  • Hiroshima mon amour 1959

    ★★★ Watched 19 Aug, 2014

    Some things aren't meant to be forgotten, but sometimes we can't help ourselves. Other times we have nothing real to forget in the first place.

  • The Whip and the Body 1963

    ★★★½ Watched 19 Aug, 2014

    A weirdly sexual B-movie horror story and a bad English dub but some awesomely creepy use of color and shadow, and some great classic horror cheese and tropes.

  • About Time 2013

    ★★★★½ Watched 28 Oct, 2013

    A misleading poster made me expect a lame romantic comedy, but I got something completely different instead. Damn that was good. Don't get me wrong, it was a bit romantic comedy-esque in the beginning but became a whole lot more. The message has been told before, but that doesn't make this telling any less effective.

  • Killing Them Softly 2012

    ★★★★ Watched 02 Dec, 2012

    A slower film, but it has a lot to say. And Jesus Christ that final scene was amazing.
