  • The One I Love 2014

    ★★★ Watched 13 Aug, 2014

    I liked it. I have lots and lots of questions but I liked it. Duplass has nice range and is better than his usual mumblecore or The League douchery. Moss is solid; want to see her in more non-Mad Men things.

    But the plot; lots of questions. Was it sweet? Was it sad? Was it incredibly orchestrated from the start? So many questions! I guess that ambiguity is the stories biggest strength.

  • Coherence 2013

    ★★★ Watched 08 Aug, 2014

    Low budget, sorta ad lib sci-fi. Quality story unfolds similar to Primer but less head fuckery. Not gushing but solid evening of entertainment.

  • The Immigrant 2013

    ★★½ Watched 02 Aug, 2014

    Cinematography was honestly gorgeous. Can't sing it's praises enough. Acting was believable and solid. However, Story was boring, predictable and unengaging (for me, remember this is subjective).

    Would not recommend but would suggest looking up screenshots or snippets just to enjoy the cinematography.

  • Manhattan 1979

    Watched 14 Jul, 2014

    Reviewing classics that you managed to never see until recently rarely yields any worthwhile insight for anyone involved. I will say, the hype regarding the cinematography did not do it justice. Stunning looking start to finish.
