    I was literally just saying the other day that I feel pretty in touch with what my favorite directors are doing, but admitted to having no idea what Alfonso Curaon was up to.

    I am here for this for sure.

    Good to see him go back to his heritage. It will likely be an important film of the year.

    Surprised at the lack of Lubezki. Still looks pretty though.

    I feel like Cuaron always gets overlooked in mentions of greatest living directors but like...has he made a bad movie?

    I’ll fight for Azkaban but yeah, Gravity was pretty disappointing. Fucking love Children of Men though and I’ll see anything he makes because of it.

    What the fuck. Azkaban is the best Potter movie. gravity is a technical masterpiece. GTFO of here.

    azkaban being the best harry potter movie, which i agree with, doesn’t mean it isn’t a bad movie.

    i could care less about gravity being a “technical masterpiece.” there are plenty of other “technical masterpieces” out there that are still better movies. and he’s proven he does his best work in smaller films.

    Gravity is a good film, but not near his best work. I never had a reason to watch the Harry Potter film.

    Gravity and Azkaban are both great imo. I haven't seen Great Expectations though and don't have much reason to.

    I heard this is getting some sort of limited theatrical release? I’ve heard from a friend that works at a local cinema that it’s coming back to Toronto at least. If you get the chance, see it at the cinema. The sound design alone is astonishing.

    Just found out that this is playing at the Indiana University cinema in a few weeks, very excited to get to see it in a theater.

    Definitely see this in a theater with great sound, if possible. The sound editing and cinematography was gorgeous. The acting is great too.

    The movie as a whole I’m still debating. I didn’t feel that connected to the family and main character as I had hoped. But I know others that openly sobbed throughout it. It kind of has a “Boyhood” where admire so much about it, but still felt like there was an emotional barrier that kept me from loving it.
