  • The Grand Budapest Hotel 2014

    ★★★★½ Watched 07 Apr, 2014

    Nailed it. Wes Anderson has always had a visionary quality, though it doesn't always quite take; his movies include a lot of great set pieces, if not great narrative through lines. But this has both of those in spades.

  • Fargo 1996

    ★★★★ Watched 03 Apr, 2014

    The more I think about it, the more I like it.

  • 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.
