: the troubled Arthur, his fantasy version of himself and his own take on one of the great and comic book villains.
    8/10

    Movie #145/ 1980s Movie #11/ BFI Top 100 #4/ Criterion Edition/ Channel #31: Withnail and I
    A different than usual take on the road trip as a struggling actor and his roommate travel from London to the British lakeside, facing misunderstandings and a perverted uncle. Richard Grant shines as the self-destructive Withnail.
    9/10

    Movie #146/ New Movie #94/ 1960s Film #12/ Nation’s Best #2/ Spanish Language Film #4/ Criterion Edition #32: Memories of Underdevelopment
    Consistently rated one of the best Cuban films ever, it takes an unusual perspective at the revolution, through the eyes of a successful middle-aged man who generally wants no part in it. It seems surprisingly relevant in the current culture where middle-class people (especially men) are trying to make sense of new standards.
    10/10

    Movie #147/ 1970s Movie #11/ Best Picture Winner #2/ AFI Top 100 #3: Annie Hall
    This take on a failed relationship still works on so many levels. It’s really witty, allowing Allen his best starring role, but also demonstrating some self-awareness in his many flaws. Diane Keaton is fantastic as a female lead who goes from the main character’s love interest to surpassing him.
    10/10



    Movie #148/ New Movie #95/ 1930s Film #12/ Nation’s Best #3/ Criterion Edition #33: Limite
    This is a rare film I can’t really rate after seeing it once (the only other time I’ve said that was with the original Birth of a Nation.) It’s an odd narrative with striking visuals but a story that’s intentionally hard to follow.
    Unrated

    Movie #149/ New Movie #96/ 1960s Film #12/ Nation’s Best #4/ Spanish Language Film #5/ Criterion Edition #34: Viridiana
    It’s BuŮuel’s masterpiece so it’s probably not that surprising that it takes some weird turns, but from the initial story of a novice about to take her vows visiting her deeply troubled uncle, it goes in a very different direction, pissing off an entirely new set of people in the process, while still telling the excellent story of a woman trying to make sense of the world and to do good according to her faith.
    10/10

    Movie #150/ New Movie #97/ 1970s Film #12/ Nation’s Best #5/ Russian Film #2/ Criterion Edition/ Channel #35: The Mirror
    Tarkovsky’s take on the memories of a relatively ordinary man, shifting from the present of 1970s Russia to his childhood in the 1930s is strange but beautiful, creating a fully developed character we barely even see, while allowing Margarita Terekhova to depict two nuanced women in his life: his mother and his ex-wife.
    10/10

    Movie #151/ 1960s Movie #11/ Best Picture Winner #3/ BFI Top 100 #5: A Man For All Seasons
    I’ve been a bit disappointed to see this on some lists of the worst Best Picture winners. It’s one of the best British costume dramas, and depicts some important philosophical ideas extraordinarily well. Paul Scofield’s Thomas More is probably historically inaccurate (the real man was more of a historical zealot), but he captures well a man trying to find some alternative to his conscience and the demands of his good friend the king, whose careful silence does lead to one loophole.
    10/10



    Movie #152/ 1930s Movie #11/ AFI Top 100 #4: A Night at the Opera
    It’s Marx Brothers, so it’s damn funny. Duck Soup might have been a bit more relevant, but it doesn’t have the stateroom scene.
    10/10

    Movie #153/ 1980s Movie #11/ Best Picture Winner #4/ AFI Top 100 #5: Platoon
    Stone’s masterpiece is a powerful take on the experiences of a young soldier, who slowly realizes the biggest challenge in Vietnam isn’t the Vietcong but his own side’s descent into madness and compromise. Willem Dafoe and Tom Berenger deserved their Oscar nominations as rival mentors, but this was one fantastic cast.
    10/10

