    They just added a second show of this on Tuesday night - 11 pm. Not sure if you can swing this and then drive home to Ontario that night, but just in case...

    Yeah, that in no way compares. I mean, I love The Shining, but I was never going to the Aero for a DCP screening on a random August night (that I happened to be in Colorado that weekend for a family reunion is irrelevant). The overall point is those theaters (the Aero and Egyptian) need "benefit" screenings also, and yet they haven't been graced with announced (read: profitable) screenings of either this one, or PTA's last one (which also had an announced screening at the Castro).

    That said, the American Cinematheque houses have, I'm sure, seen increased attendance over the past few weeks from people hoping to land the next one; I myself bought a ticket for Grand Illusion this Wednesday in part because of this very factor. Although, as much sense as it would make for PTA to bring that credits-less print down the coast and bookend his mini-tour in his own back yard, I am starting to think that the LA advance sneak thing is played out.

    (The advanced logic needed to unravel the complex matrix of jinxes and reverse jinxes I've initiated in this post is beyond current human capabilities.)

    Just finished watching Margaret, finally. So much to digest. it's pretty amazing, as many here have said.

    EDIT:

    Also, this. I don't really know what to say.

    Hmmm, I don't know. I didn't realize there were different releases. Netflix only has one option and it has no notation on either the page or the dvd itself. It was 2.5 hours long. I did notice some funky edits and at least one moment that to me looked like an obvious re-shoot - really weird cut and totally different lighting. I know the movie was in the can for a while because of something, but I don't know much other than that,

    That's the theatrical cut. The editing is a bit scattershot - some if it seems to be intentional, some seems to be a function of Lonergan being contractually obligated to cut a 186-minute movie down to 150 minutes (the source of the film's lengthy post calendar).

    Glad you dug it. I still need to get off my ass and see the extended cut on BD.

    I watched the netflix DVD version (2.5 hours) of Margaret and I think the entire cast outside of Anna Paquin made it such a better movie. I went from liking her, to respecting her, to loathing her back to feeling sorry for her (maybe not in that order), and that was probably the point since she's supposed to be this teenager swimming in a sea of emotions she can't understand. I did think it was hilarious when the dead lady's friend put AP in her place by telling her off, kicking her out of her apt and telling her she's just a dumb kid. Also, Anna Paquin has amazing tits.

    <insert gif of Anna Paquin walking down the street in short skirt and being harassed by minorities while crying>

    ParaNorman was surprisingly dark. If anyone saw the "Season of the Witch" teaser trailer, that pretty much sells the movie as it is. It's a little uneven, but the 3D is gorgeous (seriously, Laika does 3D better than anyone), the animation is gorgeous, and the story punched me in the gut. This isn't Neil Gaiman goth cutesy-dark. There are bits of this made me think that I if I had children I would have to do some serious thinking before I brought them.

    They'll be fine. Kids need to get scared. I thought it was amazing. So many individual moving characters at any given moment. Laika are the kings of stop motion at the moment. And lots of love for the b-movie horror movement.

    Also perhaps the most fitting credit song I've seen in a long time. O, and stick around through the credits and enjoy that music along with a nice little moment.

    ^Amen. One of my favorite movies of the year. When it was over, i just had to say "Well, damn. Wasn't that great!" 3D is excellent. Hopefully you have a theater that has proper projection going on so you can enjoy the extra dimensions.

    Samsara was pretty incredible. This won't surprise anyone but it's possibly the most visually amazing film I've seen in a theater, and that's due to some unbelievably crisp digital transferring they were able to do from 70mm. As for the merits of the film, it really treads much of the same ground that Baraka did, but does a really good job of exploring its themes and establishing a rhythm through editing. There are a couple ham-fisted moments but some really wonderful ones too. I don't feel like I need to say this but I'll reiterate - go see this if you can, preferably on the finest quality digital projection system possible.

    I'm seeing a free screening of it at USC on Wednesday. Not the finest quality anything, but for free 99 I couldn't pass it up.

    Compliance was pretty strong - gripping, well-written, terrifically acted for the most part. It felt like an American version of a Haneke film, but with a more intimate viewpoint and perhaps a slightly less diseased touch with some of the more icky moments, so it's a little easier to not be throughly turned off by it (though that's not to say I was turned on by it, either). I think that it could be found guilty of starting an interesting conversation without necessarily adding much of resonance beyond the prompt; however, I found its view of a populace that coddles itself on shitty fast food and soda to be more potent than its take on obedience before presumed authority.

    I think that's the norm. There's plenty to love and lots to feel uncertain about. It's appropriate to be thankful someone had the clout to make that quality of film with that cast and that subject matter, if nothing else.

    Liked Borat and whatever the other faggy one was called, but half-watching The Dictator the jokes seemed as stale as Midwestern summer catshit. Where is the Costa Rican rainforest pile? Long, wet, lasting.

    And I guess Avengers is the only movie they play on airplanes nowadays.
