    The Professionals

    ★★★★

    Finally getting around to watching Richard Brook's 1966 classic The Professionals, it's one that I have been wanting to check out for years now.

    I really loved this film, it wastes zero time in setting up characters, setting, and set up. I've seen this get compared to The Wild Bunch quite a number of times and while the settings are about the same that's really where it ends.

This is filmmaking as it should be.

    ★★★★★

    A meditative portrait of humanity that shows us at our very core. With Aparajito, Satyajit Ray explores deeper into our nature and it is nothing short of mesmerizing. I feel so much for these characters and I feel like I am actually witnessing a real family and their struggles and triumphs. Satyajit Ray is such a distinct director; he explores themes of humanity and family bonds like no other.

    Aparajito had me tears by the end and that us very…