    Movie #154/ New Movie #98/ 1930s Movie #3/ Best Picture Winner #5: You Can’t Take It With You
    This Best Picture winner is definitely lesser Kapra, worth seeing for the chemistry of Jimmy Stewart and Jean Arthur, as well as the development of themes that are better handled in It Happened One Night, Mr Smith Goes to Washington and It’s a Wonderful Life. It’s almost like someone else’s pastiche of the great director.
    7/10

    Movie #155/ New Movie #99/ 2019 Movie #12/ Seen In Theaters #17: It-Chapter Two
    This is definitely a step down from the first part. There are just moments that donít ring true, but I wonder if it really even could have worked or if it was fatally flawed from the beginning. Maybe splitting It into two different films largely in different eras doesnít work because a monster isnít as tough when weíve seen it get beaten by some middle school students, and people pushing 40 but acting like kids just seems kinda sad. Bill Haderís performance is pretty strong; immaturity works best for an emotionally stunted stand-up comic.
    6/10

    Movie #156/ New Movie #100/ 1940s Movie #12/ Criterion Channel/ Edition #35: The Body Snatcher
    I keep watching this Val Lewton adaptation and thinking Iíd like to see a stronger defense of body-snatching from a medical ethics perspective. Itís an interesting take on a young medical studentís moral growth, with Boris Karloff and Bela Lugosi as side characters; their interactions are a highlight.
    8/10

    Movie #157/ New Movie #101/ 1990s Movie #13: Event Horizon
    I saw this based on reviews in an Empire podcast discussion, which primed me to appreciate it on a higher level since I got the impression it was critically successful. It really wasnít (6.7 on IMDB, 27% on Rotten Tomatoes) but it felt like it couldíve been. Itís a weird blend of several things that are creepy by themselves, but work well together. Itís bad enough having monsters in space where survival is already an uncertain prospect and any mistake can kill. Add to this heroes in an unfamiliar setting experiencing strange hallucinations. And then a religious element. Yeah, itís sometimes silly. But the designs make up for it.
    8/10

    Movie #158/ 1970s Movie #14: Halloween
    Itís one of the best-done ďslasher stalks teenagersĒ films. The main reason Iím not rating it higher is that it doesnít really have anything to say, although Michael Myers is an effective antagonist, and Jamie Lee Curtis and Donald Pleasance are decent examples of horror movie cliche heroes; the girl who doesnít know sheís in a horror movie, and the expert upset that the threat isnít being taken seriously.
    8/10

    Movie #159/ New Movie #102/ 2019 Movie #13/ Seen In Theaters #18: Zombieland 2- Double Tap
    Itís a decent action comedy that builds on the cast dynamics from the first film, and adds some good new characters. Itís sometimes a bit cheap and ridiculous, but it mixes humor with legitimate life and death stakes pretty well.
    7/10

    Movie #160/ New Movie #103/ 2018s Movie #12: Halloween
    The sequel deals effectively with the legacy of the babysitter murders, while also offering chills in its own right. Itís not as strong as the original, and we are consistently aware that the bad guy is an elderly man, but it may have more to say about trauma.
    7/10

    Movie #161/ New Movie #104/ 1940s Movie #13/ Criterion Channel/ Edition #36: The Ghost Ship
    This Val Lewton film disappeared from for public view for decades following a lawsuit, so itís relatively obscure. Itís on some top horror films lists, but it doesnít really feel like one. It isnít horror any more than Platoon or Training Day, or any movie about a young man suspicious of a superior. It is a decent drama on that topic, especially with a bad guy who is a bit more sympathetic than one would expect. The answer to whether the captain is a monster is more complicated than just yes or no.
    8/10



    Movie #162/ New Movie #105/ 1940s Movie #14/ Criterion Channel/ Edition #37: The Seventh Victim
    Thanks to a Criterion channel subscription and the short length of these films, Iím covering a lot of Val Lewton this month. This one gets legitimately creepy, and serves as a highlight of the producerís sense of atmosphere. The satanism plot is a bit silly, although the guilt about lesbianism in the 1940s provides more drama.
    8/10

