  • The Man from Colorado

    The Man from Colorado 1948

    ★★★ Watched 26 Jun, 2016

    Made in 1948 and impressively progressive enough to deal with PTSD and the way a nation neglects its veterans.

  • The Nice Guys

    The Nice Guys 2016

    ★★★★½ Watched 04 Jun, 2016

    A film so simpatico with my predilections and obsessions that it felt like Shane Black made it just for me. Ryan Gosling absolutely nailed his Lou Costello riff. And I'm a sucker for a Jim Rockford easter egg. Outstanding.

    Last Year at Marienbad 1961

    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.

    The sheer fucking unwarranted hubris of Todd Phillips that he thought he could better (let alone equal) PLANES, TRAINS & AUTOMOBILES. I laughed a total of two times - both times because Downey Jr. pulled a facial expression that managed to rise above the pitiful slop of the script.
