  • The Assassin

    The Assassin 2015

    ★★★★ Watched 20 May, 2015

    Simply gorgeous. Takes wuxia, the most over-played genre in Chinese film, and makes it seem completely alien without subverting any of its gestures or values.

  • Virtuosity

    Virtuosity 1995

    ★★★ Rewatched 10 Apr, 2015

    Trashy ‘90s thriller involving serial killers and virtual reality—in other words, un film de Brett Leonard. However, would argue that the real auteur here is production designer Nilo Rodis-Jamero, the former George Lucas associate who also designed Johnny Mnemonic. This is what old-school auteurists would call a William Cameron Menzies situation; Leonard’s direction is only as interesting as the garish designs and borderline-Expressionist sets he’s playing off of.

    No one's written the Great American Novel yet, but James Gray went ahead and made a movie out of it anyway.
