    Bellflower 2011

    ★★★★ Watched 20 Aug, 2012

    A couple of over-saturated, fantasy hipsters contextualise their waking lives within the structural and aesthetic tenets of a range of dusty genre movies.

  • Freeway II: Confessions of a Trickbaby

    Freeway II: Confessions of a Trickbaby 1999

    ★★½ Watched 19 Aug, 2012

    Despite its sickly opening, this sour treat resolved its arc in the final act and began to win me over, but there was just too much convulsive banality and vomit-associated collateral damage in the first half of the film to tip the bilious balance. That said, there's a nice, Salty 90s soundtrack to season some of the less bulimic moments, and plenty of breadcrumbs leading back to the director's superior Freeway.

    Career Opportunities 1991

    ★★ Watched 18 Aug, 2012

    There must be a horror story behind how the filmmakers failed to convert this premise into a quality coming-of-age caper. It certainly has the ripest of ingredients with which to boil up a fantastic stone soup, but even a coin-operated Jennifer Connelly can't execute a piping-hot delivery. John Hughes penned and produced this in a pair of jeans with a very high waistband, I would imagine.

    Largely uninspiring, rotating talking heads. Some cool clips.
