  • Gone Girl 2014

    ★★½ Watched 02 Oct, 2014

    Meh. If feels like it will end up being more substantive than it actually ever becomes. A Fincher movie is always going to be watchable, but sure looks like an A-list treatment of a B-movie story and script.

  • Two Days, One Night 2014

    ★★★★★ Watched 09 Sep, 2014

    It feels scandalous, maybe even blasphemous to talk about the Dardennes maturing, getting *better,* and yet I personally feel their last three films, rather than stopping at the moment of epiphany, have soldiered on into more complex narrative denouements that somehow avoid the inevitable conclusions you think you see coming and yet are nevertheless true to the stories they tell. As writers, they are unsurpassed...and there have been moments in the last two films where I've felt the joy of life shared and not just a social studies lesson. It doesn't get any better than this.
