  • Nymphomaniac 2013

    ★★★ Watched 20 Oct, 2014

    Not as outrageous as media, publicity and even the title seems to suggest. There is some humorous moments and an interesting use of graphics and split screen. I found it interesting and look forward to seeing part two.

  • Switch 2011

    ★★½ Watched 14 Oct, 2014

    Watchable thriller. Like other reviewers, I agree that the story is highly improbable but if you manage to suspend your disbelief and let yourself be dragged into it, it retains your attention sufficiently.

  • Under the Skin 2013

    ★★★★½ Watched 01 Jul, 2014

    Almost experimental. Great soundtrack. Moody as hell. Tracking shots like those of Birth. Reminds me of Roeg's "The Man Who Fell to Earth" in that the film is experienced through the eyes of the alien. Not much is explained. I like the mystery.

  • The Great Beauty 2013

    ★½ Watched 27 Sep, 2014

    This is one film that did not appeal to me in the least. I was not even particularly impressed by the cinematography. I won't criticize this one because my feelings about it are obviously biased.
