  • Michael Clayton

    Michael Clayton 2007

    ★★★★ Watched 13 Apr, 2015

    This was a very well acted, beautifully shot and edited film. I loved everything about it... the dialogue, the story and the intelligent way it was told, revealing little by little with little if any expository dialogue. I nice find on Neflix!

  • Wild Tales

    Wild Tales 2014

    ★★★½ Watched 29 Mar, 2015

    Six funny, dark, smart short films unified by similar concerns for ambiguous morality. These films remind me of another excellent one that I saw last year... "Force Majeure". I feel that they have similarities in approach, themes and humor.

    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.

    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.
