  • Locke 2013

    ★★★ Watched 20 Oct, 2014

    Despite a fine low-key performance by Hardy and nice atmospheric music, Locke can't help but feel like a bit like a student one-act play with its very rigid structure and overall its minimalist style kept me out instead of dragging me in.

  • Hello, Dolly! 1969

    ★★★★ Watched 19 Oct, 2014

    This movie pummels you over the head with so much sentimentality that by the end you're either headstrong enough to have blocked it out, or or at some point it managed to get into your system. It can easily go down as one of Gene Kelly's most fantastic works in his repertoire and really without him this movie could've easily been forgotten. That's not to say that the cast doesn't do a great job as well with some great choreography all around. It seems that at the near death of the big studio musical, Kelly made a nearly perfect example of one that should be appreciated.

  • The People vs. Larry Flynt 1996

    ★★★★ 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.…
