    August 32nd on Earth 1998

    ★★★½ Watched 17 Nov, 2016

    Denis Villeneuve showed talent already on this early stage in his career.

    Bone Tomahawk 2015

    ★★★½ Watched 09 Nov, 2016

    A slow-burning western gradually turning into brutal horror, clearly deserving its R-rating. An impressing debut from director S. Craig Zahler and Kurt Russell'll probably keep delivering kick-ass roles as long as he's standing on two feet. All this for the price of 1,8 million dollars, 1/90 "Doctor Strange".

    Mommy 2014

    ★★★★ Watched 11 Dec, 2014

    Xavier Dolan goes Hollywood plot, somewhat. I think I've seen this unstable mother with violent son-story before, though Dolan does it more visually interesting than most filmmakers. A bit too long, the music scenes are a bit off and I miss the LGBT part appearent in his earlier films. Still wothwhile, though, strongly acted, nice visuals and a mysterious neighbor of few words balancing the excessive two main characters. Just don't head too far into the mainstream, Dolan, even with your next Jessica Chastain English-speaking feature.

    Nocturnal Animals 2016

    ★★★★½ Watched 07 Nov, 2016

    Beautiful, tense and horrifying with outstanding performances from Amy Adams, Jake Gyllenhaal and Michael Shannon in one of his best roles as a sheriff in Texas.
