• Oppenheimer


    Ambitious to a fault, messy and unfocused, yet staggering, terrifying and most importantly deeply and alarmingly relevant.

  • Beau Is Afraid

    Beau Is Afraid

    not sure what to rate this because i both loved and hated it. the first act had me thinking i was watching a future cult classic, the second half derails into pure self indulgence in which aster's ego and self image take the film to that of pure lunacy and parody.

    will rewatch but at first glance, once again, the only thing holding aster back from being great director and artist is how fucking badly he clearly wants it.

  • Infinity Pool

    Infinity Pool


    Brandon Cronenberg shouldn’t be allowed near a camera again

  • Phantom of the Paradise

    Phantom of the Paradise


    A damming portrait on the evil industry that is the entertainment and show business. Hell on earth, but the show must go on!

  • Sisters



    A perverse fusion of Hitchcock and Polanski filmed with the style and showmanship that I’ve come to expect from De Palma. Great stuff, this guy is becoming one of my favorites.

  • Snake Eyes

    Snake Eyes


    I have yet to see a film that so perfectly encapsulates the corrupted swamp that is Washington, the media, the press and the institutions we perceive to be serving our interests. Power and money corrupts all, and this conspiracy thriller covers that theme with sleaze and style. Suspenseful from first frame to the last, this is one of the finest thrillers I’ve ever seen, and is just begging to be discovered as the true and relevant classic it really is.

  • Inglourious Basterds

    Inglourious Basterds


    At odds with this one because it contains the very best and the very worst of our beloved Tarantino. The opening, the pub scene, Christopher Walz — oh the joy! Contrasted by the closure, the basterd scene(s), Brad Pitt — oh the horror!

    There are spikes of cinematic greatness, but what comes up must come down and the segments that aren’t great absolutely drag. All in all, not what it could’ve and should’ve been.

  • After Hours

    After Hours


    A fun midnight hangout, directionless but has great components.

  • Ms .45

    Ms .45

    Utter trash on a level I didn’t even know Ferrara was capable of. In a snap of a finger, Thana goes from victim to victimizer, a complete psycho that is made only slightly sympathetic considering every other character in the movie is on a level of unlike ability that I’m not sure I’ve seen in a movie thus far.

  • Punch-Drunk Love

    Punch-Drunk Love

    Its got rhythm: the color and sound clashes in an unparalleled audiovisual landscape. Its cute, quirky, sweet and had the best of intentions, but fails to come together in a cohesive whole. I liked it, but it left me wondering what the point was.

  • Memories of Murder

    Memories of Murder

    Well shot, atmospheric, technically speaking well made yet meandering with its cardinal sin being how terribly stupid each and every single character is, and how despicably poor they are at their respective jobs. It’s an odd movie, silly yet somewhat gripping and intriguing at the same time. Don’t expect to be revisiting this though, just don’t know if I can view what is the world’s most incompetent investigation without getting irritated out of my mind not to mention its dreadfully boring for the vast majority of the runtime.

  • Dressed to Kill

    Dressed to Kill


    If Hitchcock had made a giallo it’d have looked like this. Technical wizardry fused with the upmost of perversity.
