    ★★★

    I didn't buy the complete 180 that Stanton's character did at one point in the movie, and that was on my mind for awhile. However, the film was beautifully shot. Excellent framing, composition, and use of colors by Wenders. This is poetry for the screen, folks. And it takes place in the beautiful landscape of Texas.

    What Ever Happened to Baby Jane?

    ★★★★½

    For me, I just kept thinking about the Old Hollywood passing over into the new. I think this film showcases this transition. Perhaps the best performance by a female that I've ever seen. The dramatic tension, irony, and vileness of the ladies create a gothic psychological horror for the ages and one of the best films that I've watched this year.

    ★★★

    This film doesn't say anything new. We get it, war is hell. It does touch on the personal side of war. A bunch of souls killing other souls. The captains are just as scared as the privates. The imagery is nice and visually it's well-executed.

    To Have and Have Not

    ★★★

    Lauren Bacall is lethal. "You just put your lips together and blow." I've come to realize and appreciate Hawkes subtle sense of humor and directorial style. He made fun movies with fun characters that you want to hang out with.
