I saw it again last year. The casting's odd but it works.

at one point during lockdown my gf and i were watching all the films in schrader’s transcendental film book. watched a bunch of ozu and bresson, don’t think we ever made it to dreyer. the two that really stuck with me are ‘a man escaped’ and ‘diary of a country priest’. both totally unique and genius. also so different from each other. my fav ozu is actually one that iirc isn’t mentioned in the book; ‘good morning’, about two kids on a quest to watch tv. i’m not a huge fan of ozu but i like how cozily domestic low-stakes his movies are. im often in the mood for that sort of thing, so i’ve watched like a dozen of his films and would watch another at the drop of a hat

The quality of the farts is what matters.

really enjoyed The Card Collector. not quite as good as First Reformed, but less of a fall off than i was expecting

somewhat disappointed that it isn't about a guy getting banned from zoom poker nights
