    Bad Day at Black Rock

    ★★★★★

    After being slightly disappointed by John Sturges' Gunfight at the O.K. Corral and The Great Escape, I went into 1955's Bad Day at Black Rock with simulatenous hesitation and excitement. Well...it luckily delivered and delivered amazingly well! A minimalistic western mystery set in one town. Intense with pressure building every second.

    Wuthering Heights

    ★★★

    Set to leave Netflix; I caught 2011's Wuthering Heights before its departure from the streaming site. Based on the novel by Emily Brontë, Andrea Arnold's adaptation is one of numerous others and while I may have not read the original book just yet, I did find this film to be a good one. It's raw and I love how brutal it felt; not in its story but more so for its grittiness and realism. Moreover, the cinematography took me positively…
