  • The Grandmaster 2013

    ★★★½ Watched 11 Apr, 2014

    Holy crap do I wish I had been able to see the international version of this film. I feel like there was a really good movie hiding beneath the layers of agonizingly stilted exposition of the American cut. Give us Americans some credit. We're not ALL idiots.

  • The Grand Budapest Hotel 2014

    ★★★★★ Watched 05 Apr, 2014

    I'm not sure where exactly I would rank this film amongst all of Wes Anderson's oeuvre, but it's at the very least damn near the top. He gets better and better at composition with every film, to the point where there is certainly not another director out there right now making movies that look like his, although many have tried. This movie looks absolutely amazing on the big screen, and should be seen in a theater by anyone and everyone with even a passing interest in cinema.

    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.
