August 2023 Viewing Diary

Oppenheimer (2023; d. Christopher Nolan) In general, I am not a Nolan fan (the only one of his I liked was Dunkirk), and I went into this hesitantly because I read an interview with him where he said the whole … Continue reading

December 2022 Viewing Diary

The Whale (2022; d. Darren Aronofsky) I thought it was appalling, and not just for the obvious reasons (i.e. his body is viewed as literally a movie monster, with all these horror-movie shots of his gigantic ankles, etc.) And it … Continue reading
