Barb and Star Go to Vista Del Mar is funny and goes strange places.   I love comedies that get weird.   

Minari and Nomadland are really good movies (almost like docs) that I never need to see a second time.

Just powered through the movie Il Capo Dei Capi...  it was a 6 episode (hour and half each), made for TV movie in Italy that tells the story of Salvatore Toto Reina, who was the main boss of the Sicilian Mafia in the 80's and 90's.  It was phenomenal, the acting was great and I was so happy to be able to find it on Youtube.

If you don't know the story, I highly suggest looking at Toto Reina's wikipedia page... it's far more gnarly than any polished American mob story you will ever hear.  The mafia wars at that time killed over 1000 people in a 2 year span, including bombings, mass killings of judges, cops, families, kids, etc...  A horrible time to be alive in that part of the Siciliy. 

It climaxes with the murder of Judge Giovanni Falcone, probably the craziest mob hit you will ever read about (a skateboard involved!).  An insane story all around, and this movie definitely didn't need to embellish anything.  Quite possibly the best and most realistic mafia movie I've ever seen.

Watched Beat the Devil on prime a week ago. One of the first films with a cult following, originally written by Claud Cockburn, with rewrites by Truman Capote since Claud was on the blacklist on account of his fervent communism. Directed by John huston and starring Humphrey Bogart, it's got some really ahead of its time humor and i was dying laughing. This film and Dr Strangelove are so fascinating considering how current the comedy is and the fact that they're the only films being honest about the absolute fuckedness of the fifties and post WWII landscape
Boi... Sinner really is making the US look like some sort of bandana republic.

I just watched I care a lot. It was pretty great. Its a gangster thriller, with an unusual premise.

This week a Brooklyn, NY film society called Light Industry is Vimeo hosting the Jem Cohen project Lost Book Found.
Cohen is a NYC art filmmaker and this work chronicles New York City moments filmed on 16mm with an autobiographical narration.
I'm not sure bit I think that famous floating plastic bag scene in American Beauty is a reenactment of a scene from one of Cohen's films if. that gives you an idea about his oeuvre.

Not breaking any news here but Gladiator. Missed it in theaters so my dad sprung for a DVD player so we could watch it because a friend told him VHS would do no justice.

Every time something new strikes me. Watched Hellraisers doc not long ago and holy ever loving Christ does Oliver Reed ever stir the spirit. Favorite score too

Just watched Grave of the Fireflies.  Another amazing Studio Ghibli film about two siblings struggling through WWII in Japan.  Not a happy movie but very good.

If you are in the mood for something similar Barefoot Gen (1987) is another WWII animated feature from Japan. Very grim and the big death scene is pretty disturbing on first watch.

I really like Aki Kaurismaki's movies, he's a director from Finland and a strange, funny person. Just watched Le Havre and Leningrad Cowboys.

you could probably watch this little interview and know if you want to see his movies or not.
