  • L'Atalante

    L'Atalante 1934

    ★★★½ Watched 10 Feb, 2016

    Sadly I was underwhelmed by this movie and that was probably because the expectations were so high considering how well regarded the film is.

    It's enjoyable and has some great moments, but feels like a film that should have been made 10 years earlier as it would have worked just as well (maybe better) as a silent.

  • Synecdoche, New York

    Synecdoche, New York 2008

    ★★★★½ Watched 07 Feb, 2016

    A difficult film to get in to, particularly with the time shifts that happen early on, but once I was attuned to it and my mind and heart and been grabbed by Hoffman and Kaufman.

    One of the most moving and profound films I have seen recently that as a 50 something, has left me thinking about/questioning my own life choices.

    This film has gone straight on to my 'Must re-watch' list