    Movie #163/ New Movie #106/ 1940s Movie #15/ Criterion Channel/ Edition #38: The Leopard Man
    This take on the hunt for a leopard in Mexico seems a bit like a proto-version of Jaws; a dangerous predator is hunting down residents of a sleepy community, and the authorities donít want to disrupt business as usual. Itís a Val Lewton film, so there is a tremendous sense of atmosphere, and a twist about the bad guy, although the discovery isnít executed very well
    7/10

    Movie #164/ New Movie #107/ 1980s Movie #13: Friday the 13th Part 2
    I mustíve had a deprived childhood to miss out on the shlocky Friday the 13th films when I might have enjoyed them the most; all Iíve seen so far is the first, so itís interesting to finally see Jason as the killer, albeit a different kind of murderer than the pop culture figure he becomes thanks to the sequels. Heís not that effective a bad guy when heís a disfigured loner who lives by himself, although there is a decent campfire ghost story aspect to everything; something the film is very aware of.
    6/10

    Movie #165/ New Movie #108/ 1940s Movie #16/ Criterion Channel/ Edition #39: I Walked With a Zombie
    This Val Lewton film gets interesting for what it says about some thorny topics like colonialism, although the story of a young nurse falling in love with a man who has a dark secret about his marriage is rather derivative of Jane Eyre and Rebecca, elevated by the Caribbean environment.
    8/10

    Movie #166/ New Movie #109/ 1970s Movie #15/ Italian Language Film #1: Deep Red
    Dario Argentoís giallo horror has a terrific sense of atmosphere, and a lot of decent concepts that work together pretty well, starting with a psychic sensing the presence of a murderer, and an excellent example of a major clue hiding in plain sight.
    9/10

    Movie #167/ New Movie #110/ 1930s Movie #17: The Black Cat
    A rare flop for Universal horror, this film was also notoriously edited and censored, which may be why itís so short and disjointed (what remains is quite creepy especially the villainís marital life). Itís still a satisfying story about a bland young American couple caught in a conflict between Bela Lugosiís foreign former prisoner of war and Boris Karloffís mad scientist. Future noir master Edgar Ullmer provides a terrific sense of atmosphere, with settings at a universal budget. Danny Reid had an interesting review about how this is all a metaphor about how Americans just donít understand the nastiness of the first world war.
    8/10

    For the final entry in the films watched in 2019 series, I’m having Scorsese inspired subchallenges, with at least five films by him and at least five films he really likes: those he selected for his list of best movies for Sight and Sound, for his Criterion “Best” list, or for his world cinema project. I’m also aiming at rewatching five films I’ve seen this year, checking out at least five 2019 Oscar contenders (which is obviously going to include The Irishman), continue with watching five films considered the best of a nation, checking out at least five Italian films (which is going to overlap with Scorsese’s favorites) and getting the total number of Criterion editions (or films available on the Criterion channel) to 52, partly to justify all the purchases whenever there’s been a sale on Criterion editions.

    Movie #168/ New Movie #111/ 2000s Movie #14/ Scorsese Film #1/ Criterion (Channel) #40: Val Lewton- Man in the Shadows
    The Scorsese narrated and produced Val Lewton profile is standard but worthwhile. It provides details on an interesting life, creative decisions, and studio difficulties, even with the unique problem of a reclusive lead, especially by Hollywood standards. It’s not exceptional, but it provides for a greater appreciation of some decent films.
    7/10

    Repeat Movie #1/ Scorsese Favorite #1/ Nation’s Best Round 2 #1: Memories of Underdevelopment
    Watching it again, I have the sense that it is a truly special film. It’s a technically daring spotlight of a man who doesn’t really care about the revolution going on around him. Interesting on a lot of levels (a spotlight of Cuba during the aftermath of the Bay of Pigs fiasco, an arrogant man who uses women getting surprised that there are consequences to that, developments in a failed marriage.)
    10/10

