I have! I'm still unsure if it's a study of toxic masculinity or an indulgence of it

another round is a great film imo and, quite intentionally and unexpectedly for all concerned in the aftermath of the director's daughter's death, a painful meditation on irrevocable loss and how to get through

It did compel me to lay off bourbon for a couple days

MANDIBLES (Quentin Dupieux)
The stupidest art film of the year, directed by a Gallic auteur who specializes in one-joke dumbbell comedies, about a giant fly and two French stooges, is also one of the funniest and most charming.

this is accurate!

An intriguing blurb in J. Hoberman's list...

4. ON THE ROYAL ROAD: THE BURGHER KING (Elfriede Jelinek, Seagull Books)
Nobel laureate Jelinek’s tragicomic satire, translated from German by Gitta Honegger, isn’t a movie, but it should be—a lengthy monologue delivered by the Muppet Miss Piggy, eyes bleeding à la Tiresias. Regarding the unnamed king: “He tells us that already earlier we thought like him that never thinks.”

Do you even understand how cheap it makes your Best Of The Year list seem if it hits on December 1st. At least November 26th is a point of view.

I can’t believe Joachim Trier of all people is hurting the chances of DRIVE MY CAR (and MEMORIA), the best position a standard-bearer arthouse film has had to being widely recognized as the best of the year since… TONI ERDMANN?

Milm & Foovies (Eric H.), Friday, 3 December 2021 16:50 (one month ago) link

As much as I enjoyed Summer of Soul (and take it on faith that Haynes' VU doc was great), I'm happy to see a non-music-centric doc cited.

Best actress is going to be a 5-deep slate of deep embarrassments, that seems more likely than not at this point.

I have it on good authority that BP is going to be a good choice, so this might be the revenge of the group's neo-Rex Reed no-taste bloc.

Milm & Foovies (Eric H.), Friday, 3 December 2021 17:41 (one month ago) link

Lady Gaga winning feels like the critics' version of the "we're tired y'all" sentiment.

Chris L, Friday, 3 December 2021 17:47 (one month ago) link

I.e. Biden winning the primary

If only Biden spoke with a Russian-Italian accent.

The Mitchells vs. the Machines is a fun, ingenious, great-looking and quietly features a queer protagonist. Glad it won over any of the year's Disney offerings.
