And my computer hard crashed 😿Guess that's the end of the Twitch Watch Party experiment tonight as I don't want to watch the first ten minutes a third time.
I also just learned that Watch Party directly on Prime Video does have video controls. Wonder why Twitch version doesn't get it?
Oh snap, 49 minutes in (yes, a very slow 49 minutes with distractions) and the film finally reminds me why it was in my Amazon watch list for so long. I forgot it was based on a Stanislaw Lem work and that's why I watch listed it in the first place.
Wikipedia shows me that the French cover/poster is so much better than the American one that Amazon uses. I might have watched it years ago instead of forgetting why it was in my watchlist.
Though 49 minutes was a rough slog to get here.
The Congress was a fine movie. Probably a bad idea for a movie to watch in 2020 for I forgot there was post-apocalypse inside it reasons. (More overt than Synecdoche, certainly.) Pacing issues were probably my biggest problem with it (and their relation to breaks and distractions).
An interesting adaptation of a book nearly impossible to adapt. An almost silly movie by a director with a filmography of films that are full of depressing topics.
