Antlers Holst: This dream you're chasing,where you end up at the top of the mountain,all eyes on you. It's the dream you never wake up from.
Did Jordan Peele or Hoyte Van Hoytema ever name-drop Kerry James Marshall when they talked about their gorgeous night-time filming?

I liked Nope better my second time through; not that I precisely disliked it the first time, but it kind of played out long-game-like. I wasn't entirely sure how I felt about it the first time. But it sat on me. And sat on me. The movie wouldn't let me go. So when I did finally watch it that second time last week a bunch of stuff clicked into place, and that's how it made my list of runners-up for 2022 posted yesterday. I have a feeling it's a movie I will watch a dozen more times and it very well might continue rising in my estimation -- we'll see. When I re-do my list ten years from now I'll probably think myself a fool for under-valuing it. We'll see.
