  • Crash 2004

    ★★½ Rewatched 01 Mar, 2015 1

    Crash, or what I feel now would be the more appropriately titled Paul Haggis' Everyone is Racist is probably my most important re-watch since I joined Letterboxd. I originally saw it in theaters back in 2004 and I absolutely loved it. I guess I thought most people shared my love, but not long after I joined the site I started noticing quite a bit of hate for this film that I loved so much. I read the negative reviews, but…

  • A History of Violence 2005

    ★★★★ Rewatched 28 Feb, 2015

    This re-watch was a little sad for me. You see A History of Violence was one of my few 5 star films, and like with so many before it, I felt compelled to lower my rating after this most recent re-watch. It's very rare that any film holds that top rating for me. I still love the film.

  • Looper 2012

    Fucking brilliant!

    Looper is easily the best film I've seen this year! I loved everything about it! I was in awe from start to finish. The directing, performances, and plot are all top notch. Pierce Gagnon pratical steals the show as Cid with the best child performance I've seen since Haley Joel Osment in The Sixth Sense. I teared up at one point because I was so happy with what I was seeing. I can't recommend this film highly enough and I think most people will love it.
