  • Wyatt Cenac: Brooklyn 2014

    ★★★ Watched 28 Oct, 2014

    Well, I can't say that the title of this comedy special didn't warn me. It is, in fact, almost entirely about Brooklyn. Manhattan makes a cameo appearance, but only in relation to its proximity to Brooklyn. In short: if you don't live in Brooklyn, want to live in Brooklyn, or just generally find Brooklyn fascinating, you can probably skip this one.

    Oh, and puppets.

  • Twin Peaks: Fire Walk with Me 1992

    ★★★★ Rewatched 26 Oct, 2014

    I first attempted to watch this movie in high school having seen not a single episode of the TV show. Needless to say, I found it a somewhat confusing experience. Second time around, some 20 years later and after having see the show via Netflix, I had a better time of it. It's still pretty confusing, of course, but in a managed expectations sort of way.

    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.
