  • The Leisure Class

    The Leisure Class 2015

    ★½ Watched 05 Nov, 2015

    Suffers from lack of character development and uneven pacing.
    Could be due to the budgetary & time constraints of HBO's Project Greenlight, or perhaps contestant winning director Jason Mann just isn't as good as he thinks he is.

  • The Assassin

    The Assassin 2015

    ★★★★½ Watched 03 Nov, 2015

    The best film i've seen so far this year, and certainly the best cinematography.

    Is Ridley Scott the only director Hollywood pushes their sci-fi material to?...

    Perhaps getting a younger director with something to prove would have elevated the material to another dimension.
    Instead we get the lean connect-the-dots formula from Scott.

  • Memento

    Memento 2000

    ★★★★½ Rewatched 18 Sep, 2015

    The editing/pacing of the film is intoxicating and haunting.

    Nolan bros at their darkest, most humorous & meta.
    Still his best film.
