  • Frank 2014

    ★★★ Watched 08 Feb, 2015

    A complicated film with a complicated tone. I can see why it didn't really hit with audiences but goddamn that Maggie Gyllenhaal... Fasbender ain't half bad either.

  • The Connection 2014

    ★★★ Watched 10 Sep, 2014

    think my expectations were set too high for this film. Telling the European perspective on the plot of The French Connection, this thriller follows the efforts of police in Marseilles to take down a massive heroin ring despite pervasive corruption in the local government. For a good 90% of its length, I was right there with it but, in the final scenes, it faces a narrative challenge that I felt it couldn’t quite overcome. That being said, fans of both police procedurals and swinging 70s cop films will be pleased and it has a fantastic soundtrack. Recommended with reservations.
