    The Art of the Steal 2009

    ★★★★ Watched 19 Oct, 2016

    Wanted to see this film ever since seeing the poster years ago. What a one sheet! Loving art heists, this wasn't quite what one might expect but it still delivers in terms of the stakes involved and what a story this is. Albert C. Barnes was a chemist who amassed a large collection of modern art (at the time) from the likes of Matisse, Cezanne, Renoir and Picasso.

    Your Name. 2016

    ★★★★ Watched 16 Oct, 2016

    In the style of Matt, because why not. Saw this with my cinema card and also cos the poster looks damn cool. Look at it. Like some seventies sepia stuff and I'm always down for that. Opens on Gyllenhaal thin as hell. Hair slicked back like some creepy dude. No money but clearly owns a comb. Does bad shit with this grin. Freaked me out a bit but whatever, it's cool.
