    First Reformed

    What was everyone's read on the ending? I thought

    First Reformed

    I figured out I was watching about as soon as I could, and I guessed the climax almost as quickly, but really threw me for a loop. None of that dampened my appreciation of the movie, though. In some ways, I wonder if the foreshadowing was deliberately heavy to give you a sense of inevitability and fatalism as you're watching it; knowing what was probably going to happen didn't make it any less agonizing to watch it play out.

    The Miseducation of Cameron Post

    The Miseducation of Cameron Post, which is about a "gay conversion" camp, just got a rave Sundance review in The Guardian. It stars Chloe Grace Moretz and was directed by Desiree Akhavan, whom I recently liked in Creep 2.

    Logan Lucky (2017)

    I liked it well enough, but I didn't think it was very funny. There weren't many jokes, and most of them land better in the trailer than the actual movies. I spent a lot of it thinking Soderbergh hates small town people on an almost Woody Allen level, but the last act turned around my reading of the movie.

    The Picture of Dorian Gray

    Annie Clark (St. Vincent) is directing an adaptation of Oscar Wilde's novel The Picture of Dorian Gray, and in this version, "the title character will be a woman." Clark directed a short film, "Birthday Party," that was in the horror anthology XX, which is currently on Netflix. Her segment had a fun premise, but I thought it didn't do much beyond the basic setup.

    Comrade Detective

    Comrade Detective is a new Amazon show with an extremely odd premise. It's about a Romanian TV police drama from the 80s that has been rediscovered and dubbed by the likes of Channing Tatum, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Nick Offerman, Kim Basinger, and others. It sounds like the setup for some kind of bizarre high-concept spoof. The thing is, though, they created the Romanian show for this series and stylized it to look like it's 30 years old, and it's genuinely a pretty good show, particularly in how it depicts communist propaganda from the insider's perspective (e.g. Americans are the villains infiltrating the country with Jordache jeans). I get the feeling they planned it as a joke, but when they saw how good the Romanian actors were, had to play it straight more than they had intended.

    I'm still trying to figure out how I feel about Dunkirk. I get that having coatracks instead of characters is a feature, rather than an oversight, and that it's central to what I think Nolan was trying to show with the movie. But at the same time, the anonymity of everyone in the story (especially in the Mole parts) kept me at a distance in a way that works against the immediacy of the movie as a whole. Still not sure if that's my problem or Nolan's, though.