    Movie #169/ New Movie #112/ 2019 Movie #16/ Seen In Theaters #19/ Oscars Conversation #1: Jojo Rabbit
    The controversy over whether this movie should be made in these divisive times is really overblown; this is the correct moment to explore the ridiculousness of Nazis and their supporters. Scarlett Johanson is excellent as a woman doing her part in the resistance whose son is a fanatic, with the third Reich setting shaking up the typical coming of age stuff. I get that a lot of stuff was edited out from the suddenness of the ending.
    8/10

    Movie #170/ New Movie #113/ 1990s Movie #14/ Scorsese Film #2: Casino
    Scorsese’s take on the rise of the mob in Las Vegas repeats a lot of what we’ve seen in Goodfellas, complete with De Niro and Pesci, in a way that remains really entertaining, with some of the most fun infodumps I can remember. No one will rate this above Goodfellas but if that’s your absolute favorite film, this could be in the top ten.
    8/10

    Movie #171/ New Movie #114/ 2000s Film #15: Batman Beyond- Return of the Joker
    This doubles as a finale to the 1990s Fox Batman adventures showing their greatest tragedy, as well as the greatest challenge of the Spider-Man-esque teen Batman of the future. The oddball sci-fi concepts don’t distract from a story about regret and loneliness.
    9/10

    Movie #172/ New Movie #115/ 1980s Movie #14/ Scorsese Film #3: After Hours
    Not what you’d expect from a guy who was responsible for two dramatic masterpieces that are regulars on “Best of” lists before he went on to a comedy about a crazy night out in pre-Giuliani New York. The dated elements have their charm, although there’s a consequence that doesn’t really make sense with the tone of the film.
    7/10

    Movie #173/ New Movie #116/ 1960s Movie #17/ Italian Film #1: Two Women
    The Italian neorealist film that won Sophia Loren an Oscar for a foreign-language role in the 60s seems to have fallen out of favor. It is quite powerful, covering a widow’s efforts to protect her daughter in the chaos of the second world war, with memorable difficulties and reactions.
    9/10

    Movie #174/ New Movie #117/ 1980s Movie #15: War Games
    Surprisingly slow for a thriller about potential apocalypse. I wonder if that’s because it’s dealing with computers in the early 80s, when the process of various things (getting plane tickets from Seattle to Colorado) just takes longer, or if they’re viewing it partially as a caper, where the process is part of the charm. Still fun.
    8/10

    Movie #175/ New Movie #118/ 2010s Movie #15: White Creek
    This is a hard one to evaluate as a microbudget I picked up from the library because “feudalism sci-fi” sounded interesting as a concept.
    Ungraded

    Movie #176/ New Movie #119/ 1980s Movie #16: The Last Starfighter
    I could see why it has a cult following, and why it didn’t make a lot of money in the box office. It’s a Star Wars knockoff where an American kid gets a chance to be Luke Skywalker, and go to space, but a lot of focus is on the Earth stuff, and the alien bad guys aren’t all that interesting.
    7/10



    Movie #177/ New Movie #120/ 1960s Movie #18/ Swedish Film #1/ Criterion Edition #41: I am Curious Yellow
    For a generation, this was the highest-grossing foreign language film in the box office, mainly due to interest in the sex scenes, something that had a high enough profile to get into even Spider-Man comics. It might be imitation Godard in how it’s about being cinema, but there is some compelling material in spotlight an activist’s struggles, that address her concerns and why people see her as ridiculous, and then a fake behind the scenes at the making of the film as a lead actress dating an older director falls for the male lead that plays with the artificiality.
    9/10

    Movie #178/ New Movie #121/ 1950s Movie #14/ Italian Film #2/ Criterion Edition #42: The Flowers of St. Francis
    A decent film about some of the adventures of a great and generous man trying to do right in a society that doesn’t quite respect him. Rossellini captures the medieval era well, showing what is ridiculous about how St Francis lived and what was so glorious about it.
    9/10

