Got a hold of the screenplay for this last year. Didn't read it cause I didn't want to be spoiled, but noticed it's full of weird pictures and ciphers and stuff. Lookin' forward to this...

It's getting trashed at Cannes and looks like a bad bro intellectual version of Inherent Vice
And I feel like this year is really about, just the year of realizing stuff.

Really? The Cannes reviews I've seen have been largely positive.

I assumed there was, but I searched for one but didn't see it...then I dug deeper...and I started noticing all kinds of hidden messages everywhere I looked...

In other words, it's Inherent Vice?

I take very little stock in Jeff Wells' opinions but I wish he had his own thread. Just want to clarify that this was trashed by a number of outlets and it looks bad.

this looks like one of those painfully stilted, former-film-school-kid projects that dupes people who don't watch a lot of movies into mistaking its flashy, sophomoric flourishes for depth. every time I see a trailer for it I can almost hear vague acquaintances telling me that I should "definitely check it out" because I'm "really into film stuff"

like you know when tom scharpling complains about those people in movie theaters who force "knowing laughs" after the little references they catch just to broadcast the fact that they're in on the joke? this movie looks like it has all the trappings of being far more interested in satisfying those people.

I guess sometimes you just read a bunch of pynchon and decide to make a movie about the hollywood zeitgeist starring one of the worst actors around!
