  • Under the Skin 2013

    ★★★★ Watched 27 Jan, 2015

    Finally saw this. I hate not writing a review but what new do I possibly have to add? It was worth the wait and surprisingly not disappointing. I even think the Kubrick claims in the press aren't entirely unwarranted for Glazer, he has a point of view and executes it beautifully.

  • Predestination 2014

    ★★★½ Watched 22 Jan, 2015

    In hindsight, the trailer is surprisingly misleading but the story is an entertaining bit of sci-fi time travel. Love the way the actual device is handled - no attempt scientific mumbo jumbo and "the rules" are loosely defined in the best enigmatic way.

    Solid performances from the main cast but, oddly, some of the makeup did take me out of it a bit. All and all, would recommend.

  • Citizenfour 2014

    ★★★★½ Watched 08 Dec, 2014

    If I were a more eloquent individual I could wax on about how powerful and important this movie is. The story of such a huge dissent told while it is happening is a bit unreal. I wish there were some uplifting message at the end about governments reigning it in but I saw none.

    Must see for anyone. Period.

  • 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.
