    Brick

    ★★★★½

    Somehow even more compelling on rewatch, it’s less humorous and more melancholic this time around, I’ve come to embrace the film noir dialogue to the point where I feel my destiny is within the genre (going to the library and renting young adult mystery novels as a kid paid off). Brick is still Rian Johnson’s masterpiece, his sensibilities works ridiculously well with a low budget and high school setting, it’s what I wish Wes Anderson was still doing (he’s made…

    Glad to report it more than holds up, though you needn’t here that from me, a Kubrick film not managing to hold your attention prisoner upon rewatch would be shocking (his “worst” being Spartacus which is still a moving epic).

It’s pure demented chaos, it’s sick and twisted, and its dialogue…

Let’s get the only positive…

    Elevator to the Gallows

    ★★★★½

    This was a debut? Okay… oh he was 24 when he made it? Wow um… got it I’ll just vanish…
    Louis Malle’s Elevator to the Gallows manages to be a riveting crime thriller without any in-your-face violence or edge-of-your-seat chase scenes. I love those kinds of movies, but it’s pretty special to see a filmmaker so young being able to tell an airport novel type of story in such an innovative way. Malle adapted this story, after his typical 24 year…
