Looking forward to this one… I thought I read there were some walkouts or people VERY upset at the subject matter. Should be a fun time!

Glazer’s done a short film or two in the meantime.

Yeah I for sure won't based on the subject matter. Not sure why anyone would really. But such is life.

Saw this last week, it was a unique and at times tough watch, in particular due to the sound design. Pretty sure this is looking at a Best Picture nomination, and definitely for Sound and International Feature.

Do people really go into movies without knowing anything at all about them? I don't want to be spoiled but I like to have a vague idea what it's about. I've seen enough photos and footage of Auschwitz to last a lifetime and would never go near a movie about it.

Also I saw Under the Skin in the cinema and would avoid the movie just based on that.

I am, with trepidation, really looking forward to seeing this after the reviews I have heard on a few podcasts. I know, going in, this is not an entertaining movie, but a study of humans and humanity (or lack thereof). I know I am not going to come out happy, but this is about leaning into discomfort and studying the dark recesses and rough edges of people. I haven't seen the trailer and am not going to watch it before seeing the movie.

I'm going to go out on a limb and say to DeFan, this isn't about Auschwitz (although that is the backdrop).

I hadn't seen this thread before, so this is the first time I have seen that poster and . . . holy shit. I don't know if it speaks to others, but it says volumes to me.

When does this get a wide release?

Anyone else see this yet? My wife thought it was great; I thought it was a little too "arthouse" and slow but it was still powerful. I am surprised this is up for best picture, though.

I was absolutely gobsmacked by this one. Along with Killers of the Flower Moon, I can't think of two more lucid expressions of the banality of evil and man's capacity to look the other way. Sandra Huller almost single handedly carries Anatomy of a Fall on her shoulders, but this might be the more memorable role for me. She's incredible. I don't even want to say anything more in the hopes that people will discover it for themselves. I realize the subject matter will keep many away, and it's certainly not "fun', but I think it's pretty special. One of the best of the year for sure.

Meanwhile, on its 20 local screens, AMC is giving me . . . [checks app]

Madame Web, One Love, Argylle, 3 episodes of season 4 of some Jesus tv show, The Beekeeper, a Valentines Day encore of Anyone But You (yes, it says it is a Valentines day encore), Lisa Frankenstein, Wonka, Mean Girls, Migration, The Boys in the Boat, Drive-Way Dolls, Demon Slayer cartoons, and Ordinary Angels.

Fuck you AMC. The same fucking drivel for 8 weeks now.

Magnificent. And awful. Best movie of 2023 (that I've seen thus far). Glazer made a masterpiece.

This looked uninteresting based on the trailer, but wow, I was glued to the screen for all 98 minutes.

Huller is so good in this. It’s a PG-13 and the way the story is presented here is terrific.

You don’t really see much bad stuff, you hear it instead. Chilling at times. A must-see if you love cinema.

Same, godsmacked too. I found it grotesque the way that family were going about their daily business living a quiet and dream life literally within feet from what they knew was going on. And could see constantly in the air. Walking around their beautiful garden smelling flowers, frolicking in the pool, having nice meals, and trying on clothes given to them of people being slaughtered. It was sickening.
