    The Babadook 2014

    ★★★★½ Rewatched 26 Oct, 2016

    I liked this movie even more the second time I watched it. It is hands down one of the best pieces of fiction I've seen/read dealing with the subject of grief. And what's more, it's also pretty damn scary.

    Dead Ringers 1988

    ★★★½ Watched 22 Oct, 2016

    Surprisingly tame for a Cronenberg movie. There is body horror in it, yes, but it is in the periphery of the movie rather than the driving force behind the movie. Jeremy Irons is superb in it, but otherwise I found it a bit on the boring side.

    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.
