    Lynne Ramsay should definitely direct UNDER THE SKIN.

  • Highball

    Highball 1997

    ★★½ Watched 26 Sep, 2015

    Not great, but also frequently much funnier than KICKING AND SCREAMING, and also I am a sucker for any comedy bits with people in felt lizard/dinosaur costumes.

    Coherence 2013

    ★★ Watched 24 Aug, 2014

    There's something here as far as an intriguing concept, but Byrkit and his cast unfortunately don't lift it beyond the appearance of a theatre company interpreting the works of Shane Carruth, attempting to jazz things up with tight shots and unearned jump scenes. The slow-burn execution means we get a lot of "what's that??" exclamations in the dialogue/improvisation before things actually start getting interesting two-thirds of the way in.

  • Gone Girl

    Gone Girl 2014

    ★★★★½ Watched 03 Oct, 2014

    Every generation gets the recessionary, batshit, dressed-to-kill skin-crawler American thriller it deserves.
