I like cats, coffee, waffles, long walks on the beach, but not the bees. NOT THE BEES.

    Revealer

    ★★

    It's 1987 and Angie (Caito Aase) is working at a dingy peep show. There are religious protestors outside, led by an angry young Christian named Sally (Shaina Schrooten).

    ★★★★★

    I watch a lot of movies that feel so messy and out of control I just think "who is this for? Does even the director understand what they're doing?" and it's refreshing to feel, from the very start, that you're in the hands of someone who truly knows what they're doing. Lust, Caution is exquisitely made; not just in terms of its lavish production values but in every sense. It's cinema that knows just the right balance between opulent movie…