    Repeat Movie #2: Vox Lux
    This remains a really interesting film, tackling some big questions in contemporary society: what do we expect of artists? does art influence terror? with an exceptional soundtrack (both the catchy songs by Sia that double as commentary on music and satisfying in their own way, and the instrumentals by Scott Walker.)
    9/10

    Movie #179/ New Movie #122/ 2019 Movie #17/ Seen In Theaters #19/ Oscars Conversation #2: Parasite
    Bong Joon-ho takes a clever concept with a lower class family lying their way into jobs with an upper-class family, and adds some crazy twists to it, along with decent commentary in a story that has a uniquely Korean flavor but remains relevant elsewhere, even if I’m not as sympathetic to the have-nots as many of the viewers. But that speaks to a depth of characterization, that there is enough material to come to different conclusions.
    9/10

  9. #99

    Default



    Movie #180/ New Movie #123/ 1960s Movie #19/ Scorsese Film #1/ Criterion Edition #43: I am Curious Blue
    I could see why this companion piece to I am Curious Yellow wasn’t as successful. It’s more of a reedit than a continuation. The new material is solid, dealing with her search for a lost mother, and a liberal activist’s take on the prison complex, but it’s not on the same level as what we saw before.
    7/10

    Repeat Movie #3: Return of the Prodigal Son
    I picked up Criterion’s Pearls of the Czech New Wave on a sale. I’m definitely checking out the rest last year, but this remains an interesting take on a disillusioned man in a weird society (the communist-ruled Czechoslovakia) and an example of why this era of film is so interesting: the films of a communist society with greater artistic freedom than is the norm.
    8/10

    Movie #181/ New Movie #124/ 1960s Movie #20/ Italian Film #2/ Criterion Edition #44/ Scorsese Favorite #2: Salvator Giuliano
    An unconventional biopic in which the lead mainly disappears, and we see the stories of some of the people affected by an Italian rebel . Early on it seems more like vignettes, but it connects together pretty nicely.
    10/10

    Movie #182/ New Movie #125/ 2019 Movie #18/ Seen In Theaters #19/ Oscars Conversation #3: Knives Out
    This modern mystery is quite satisfying with an excellent cast, nice twists (both in terms of what happens and how the viewer finds out about it) as well as a terrific cast.
    8/10

    Repeat Movie #3: Faust
    Possibly Murnau’s most beautiful film, and a unique take on an old story, focusing more on the temptations of love to a lonely man who suddenly has the power to transform himself, and how everything goes tragically wrong.
    10/10

    Movie #183/ New Movie #126/ 2018 Movie #13: A Simple Favor
    This mystery does have some big similarities to Gone Girl, playing with different cultures and media landscapes (the fashion industry, mommy blogs, California parents associations) with decent performances by Anna Kendrick as a young widow realizing she might be manipulated, and Blake Lively as the trainwreck missing friend with more secrets than people know. A taboo topic comes up pretty quickly in the story, and becomes a major part of the text and subtext.
    8/10

    Movie #184/ New Movie #127/ 1960s Movie #21/ Italian Film #4/ Criterion Edition #45/ Scorsese Favorite #3: The Leopard
    Beautiful film about the end of an era as an Italian aristocrat deals with the changes of the Risorgimento era with dignity, but perhaps not always the best responses, even if he seems eager to get out of the way. Burt Lancaster is tremendous in a role in a language he doesn’t speak for an ethnicity he doesn’t quite share. And all the various little dramas (love triangles, social climbing, mysterious mostly unseen matriarchs) are interesting.
    10/10



    Movie #185/ New Movie #128/ 1980s Movie #17/ Nation’s Best Round 2 #2: A Better Tomorrow
    Sometimes the most popular Hong Kong film ever. It’s a conflict between two brothers, where Chow Yun Fat steals the show essentially as the sidekick. The violence is over the top, but it’s a solid exploration of the consequences of some career criminals’ actions a few years later.
    8/10

