  • Why Don't You Play in Hell? 2013

    ★★★★★ Watched 10 Jul, 2014

    The last 40 minutes of this movie are some of the best 40 minutes I've ever seen. I don't know if I've seen a movie that not only is able to use the medium of film so well, but also the industry and enterprise.

    Towards the beginning there is a really great shot where a little girl steps into an ankle high pool of blood and begins to slide through it.

    Why can't Americans make a film even a 1/10 this interesting? This film could only have ever come from Japan.

  • Norte, the End of History 2013

    ★★★★★ Watched 25 Jun, 2014

    The shots last at least around 30 seconds each, if not more.

  • The Distinguished Gentleman 1992

    ★★ Watched 06 Dec, 2012 1

    eh. plays like a moderately funny version of Mr. Smith Goes To Washington. Why I watched this for my government class I shall never know.

  • Three Colors: Blue 1993

    ★★★★★ Rewatched 16 Jun, 2014

    The shot of the doctor reflected through Binoche's eye. The fade to blacks in the middle of scenes, where all we hear is the score. The finger trailing across the music in close-up. This film is amazing. Everything cinema can do and more. Kieslowski doesn't just tell a story, he conducts a symphony.
