I don’t think I ever saw a picture of Jason Reitman before. For a minute I really thought it was a picture of Jason Lee.

For films with titles that start with the letter "i", you need to put a space between the "[" and the "I", otherwise everything will show up in italics, and the English title won't display, as in your original post (I've fixed it here in my quoting of your post).

:clap:
I know. It's on autopost, I was asleep at 5 am.

Ever been on TikTok for more than 10 minutes? It's like Blair Witch Project on crack ..

The Witch & Hereditary were almost saving the horror genre on their own. A24 has become my biggest positive surprise of the 2010s.

I have heard that it's different. That actually makes me even more excited.

Wait, is this Claire Denis' US Go Home but set in Kaliningrad and US and France replaced with Lithuania and Russia? Holy shit, why was this in my IMDB watchlist but I've never seen it?

Edit: Wait, the actress also worked with Denis? This is getting weirder and weirder.
