  • The Grand Budapest Hotel 2014

    ★★★★★ Watched 24 Apr, 2014

    the most wes anderson film so far. every picture is perfect and beautifu. the story is mostly empty, just there for the pretty pictures' sake.

  • To the Wonder 2012

    ★★★★½ Watched 04 Feb, 2014

    a beautiful continuation of tree of life. surprise! life's still mysterious and difficult. and you won't understand everything. especially love, what the what now?

    detail: the picture floats in the moment & is damn near perfect.

  • Nebraska 2013

    ★★★★½ Watched 23 Sep, 2013

    road movie is an appealing genre to me, so that's a plus. then the frank dialogue is another. there's something familiar to it, it feels a bit finnish. in a good way. and the rough black & white visuals are a perfect match for the old, sleepy towns of the film.

    a little off topic, but i want angela mcewan to tuck me in and tell me everything's going to be alright.

  • Tasting Menu 2013

    ★½ Watched 25 Sep, 2013

    insignificant. that's the word. the film wasn't bad, but it definitely wasn't good either. a few laughs here, a couple of plot holes there. lighthearted. that's another word. the film wasn't aiming very high anyway, so… meh.
