    ★★½ Rewatched 18 Apr, 2015

    Never was a geek over this franchise. I know I've seen this before, but I will have forgotten it again by tomorrow.

    ★★★★ Watched 17 Apr, 2015

    A simple story that, in trusting its audience to see, becomes quite profound.

    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.
