  • Jodorowsky's Dune 2013

    ★★★★½ Watched 28 Jul, 2014

    Any lover of film or science fiction will adore this explanation of Alejandro Jodorowsky's failed adaption of Dune. Jodorowsky is lively and insanely likable to listen to, and it is amazing to see the repercussions this doomed film have had on Hollywood and imagine what might have been if it really got made. A must watch for any cinephile.

    ★★½ Watched 27 Jul, 2014

    Christopher Plummer gives an acting masterclass as John Barrymore in this one-man show but it probably translates better on the live stage than on film.

    Alexander Payne is the master of good, quirky family drama without dialing up the quirk.

  • Enemy 2013

    ★★★★½ Watched 25 Jun, 2014 3

    One of my most anticipated of 2014 turns out to be one of the best of the year for me. Some people will go into watching this expecting something straightforward or a standard thriller. This film is definitely more of a complex, psychological film that is creepy and engulfing to watch. Jake Gyllenhaal nails the dual roles, the camerawork and score are all moody and add to the atmosphere. I wish the film was longer and explained some things but Holy Shit, did my heart stop at that ending. Wow.
