  • 32:22 Whoa! That clip of Andrew Garfield in a red bathroom wearing a red shirt came on right when I was picking gunk out of my bong using a red paperclip! Symbolism?

  • So he morale is that men are horrible misogynistic monsters and women are victims of the patriarchy? Wow, what a unique point of view never seen in modern times media (sarcasm). Added to the list of movies to avoid.

  • Here are my thoughts, spoilers ahead: This is not a movie you are just going to sit down and watch casually. You won't want to this watch with a group of friends. It's the kind of movie you get assigned as part of some English assignment. It's not just because it's highly gratuitous; with large amounts of pornographic scenes, gratuitous violence, and even a close up of someone's 2-coiler. It's one of those David Lynch style films. This is loaded with bizarre events, impossible creatures and fantastical elements. What's metaphor, what's a dream, what's real, are all questions you are going to be wondering, and will likely never get answered. It's a weird mix of murder mystery, supernaturalism and film noir. Think Donnie Darko meets Pans Labyrinth meets Chinatown. There are so many simultaneous plot threads and randomly introduced characters it's hard to grab on to anything tangible in this schizophrenic tale. In this 2.5 hour stemwinder the major plot point includes a dog serial-killer, a killer half-lady-half-owl, dead billionaire with 3 dead hookers, secret codes hidden in records, and a huge bunker built underneath Hollywood. Tantalizing stuff, if only any of it reached a satisfying conclusion. I don't need everything explained, but some sort of closure on anything would have really helped this, and if nothing else a shorter run time.

  • I don't think movies like this "try to be weird". I think it's purposely inaccessible -- it's meant to be watched with friends, and then you discuss it and figure out what it meant and what happened (like "Pi" or "Primer" or "Enemy" or "Mullholland Drive", et cetera). You guys love Eraserhead, right? Just think of it like that.

  • Under The Silver Lake is probably the best film I've ever seen. I might have a more favorite film, but UTSL is probably the best. It felt like a Haruki Murakami novel combined with a David Lynch film. I was hooked for the entire duration, the pacing is great, there are creepy moments combined with hilarious scenes, and it had a very satisfying conclusion. And I noticed a heavy Gnostic theme - not sure if that was intentional or just a coincidence. I can't recommend Under The Silver Lake enough.

  • this is the single most important movie of our era. many scenes and the entire plot has a double meaning... plus USC Science professor Kevin Knight is credited at the end in the Crew Section as Cryptographer... they hid stuff in the film... look up who he is, the 3 dolls the girl has have markings on them, it's the Zodiac Code, same code that Kevin broke using computer programs. Would you like to know more?

  • Reminded a lot of The Neon Demon. Both films are super stylized takedowns of a particular subject, but also kind of trashy exploitations of that same subject. Refn has kind of gotten full of himself, and I hope Mitchell doesn't go down that path, because I mostly dig what he's doing.

  • After watching this movie, which I enjoyed, it struck me that we were watching life through the eyes of somebody with schizophrenia, or something like that. It makes sense in a way because he is down on his luck,out of money, worried mother etc. I figured he ran out of meds and he slowly starts seeing the world around him in a strange new way. I have several friends who have different levels of mental disorder, and many times when the meds go wrong or are not taken, they act just like this guy or worse. My take on this movie.

  • ( I realize that this isnt a comment for RLM, but for the other people watching this. ) Just wanna say I actually really liked Detective Pikachu, found it funny and great. I definitely disagree that detective pikachu would be called a terrible movie... Its a movie for kids and fans though. Ryan Reynolds does a great job. Also think its a good movie for parents to bring their kids to. Yes its a bit of an obvious story but it has parentmoments too.

  • I love "It Follows" so I was excited for this. Until I saw the trailer. It looked like some awful, incredibly pretentious passion project dumpster fire Sophmore film the likes of which we got from Rian Johnson (The Brothers Bloom), Richard Kelly (Southland Tales), and Ana Lily Amirpour (The Bad Batch). I then saw that Jay liked it, so I decided to give it a chance. I made it about an hour until I couldn't stand it anymore. It was everything I feared it would be....but worse. I fucking hated everything about it. I decided to tough out the last half hour, but then I realized I still had an hour and twenty minutes left. 140 minutes? Are you fucking kidding me? I just turned it off right there. Nobody should have to sit through 140 minutes of a dude blowing smoke up his own ass like this. PS: "It Comes At Night" is a great film.

  • To me, the fact that the powerful conspirators cabal resort to silly shit like hiring a universal composer to write messages to themselves in songs isn't a plot hole at all. You guys focused too much on the supposed message, but it perfectly works in universe. Bear with me. The guys at the top in UTSL are not the elites of our world. The guys at the bottom are not the common people of our world either. This is a world where commoners are profoundly shallow and apathetic, and the illuminati unironically believe, with complete fervor, that burying themselves until their inevitable death will make them gods because the pharaos did it (which they very much didn't, pharaos were gods from birth, and after death they were buried with their entourage because they believed the soul must brave challenges after death to not land in hell). Pretty girls barely even come to hollywood to make it as actresses, most seem perfectly content to party and fuck, even after landing roles. Girls are offered to be involved in ritualistic suicides and they're totally cool about it. One girl sees Andrew Garfield come to a party and immediately fawn "I like your shirt~" in a sultry voice even though he's wearing a plain white one and clearly has no sugar daddy money to offer. Did you think "holy shit that's an actual person" here? No. This world is little more than a puppet show. Sure, if you absolutely have to view that hot mess from our world's perspective, then this is fucked up exploitation. In the movie's universe, it's more like a pointless orgy for everyone involved, rich or poor. The illuminati communicate via cereal boxes because they are irrational and will pursue everything to feel superior to the rabble, including turning all of culture into their deranged instagram. Sevence and the guy in the hut at the end are not smart men. They'll clearly die in atrocious circumstances in months, after living a very silly life of decoding shit, but as long as they can laugh at Andrew Garfield and say HE is the one who lives for nothing, they can ignore that.

  • Id rather watch 10 movies similar to detective pikachu with their unintentional or intentional silliness and botched money grabbing schemes than the crap let's say... lanthimos puts out there, with their epidermic symbolisms and COOL weirdness. You guys are preoccupied with meaning as if trying to figure out and piece together what the creator was thinking when making a movie is important and somehow cathartic. Even though you didn't think, you didnt form an opinion of your own you just sat through a movie for 90 minutes trying to figure out what some asshole behind the scenes was thinking when making it . And why you did that? but of course so that you could triumphantly declare your mental superiority to all the plebeians and average grunts who dont know better, unlike you, you who is able to see beyond the shadows cast on the wall and reach for the truth
