  • Zodiac 2007

    ★★★ Watched 23 Jan, 2015

    I'm almost positive I've seen this before but I haven't recorded it before in Letterboxd so maybe I'm just imagining things. I feel like this is probably the weakest Fincher film I've seen. It's still good, pacing, performances, production — but it lacks the resonance of his other films.

  • Everything or Nothing: The Untold Story of 007 2012

    ★★ Watched 19 Jan, 2015

    A middling documentary covering the evolution of James Bond, particularly in film. Might have been better if it hadn't been so hagiographic towards the Broccolis.

  • Rurouni Kenshin: Kyoto Inferno 2014

    ★★★ Watched 14 Aug, 2014

    This and the next film are really one story and as a result, it's difficult to properly judge this film on its own. A ton of characters are introduced and very little is resolved. The good news is that with so much going on, things are never boring. I look forward to giving a fuller appraisal in September.

  • Rounders 1998

    ★★ Watched 30 Apr, 2013

    This review reportedly contains spoilers. I can handle the truth.

    Frankly, a little disappointing. I like Norton, Damon and Malkovich but I just don't really understand what this film was about. I guess following your heart. And kind-hearted Russian cut-throat gangsters.
