Death Proof 8.5/10

10th viewing or so, but the first one in almost a decade. And I continue to like it even better with each viewing. It's by far the most precise QT movie. Mostly because he used all the craft he acquired making Kill Bill and put it to use in much more restrained movie. Also, the astonishing editing of Death Proof makes the lack of Sally Menke in the latest QT films all the more painful.

A few random notes:

1) I've always been aware of the film's feminism but it's the first time I see how 100% of it revolves around genders, sexuality, power, and of course, sexual power. In a great way.

2) It was nice to see the two bars on screen, I hadn't seen the movie since the few days I spent in Austin years ago and went for a drink in one of them and for a burger in the lap dance one. No juke box (hence no lap dance) in the actual place though.

3) I know only Stanton is with me on this. I don't care about the other ones, I'm objectively right (that one is for you Drink). I'm not sure if film history will prove me right though, considering most of the filmmaking community hates the film too. So this is a fight I'll continue having for years to come. For a better cinema.

Escape from Sobibor (1987)  8/10.  Very good, true story of the largest escape from a WW2 death camp.  2hr 22 minute version free on Youtube https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=G0WOOdDzq8U, shorter version on Netflix or Prime

It’s not that Noodles and Stanton are wrong about Death Proof, they’re heinously wrong.

You can all but see that movie die a slow (or a quick) death in the second talkie scene at the diner.



Claudia, we need you to appear in LOST COMMAND. It's gonna revolutionize the war genre..

Nocturnal Animals (2016) - 3/10. Total load of crap. Twice.

why did you watch this crap twice?

i saw this last night and will never see it again

firstly, I covered my eyes throughout the vomit-inducing credits sequence. I am sure Tom Ford got a kick out of making straight guys throw up. Having 300-pound naked chicks dancing. This is the first Tom Ford movie I've seen, and it'll be the last. The only thing good about this movie - some very good performances - and a nice use of color having all the main female characters with flaming red hair.

I didn't watch it twice. I meant: "two total loads of crap."

Poor little snowflake  :-*
That opening made me laugh a lot. I loved it. Very David Lynch.

Anyway, apart from the rest of the movie... you guys seriously didn't like the car scene?

Nah, the talkie scenes are terrific. They hook me all along. You have to like the car crash though.

You mean the opening scene of the novel, with the family in the car? Yeah, that was good.

The novel scenes are definitely the best part of the movie.

I agree.

What's your rating by the way?

I had to go to the horrible state of Mississippi for a few days, which involved lots of iPad movie viewing in hotels and planes.

Pretty Woman (1990) - 7.5/10
Fun, classic rom com which I've never seen before. Incredibly dated socially though.

The B-Side: Elsa Dorfman's Portrait Photography (2016) - 6/10
Errol Morris' weakest movie. The story and the stylization are very dull, but at least he keeps it short. Elsa's artistry is excellent, but I'd much rather Google Image search her work than sit through the doc. If it were any longer my rating would be much lower.

Paris Is Burning (1990) - 7.5/10
A great doc on gay culture and a time capsule of 80's NYC.

To the End of the World ... and then Back Again (1989) - 6/10
A portrait of Werner Herzog's career up til 1989. He details his philosophies on film and his work in general. Not much of interest here, other than some great Herzog-isms ("Nature is stupid and obscene... it is poorly planned")

Ballad of the Little Soldier (1984) - 8.5/10
A mid-length Werner doc and one of his best I've seen of the many.

Fata Morgana (1971) - 8/10
Herzog at his most experimental, free-flowing and quirky. Feels the most like Malick here visually and in structure.

Good Boys (2019) - 6/10
Silly fun, amusing throughout with a good laugh here and there. Wont watch again.

Team Foxcatcher (2016) - 7.5/10
A by-the-numbers doc stylistically, but with an effective narrative. The facts and storytelling in this are almost completely different from Bennett Miller's film. The documentary does not even mention Dave Schultz' brother Mark, who is the protagonist of Foxcatcher. He's also a real person, though, and undeniably involved in the real-life murder. So why hide some of the biggest facts from a documentary? Historical accuracy aside, it's an engaging documentary. I would need to further research the real history of the subject, which the doc seems to twist quite a bit. If it's as off as I think it is, this is more like a 3/10.

Nausicaä of the Valley of the Wind (1984) - 8/10
Great Miyazaki adventure but a bit too convoluted with plot.

I should really deduct 4 or 5 points just for forcing me to see the first few seconds of the credits sequence before I covered my eyes.

I thought it was very Lynchesque also.

However, they could have jettisoned all the L.A. stuff and just kept the West Texas scenario and it would have been like a tight little Noir thriller of yore.

if vomiting from seeing naked 300-lb. women makes me 12, I hope to never grow up.

of course. definitely, the story within-the-story is much better than the story. but the whole point is how getting this novel is reminding her of her ex. and all the artsy fartsy Tom Ford crap.
