Raw(2017) 7.5/10
Now that's an impressive first feature! It's also the only good horror movie I've seen for decades (granted, I don't watch these too much). Thoughtful camerawork, lots of cool ideas, actual characters (for the most part) and good (for the most part) performances all along... All of this is so rare in a French movie, let alone a first one, that I have no talk about them but the main feature is the plot: the film is the very smart tale of a vegan becoming a cannibal. It never goes where you think it's going, major plot twists are interestingly built up (don't expect any kind of "TADAAAAAAAAAAAAA! HE WAS DEAD ALL ALONNNNG" Shyamalan-like twists, it really isn't about that), in a way that is reminiscent of the amazing The Last of Us (yep, the videogame). I also like the way they interlaced the story with the medecine studies and their rituals.
The ending isn't as good as the reste of the movie (it goes the easy -if not cheesy- way, although the idea behind it is, once again, smart) andI'm not really sure about the rewatch value.

Massacre Gun (1967) - 6/10. A yakuza turf-war film that starts out strong--in b&w 'Scope, with a great jazz score--then loses momentum and bogs down into a series of scenes with characters acting stupidly. That deserted boat where the gambling is supposed to be going on--looks like a set-up, right? And the characters agree, but decide to check it out anyway. And checking it out ends up meaning walking right into the trap. And there they are, trapped in the hold, a million guys shooting at them. [Where are all the ricochets?] And suddenly the guys who were cornered have escaped! As the stupidities piled on, I checked out. Amazon Primers can watch it for free here: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B01MEGB5EG

 ;D

The film isn't that gory. As usual, what is suggested is way more disturbing than what is shown.
On other news, and for what it's worth, RAW has now been publicly acclaimed by both Mr Edgar Wright and M. Night Shyamalan.

M. Night Shyamalan.
Cannibalism plays a part in Mr. Shyamalan's latest, so that doesn't surprise me.

Beau Séjour (2017): A girl wakes up all bloody in a hotel room, but (almost) nobody can see her, because she's been murdered. As she sets out to find her killer, her death starts to cause tears in the small town community she's from. Not a movie, but a brilliant dark & intense 10-episode TV series from Belgium. I haven't been this touched by a TV series in a long long time. Supposedly it's been picked up by Netflix for international distribution. Don't miss it. 9/10

The Idiot - 5/10
I've seen twenty-something Kurosawa films, and sadly this one joins Sanjuro as one that I just don't like very much. I don't think the four hour cut would have helped, either.

BoJack Horseman - 8/10
First three seasons, caught up to this point. Excellent stuff. Of those I've seen, one of the most unique animated sitcoms in terms of long form narrative storytelling. Oh, and more importantly, it's fucking funny.

I'm lust watching this, it is entertaining, but so far I'm not as enthusiastic as you. After 6 episodes a 7/10

BoJack all the way, dude. I really like it. You just have to hold on a little for the first few episodes: they aren't as funny as the show can be, and the power of the narration really strikes towards the end of season 1 ("Am I a good person?"
I love the show, especially it should be nothing more than an animated version of Californication and really succeeds in becoming much more than that. But if you're looking for groundbreaking animated show, Rick and Morty is the hottest thing right now.

I used to visit Dilsen-Stokkem, where it takes place, quite regularly, and some of the characters and the way they interact really brings back memories. So yes, my high rating is partly triggered by that :)

ive heard many great things about rick and morty from bojack fans, will consider watching. "Am i a good person" is definitely the episode that pulled me in for good.

Every single person involved in screenwriting should watch Rick and Morty season 2 as soon as possible.

"Am i a good person" is definitely the episode that pulled me in for good.

"Am I a good person" is the scene I show to people who stopped watching BoJack after a couple of episodes.

La gueule ouverte / The Mouth Agape (1974) - 9/10. A woman with a terminal illness dies at home while her family--her husband, adult son, daughter-in-law--look on helplessly. But life goes on and the men get laid as often as they can (they're French). Pialat eschews all melodrama here--there's certainly none of that fantasy BS that ruined Amour--and we get the experience as naturalistically as possible. The scene where they put the actress in a coffin and screw the lid down is not something I will forget soon. There is no non-diegetic music in the film. What the hell happened to French cinema?
