  • North by Northwest 1959

    ★★★★½ Watched 26 Nov, 2014

    This movie isn't absolutely perfect but it comes pretty close a few times.

  • Interstellar 2014

    ★★★★ Watched 29 Nov, 2014

    I found Interstellar to be the following things: gorgeous, smart, emotionally resonant, overlong, and occasionally frustrating. I was also very distracted by Topher Grace whenever he appeared onscreen. Ultimately, though, it's a remarkable movie, well worth seeing, especially in 70mm on IMAX.

  • 12 Years a Slave 2013

    ★★★★½ Watched 01 Mar, 2014

    Absolutely devastating. It's beautifully directed and acted, and so jarring that I haven't stopped thinking about several specific shots.

  • Silver Linings Playbook 2012

    ★★★★ Watched 22 Feb, 2013

    Sharp, witty, and occasionally wrenching take on what mental illness looks like for someone who never quite grew up, and someone else who did way too fast. Maybe it's because this is a subject near and dear to my heart, but I loved this unabashedly. It's sincere without being over the top and wonderfully acted.
