Quick-Thoughts: Luis Buñuel’s That Obscure Object of Desire (1977)

Luis Buñuel Marathon Round 2 (V of V) Hello there. Welcome back to Animal Planet. If you look very closely, you’ll spot an original SIMP in his natural habitat. Blimey!  In every ensuing scene, the actress who plays the supporting character, Conchita, alternates between Carole Bouquet and Ángela Molina. Buñuel purposely does this to disclose […]

Quick-Thoughts: Luis Buñuel’s Tristana (1970)

Luis Buñuel Marathon Round 2 (IV of V) Luis Buñuel, back at it again with writing about perverted old men.  Tristana is another Buñuel piece centered on Catherine Deneuve’s character having an affair, but on the upside, she’s actually cheating on a royal c***sucker of a husband. Don Lope is an old, rich fart that […]

Quick-Thoughts: Luis Buñuel’s The Milky Way (1969)

Luis Buñuel Marathon Round 2 (III of V) *tRavELs thE MiLky WAy buT dOesN’t eVen fiNd MILK* Sure, the movie is heavily reliant on utilizing dialogue to whip up its concerns, but HOLY HELL are they infatuating to listen to. Luis Buñuel’s The Milky Way dexterously associates our present, involving two hobos on a quest […]

Quick-Thoughts: Luis Buñuel’s Diary of a Chambermaid (1964)

Luis Buñuel Marathon Round 2 (II of V) Ay yo, props to Céléstine; I would’ve quit her chambermaid job on day one; that family is nuts! Perverts, rapists, sociopaths, pedophiles, neo-nazis, oh my!  While I was excessively bugged by its crappy passage of time and uncanny resemblance to parts of Viridiana, Diary of a Chambermaid […]

Quick-Thoughts: Luis Buñuel’s Death in the Garden (1956)

Luis Buñuel Marathon Round 2 (I of V) The coloring is f*****g mesmerizing in Death in the Garden. Just from the flicker on a candle tip (not literally though; haha) and Buñuel knows how to glow up a set for maximum effect. This is an exuberant-looking motion picture, taking place at a nostalgic mining missionary, […]

Quick-Thoughts: David Fincher’s The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo (2011)

David Fincher Binge Part VII of VII, 2nd Viewing I think rewatching this movie just made me even more disheartened on the account that Fincher never made a follow-up to this stupendous adaptation of The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo, given all the set-up it does as if preparing for a sequel. I mean, pretty […]

Quick-Thoughts: David Fincher’s The Curious Case of Benjamin Button (2008)

David Fincher Binge Part VI of VII I’m sure Fitzgerald would be just delighted by this adaptation.  Well… Here’s the harshest manner I can put The Curious Case of Benjamin Button into when it comes to words: this movie is just Forrest Gump with a cover-up gimmick, minus the individualistically absorbing characters, minus the charismatic […]

Quick-Thoughts: David Fincher’s Panic Room (2002)

David Fincher Binge Part V of VII Panic Room is somewhat confirmation that David Fincher wanted to take a small break from making another edgy, heavy-duty philosophical piece after the release of his controversial but now acclaimed Fight Club. This 2002 home invasion movie is a simple-minded yet completely acceptable genre movie that blends slick […]

Quick-Thoughts: David Fincher’s Se7en (1995)

David Fincher Binge Part IV of VII, 3rd Viewing  It’s a little curious seeing a lonesome serial killer almost in complete control of a professional police investigation, isn’t it? To know that nearly every homicidal finding is just another fluctuation into the eventual, unavoidable reveal is enough to make anyone in the audience feel contested […]

Quick-Thoughts: David Fincher’s Zodiac (2007)

David Fincher Binge Part II of VII, 2nd Viewing I’ve come to the conclusion that if it were up to just the confines of editing and cinematography, Zodiac would one-hundred-percent be David Fincher’s best film. The low limitation of how many cuts the film allows in a frame, and how distanced it often pulls the […]
