  • Foxcatcher 2014

    Chilling and astounding. I couldn't be more pleased how Director Bennett Miller took this true life crime story and made it in to a work of art, transforming Steve Carell to John du Pont with such accuracy and realism it was freaky. And Channing Tatum as Mark Schultz brought us along through a range of emotions and sanity. This film got you so close and inside the head of the characters, I really appreciated the level of intimacy that Miller took us "the audience". "Foxcatcher" may be my favorite of the year so far, loved it :)

  • Birdman 2014

    My initial thoughts of the film is that the cinematography, Michael Keaton, and Edward Norton were phenomenal. The women roles in the film, Emma Stone, Naomi Watts, Andrea Riseborough, Lindsay Duncan, and Amy Ryan were not as strong, like the supporting of the supporting roles (ie. Edward Norton), which was slightly disappointing, but overall I appreciated the lightness (hence bird and flying) this film carried, and how reality and fantasy blended together, using the stage as the place where the two combined. Brilliant :)

  • Capote 2005

    Watching this film reminded me how brilliant Phillip Seymour Hoffman is, because I forgot he was even there, I just saw the character, Truman Capote. Which makes me sad in a way now that he's gone, but his legacy is shown through his talent and makes Capote shine. There's a lot of talent in this film with Catherine Keener, Clifton Collins and Chris Cooper, but PSH is the string that holds the story and the talent together. I feel there are going to be a lot of films made in the future that would be greater with PSH holding it together. RIP Philip Seymour Hoffman!
