    Hadn’t heard of this until trailer was shown in front of long shot but I’m intrigued. Looks like Jesse is back to doing what he does best.

    Really hope this keeps playing for another week or two. I've already used up my A-List reservations for the week on Tarantino.

    Really loved this. Movie was really sure of itself and wasted no shot or line. Everything came together so neatly.
     
  9. I thought this was pretty neat thematically. If I'm interpreting it correctly, it's like, anti toxic male masculinity? Also, I've taken karate, but you don't need that experience to know that obviously a lot of Sensei's teachings is wrong haha

    Can’t believe there hasn’t been more hype over this, hilarious and genuinely tense. Reminded me of Lanthimos on a way, it was offbeat but not distractingly so. Easily a favorite of the year.
