    Brooklyn is gloriously good!

    If I'd seen it upon its release last year, then it could have well been in my Top 10!

    The Dark Knight Rises 2012

    ★★★★★ Watched 26 Jul, 2012

    Whilst it faced near-on impossible odds, and didn't live up to the heavenly heights of 'The Dark Knight' (for me this is Nolan's Pièce de résistance), Christopher Nolan, does weave his visionary masterclass of filmmaking and storytelling to bring his near perfect Batman trilogy to an epically satisfying and engrossing conclusion - with this unpredictable, twisting and brooding biblical brute of a touching drama-spectacle. It's also solidly acted throughout from its ensemble.

  • Foxcatcher

    Foxcatcher 2014

    ★★★★★ Watched 10 Jan, 2015

    Aided by a taut script, Bennett Miller has pulled out the bag here a flawlessly directed and utterly compelling psychological tale of class, obsession and power. It slow-burns and makes your skin-crawl with a quiet intensity. Messrs Carrell, Tatum and Ruffalo mesmerize.

    Expect Oscars nods, come February 22nd.
