    Poltergeist 1982

    ★★★★ Watched 18 Oct, 2016

    Not very frightening, but full of those Spielberg suburbian vibes that always warm my heart. Absolutely loved the parents in this.

  • American Honey

    American Honey 2016

    ★★★★½ Watched 15 Oct, 2016

    One of those road trips where you kind of don't want to reach your destination. This film is an intimate and fascinating journey that I will be thinking about for a while. One of the best of the year for sure.

    Gone Girl 2014

    ★★★★★ Watched 02 Oct, 2014

    Not a film that ever feels scary, but I left the cinema uneasy anyway. The mood is masterfully set, as always, by David Fincher and his frequent collaborators Trent Reznor and Atticus Ross. The score and lighting can turn scenes that seem straight out of a romantic comedy into something foreboding. But this film isn't afraid to be funny either. It is definitely Fincher's most comical work and dark humor seems to be something he can do very well.

    Nightcrawler 2014

    ★★★★ Watched 31 Oct, 2014

    Jake Gyllenhaal terrified me in this. I was constantly made uncomfortable by him. But really, the true villain of this piece is the media. Between this and Gone Girl, the news has become the BIg Bad of 2014.
