I'm Thinking of Ending Things 1/09/21
There's a few clever moments in here however, perhaps if you've seen A Woman Under The Influence and Oklahoma five times, you'd pick up more than me who hasn't seen those in near a decade- but for me man at 15-20 mins a piece these car scenes could just feel overly elongated.
The Silence of the Lambs 1/14/18
When I first saw this film I found it one of the most disturbing films ever, I've probably watched a fair 50-70 films since then that make this look soft, however there are still scenes here that are hard to shake.
The most dramatic and touching scenes of the film for me however were those when a young Chiron begins questioning why his mom acts the way she does, and is forced to realize that she's a drug addict.
Scarlet Street 7/10/16
I immediately felt great admiration for this film with the realism of the characters, which is something that is often lacking in not only film noir but most films of this era.
I'd argue that Youth is an even more grandiose and avant-garde film watching experience than either of those films though.
I knew what would happen at the end of each scene from the initial entrance, I pretty much knew how the whole film would play out after the first 25 minutes.
Good Morning 7/19/15
The only other Ozu film I've seen was released in the same year as this charming comedy- Floating Weeds.
