Ah, just watched Dust in the Wind. Plan on watching A City of Sadness next. Have a friend that goes on and on for Mambo, so I'll try to get to that one soon, too.

That's probably my favourite of the bunch. You'll like it for the aesthetic quality alone. This is a pretty good analysis, if that style of writing is your sort of thing. How are you watching these btw?

I found something that has his entire filmography (connect the dots, brutal.) Bookmarked that page.

Yes and yes.

Have you seen a lot of Hou Hsiao-hsien?

I've only seen A Time to Live, A Time to Die, A City of Sadness and Millennium Mambo. All good.

**** yes. That entire final act is built through looks.

Phoenix's ending is the best.

It's honestly one of the greatest action films ever. Just kidding, there's no plot or character development, and instead we get ham-fisted gender politics shoved down our throats. It's just a two hour chase movie, and the last quarter is backtracking. Too much showing, not enough telling.

I've been reading some IMDB user reviews. Good fun.

I need the B&W silent cut in my veins. I don't even know if it's still going to be on the blu-ray.

If there's one shot that visually encapsulates the desperate situation they're in, it's this one. And I laughed. I'd rather they sit down and talk about their feelings though.

The criticism you run into is amusing. They're not releasing the B&W cut on the upcoming blu. I'm sure we'll see it years down the road. It does, exist though; some lucky folks got to see it on the WB lot.

Fury Road (second rewatch). I fucking love this movie.

I could watch a whole movie of Max and Furiosa giving each other looks. Shit, you can figure out their dynamic just from those four gifs.

Also watched Age of Ultron and Phoenix; boring and good, respectively.
