  • Force Majeure 2014

    ★★★★ Watched 10 Nov, 2014

    Really wonderful, witty, funny and original film-making. Great script and acting. Loved it.

  • Queen Margot 1994

    ★★★½ Watched 08 Nov, 2014

    Watched the first half of this new, restored (longer version) of "La Reine Margot". Only half way through right now... I originally watched this film in it's edited version on DVD many years ago and was very impressed.

  • 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 2

    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.
