  • The Awful Truth

    The Awful Truth 1937

    ★★★½ Watched 21 Nov, 2015

    Another terrific performance by Cary Grant. He has moments of side-splitting comedic brilliance. In particular, his scenes with an oversized hat and an uncooperative chair and table.

    As with any other Grant film, I highly recommend it.

  • Human Desire

    Human Desire 1954

    ★★★★½ Watched 24 Nov, 2015

    The gorgeous Gloria Grahame, choo-choo trains, extra marital affairs, murderous plots and love pentagons all told through light and shadows.

    What's not to love?

    Inherent Vice 2014

    ★½ Watched 28 Jun, 2015 2

    A drug addled detective and fuckin' hippies in the 1970s - full of potential, but I felt let down. Not groovy.

  • The Way Back

    The Way Back 2010

    ★★★ Watched 28 Dec, 2013 2

    Read the book a couple of years ago and finally got to catch the film. A faithful adaptation. Amazing lengths that men will go through for freedom.
