So Knock Knock was worth checking out? Doesn't look like I'll get a chance to see it in the theatre (Drafthouse is only screening it after 11pm for some reason), but I may pick it up later.

Sounds like a very productive marathon! Understandable that there was a lack of comments on the films then. I did see your tweets on some of them, so that was cool.

Supposedly It Follows hits theatres here this month, and since Drafthouse keeps mentioning it I assume they'll have it at least. My March list wasn't supposed to be visible yet, so I've hidden it for now. That's what I get for making a list late at night. Heh.

Off now to update the Netflix list before crashing. Hope you have a good week!

Yep, the 2nd ep of Black Mirror was my favorite too. I wasn't aware of the Christmas ep though, so thank you. I found it on YouTube so I'll get that watched soon enough.

I'm now following you on Twitter. mrdissonance is my name there.

I am indeed alive! While 2014 was a shitty year for the most part for me I survived it and am going into this year swinging. Or something like that. My productivity this month hasn't been what it usually is, which is why my list was delayed. It doesn't help that I got hung up watching all of the UK TV series Black Mirror which is on Netflix & I highly recommend. Smart stuff that is.

Oh yeah, and I noticed in your 2015 list you mentioned tweeting. Any chance you tweet in English? And if so that perhaps I could follow you? I mainly lurk on there, but am always looking for worthwhile people to follow.

All right, off to maybe watch something before sleep wins out tonight. Hope you're having a good new year so far & all is well!

My Scientology Movie
Louis Theroux is not the man you send after Scientology. His unique brand of puppy dog -like looks combined with an unending thirst to learn more is the perfect way of coaxing information and opinions, and thus learning the psychology of, religious nuts and people working in fields unusual to others who want to proclaim them outwards. People with a need to be heard or seen. Scientology, despite it's position as a religion, does not want either of those things. It wants to exist as a succulent growth on the world, sucking out money from people who have yet to learn of it through some form of media, who happen upon the promise of eternal spiritual riches in a street corner. As such, this documentary lacks a central, current Scientology figure for Theroux to latch on to. He does it instead to a former Scientology top-level employee, and whereas the results are occasionally interesting, they never really tell us much about this subject, something Theroux spends most of his film attempting to penetrate. The most interesting footage we ever get are his numerous encounters with Scientology hit-squads who show up at street corners to film him, dodging any and all questions. Louis' persistence to get information out of them provides them with an interesting opponent, someone who doesn't shy away from an awkward confrontation. Alas, they're still fruitless moments, as Scientology does not share anything from within. As a result, the film feels sort of like a failure, and doesn't even approach the level of most Theroux-works.

The Girl with All the Gifts
I wrote a Finnish review of this in November and everything I said at the time still holds: http://www.laajakuva.com/the-girl-with-all-the-gifts-2016/ This is the best serious zombie film since the 70s (that's an admittedly low bar) and I admire every inch of how uncompromising it is when it comes to telling this story. There is no hope of communication with the other, no one can survive, and everything is founded on lies. Really, it just tells the story of all our lives!

La La Land
Someone actually gave Damien Chazelle enough money so he could make a lavish color version of a Busby Berkeley -musical and that makes me rather happy. La La Land is a mix between Berkeley's wild, imaginative Broadway show-esque musicals where singing and lyrics barely made any songs but relied heavily on dance choreography and surreal sets, and one of Jacques Demy's musicals, the name of which I won't write here because it would immediately divulge the entirety of the story of La La Land, because it's the same exact thing. To the Berkeley-aspect of the film, the most vivid differentiation is that it's in color. Which isn't to say some of Busby's films weren't, but it's a refreshing change for a modern musical to actually use color rather than dim it down or use it to heighten some offbeat camp attitude. The way La La Land uses color in practically all scenes to set various moods or create gorgeous visuals seems effortless, which for something that must have taken an immense amount of planning, is quite the praise. The choreography and sets aspire very directly to the Astaire/Berkeley originals, and often reach similar heights. The camera work, almost identical to the latter, with the added ability to fake much longer single shots than in the 30s and 40s, helps immerse you a bit more. I wish the film was as succesful at being a Demy-pastiche, but the quite direct ripping of an iconic story is, especially as the film copies the closing shots from that film, jarring. It removes the everday aspect of the original by making itself about dreamers (who knew, a Hollywood musical about people daring to be creative and dream) instead of love, a distinction it drives through all the way until the end. These two parts clash a bit, because the Demy-musical was always explicitly about singing your emotions and creating catchy music where as Berkeley was rarely about emotion or even the music but rather about show, the glitz, the glamour, the imagination he could pour into the dance. There's a definite feeling within La La Land of having your cake and eating it too, but the balls-to-the-wall attitude does make for a highly entertaining experience even if it starts rapidly deteriorating in your head as you spend more thought on it.

Creepy
You know what would've also been a really good title for Kiyoshi Kurosawa's latest? "Abject, Soul-filling Terror" or "Asphyxiating Existential Horror". So yeah, leave it to Kurosawa, one of the few actual masters of modern horror film to make a horror film about trust. The title of a "master of genre" is too easy to give out nowadays, but this man solidifies his reputation with Creepy, as he seems to understand something so few people do when it comes to horror films explicitly built around a social theme; You don't just take a social phenomenon such as trust and break it to make your film terrifying. You take that idea and instead of breaking it, you twist it. You use it for nefarious purposes it was never intended to be used. Through this, you can achieve levels of terror horror films can only wistfully hope to aspire to. Creepy absolutely nails that aspect. There are issues with it as a story – more on that later – but when it comes to making you feel like a corpse in a plastic bag that's slowly getting vacuum-sealed, it's on the money. The ever-present ambient hum that prevails over the film is key to it. It might be noises from a street, from a small park, from a university – or it might be high- or low-pitched beats, intensifying as scenes that begin as innocent grow more and more sinister. And when the film goes silent? You know everything has gone wrong. The other key part is the ways in which Kurosawa manages to twist and turn his thematic focus up and around. This isn't a film that has plot twists in it. It's a very slow, steady progression over two hours. Trust is built over a length of time, and he does what he can to showcase this with the pacing of his film. But like I said, the true stroke of genius, mastery if you will, is hidden within what he does with trust. What his characters end up doing in the name of it, how they mistake absolute truths in their lives to still exist when trust – the typically most affluent and and loyal of human emotions – has eradicated them in their absence. It is absolutely insufferable to watch because it causes you mental anguish on terrifying levels. This might be the new best Kiyoshi Kurosawa film and I don't say that lightly. The only detractor might be that in order for the trust concept to work, the screenplay has to take some leaps I wish were smoother. The protagonist, at one point, has all the power to stop the ongoings, and all he has to do is speak truthfully and in detail. Instead he rambles like a maniac even before the traumatic event that causes him to do so is revealed. I don't necessarily see it as a major detraction, since in terms of going this balls-deep in a theme some leaps are bound to be necessary. As such it feels as much of a leap as accepting that in the world of Ringu there are ghosts. As a last note, let it be said that the psychopath in this film is probably the best performance I'll see this entire year and it's the 12th of January. He has the grin of a Brian Azzarello Joker brought to stark reality.
