  • Schizopolis 1996

    ★★★★ Watched 18 Feb, 2015

    Ironically detached statement about movie in lieu of well thought-out criticism.

  • Birdman 2014

    ★★★★ Watched 07 Feb, 2015

    I intentionally watched Birdman before reading any reviews of it, and I have to say I'm pretty surprised by the intensity of some of the backlash against it. I don't know the director's previous films, and perhaps that ignorance allows me to enjoy the movie more. But I did enjoy it, despite mostly finding the whole "single take" thing a big distraction.

    This review reportedly contains spoilers. I can handle the truth.

  • The Act of Killing 2012

    ★★★★★ Watched 26 Jan, 2014

    An absolutely brutal film. The casualness with which the most horrible of atrocities are treated by their perpetrators is truly shocking, especially for the fact that those perpetrators are shown as they are: three-dimensional, conflicted human beings. It's a fascinating and appalling study in how the human mind can rationalize doing terrible things, up to a point at least.
