James Gunn is truly one of a kind.
Anarchy meets aesthetic greatness filled with unapologetic humor. Margot shows her best Quinn to date and Daniela Melchior totally steals the show as Ratcatcher 2. This may be the rise of a new DC cinematic landscape.
This is the one and only film that kept me quiet for a whole 5 mins after seeing it. I literally couldn't close my mouth, and yet there wasn't any sound coming out of it. Oldboy had such an impact on me that words are too little to describe that impact. Therefore this film is definitely in my top 3 films ever made. It belongs there because it has a massive ingredient that a lot of films seem to miss…
The greatest movies, the ones that stick with us, are those that hold up a mirror to the human condition and reflect something back at us that we too often manage to overlook. "Boyhood" is one of those movies, and with it Linklater proves he is among the best practitioners of that art.
There isn’t anything else quite like “Boyhood” in the history of cinema, although that wouldn’t matter one/fifth as much if it weren’t a moving and memorable viewing…
