Re: Web of Sex Scandals

I've read other hot takes that omit the phrase assault and instead use the word misconduct. Also, I recommend 'The Atlantic' piece "Aziz Ansari and the Paradox of No." It draws attention to the miscommunication between the two of them, how he could text her the next day saying he enjoyed t...

Re: Web of Sex Scandals

Look, obviously my heart goes out to anyone who's made to feel cheap, but it muddies the message from raising awareness of sexual assault to...what? Guys shouldn't try to have sex on a date? Despite the backlash, several reputable news sources are saying this story matters and we need to talk about ...

Re: I, Tonya reviews

Watched 'I, Tonya' again because my girlfriend wanted to see it and she was very taken by it. Pretty much every woman I speak to these days loves it without hesitation. The men I speak to have reservations about its tone, its nastiness, and the tightrope it walks, almost as though they're slightly p...

Re: Phantom Thread reviews

This movie is excellent. Comparisons to 'Mother!' are inevitable but it towers in comparison. While it doesn't quite know exactly when to quit, I think it ends wonderfully. It's so much richer than simply the portrait of a woman pulled into a torturous relationship with an artist. As with all recent...

Re: Pre-Christmas Look at the Top Races

A quick word on Sam Rockwell. I don't know about you guys, but there's really only one person out there that this guy reminds me of: Christopher Walken. Both of them are known for playing dangerous people. Weirdos. Sometimes they're scumbags, sometimes pathological liars. Walken's baddies tend to ru...

Re: Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri reviews

Huh, with Stuhlbarg I was sure, but with Rockwell’s character I hadn’t really thought about it. He’s clearly a case study in repression and misdirected anger so it makes sense.

Re: Call Me By Your Name reviews

Mister Tee wrote Now, it's possible the novel was more explicit on this issue, or it's possible I (along with BJ) am being naive/obtuse, but I saw nothing in the film that definitively characterizes Stuhlbarg's character as closeted. There’s a scene where Stuhlbarg is looking at slides of male stat...

Amending my statement: Oliver felt to me like a sketch, not Elio.

Re: Call Me By Your Name reviews

Uri wrote Elio is the most obvious, surprisingly available complicit for him to play on this primal fascination/attraction. Reading this, all I can say is that’s a very interesting idea that wasn’t at all apparent to me while watching the film. Although perhaps more of the fault lies in Armie Hamme...

Re: Pre-Christmas Look at the Top Races

Wild card for Best Director: Craig Gillespie for 'I, Tonya.' Everybody I'm talking to loves the film. It seems to be over-performing at the Guilds. It's a big, flashy Scorsese-aping mini-epic that plays just fine at home. Is the director's branch looking to honor one of their own? He's a journeyman ...

I absolutely thought that Michael Stuhlbarg was talking about being closeted.

Re: Everything Is Great and Amazing

I went off of Facebook today. I have a heavy and exciting work load to finish by the end of the month, and to be perfectly honest, I don't need this shit. I am in favor of opposing President Trump at every turn, but this isn't news. It doesn't help anybody. It doesn't inform anybody. It only hurts t...

Re: Call Me By Your Name reviews

It's been twenty-four hours since sitting down to watch 'Call Me By Your Name' and the film has seeped blissfully into my memory. However, there is one thing I can't quite shake from the film and that is Armie Hammer's character. I'm not sure his motivation and character comes fully into view. 'Call...
