pretending to be a character from a pretentious indie.
John Dahl's The Last Seduction is an excellent neo-noir erotic thriller, told from the femme fatale’s perspective. Such a clever, darkly-funny and under-discussed movie. Linda Fiorentino gives an astonishing performance, as one of cinema's most memorable femme fatales. Such a shame Fiorentina disappeared off the scene. Bill Pullman gives a brilliantly sleazy performance, wish he had more screen time in the film.
This & Body Heat would make for a great double bill.
Martin Campbell's Edge of Darkness is a solid revenge/conspiracy thriller, single-handedly elevated by powerhouse performances from Mel Gibson and Ray Winstone. It's formulaic, sure, but brutal and tightly directed enough to distract from the obvious plot machinery. Quite underappreciated.
Dude, I was so goddamn stressed throughout the movie. Like I was really worried for the whole damn family (especially for Alan Kim).
This movie is such an incredibly moving and empathetic portrait of Korean-American family in search of their own American Dream. It's compassionately told, intimate drama filled with moments of innocence, pure joy and incredible sadness. Every actor is a standout & Emile Mosseri's score was sublime.
