    High-Rise 2015

    ★★ Watched 18 Aug, 2016

    aimless & boringly garish...

  • L'Avventura

    L'Avventura 1960

    ★★★★½ Watched 04 Aug, 2016

    Structurally & narratively this film is so daring and inventive... would make a great double feature w/ Psycho (also 1960) in that regard.
    The viewer truly does share the experience of the two main characters.

    Aesthetically, I'm not sure I've seen a director capture an actor's face in frame quite as affectingly as Antonioni does Vitti, though Godard/Karina & Dreyer/Falconetti do come to mind.

  • Gilda

    Gilda 1946

    ★★★½ Watched 02 Jun, 2016

    Certainly on the minor end of Hollywood classics.

    Plus: Rita Hayworth & some ace sequences
    Minus: at times plotting
