Glasgow, winter 1973, two teenagers shot dead, police force silenced by the wealthy, a young detective dares to investigate. BLOODY JANUARY by Alan Parks, a Scottish-noir crime-procedural: really tight writing, gripping and violent, dark and satisfying. I flew through it quickly.

LOVE, SIMON and MY FRIEND DAHMER: two recent gay-themed high-school movies, one ends on a Ferris Wheel with two boys kissing while friends cheer below; the other ends with the murder of a hitchhiker by a murderous teen. One feels like liberal fantasy. One feels like awful truth.

Randomly watched Bob Clark's DEATHDREAM, also known as DEAD OF NIGHT. Fascinating low-budget mid-70s horror about a young soldier back from Vietnam (yes, undead and a vampire) dealing with his family and having a murderous breakdown. A prime piece of 1974 horror. Kind of awesome.

10 year-old interview where I said Andrea Arnold and Floria Sigismondi made my fav movies that year--where were other female filmmakers? Drunkenly went on dumb "provocative" rant which I've dismantled many times on the BEE podcast with Karyn Kusama, Rose McGowan, IIIeana Douglas.

ESCAPES: fascinating impressionistic doc about the actor Hampton Fancher who ended up writing the original script for BLADE RUNNER. Directed by Michael Almereyda and executive produced by Wes Anderson. Cameos: Teri Garr, Sue Lyon, Barbara Hershey. A curio but highly recommended.

The DGA Nominations: GET OUT, LADY BIRD and THE SHAPE OF WATER are actually better directed movies than Paul Thomas Anderson's PHANTOM THREAD?!? Or is ideology trumping aesthetics? I hope not.

This kind of ideology is another example of how people don't care about movies or art anymore. Movies should only be made by a PC democracy! It will hopefully not take years for a generation to rid itself of this kind of mindless, regressive, identity politics groupthink. Resist.
