  • Hyde Park on Hudson

    Hyde Park on Hudson 2012

    ★★★ Watched 29 Jul, 2015 1

    A relatively boring love story between FDR and his distant cousin Daisy combined with a rather interesting and fairly amusing story about the visit of the English King with said president makes for a pretty average film.
    Who would have guessed?

    Bill Murray as FDR is great as ever. He is noticably mimiking the president but still has that old Murray flair about him that is so engaging and endearing to me. King George and Queen Mum are also very…

  • Inherent Vice

    Inherent Vice 2014

    ★★★★ Watched 26 Jul, 2015

    Like a weed-induced dream you never wanna wake up from.

    And that Shasta Fay ... marvelous.

    Because it's a mess and because I'm lazy and tired, I'll just provide some thoughts and notes, instead of a proper review:

    * First of all, Saffron Burrows. She's pretty and all that, but what a black hole of charisma she is in this movie. I don't think she emoted at all, even when she was in danger. I know, that she was…

  • Enemy

    Enemy 2013

    ★★★★ Watched 23 Jul, 2015 2

    I can't even begin to unravel Enemy's intricately woven web of doppelgangers, self-image, desire, expectation, self-worth, the role of women in a man's life and .. spiders, but let me just say this:

    I fucking loved this movie. It's like a nightmare come to life, a nightmare so full of hidden meaning and fascinating ideas that one will puzzle about it long after they've seen it. I won't speculate here, because I want to spare you my undercooked ideas…
