  • Lincoln

    Lincoln 2012

    ★★★½ Watched 09 May, 2015

    As a European with *very* superficial knowledge of the entire backstory, it was hard to get into the little intricacies and subtlety of the story. Pretty amazing cast though, across the board, and impressive costumes and sets.

    Tracks 2014

    ★★★½ Watched 05 May, 2015

    The first half felt fairly traditional and rushed, where a whole host of characters are introduced as fast as they disappear. It's only in the second part when the pace goes down that you can really appreciate the magnitude and desolation of this incredible undertaking.

    The Yes Men Fix the World 2009

    ★★★½ Watched 27 Apr, 2013

    The subject matter: 5★. The film itself: 3★. The way they take a shit with the capitalist ideologists in this film is pure gold. They set the most ludicrous traps and still people step into it. As a documentary however, there's still some work into making it a more coherent, interesting whole.

    I can't really comment on the pace or the length of this movie, as I was just so incredibly impressed with what was on the screen. Hell, I had gladly sat through another hour of it.

    The HFR 3D was just so friggin' amazing and sharp, it was the most impressive thing I've ever seen in cinema. Maybe after the next viewing I'll have a clearer opinion of the film as a whole, but now I just have to give this 5 stars.
