  • The Revenant

    The Revenant 2015

    ★★★★ Watched 18 Sep, 2016

    Yeah, it's as pretentious as everyone says it is. I rolled my eyes pretty hard at the self-indulgent long takes in particular, which by this point should go the way of bullet time effects and become the domain of parody only. Damn if it doesn't look pretty, though.

  • A Woman Under the Influence

    A Woman Under the Influence 1974

    ★★★★★ Watched 17 Sep, 2016

    This movie is heartbreakingly good. Gena Rowlands is amazing in it. Peter Falk is great. I've seen some people complain that it's too long, but there isn't a scene in it that I would cut, and I am a fairly impatient person.

  • The Act of Killing

    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.
