  • Exit Through the Gift Shop 2010

    ★★★★½ Added

    A seminal documentary regarding the state of the art world and (more importantly) the art market in the late 2000s. A perfect successor to the Beautiful Losers documentary.

    I am constantly intrigued by the refusal to believe that this documentary is 100% true as it stands. It's no Banksy "prank." It's just how it is in the art world right now. I think people find that fact to be unbelievable, which makes this film all the more poignant and hilarious.…

  • The Debt 2010

    ★★★½ Added

    Fantastic, old-school spy thriller with heart, poise, intrigue, and Hellen Mirren (along with a fantastic supporting cast). Mossad in the 60s in a split Berlin was very well-done. Timeline weaving was very nice; they treated the flashback as a real flashback instead of trying some story-telling trickery. This film is adult, it is paced, and early-era spycraft is so refreshing after so much Bourne fantasy.

    This is quite possibly my favorite movie of all time. Mel Brooks is a genius. 80s comedy and satire at its absolute best.

    This review reportedly contains spoilers. I can handle the truth.
