  • The Overnight

    The Overnight 2015

    ★★½ Watched 30 Jan, 2016

    I was looking for a comedy to watch and Netflix billed this as one, so I watched it. It is not a comedy. It is more akin to a Lynchean horror movie. It's not confident enough to maintain that tone, though, so the end result is a mishmash of awkwardness and earnestness that ends with the movie pulling its punches in a pretty unsatisfying way.

  • Ant-Man

    Ant-Man 2015

    ★★★ Watched 25 Jan, 2016

    Ranks down at the bottom of the pack with Iron Man 2 as far as Marvel movies go. Any charm the movie has is entirely thanks to Paul Rudd, but even he isn't given a whole lot to work with. It's also the most gratuitious CGI-fest I've seen since... well, probably Avengers 2.

  • 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.
