A Movie I Saw

Permalink Lost in the Mountains (2009)
A distillation of everything I like about him. The compressed format serves him well. 
Permalink Like You Know It All (2009)
Maybe it was a bad idea to watch all of Hong Sang-Soo in reverse chronological order? This is more duly melodramatic than I expected from him. 
Permalink In the Loop (2009)
Rewatched on the eve of the Veep premiere. Still a watered down The Thick of It, but that still makes it better than almost anything. 
Permalink Carnage (2011)
World’s longest 79-minute movie. Polanski does well with the material, but that’s not saying much. 
Permalink Damsels in Distress (2011)
This has some really great shots of people looking at food. He usually makes better use of title cards. Very much looking forward to rewatching. 
Permalink The Naked Kiss (1964)
Walked into the theater thinking I was about to rewatch Kiss Me Deadly and temporarily felt like a total herb. The OMGest of OMG moments with the end-of-second-act twist. 
Permalink The Last Days of Disco (1998)
My first time seeing one of Stillman’s movies on a big screen or with an audience. Way more laughs than I expected or ever got on my own. In person, Whit comes off exactly like you’d expect him too.
