    The Passion of Joan of Arc

    ★★★★★

    If it wasn't for Kubrick's existence, this would be the greatest movie I have ever seen. There is no other movie quite like it. The Passion of Joan of Arc is the ultimate transcendent piece of filmmaking. It is amazing on all accounts and houses one of (if not) the greatest performance ever put to screen. The pain and faith you can see in her eyes simultaneously is the most beautiful and hypnotizing thing in cinematic history. Paired with the…

    Sunrise: A Song of Two Humans

    ★★★★★

    This is one of the greatest movies of all time, and I don't mean that in a 1001 movies type of way. No, I mean that it should be contending for the number one spot in everybody's list.

    If you watch this movie and compare it to today's standards you're going to think it is too simple a story and whatever happens is way to unrealistic. But there is something you need to understand when watching silent films, especially the…

    Schindler's List

    ★★★★

    The best thing about Schindler's List is that the reality on which it is based is the worst. It is a great film to introduce children in schools to the horrible history of the world, but it is too Hollywood for my taste. There is some sort of misuse of the horror. When Fiennes can't help himself but to shoot a man for supposedly working to slow, and his gun jams, it has almost a comedic effect. The tiny giggle…

    Way Down East

    ★★★★½

    I guess there are scenes that could have been trimmed a bit, but there are basically no meaningless scenes in the entire film. Every setting, character or event has a purpose however big or small it may be. This film already plays out like a modern film. Griffith was so ahead of his time and this film perfectly showcases this. We can jump from one event to the next and back without ever getting lost. We know every character, we…

  • Three Outlaw Samurai

    Three Outlaw Samurai

    ★★★½

    I don't understand why samurai hasn't become an official standalone genre. It has set itself apart time and time again, as much as the western did. This is just another one to be added to the pile of great samurai flicks. When they're done right, they're just the shit. I especially love my samurai in black and white, because for some weird reason they feel more real. I guess it's more like a window into the past than a play.…
