    I'm Thinking of Ending Things

    ★★★★★

    If our fantasies, mundane or extraordinary as they may be, were personified and brought to life... wouldn't they find us boring? Wouldn't they be aching to get up and leave, free from the constraints of our modest minds?

I'd love to have been at the pitch meeting, just so I could properly assimilate what the hell they were thinking when they greenlit this.

    The result is one of the…

    Lawrence of Arabia

    ★★½

    Directed with such mastery of the craft that it continues to inspire and be a benchmark sixty years later. The cinematography feels as lively as ever thanks to the latest 4K master, and it's a beauty to behold. It's understandable why this is called one of the greatest films of all-time, and why that's not an overstatement. That being said, some of us are going to sit through four hours of this while constantly checking how much there is still…
