  • Level Five 1997

    ★★½ Watched 16 Aug, 2014

    Different and weird and possibly even visionary — with some very affecting moments, especially the sections dealing directly with the Battle of Okinawa. But it's hard to look past the hokey stuff (Cocoloco … Cocoloco!! Cocoloco!!!), which makes all the seriousness feel even more tiresome.

  • Margin Call 2011

    ★★★½ Watched 09 Aug, 2014

    Lots of great actors on the poster, but I only decided to watch this after reading an interview with Steven Soderbergh:

    I saw Margin Call, twice in 36 hours, and thought, why isn’t that as big as sex, lies? I watched it with my wife, and we ordered it again two days later. I just thought that movie was great. Why didn’t that gross $25 million?

    And what makes even less sense than Hollywood? The financial industry.
