    Minus one star for its positive portrayal of skylights, which are certainly an invention of the Devil. Brie Larson is pretty good in it, though.

    ★★★½ Watched 18 Jul, 2016

    There were two competing views of this movie I heard on my way out of the theater. The first was an angry white guy who declared loudly, "There were so many things wrong with that movie!" The second was my daughter, who said, "I thought it was fun."

    I'm with my daughter on this one. Also, Kate McKinnon is just always funny.

    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.
