  • Killer's Kiss

    Killer's Kiss

    ★★½

    Kubrick does a Hitchcock flim.

  • A Brighter Summer Day

    A Brighter Summer Day

    ★★★★½

    You love to hate and hate to love all the characters in this. Definitely not what I expected it to be but it as the runtime went on I enjoyed it more and more.

  • Mirror

    Mirror

    ★★★★½

    Tarkovsky makes you absolutely feel when watching this. You see love, age, hate, family, and war all within in this. This is artistic and thoughtful. Will need to rewatch.

  • Field of Dreams

    Field of Dreams

    ★★★½

    The book censorship scene was the best and I wish we got more of the wife. Much better than I expected!

  • PlayTime

    PlayTime

    ★★★½

    Beautiful. Artistic. Playful.

    It took me a minute to understand what was going on in this but once I understood I just went and had fun. A lot of the jokes were hit or miss for me. Every single frame feels intentional and like it could be a work of art. It's just so different from something I've ever seen.

  • Rear Window

    Rear Window

    ★★★★½

    Call this guy Jerry Seinfeld cause all these people are coming into his apartment and helping him out. 

    For real though best Hitchcock that I've seen so far. Technically, Visually and by storytelling.

  • The King's Man

    The King's Man

    ★★½

    Way to many cuts and edits in this where I got a minor headache. It felt like it tried to be two different movies. The whole moral thing with Ralphs character felt so flip floply that I just didn't really care at the end. It's ok.

  • Cliffhanger

    Cliffhanger

    ★★★

    Better than Air Force One, not as good as Die Hard. Great example of pre 2000 action movie.

  • American Gangster

    American Gangster

    ★★★★

    Russell Crowe seems like he'd be a better dad then mine.

  • Gandhi

    Gandhi

    ★★★★

    A bit too long but this is really well made. The opening scene on the train is chefs kiss.

  • Red Rocket

    Red Rocket

    ★★★★

    I don't love Red Rocket but I appreciate what Sean Baker does with this. This is visually appealing with it's film grain look and it's color grading. The story Baker tells through the environments is just unbelievably. Simon Rex's performance is amazing and ties so well in the world he's captured. Now the plot and story lead by Simon Rex's character is one that made me squirm in my seat, I just wasn't comfortable. That's good story telling that he can do that though. I'm not going to make that a slight on the film though. Overall another strong piece for Sean Bakers filmography.
