Re: General Movie Discussion Thread Part VIII
City of the Living Dead is Fulci's best film, so I'm gonna just select that as my answer. But all of his films seen have been great, so there's no issue with anything in the selection.
Logan Lucky is excellent. Soderbergh is ace, the best, all that good stuff I already knew. But another reason showing me so. I loved this so much. Adam Driver and his missing hand antics all the way.
In less enthusiastic news, Phantom Thread was kind of disappointing. Anderson + Daniel Day-Lewis apparently doesn't work for me. Really reminded me of the problems I had with The Handmaiden, in that when it tried to develop before your eyes with its unsettling reveals/caustic relationships, I found those involved to be kind of insufferable. The ASMR aura/costuming/set design was strong, though. The technical attributes were the highlight. Still, I didn't see much Hitchcock in this and more of a flat variation on Tristana.
You suck the blood of the afflicted.Those lacking imagination take refuge in reality.
