  • Gone Girl

    Gone Girl 2014

    ★★★½ Watched 01 Jun, 2015

    Excellent. Creepy and powerful. The murder scene in particular stands out for me. Something about the editing, action and camera work was very effective. I have to find that scene and rewatch.

  • The Village

    The Village 2004

    ★★★ Watched 31 May, 2015

    Some beautiful cinematography. Story is a little over the top but still intriguing. The editing and sound works well at creating a sense of mystery and dread. I found the end was not as satisfying but very much enjoyed the whole film leading up to it. The atmosphere, colours and interesting framing were a joy to experience.

    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

    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.
