    7 Chinese Brothers 2015

    ★★★½ Watched 03 Sep, 2015

    Harkens back to the quirky indie comedies of the late 90s. Slow paced, quirky characters and uncomfortable situations. Did I mention quirky?

    Despite nothing too much happening, it's an enjoyable character study and a nice reminder that Schwartzman has a nice range.

    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.

    Ex Machina 2015

    ★★★★ Watched 17 Apr, 2015

    I saw this alone so there was no moment to converse openly about the implications of the Singularity and what it means to be conscious and "alive" - worthwhile topics evoked by this.

    Rather amazing CG and great performances all around. I read a lot of reviews having issue with the machine being female and, thus, automatically a fetish object... Not so sure about that myself. It may say more about the reviewer than the film implies. Tho I guess that's another topic best wrestled when viewed with others.
