You Were Never Really Here

Spoilers! Joaquin Phoenix stars in an incredible movie about an unstable veteran with a tendency for violence and a twisted moral compass, sadly this isn't that movie. You Were Never Really Here is strangely similar in plot to two movies, Taxi Driver and The Master, the movie I reference just a moment ago. What is... Continue Reading →

Polytechnique

Spoilers Denis Villeneuve is quickly becoming one of my favorite directors, with Blade Runner 2049 being my favorite film of 2017 as well as really enjoying Arrival the year prior. I figured I should watch one of his earlier feature films, and Polytechnique was the easiest to watch. A semi-fictional, dramatized retelling of the Montreal... Continue Reading →

What We Do in the Shadows

I'm gonna keep this one short because there isn't really a lot to analyse or criticize about this movie. What We Do in the Shadows is the hilarious mock-umentary by Jemaine Clement of Flight of the Concords fame and his long time friend Taiki Waititi who recently-ish directed Thor: Ragnarok and Hunt for the Wilderpeople....

Grey Gardens documents a summer that Albert Maysles, and his brother David, spent with two women living in their disgusting, dilapidated mansion.

Also known as Drunken Master II, this Jackie Chan martial arts spectacle film is exciting, beautifully choreographed and filmed, but drags when the story tries to becomes the center of attention. Drunken Master II is lauded as one of Jackie Chan's best movies, and its easy to see why. With all the impressive, sometimes dangerous... Continue Reading →

SPOILERS Skip to the end for a quick spoiler free recommendation After finishing Woody Allen's Manhattan I immediately realized, I had been deftly fooled by every character, and I loved it! This movie is very good at stringing you along, just as many of the characters are strung along by one another throughout the film.... Continue Reading →

Baraka

Preah Khan Temple, Angkor, Cambodia Tokyo, Japan Ganges River, India Caipo Village, Para, Brazil Rio De Janero, Brazil I needed to start this review with just a few stills from the movie. I think they are enough of an endorsement on their own, of this films quality and beauty, to make someone want to watch... Continue Reading →

Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf?

SPOILERS! I greatly enjoyed the first hour of this movie, although I feel as it got more confrontational the coherence, and subsequently my enjoyment, significantly suffered. I know this movie is and was originally a play and its pretty obvious just based on how the pacing of the film works. I don't really feel like... Continue Reading →
