Metal Heads

I am playing some catch-up right now, with about five thousand juggling balls flying at my face all at once (there goes my social life), so apologies if I don't rap rhapsodic too much and just get to the damned point with some things -- some people have been waiting for me to just get to the point for decades so this is a boon for those bitches. Anyway I have two NYFF reviews that went up at The Film Experience yesterday that I have yet to link to here on this site -- you can read my thoughts on Titane, Julia Ducournau's follow-up to Raw, right here. This is out in some theaters today too, so maybe y'all will have opinions if you're in one of the cities where it's playing. I mean anybody who watches this movie will have an opinion -- it coerces opinions. It is coercive! And I also reviewed Drive My Car from Japanese director Ryusuke Hamaguchi, right here, which is at at the total opposite end of the spectrum -- Drive My Car is slow and thoughtful and sweet to every aggressive impulse from Ducournau's film. I suppose both movies are about people who love their cars, though! In very, very different ways! But they're both excellent, seek them out. Now onto the next thing...
