  • George Washington 2000

    ★★★★½ Rewatched 11 Dec, 2013

    Watched a second time and it still holds up. I really love this movie. A lot of people have compared it to some of Malick's stuff, Days of Heaven in particular. I think that's probably a fair comparison. One of the things I like so much about Terrence Malick is the way he's able to so perfectly capture the feeling of a time and a place. George Washington does exactly that for a group of young kids during a hot summer in a rural North Carolina town. For an hour and a half, I feel like a child again.

  • Ain't Them Bodies Saints 2013

    ★★★½ Watched 07 Dec, 2013

    Great music, beautifully shot and a pretty good love story / crime drama.

  • Le Samouraï 1967

    ★★★★ Watched 27 Nov, 2013

    Another one I came across through Noir November on /r/truefilm. Really enjoyed this one, particularly the steady pacing and Jef's character.

  • Senna 2010

    ★★★★★ Watched 11 May, 2012

    I went into this not knowing a thing about Senna (or Formula One, for that matter) and was completely blown away. At times it felt like I was watching a movie, not a documentary. An outstanding film that tells the amazing story of "the best driver who ever lived".
