Sentence & Still

Under the Silver Lake

Under the Silver Lake Title Card Under the Silver Lake Still

“I created so many of the things you care about – the songs that give your life purpose and joy. When you were 15 and rebelling, you were rebelling to my music… That song was not written on distorted guitar.I wrote it. Here. Somewhere between a blowjob and an omlette. There is no rebellion, there is only me earning a paycheck.”

A wild blend of noir tropes and surrealism, this feels like a masterpiece that will take years to fully decode — incredibly divisive, either leaving you on the outside looking in or inside not knowing what’s going on but entranced never-the-less.

Overlord

Overlord Title Card Overlord Still

“A thousand year Reich needs thousand year soldiers”

Incredible opening sequence, it loses it’s way a little, but Christ it’s fun — the closest thing we have to a Wolfenstein movie.

★★★★☆

Spider-Man: Into The Spider-Verse

Spider-Man Into the Spider-Verse Title Card Spider-Man Into the Spider-Verse Still

“That person who helps others simply because it should or must be done, and because it is the right thing to do, is indeed without a doubt, a real superhero.”

The most beautiful, fun, and engaging superhero movie I’ve ever seen; it’s not a high bar, but I really liked this a lot.

★★★★★

Mine

Mine Title Card Mine Still

“You ever hear about this work in real life?”

A movie that takes place for almost all of it’s running time on the same patch of earth, with an unmoving soldier trapped on a mine; saw this around the same time as The Wall with which it shares an aesthetic and setting, despite some great things going for it this movie does poorly by comparison.
