The second secret screening.

Don't really know why this was a secret screening. Actually I don't really know why Dolemite was either, but whatever.

I'm on record for really liking The VVVVITCH. This I thought was just ok. The trailer is pretty great, Willem Dafoe is pretty great ("shouldn't a spilled yer BEANS"), Robert Pattinson has some memorable lines ("goddamn FARTS!"). It's suitably dreary and claustrophobic and goes to all the places the trailer makes you think it goes, but it doesn't quite live up to the promise of the trailer. I don't know if I wanted it to be not as weird or way weirder or what... but for some reason it felt flat to me. Not sure why, but the further I get from it the less memorable it is.

Maybe it's just typical sophomore slump type stuff? I dunno. Willem Dafoe was really great.
