  • Valley of Love

    Valley of Love 2015

    ★★★½ Watched 23 May, 2015

    VALLEY OF LOVE: This makes it sound better than it is but there's a little bit of a Linklater BEFORE movie (way down the line) here. Decent.


  • Macbeth

    Macbeth 2015

    ★★★ Watched 23 May, 2015

    MACBETH: Looks great, looks big, but turns out Kurosawa & Polanski pretty much had it covered.

  • Mad Max: Fury Road

    Mad Max: Fury Road 2015

    ★★★★½ Watched 06 May, 2015

    A magnum opus. A heavy metal WAGES OF FEAR. I was not let down even one little bit. Miraculous.

    The insta-reactions:

    Was so worried what would happen if FURY ROAD didn't meet my expectations, I didn't stop to think what would happen if it did. AAAAAAAAAHHH!

    FURY ROAD reveals what we thought were the impressive large scale action films of the last 20 years to have actually been total chickenshit.

    George Miller to James Cameron, Peter Jackson, Michael Bay, Alfonso Cuaron, all of Marvel and others: "You're not metal."


  • Youth

    Youth 2015

    ★★½ Watched 20 May, 2015

    I'll grant a bit of fatigue & grumpiness at this point, but I didn't buy YOUTH at all. GREAT BEAUTY teased into Fox Searchlight awards bait.

    [Post fest update: Fuck this movie.]
