Free Solo 

Just ridiculous, stupefying, scary and ultimately captivating insight into a seriously weird choice of life. Harder to shrug off what they do, but still, after the thrills and beautiful vistas it just doesn't make sense to risk it all like that. The fucking heights in this, man... His girlfriend seemed naive to the fact everything else will always be second place. I wonder what his life insurance premium is.

+1. It's an awesome and riveting documentary. One of the better ones in recent years. It does help you understand the mindset of someone who would do this kinda thing.

 Actually I think I'm go watch it again right now.

That begs the question... what does mature angst/nihilism look like?

I've been sorta obsessed with this guy since I saw the doc. It's becoming clearer that he has an incredible, possibly photographic memory and always relies on a structured, methodical approach. Many of his personal variations on various problems are insanely elaborate ways to minimize risks. It probably appears more like a puzzle than an adrenaline thrill to him. His Ted talk shows that super-rehearsed, mechanical delivery in a more naked way since he's so uncomfortable doing it, but still stays on track on the script. Really an astounding athlete, and quite IDM.

I watched Color out of space, been on a Lovecraft binge lately (books, movies, games). It was mostly fun! The effects are a bit rubbish at times, seems they got a bit over ambitious for the budget. B-movie cosmic horror with all the problems of your standard b-movie, but the good outweighs the bad by a good margin. Well worth a watch if you are into this kind of thing.

^ It's really good.

Midsommar 

I'm guessing the inspiration for this came from a heroic dose of shrooms at an actual solstice event. I like the idea of people expecting midsommar to consist of folk-drone dance parties and old people throwing themselves off cliffs, but the cavalcade of far-fetched nordic pageantry is kinda laughable and hard to take seriously. The humor wasn't lost to some reviewers it seems. I really liked the camerawork, the shots and colors were beautiful. The story dragged out needlessly.

Yeah with Midsommar, it seemed like they could’ve done some more believable world-building with that runtime. When I was watching it I was like “LOL it’s a different culture! SOOO different!!” I just liked the idea of it. I need more pagan horror movies.
