    ★★★½ Watched 23 Sep, 2016

    Ice Cube's angry face + Channing Tatums piecing together, and subsequently find great joy in, the cause of Ice's Cube angry face is worth the price of admission alone. While I am not usually big on meta humour, this film does a good job of laughing at its own corporate driven existence.

    After Hours 1985

    ★★★★ Rewatched 31 Aug, 2016

    Soho has never looked so dark and gloriously deranged.  I wish Scorsese had more comedies like this in his canon.

    ★★★★½ Watched 16 Dec, 2012 4

    Trashy and surprising all at the same time. Feels more like a play at times than a film, but the performances are fantastic. Killer Joe is not a film that cannot easily be recommended to most people. However, those willing to take a risk are in for an experience they will not soon forget.

    I kind of wish the film had just focused on Jack White. I found him to be the most interesting of the three.
