  • Paradise Lost 3: Purgatory 2011

    ★★★★ Watched 24 Oct, 2014

    A great conclusion (?) to the trilogy of Berlinger/Sinofsky HBO docs that gives so much light to the confusion faced in the 2nd installment and does a great job of summing up the events of the first two with peppering in new details here and there until we get to a big batch of new details.

  • Paradise Lost 2: Revelations 2000

    ★★★★ Watched 25 Aug, 2013

    With The People vs. Larry Flynt being my third film into Milos Forman's so far excellent filmography I've found a similar threads throughout his works, primarily in his protagonists' desire to question and change and push the envelope of the worlds around them. With Jack McMurphy in Cuckoo's Nest he was pushing the insane asylum to its limit, and in Man on the Moon Andy Kaufman was taking comedy and entertainment above and beyond where people thought it could go.…
