    Murder on Middle Beach

    ★★★★

    I've read some complaints about this saying it is a piece of exploitative trash but that couldn't be any farther from the truth, at least to me, while there are certainly some flaws to be had here this doc tries its damnedest to not be tasteless or unethical to a certain extent aside from the moments where people are secretly being either filmed or audibly recorded, having me worried for any legal repercussions that could possibly face our fellow documentarian,…

    Mikey and Nicky

    ★★★★½

    "YOU WAIT!!"

    Cassavetes is so good at playing a rightfully paranoid shithead it's almost like Nicky wants you to utterly hate him for his insufferable behavior and sudden decisions that one can only describe as utterly spur of the moment but he's right sometimes, only sometimes.

There are no cowards in war, only survivors just as there are no true heroes, only damaged men…

    ★★★★★

    "Yer fond of me lobster aint' ye!?"

    You know I honestly thought Dafoe would come out of this looking the most unhinged but goddamn does Pattinson just go for broke gradually over the course of the film, his goofy Maine accent just slams (I should know, I have one) and the comical misfortunes that befall him gave me some of the biggest laughs of the year as well as the massive rants he and Dafoe rail on each other as…
