Some stray musings from my recent moviegoing rovings (and ravings):
Jungle Cruise: aRe CgI sNaKeS hAvInG a MoMeNt?!?!?!
Sneakers: Steven Soderbergh’s Ocean’ses are basically spiritual, slicker sequels.
Ben Kingsley: kingly at the wondrously unplaceable accent.
L’Avventura: Is the younger brother in Wedding Crashers based on the painter-of-nudes here?? The pampered son of high society! The hair! The outfit! The personality! Not the sexuality!
The Grandmaster: Can one (1!) NYC theater please screen the longer versions????
2046: Pair it with Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind for a 2004 double feature of big-concept sci-fi that stretches the bounds of our known reality to untangle the past’s inescapable influence on our criss-crossing narratives of romance.
