Extremely current thoughts on 2019 films.

I have been watching a lot of movies. I have an enormous watchlist, some of which I keep on letterboxd.

For no particular reason I’ve been kinda focused on 2019 films. I’ve seen abt 100 & there’s 40ish more 2019s on the list. My hottest takes so far are shit you’ve already heard: Parasite phenomenal, Midsommar scarring, Jojo Rabbit great, you’re fucking dumb if you haven’t seen Ford v. Ferrari, etc...so we’ll move on to my other, medium-hot takes:

- if you need a film about fucked up rich people: Ready or Not (rented) > Knives Out (Prime).
- if you need a film that absolutely no one has discussed, try Butt Boy (Prime). I watched it & I was not mad at it. If you, too, have seen Butt Boy, lemme know & we’ll discuss its merits. DiaryLand can be the first forum to host the Butt Boy discourse.
- I liked The Assistant (hulu) & Jezebel (Netflix), they have similar pacing & are both led by an actor who can do heavy lifting.
- hated The Lighthouse & my only takeaway is the gigantor mermaid vajíne which my friends assured me was onscreen for 3 seconds but I’m fairly certain it was there for 119 hrs. I fukn screamed.
- Les Misérables (2019, not the musical, Prime) = extremely The Discourse.
- The Dirt (Netflix): I had fun.
- Fighting With My Family (hulu): I had fun.
- Noelle (Disney+): I had fun, will probably watch it again this Christmas.
- Richard Jewell (HBO): thumbs up
- Pain & Glory (rented): highly recommend. When your mother goes away, it’s extremely hard to reconcile the things you got right. I had to pause several x to wipe tears/de-snot, for it was...
