  • Tim's Vermeer 2013

    ★★★ Watched 16 Feb, 2014

    An interesting, straightforward documentary on the secret lost techniques of the Dutch painter Vermeer. Also showcases the creativity and determination of non-painter Tim in attempting to replicate the optics and techniques Vermeer is likely to have used.

    I can only chuckle at "quirkiness" for so long.

    The Wes Anderson style is front and center here but it lacks any real substance. Consequently, it comes off like I'm watching a two hour cartoon. All Anderson's films just make me feel like I'm watching the same movie over and over again...and I'm getting really tired of it.

  • Battleship Potemkin 1925

    ★★★ Watched 20 Jun, 2013

    I enjoyed this from a historical perspective as a film that successfully used new techniques such as montage and superb editing in the Odessa Steps section. It's historically significant as the prototype propaganda film.

    But that's where my enjoyment in the film ends. I'd probably never watch it again because I don't find propaganda films that interesting.
