  • Anomalisa

    Anomalisa 2015

    ★★★★ Watched 14 May, 2016

    It's not often that I actually wish a movie had been longer, but I feel that way with Anomalisa. It's a solid movie with an abrupt ending that makes it feel kind of slight, but it is at the very least worth it for the puppet dong.

    Captain America: Civil War 2016

    ★★★★½ Watched 14 May, 2016

    It is amazing how good this movie turned out to be despite the sheer number of characters being juggled in it. I wasn't crazy about how they shoehorned Spider-Man into the plot, but Tom Holland was instantly my new favorite Peter Parker. Also: I didn't love Ant-Man's solo movie, but I felt like his presence really added a lot to to this movie. Black Panther? Totally badass and I'm looking forward to his solo film, too.

    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.
