    David Gordon Green directed "The Sitter," "Your Highness" and "Pineapple Express."

    Now before you jump to conclusions about this man's talent let me say that before his last three movies he was probably the most potent young filmmaker in America. But he began his career through the tail end of the American Independent movement, or you could say the American New Wave part deux. So right as he was starting to establish himself in the independent world, that world, for…

    Mad Max: Fury Road

    ★★★★★

    Max hangs onto the only tree we see in the film, as a huge piece of man made machinery rips it out of the earth.

    I find it strange that this movie is so popular. I see 'bros' quoting it and they always have this next to Goodfellas and The Sopranos and Entourage in their collection of movies. I think a lot of people like it for the wrong reasons. They like the violence and the guns and DENIRO. But for me this is the quintessential art house film: ambiguous in it's meaning, a meandering story with no plot in sight, a protagonist that has…
