    I'm surprised none linked to this piece by Scorsese expanding on his Marvel comments.

    Whether you agree with him or not, it's such a privilege to have a guy like Marty alive and so outspoken about the way he views his favorite medium.

    Well honestly there is no left wing party in this country, first off. The GOP has gone far right wing and the Dems are center right. You do know the basis for the ACA came from Mitt Romney, and GOP think tanks, right? Also Obama's immigration and foreign policy was about as left wing as George W. Bush. It's funny to see Republicans attack him when he bailed out Wall Street with no strings attached.

    Because he’s black, that’s why.

    From an outsider's perspective, Democrats and Republicans have always looked like two sides of the same coin, specially where foreign policies are concerned.

    I've been scrolling through past posts here about Satantango because I'm curious about the consensus on it here, and the 4K restoration of it is coming to my arthouse theater next weekend, so I'm thinking about going. Bela Tarr's filmmaking style is something I've been interested in seeing for a while because slow, meditative films fascinate me as a filmmaker. The only things keeping me from committing otherwise are the daunting 7 1/2 hour run time, depressing story and philosophical ideas that I worry could go over my head. So I ask this of you, my fellow Match-Cutters: knowing my film tastes, would I be into Satantango?

    Then again, I see clips like this and think "Holy shit, this looks like an incredible, immersive theatrical experience":

    Last Five Films I've Seen (Out of 5)

    I Lost My Body (Clapin, 2019) 4
    Frozen 2 (Buck/Lee, 2019) 3
    Honey Boy (Har'el, 2019) 4.5
    Knives Out (Johnson, 2019) 4.5
    1917 (Mendes, 2019) 4.5
    Krisha (Shults, 2015) 4
    Uncut Gems (Safdies, 2019) TBA Wednesday

    It's pretty wonderful, though obviously not as great as the novel. My only minor issue with the film is that the last half hour of the film really drags.
    Just because...
    Touch Me Not (Adina Pintilie, 2018) warm
    Madame Hyde (Serge Bozon, 2017) mild
    O Fantasma (Joćo Pedro Rodrigues, 2000) warm

    I would go because this kind of event doesn't happen very often. It's also the sorta thing you'll remember for decades to come. It'll become something you will talk about.

    (And if you don't like it, just leave at the intermission! That'll be part of your story too.)

    Definition of Gen X is early 80s. I qualify,

    Plus they never would have made those pepsi generation x commercials advertising directly to me in the 90s.
    I definitely qualify. Bah... took this from the WSJ and looks like it's layered.

    I was born in 1986 so I don't think I'm Gen X. Honestly I had to Google it.

    Oh yeah both suck on foreign policy. At times the Dems are less likely to go for big wars these days but that is only because of Iraq. I give it 10 years or less before the US does something like invading Iran.

    I'd like to add that I'm PEAK GEN-X in a way.

    How has no one called out the "Greatest Generation" for being a bunch of elitists?

    Also they survived the great depression right before that.
