  • The Unity of All Things 2013

    ★★ Watched 13 Aug, 2014

    I feel like this film is the kind of film future societies will be making about the past. Post-plot, post-human, post-borders, post-language. Flat and dampened emotions and multi-lingual with subtitles for every language. Filmed in the nostalgic medium of the time.

    That being said, this was far from an enjoyable experience. Or even an insightful one.

  • Mommy 2014

    ★★★★½ Watched 10 Aug, 2014

    Pitch perfect melodrama. This is the film I knew Dolan had in him.

  • What We Do in the Shadows 2014

    ★★★★½ Watched 02 Aug, 2014

    A total crowd pleaser. There hasn't been a film in the cinema this consistently hilarious in a few years. A true joy.

  • The One I Love 2014

    ★★★★ Watched 03 Aug, 2014

    Complicates attraction and love in ways that are delightfully wicked and strangely insightful. It will be hard to discuss without ruining things for those who haven't seen it (and possibly even harder after), but it knows that much of what we call attraction is shaped by our own perception and desire and plays it out through a Rod Serling lens.
