I had a good time, but I didn't fall head over heels for it.
Surprised you liked this one. Didn't seem like your kind of thing. Glad to hear you enjoyed it.
Anyway, I watched Chungking Express for the first time, which I loved. Some of the imagery in that movie... wow. Also loved the bit at the end when one of the workers was like, "Cop No. 633 is a smooth operator!" In context, it was a great little moment.
I also watched Fincher's The Game, which I hadn't seen in probably a decade. It's pretty batshit, but very enjoyable and extremely well-crafted.
