  • The Naked Spur

    The Naked Spur 1953

    ★★★★½ Watched 10 May, 2016 1

    "He's not a man...he's a sack of money!". The delicate strain of Beautiful Dreamer is a perverse grace note that adds one final sucker punch to the gut. Brutal, bleak, bruising, brilliant.

  • Hail Mary

    Hail Mary 1985

    Watched 31 Mar, 2016

    For people who feel that what the story of the Immaculate Conception really lacks is a portrayal of a whiny, wheedling, sexually frustrated, preppy Joseph.

    Last Year at Marienbad 1961

    Watched 24 Dec, 2014 2

    An ambiguous story that I may or may not have enjoyed.

    Only kidding: I unambiguously found it impenetrable and increasingly irritating, in no small part because of the intermittent screeching of the organ on the soundtrack.

    Due Date 2010

    ½ Watched 16 Jul, 2012