    Repeat Movie #3/ Nation’s Best Round 2 #3: The Mirror
    It remains strange and dreamlike, moving around with a stream of consciousness logic, but does demonstrate, along with Andrei Rublev and Stalker that Tarkovsky is a giant cinema, even if he didn’t make all that many movies.
    10/10

    Movie #186/ New Movie #129/ 2019 Movie #19/ Seen In Theaters #19/ Oscars Conversation #4: Star Wars- The Rise of Skywalker
    The finale to the Skywalker saga isn’t terrible but it isn’t great. It’s the worst of the new trilogy, the worst of the finales, and might be worse than any single MCU film. It’s a cliche to say this, but it probably should have been split into two films, one to set up the Emperor’s return and one to feature his defeat. It seemed to try too many things, but couldn’t do it particularly well, even if I did like Babu Frick.
    6/10

    Movie #187/ New Movie #130/ 1940s Movie #17/ Scorsese Favorite #4/ Italian Film #5/ Criterion Edition #46: Paisan
    Rossellini made a bold film to tell six stories about the interactions between Americans and Italians in the final days of the war, each told by a different writer with a different cast, but maintaining a satisfying sense of cinematic continuity. The best are highlights of Italian film; the worst aren’t too bad.
    10/10

    Movie #188/ 1970s Movie #17/ Japanese Film #5/ Criterion Edition #47: Lone Wolf and Cub- Sword of Vengeance
    I wasn’t the biggest fan of the adaptation, but my brothers got me this box set for Christmas last year and these aren’t bad, if B movie takes on a much better manga.
    7/10

    Movie #189/ 1970s Movie #18/ Japanese Film #6/ Criterion Edition #48: Lone Wolf and Cub- Baby Cart at the River Styx
    The sequel is a slight improvement with better set pieces and some interesting moral questions.
    8/10

  10. #100

    Default



    Movie #190/ New Movie #131/ 2000s Movie #16/ Nation’s Best Round 2 #4: The Black Book
    Verhoeven’s return to dutch film seems like it could be a disaster; a very R-rated love story between a Jewish spy and a Nazi. But it works, due to characters responding appropriately to tremendous stakes, and exceptional leads in Carice van Houten and Sebastian Koch.
    8/10

    Movie #191/ 1960s Movie #22/ Criterion Edition #49: Monterey Pop
    This remains my favorite concert movie ever, just in terms of the quality of the music (Hendrix!) and how well it captures the era.
    10/10

    Movie #192/ New Movie #132/ 2019 Movie #20/ Seen In Theaters #20/ Oscars Conversation #5: Richard Jewell
    Tarantino’s tale of a slightly strange guy who finds himself under investigation by the FBI and the media comes at a useful time; all the conversations about why this film shouldn’t be told speak to its necessity. There’s a solid cast, and a good sense of a decent man who has always respected authority realizing that he’s being treated poorly by them.
    8/10

    Movie #193/ New Movie #133/ 2019 Movie #21/ Oscars Conversation #6: The Two Popes
    I fully get the historical inaccuracies and the subtext of how conservatives should get out of the way of the liberal future, but this remains a very well-made film about ideas, and conflicting visions of the future. Hopkins captures Benedict’s intellect and aloofness, while Pryce captures the future Pope Francis’ ambivalence about power and the conflict between respect for tradition and the need to modernize.
    9/10

    Movie #194/ 1990s Movie #15/ Criterion Edition #50: The War Room
    Because my brothers know me so well, this year for my birthday they got me some Criterion Blu Rays, including the Kennedy Films of Robert Drew & Associates, Michael Radford’s 1984 and this intimate look at the behind the scenes of a successful underdog presidential campaign.
    8/10

