    Trespass Against Us

    ★★★

    A crime-drama about a family of outlaws. The story falls a bit flat but at least they got Brendan Gleeson and Michael Fassbender playing father and son. Quite an excellent combo which saves a lot. Other strengths include some beautiful imagery and the score written by The Chemical Brothers.

    Another bunch of poor souls make terrible decisions that make no sense whatsoever, all for our entertainment. The film was alright, I guess. However, it has to be said that I recently saw the original in theaters and it's still much scarier than this.

    A classic. One of the greatest westerns of all time. One of the coolest films ever made.

    The last thirty minutes are just out of this world...

    What a wonderful rewatch. I always enjoyed the story, which is fast-paced and constantly amusing, but this time I was more invested in the characters and found the ending more moving than I did the first time around. I like Wes Anderson's visual style and Robert Yeoman's camerawork very much in this one, and the dialogue is fantastic. Ralph Fiennes is great, and I think M. Gustave is his finest role in years. This is my favorite Wes Anderson film so far. Easily.
