    Ferrari

    ★★

    plays like a feature-length version of a “funny family guy italian jokes” compilation, only with mann’s usual macho bullshit worldview attached and spread especially thin this time around. destined to be overrated and overhyped by the type of person who thinks claiming miami vice is a modern masterpiece is a unique or interesting opinion to have.

  • Silent Night

    Silent Night

    ★★★½

    "John Woo’s Silent Night is, in its content and form, about fulfilling a set goal through limited means. In the case of the former, this ethos is personified by Brian Godluck (Joel Kinnaman), who tries to make due with whatever he can get his hands on in order to seek bloody retribution for the death of his son amid gang crossfire. The latter, meanwhile, is rendered through the film’s near-total absence of dialogue, with Woo relying on the power of his images to convey what the spoken word is usually tasked with in commercial cinema."
