    Shadows

    ★★★½

    Pretty raw look at race relations at the time. The jazzy score fits like a glove. Shadows isn't perfect by any means. The rocky flow to it lost me here and there.

    Overall though it's a solid debut from Cassavetes.

  • Mouchette

    Mouchette

    ★★★★½

    Bleak if not downright miserable.

    Mouchette's but a glimpse into how some can't escape the cruel hand they've been dealt in life, how they're viewed and treated by society around them.

  • Climax

    Climax

    ½

    Dull and downright revolting.

    For the most of this movie, nothing happens. Just dancing, one dimensional characters talking about sex, sex, sex. Then when things pick up, it all becomes a quick, edgy mess of shock value.

    I hate myself for watching this.

  • Da 5 Bloods

    Da 5 Bloods

    ★★★★½

    Da 5 Bloods was better than I thought.

    Four Vietnam vets looking for their fallen brother's remains. The close friendships, the action, Blanchard's score all made for quite a good film.

    This may just be Lee's best looking film too.
