    It's A24, and I think they have an agreement with Amazon Prime - a lot of their stuff is on there.

    I haven't actually seen it, either the original or the remake. But I suspect so. Just a bit unsettling and quite weird.

    Midsommar. Whole lotta wtf. Didn't dislike it, didn't love it either. Had me intrigued the whole time though. Had my partner and I talking about it after for a while which is always good.

    There's a blue spark on Reddit for $550. I can help with shipping it to you if you're outside of the US which you presumably are.

    Nice. I’d personally prefer a rounder toe but that’s just me. Like loins says, perfectly good pair of black Derby’s.

    Finally, someone who agrees with me!

    Yes, exactly! As a child of a pretty rough separation I found the entire thing totally unrealistic. Which was odd considering the film was praised for how 'real' and 'relatable' it felt. I thought Adam Driver was good. I like him. But didn't enjoy the film. In Noah Baumbach's defense, it's apparently loosely based on his experience of his separation from Jennifer Jason Leigh, so the Hollywood aspect makes some sense.

    That is absolutely understandable. I felt the same way about Marriage Story. Expected big things and whilst well acted, I just felt a bit 'meh' after watching it.

    Agree Re freshness. The Safdie's craft scenes in ways that I've not seen before - the same goes for the scenes in Good Time. Just so frantic, chaotic and panic inducing.

    Also agree Re Joker. Was okay. Didn't love it.

    That's fair enough. I really don't feel that I enjoyed it due to hype. I just really enjoyed it and genuinely did care about Howard as a character. I also really, really enjoyed previous Safdie Brother films. Different strokes for different folks.

    I do not have a suggestion for you but that’s great.
