In The Shadow Of The Moon (2019)
This serial killer mystery is not enormously challenging. A woman kills people in 1988. This was not feasible. This was absurd and pointless. Michael C. Hall features. There are more murders in 1997. 1988 is not remembered warmly. There are troubling acts and no positive features. There are life threatening experiences and a dubious narrative and an existential crisis.
A man rants about time travel and a super moon. The cop doesn't listen. The cop has complacency and faces negative impacts. The cop has wilful ignorance. This was not ever intensifying. It is now 2006 and the now ex-cop has turned into a Unabomber looking lives in his car nutter. He has to face some consequences.
The ex-cop reads about the moon and rants about time travel and a milita. Someone else is now raising the ex-cop's ignored daughter. This was ineffective.
“We have no idea what it is.”
“You make the worst pancakes.”
“I've seen how that turns out for you.”
“Just wasn't dead yet.”
“Sad to watch.”
Ready Or Not (2019)
Adam Brody, Henry Czerny and Andie McDowall star in this tale of a bride who learns too late that her new in-laws are satan worshipping nutjobs. This is okay grand guignol done with deadly serious nihilistic dread, ponderous tones and the odd comedic touch.
This was supposed to be the film of 1977. Instead it was destroyed by 'Star Wars'. This was directed by William Fredkin and it stars Roy Scheider. This flopped due to a total lack of interest. Fredklin is convinved of his own greatness as an auteur. This film is not just slow it is glacial slow. It is full of unrelenting punishment, unavoidable fate and no palpable sense of unease. This was not elegiac.
