    Deborah Unger serves looks. L-O-O-K-S. 

    I think this is a film that warms up the older one gets. At least that’s my experience. It’s not so much an understanding of the characters, but being more clued in to what Cronenberg is doing. There’s the “out there,” controversial cinema that appeals to youth sensibilities and, perhaps maybe, wears off the older one gets. For me, this wasn’t that. Crash is the opposite. A controversial piece of “out there” cinema that only gets…

    Yeah I'm a big fan of Ritchie's work, but this movie doesn't need any defending. It is good, solid genre filmmaking. Interestingly reminiscent of a South Korean revenge movie with all the intricate and elaborate means to an end, and pulled off stylishly because GR is still in his wheelhouse here, just darker. And Statham is at his best.

    Humphrey Bogart… Cage finishes the movie, like ten full minutes, pretending to be Humphrey Bogart, full on voice and everything. And really, by this point in this bugnuts movie, I’m just like, yeah sure, of course, of course he is - and you know it works.

    A really good film. A really singular film. Appropriately light, full of humanity and never dishonest. A fun cast of characters that share similar dynamics with a cast in something like CLERKS. The cinematography can’t help but to focus on the 80s fashion which is bright & bold and full of pastels & comfortable cottons making for a very rich, plush look. Last disc of the Criterion July sale!

    I love a film where EVERY word spoken matters. In The Green Knight, it matters to the (wonderfully adapted) story and it matters to character - all of them. Not a wasted moment to find. Dev Patel is very good and Alicia Vikander returns to screen glory with all her might. Her role is not titular, but like the QUEEN she is, owns the film's best scene(s), until, arguably, that virtuoso ending.

    David Lowery has made a masterpiece. After making…

    Schrader's restrained formalism (and selection of subject matter that allows this) cannot help but to burst out into an exploding confetti cannon and that's why I love him. Outstanding looking film, duhhh.
