    Has no idea what it wants to be. Even del Toro doesn't know. I'm sad we won't see anything else like it.

    It's kind of amazing that this film even exists given the artistic climate in Iran. Jafar Panahi is a film treasure and I will certainly be checking out his other features after seeing this one.

    Puella Magi Madoka Magica the Movie Part III: Rebellion 2013

    ★★★½ Watched 07 Dec, 2013

    A fun Clusterf*ck. You need a Ph.D in anime to be able to follow everything that happens. Luckily I have one and I enjoyed what I saw. Diminishes the greatness of the original series, but only by a little.

  • Birdman

    Birdman 2014

    ★★★★½ Watched 24 Oct, 2014

    Liking this film isn't as immediate as others I've seen this year, but it still packs a wallop. The craft of this picture seeps out of every frame. The terrific ensemble cast that should be a lock for the SAG award and the wonderful cinematography all really bring home this story about Broadway and Egos.
