  • Mr. Holmes

    Mr. Holmes 2015

    ★★★★ Watched 25 Jun, 2015

    Loss, regret, the fallibility of memories and the power of stories, all reflected in the twinkly eye of the eponymous defective, deceptive detective. Wonderful and lovely.

  • The Wicker Man

    The Wicker Man 1973

    ★★★★½ Watched 21 Jun, 2015

    Strange, discomfiting, potent and (rarely noted) funny.

  • Last Year at Marienbad

    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

    Due Date 2010

    ½ Watched 16 Jul, 2012

    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.
