    Samurai Cop 1991

    ★★★★ Watched 18 Nov, 2015

    The hospital assassination scene with Robert Z'dar might be my favourite scene of the year.

  • Revolutionary Road

    Revolutionary Road 2008

    ★★★★ Watched 13 Nov, 2015

    Not an easy watch at times but DiCaprio and in particular Winslet sell this one for me. That being said, Michael Shannon nearly steals the film despite only appearing in two scenes. I'm a complete sucker for period films about suburban longing and existentialism. The score by Thomas Newman does a great deal to sell the emotional heft of the film.

    No Country for Old Men 2007

    ★★★★½ Watched 27 Jan, 2013

    A tense, bleak thriller that begins as a chase movie but ends as a discussion of mortality.

  • Memento

    Memento 2000

    ★★★★ Watched 21 Jul, 2012

    A twisting psychological thriller that slowly reveals the details in the tale as it goes along, despite the reversed chronological order. It starts off strong and gets better as it continues to flesh out its story.
