    Zola’s just fucking awesome.

    Love the look on Shindô’s work thus far. Stark, creative imagery.

  • The Green Knight

    The Green Knight

    Love David Lowery as a filmmaker, and I liked this film a lot. Need to see it again though. More to unpack than I was expecting. Foolish me.

  • Southland Tales

    Southland Tales

    Huge fucking balls on Richard Kelly for putting his career on the line for this completely wild, bombastic film. It’s not a finished film obviously, but maybe that’s also the storyteller’s job to cut out the unnecessaries, and in this case, that concept seemed to be lost on Mr. Kelly. It’s both good and bad. With that said, it’s significance is not lost, and I had a good time watching it. I’m just left wondering what else Richard Kelly could have offered, had he not put all his eggs in this creative clusterfuck. Maybe it’s not too late for a comeback.

    Old

    It dawned on me that Shyamalan fans and Weezer fans have some commonality: stick with ‘em through thick and thin, but it’s certainly not always a pretty ride. If The Sixth Sense, and Unbreakable are his Blue, and Pinkerton, than Old is his, idk, Black album or some shit.

  • Possessor

    Possessor

    The more I watch it, the more I’m irritated by it. It’s got some really great, intriguing ideas, and for the most part it’s capitalized on, but my god, the woozy “trippy” stylistic approach gets pretty intrusive, annoying even. The ending ties the whole thing up really well (in a fucked up way), and it’s got some striking sequences, no doubt, yet I can’t help but sense a lack of overall depth to the edgy world Brandon Cronenberg’s created.

  • No Sudden Move

    No Sudden Move

    ★★★

    Would call it my favorite Soderbergh film since Logan Lucky. It’s old fashioned, and specific to another era of cinema. Though I love much of it, it generally falls victim to Soderbergh’s common pitfall as of late; it’s fleeting. It doesn’t help that he totally gets in the way of the story with his fisheye wankery.

  • Pig

    Pig

    Pig is a great one to see without knowing anything about it. You see the poster, you think you know what to expect, and honestly, the surprise that comes with not knowing is genuinely exciting, as when this film reveals its true colors, it becomes one of the most satisfying vehicles for Cage in this act of his career. The film certainly boasts more personality when it comes to the writing/storytelling than it does in visual presentation, but that’s a bit beside the point.  Curious to see where this fellow goes next.

  • Shiva Baby

    Shiva Baby

    Really just overflowing with character and personality. Both hilariously and anxiously packs an explosive, clearly defined punch in 77-minutes. Absolutely killer debut!

  • Donny's Bar Mitzvah

    Donny's Bar Mitzvah

    A surprising, underground comedic gem, full of ridiculous gags. Handles it’s more emotionally serious moments like the average sitcom, but otherwise it’s worth checking out.

  • Werewolves of the Third Reich

    Werewolves of the Third Reich

    I’ve seen this twice. Why have I seen this twice?

  • I Saw the Devil

    I Saw the Devil

    ★★★★½

    Sickeningly violent and savage, and yet so well-structured and written and performed. A vicious and pure examination of revenge.
