Nothing much here in this regard. I recently bought Bertolucci's "The Conformist" Blu-ray (the Rarovideo one, restored and packed with great goodies) and watched this new version last night. Such a fantastic film, you can clearly see where Michael Mann's aesthetic sensibilities come from.

What if the latest Tarantino surprised me so positively I feel like it's one of his very best works?

(Note that this comes from the same guy who loves Death Proof more than any other Tarantino's, so your mileage may vary.)

Fuck. I already missed that movie. Thanks for reminding me.

Some days ago I watched Moonlight on Netflix because everybody was praising it three years ago. Nothing special at all. Amazing photography and a very important subject but otherwise totally overrated in my opinion and the end was just not convincing. 6/10 is my final rating.

Still processing the new Scorsese. It's a behemoth and he put so much in it, but I have yet to understand whether he is really saying something interesting and possibly new.

First of all thank you for the nice review of Once Upon a Time in Hollywood. I am looking forward to it and now of course I have to watch the new one from Scorsese. Though I need time. My work schedule is exploding and the film list is going up, too.

^ It's 3 hours and a half of Scorsese glory, with CGI on top of great old actors which may be unsettling (it was to me at first). Take your time, and if you can, enjoy it on a big screen.
