    Was wondering where one might be able to view this?

    It's on the Criterion Channel streaming service for 6 more days along with a couple other of his films (Rebels of the Neon God, Stray Dogs).

    I found Stray Dogs incredible. That film will stick with me.

    Beyond the Mat
    Think i may have seen this when it first came out back in the day, was a great watch then but in heinsight probably even more powerful today. It couldn't of been more in the right place at the right time in being allowed so much backstage access. Probaby the best wrestling documentary ever and I couldn't recommed it more to anyone who may not be a fan, such a facinating world filled with so many crazy characters and a true slice of late 90's life which we'll never see the likes of again

    The "Something to Wrestle" podcast has a great episode about this documentary with some funny background.

    Also, I recommend "Wrestling With Shadows". That's another great documentary (and it's got classic Stu Hart footage, what's not to love?).

    it's realy good and it's on netflix. i havn't watched any movies of this dude, thanks for the recommandation!

    I've only seen his film "Christine". Rebecca Hall and great musical selections are about the only redeeming qualities of this film for me.

    Ironically my issues with the film somewhat align to the documentary "Kate Plays Christine" but I loathe that doc as well. 

    The former takes far too many liberties to explain an unknown. The latter seems purpose-built to moralize about how awful it is to take such liberties. At least the former has an excellent lead. The latter is a low-worth thought-experiment.

  4. On "First Reformed":

    This feels like a dream project of sorts for Paul Schrader. He wrote a book once on "Transcendental Cinema" (focusing on Bresson, Dreyer and Ozu) and I think this film was...if not his attempt at replicating this style, was certainly an homage to it (the ending leaves no question). 

    I also feel this film doesn't totally work. There's too many references (I counted Bresson, Melville, Bergman and even Antonioni's "Red Desert") that take things all over the place. Ethan Hawke does about as well as one could with the role. There's an interesting thread of an ascetic "purity" of the clergy and its place/marginalization in a modern culture. I think it's the resolution to that (or lack thereof) that I found to be a hinderance.

    With that said, the final shot is simultaneously an affirmation of as well as a provocation to Bressonian values that got a chuckle outta me.

  5. Watched Vitalina Varela yesterday. Floored me. Varela's face is so beautifully expressive and this was likely the best performance I've seen in years. The final scene calls back to an earlier moment in such a devastating way. You should see this.

    And @Schlitze, here's some trivia for ya, you fuck:


    A Warp artist's music is briefly used in the film. And good luck scouring the web to find confirmation on it (you won't), but it's true.

    That would be a first.

    At the very least, they have tons of Uyghurs to use for this. I'm sure they would if they could.

    I saw Harry Wu speak once many years ago (mid-90's). He spent the majority of the lecture emphasizing that China had created a huge industry of imprisoning people and not documenting anything, executing them and harvesting organs. Harry Wu is not a tin-foil hat conspiracy theorist and he presented some evidence for his claims that had been smuggled out to him. 

    On the basis of that lecture alone (but I could cite other instances of China hiding the tragic plight of large amounts of their people), I wouldn't be surprised if they are doing internal testing within the mainland.

    Based on absolutely no evidence whatsoever, I think the sound will land somewhere between Onesix and Exai. I'd be ecstatic over a return to their more melodic sound but I think those days are behind them. Massively hyped for this all the same, and am confident I'll like it no matter what direction they go with it. 

    Lots of chatter on the artwork, which you know, sure. It could be more interesting. But I think it'll fit the aesthetic of the album and nobody will care a week after it's out.

    why. the film is off the rails when it goes too far out of hollywood. they should have just cut the scenes out. 

    You claim the film takes place almost entirely in an apartment. This is false. One of Lynch's greatest talents is implying a sense of claustrophobia when it's not actually there.

    As well, I have no idea what "too far out of Hollywood" means. To be pedantic, part of Mulholland Drive (including what's shown in the opening credits) is actually in Hollywood. As well the idea of Mulholland Drive being geographically boring is equally baffling to me. It's one of the coolest scenic routes in L.A. and a lot of people do idiotic racing on it so boring is a bad descriptor. As far as the movie, I quite like how it shifts. The tone is different but the film itself is still a linear trajectory.
