    This film may be extremely long, but it used every second to perfection, it all felt necessary. Scorsese just feels like a master of his craft at this point. The visuals, the story, the dialogue, the wonderful choices for the soundtrack. He’s just perfected what he does best. But the performances too are so amazing. Robert DeNiro is unbelievably amazing here, his performance right up to the end was perfect. 

    Also the end of this film was so emotional, I nearly cried. God damnit DeNiro. 

    I enjoyed this film way more than I thought I ever could, it’s a masterpiece.

    The visuals are phenomenal too, Kurosawa uses widescreen wonderfully, he takes advantage of the medium to its best degree. 

    Loved another Kurosawa film, this might be my favourite yet!

    My first Wong Kar Wai film and I thoroughly enjoyed it. Already on his very first film he has a strong style, great writing and handfuls of memorable scenes and moments. 

    Loved the struggles of Wah, who must choose between the quiet, happy life he could have with his distant cousin (definitely weird but I’ve become desensitized to incest by watching too many strange films), or the life of crime with his best friend Fly. The bond between Wah ans…
