list lists list

the problem with year end movie lists is that you don't get to see every movie in the world that came out this year. and anticipating liking movies is a disingenuous act of list making treason. but its tempting. what if i had gotten to see apichatpong weerasethekul's cemetery of splendor in time? or veerhoven's elle? or toni erdmann?  it just can't always be that way. and making a year end best of list in mid or late january carries its own problems.  one movie i'm really excited to see is playing at space on january 2nd. its called evolution, and is the kind of surrealist, slow-burn, art-horror whats-it movie i usually love.  but its dec 31 and im just doing it now.  but first, here's a trailer for evolution- come out jan 2 to space gallery at 7pm to see it!