    Movie #195/ New Movie #134/ 2019 Movie #22/ Seen In Theaters #21/ Oscars Conversation #7: Uncut Gems
    I saw this one by accident; I meant to catch Bombshell with my brother but it was rescheduled. It is a decent version of the film I expected with Adam Sandler in a very intense performance as an unlikable guy hanging out with celebrities chasing a big score who owes shady people a lot of money.
    8/10



    Movie #196/ New Movie #135/ 2019 Movie #23/ Scorsese Film #/ Oscar Conversation #8: The Irishman
    The compliment and potential complaint of this film is that when fans of the new Hollywood of the 70s say they don’t make these kinds of movies again, they are specifically referring to this kind of movie. This is Scorsese’s Unforgiven, the mob film from the perspective of someone at the end of the era, although it may also be the best Godfather imitation in film as well. Tremendous.
    10/10

    Movie #197/ New Movie #136/ 1960s Movie #23/ Scorsese Favorite #5/ Criterion Edition #51: Contempt
    It’s Godard so it plays around with style, although the boldest move may be a pivotal half-hour conversation between a troubled married couple. It captures well the compromises of an artist in the film industry, and the unraveling of a marriage of two people who don’t quite understand one another.
    9/10

    Movie #198/ New Movie #137/ 1980s Movie #18/ Scorsese Film #5: King of Comedy
    An interesting riff on celebrity culture, with a very different performance by Robert De Niro and Jerry Lewis quite believable as a late night host.
    8/10

    Movie #199/ Silent Movie #11/ Nation’s Best Round 2 #5/ Criterion Edition #52: Phantom Carriage
    This Swedish silent film seems very appropriate for New Years. Includes some truly iconic imagery, and a powerful story of sacrifice and redemption
    10/10

    Movie #200/ New Movie #138/ 2019 Movie #24/ Seen In Theaters #22/ Oscars Conversation #3: 1917
    Mendes adds to the single shot corpus with an excellent story about a particularly dangerous British mission during the first World War. The long unbroken take technique is used well to convey the sheer difficulty moment by moment, with some clever sequences and twists (IE- something big happening when the camera is on one of the leads.)
    10/10

    Some more-or-less random thoughts regarding mt film list for last year.

    Best film watched: Joker. For the longest time, I thought this was going to go to Destroyer: a moody crime drama starring Nicole Kidman as a homicide detective haunted by a choice she made while deep undercover years earlier, whose life comes crashing down when her past catches up with her. However, in the last month, it was surpassed by Joaquin Phoenix's haunting portrayal of a man slowly going mad, and a chilling study of exactly what it takes to create a monster.

    Worst film watched: Racket Girls. Not even the MST3K treatment could save this clunker. Unlike last year's worst movie--Alice in Murderland--which was a masterclass in incompetence of all aspects of movie-making (acting, script, direction, effects, etc.), this film is merely unremittingly dull. The plot (something about using a women's wrestling stable for money laundering) is barely enough to fill a 1/2 hour TV show. Instead, the plot is endlessly padded by long sequences of women's wrestling matches that have zero relevance.

    Best documentary: Being Evel. This may be a bit of a cheat as I only watched one feature length documentary. However, I found this a fascinating study of one of my childhood icons. Constructed from interviews of those who knew Knevel (his wives, his children, his business partners, etc.) and archive interview footage with Evel himself, the film paints an interesting portrait of this fascinating but deeply flawed individual.

    Best Animated Film: April and the Extraordinary World. This movie was released in 2015, but had somehow sailed completely under my radar until. A fascinating steampunk alternate history that does not skip on the 'punk' part of the setting.

    Best discovery: April and the Extraordinary World. I am a huge steampunk fan, but had somehow never heard of this little gem. This would be a strong contender for my favourite steampunk film of all time.

    Guilty pleasure: The Quick and Dead. Sam Raimi's criminally underrated western starring Gene Hackman and Sharon Stone, alongside a (just) pre-famous Russel Crowe and Leonardo DiCaprio. Toss Lance Henriksen into the mix and you have enough blood and thunder to slake the appetite of any western fan.
