I just rewatched Thief from 1981. Scenes like the one in the coffee shop where where James Caan is telling his Joliet prison horror story to Tuesday Weld are so incredibly gripping. The whole movie is well written and the soundtrack is fantastic.

Uh Oh

Seen dark city (1998)? It's interesting to watch and compare it to the matrix. It's also an alright film just for watching.

The Northman was good, but I was expecting more I guess. The audio was amazing. Definitely worth watching.

Digging my own grave, the films of Caveh Zahedi, is a boxset I'm making my way through. The best ones so far have been "A little Stiff," and "I am a Sex Addict."

this is him now and gives a good idea of his brand of neurotic exploration of self and society.

Prince of darkness(1987)
I'm biased towards older movies and I especially love the 80s. The music, the practical effects and hitting just the right amount of cheese. It's not necessarily leagues ahead of other horror- sci fi (maybe sci fi is wrong it's scientists and religion) movies but its like take all the best bits of movies of the genre and combine them for something great.

About to see Inland Empire for the first time tonight. A new restoration at a hundred year old theater and I am stoked
