    Two-Lane Blacktop

    ★★★★★

    I have recently been listening to James Taylor's music and it turns out that he is the lead in this film so I thought I just had to check it out.

    It also turns out, that like his music, this film is awesome too.

    Two-Lane Blacktop is a film about a road trip and cross country race, yet it goes beyond the pavement, delving into some deep themes about America and the uncertainty and impermanence of street life.

    Taylor's cold…

    Paris, Texas

    ★★★★★

    Paris, Texas burns slow, but cuts so deep.

    A truly moving film packed with emotion in almost every single scene, Paris, Texas is an immensely deep look at love, loss, and the inner strength required to move on.

    Harry Dean Stanton gives his career best performance as a broken and battered man trying to reconnect, rediscover, and ultimately open up about his life.

    Even the title itself speaks volumes about life, showing that an idealistic life may never be possible in a declining and less than advertised America.

    Such a beautiful film with wonderful cinematography, and a truly unparalleled emotional journey.

    Imagine you’re still directing and starring in movies at 91 years old.

    Now imagine you’re also Clint Eastwood.

    Pretty cool, isn’t it?

    ★★★★

    As a lover of music and record store culture, saying Empire Records is up my alley may still be an understatement.

    This film is just full of great tunes, great characters, and while the plot is kind of goofy, saving the record store from corporate America is something I can get behind wholeheartedly.

    I freaking loved the “Romeo and Juliet” by Dire Straits incorporation as it is an all time favorite of mine and the song “Sugarhigh” helps cap off the…

    "I am alone, I am not lonely"

    Heat serves not only as a film, but as the cinematic ballad of broken men.

    Michael Mann is truly unbeatable in the crime genre as Heat is easily the greatest large scale crime drama and one of the best action films of all time.

    Every single character within the film is representative of the tragic elements that follow uber masculinity, and while these elements are incorporated perfectly, the only flaw of the film…

    ★★★★½

    Isn't Hollywood just great?

    Well aren't I just a massive idiot for thinking I could out smart David Lynch. For the first two thirds of the film I thought I had the whole thing down for the most part, but then came the third act and boy was I thrown for a loop.

    David Lynch truly is the master of confusion, but I think I may have figured this one out.

    First of all Naomi Watts gives an absolutely stellar…
