    Becoming Bond

    August 32nd on Earth


    It is primarily the acting chemistry that sells the slight, somewhat clichéd narrative of August 32nd on Earth; nevertheless, it's an encouraging debut for Villeneuve, whose skill as a writer and director is on full display.

    Listed on directed by Denis Villeneuve.

  • Nightcrawler



    Voyeuristic pleasures abound in first-time writer/director Dan Gilroy's sleek and stylish Nightcrawler, a darkly comedic rags to riches story centered around a sociopathic opportunist who is nothing short of mesmerizing.

    The tantalizing and divisive Eyes Wide Shut commits an utterly electrifying 20 minutes to film, but surrounds it with 2+ hours of repetitive, drawn out dialogue—it strangely both encourages and discourages repeat viewings.

    Listed on directed by Stanley Kubrick.
