    Sorcerer

    ★★★★★

    When I was younger I watched both Wages of Fear and Sorcerer pretty close together. I came away with the simple, and I think very common understanding, that Sorcerer was "way better." Watching it again, I actually think both films are amazing. It's no longer clear to me which one I like more.

    With Wages, I don't really care for the opening hour. It really does set the tone for why these men could do such a desperate act, as…

    Voyage of Time: Life's Journey

    ★★★★★

    If there was ever a film that was primed for the criterion collection to release it it's this film. Created in 2016 and still completely unavailable in the United States this movie is begging for a quality release. The criterion collection has already released several of Terrence Malick's other great films, however this film doesn't stand a chance of being released by any other studio. This film is a visual spectacular from beginning to end nearly every single frame of…

    Loophole

    ★★★★

    What a refreshingly good film. Loophole follows a highly skilled bank robber, played by Albert Finney. He's a meticulous planner and a charismatic leader. He puts together a large team to knock of one of the biggest banks in London. Martin Sheen plays a architect that finds out he's out of job with massive amounts of debt, two kids in private school and a mansion with a mansion sized mortgage to deal with. In steps Albert with a plan to…

    ★★½

    I've heard that a lot of people are hating this movie. I haven't dug into the criticism people are having because I like to form my own opinion first. My suspicion is that people are annoyed by the weak love story, which the film could have down without. Or people didn't like the villain, which would make total sense because the villain in this movie is so generic. It was embarrassing to see the Taika Waititi play this villain. I'm…

    I want to write a review for this movie however, like with most Denis films, I feel like I need to watch it again first. So, I'm gonna go back to the theater to watch this again. While I know I can watch it on HBO, I refuse to. Denis wanted this film to be release only in theater, and I'm going to honor his wishes. Plus I think it's bullshit that WB made this dumb ass deal in the…

  • The Killer

    The Killer

    ★★★★★

    Quite possibly John Woo's best film. The Killer is a amazing action romance film, with fantastic homages to Scorsese, Truffaut, Peckinpah, and even musicals in general. Having just finished the very successful A Better Tomorrow series, was given unprecedented freedom to do whatever he wanted with his next picture. Living up to the auteur theory, Woo wrote, directed, and edited this film perusing a vision that his cast and crew didn't understand but he did.

    The Killer stars Chow Yun-Fat…
