  • Breathless

    Breathless 1960

    ★★★ Rewatched 06 Jun, 2014

    Stylish and whatever but pretty boring in parts. Need to separate influence from content.

  • The Wizard of Oz

    The Wizard of Oz 1939

    ★★★★ Rewatched 24 Jan, 2014

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

    I love the music and the colours and the visuals, however, this viewing is the first time I realised what a terrible bullshit message this film projects, and the lazy deus ex machina plot contrivances it employs.

    Dorothy is a weak protagonist, falling into an adventure and never actually instigating any actions, always resolving things by accident, such as killing the witch at the start and end of the film.

    The ending places a heavy appreciation on materialism and surface…

  • The Blair Witch Project

    The Blair Witch Project 1999

    ★★★★★ Watched 07 Mar, 2012 13

    Believe it or not I have gone 20 miserable years on this measly planet without ever having seen The Blair Witch Project. I had been put off by the vitriol on both camps, those who love it and hate it. There was the initial hype then the backlash then the anti-backlash and then the backlash all over again. Luckily for me, I am good at divorcing myself from all the things that are not the actual film when watching.
