  • On the Waterfront

    On the Waterfront 1954

    ★★★ Watched 24 Aug, 2016

    My feelings about this are best encapsulated by what Marlon Brando later wrote about Elia Kazan and Budd Schulberg: "They made the film to justify finking on their friends." And I just can't get past that.

  • The Shallows

    The Shallows 2016

    "As himself, Steven "Sully" Seagull."

  • 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
