    For a thrilling illustration of how action cinema has progressed, watch the bridge scene in Sorcerer followed by the sequence in F9 where Dominic Toretto uses a snapped bridge cable to swing his car across a gorge. Sorcery!

    Incredibly silly, vulgar, macabre farce. Have not seen a great number of HK comedies so not quite sure if this one is particularly outlandish. Pleasantly surprised to find that this was a loose CHARADE remake. DOUBLES certainly doesn't double the laughs or suspense of that film, but it certainly cranks up the shameless thirsting and that's not nothing!

    With A FISHY STORY being a bit of A BREAKFAST AT TIFFANY'S riff if there are any other Hepburn inspired Maggie Cheung flicks? Time is now for a Love Among Thieves remake!

    I'm not a complicated person. I didn't know anything about this but I rented it because it's cover had Denzel Washington in a Hawaiian shirt holding a gun. It mostly delivered.

    I've NEVER wept at the end of a film like I did with this one.

    Being a young girl in the 1950s, experiencing this, Rooney Mara's character must have felt like she was on mars. Who knew life could be like this?

    Filmmaking at the highest level. How did they do it? Todd Haynes has built an emotional computer or some shit, so many wires, all working together, all perfectly placed.

    I don't know man, shit. It's real good.

    EDIT:…
