Tarik Aktas, 2018

I don't fucking know man.


The Garden Apartment
2.12

Umi Ishihara, 2017

It's got some unfortunate 90's film school vibes but the real low-down DIY approach is pretty good and they do capture some good, uniquely shot-on-digital feel.



2.8

Tatsuya Ishihara, 2018

It's definitely not good. Like at all. Still kinda love it though.

Fabrizio Ferraro, 2018

Yeah, nothing really happens but its shot so well and its not really a premise that requires much to happen anyway. Just a very peaceful, relaxing film with just bit of dread hanging in the air.

Leandro Listorti, 2018

It's scenes from old, unfinished films stitched together. Not the most original idea but it's 100% my aesthetic and the source material is quite compelling.

Erick Zonca, 2018

This is the blandest thriller I've seen maybe ever and there's nothing even vaguely resembling tension. You did me dirty Mubi.

Adam McKay, 2018

I do like McKay's cheeky, semi-lo-fi style a good bit but he didn't pull it off with The Big Short and he hasn't pulled it off here either. I have some hope for the guy going forward but he ain't there yet.

Probably the least I've ever actually looked at the screen during a film. There was nothing to miss. The epitome of whatever.

Bradley Cooper, 2018

So this felt like a movie that Bradley Cooper actually wanted to make and we're in a sad state of affairs if that's something I feel is worth praising. It's got good feel for the most part and the pacing issues are minor and mostly in the first half, though I think that's more due to they type of narrative they're telling and less so any conscious decision. I liked it but it's obviously just way too safe and has that bland Hollywood veneer all over it.

Drew Godderis, 1994

Surprisingly coherent narratively though a lot of the internal logic of the film is completely wack. Watch if you want to hear people angrily shouting "AIDS!" a lot.

(I straight up can't even find a picture from it)

Spike Lee, 2018

Solidly entertaining. Certainly nothing memorable but enjoyable while it was on for sure. Editing is a little jank at points and its got minor pacing issues but nothing too offensive.

Nobuhiko Obayashi, 2017

I don't know how he managed to take all his tricks from Hausu and make something this genuinely effective and emotional but wow this hit me hard. This is just beautiful and entertaining as hell for the whole nearly 3 hour run-time. This is how you pace a film people.

Lars von Trier, 2018

Surprisingly tame for von Trier but also his least obnoxious in a long time. It's fun and humorous and the run-time blows by.

Ryan Coogler, 2018

The pacing, editing, fight choreography, lighting, score, dialogue, cinematography, visual effects and acting are all abysmal and the complete reliance on shoe-horned in exposition to convey everything that happens is completely unforgivable. This is actual trash.

The camerawork is phenomenal, everything is so well staged that everything is perfectly framed no matter how complicated the shot. Everything else is ok and the editing is a bit jank at times.
