    welp, another week where I was supposed to watch The Best Years of Our Lives (1946), but fuck that -- it sounds like a downer and its long. So instead, I decided to rewatch Kill Bill: The Whole Bloody Affair. Its all as one movie, there's an animated sequence for O-Ren Ishii, the Crazy 88 fight is in color, and some other extras. It supposedly matches Tarantino's own cut he shows at the New Bev.

    Anyway, its awesome and the only way to get it is piracy. Look for MiLKMAN in the rls name -- that's the right one.

    Woke up to really good news that two Kira Muratova films are coming to the Criterion Collection in August: Brief Encounters and The Long Farewell, which is really good news because those were two films that were previously unavailable in the U.S. except maybe on a shitty Amazon DVD. She's a Ukrainian filmmaker and those are hard to come by in the west.

    I've been exploring a lot of films from soviet satellite states in general lately, with one being the great film Revenge from Yermek Shinarbayev, which is about a boy that has to spend his life avenging a sister that was murdered before he was ever born. It's also really interesting as a historical fiction film because it explores the little known migration of Koreans to Russian territories for work. Also, The Needle directed by Rashid Nugmanov which is like a more action oriented Requiem for a Dream with Soviet Rock in place of the techno. Really good stuff!!

      Simply never got round to it. It's never been that big of a deal to post it manually. 🤷
