Finally caught Manchester and its definitely the best thing I've seen this year, along with Shin Godzilla. I also don't think a Williams was overacting even the slightest. It's exactly what the scene called for, I dunno. Either way though - fantastic fucking movie.

To each their own. I loved her for every other second she was on screen, but that particular scene got out of hand, for me, very quickly. I just didn't think it needed to go as far as it did, and I didn't care for it. Really glad to hear you loved it, though .

Well, finally saw Silence.

To speak of something like Manchester in the same sentence is insulting. Scorsese is operating on an entirely different level here, one which few, if any, American directors are capable of. It won't be everyone's cup of tea, but I don't know how one could fail to see the mastery, even if visually it's more restrained than what Marty usually does.

Still need to sit with this for a couple days to expound more, but it's beautiful and haunting. Essential to see this in the theatre.

I'm re-reading the novel right now. I read most of it sophomore year and enjoyed it greatly but it's been a while.

It just expanded this weekend from an exclusive Arclight and Landmark run to the Laemmle and AMC chains. It's definitely playing in Burbank.

Very curious to hear what you and Ashley think.

I'm a huge fan of the NoHo Laemmle and support them whenever possible (just saw Manchester there last week), so I'll pop by there next weekend and see it. Auteur director, great story, Neeson will actually survive deep into this one. I have high expectations.

Over the next few days, I have discount viewings of Hacksaw Ridge and Hidden Figures to go to, so that will be fun.

I'll be seeing it up the hill in Palos Verdes so I can mingle with the obnoxiously rich.

I dunno, Manchester was just really funny, really sad, often in the same moments. Very confidently directed for someone who's never been anything close to a formalist directors.

I honestly don't know that I need another 3-hour long crisis of faith Scorsese film in my life at any point.

So, I take it you will be going to see Silence.

I realized this week that there are four Coen Bros movies I haven't seen. I thought I'd seen them all. But here's the ranking of the ones I've seen.

I would think this one would be more up your alley, formally at least.

You're near San Pedro? There's a phenomenal sandwich shop there called the Busy Bee. Check it on Yelp.

The Man Who Wasn't There is one of my Top 3 Coens. The Ladykillers is probably their worst so you're not missing much. Intolerable Cruelty is funny but inessential. The Hudsucker Proxy is divisive, but I also count it among my favs.
