  • Barton Fink

    Barton Fink 1991

    ★★★★ Rewatched 05 Feb, 2016

    Barton Fink is weird. Even for The Coen Brothers' usual fare, it's about as bizarre as it gets, switching narrative genres at the touch of a hat to the point where things can get seemingly alienating. There are points where the oddities of The Coens' fourth feature loses me in its twist and turns, but on this rewatch there seemed to be a bit more of a cohesive thread.

  • Short Term 12

    Short Term 12 2013

    ★★★★★ Watched 15 Sep, 2013

    Not much can really be said about Short Term 12. I'll put it simply; it makes you lose all faith in humanity... and then regain it in the span of 96 minutes. Brie Larson deserves that Best Actress statue now. One of the years best, if not thee best. SEE. IT.
