    One of my all-time favorites (# 19 to be exact, but who's keeping track of that?) and it looks amazing on Criterion's baby-blu.  Looking forward to digging through the extras - listened to Kubrick's 3-minute audio interview and that is already pure gold!

    This review may contain spoilers. I can handle the truth.

    Not exactly the most uplifting movie I've ever seen, still this was a powerful, intense and really absorbing story. While one of the more depressing films I've ever seen, it was also exhilirating to watch due to the craft and creativity put into it.

    Fassbender's performance really made the film as did its methodical pace and confident directing. Carey Mulligan was really good also. You could definitely feel the pain of both characters.

    Brandon was just a miserable man, somebody…

    This review may contain spoilers. I can handle the truth.

    I haven't been this undecided and mixed on a movie in a long time. I was really frustrated and disappointed by certain aspects of this yet there were other pieces that I really liked. On top of that, there were probably about 3 or 4 absolutely amazing scenes that really upped the ante and were unlike anything I had seen. Zack Snyder obviously wanted to go big and epic here and he really delivers on that end.

    My biggest complaint…
