    Following 1998

    ★★★½ Watched 31 Aug, 2016

    Part of the See You Next Wednesday challenge.

    Film 6 of 7-
    Criteria Met:
    Contemporary(last 20 years) black and white film.

    'Following', a micro budget neo-noir film made by Christopher Nolan, retroactively highlights and enforces Nolan's strengths in non-linear storytelling, a style that is common among his best work(Memento, Batman Begins, The Prestige).

    Don't Breathe 2016

    ★★★½ Watched 26 Aug, 2016

As the title suggests, you'll be on the edge of your seat, wanting desperately to let out a sigh of relief, or at least a few moments to exhale.
