    Twin Peaks: The Return


    5 stars isn’t enough...

    A masterpiece that defies categorisation.

    "This is the water, and this is the well. Drink full, and descend. The horse is the white of the eyes, and dark within,"

    Starship Troopers


    Way ahead of its time, just like the book it is based one.

    Hard to believe this film is 20 years old.

  • Possession



    I had to save the best for Halloween.

    Possession is a masterpiece of cinema, not only of horror. 

    Isabelle Adjani won best actress at Cannes for this... i’m not sure there is an award worthy of this performance, she takes intensity to a whole new level here. 

    Loses none of its impact on repeat viewings, in my case there will be many.

  • Miami Vice

    Miami Vice


    “Leave now. Life is short. Time is luck.”

    Damn, how did i miss this underrated gem of a movie, thank you letterboxd for bringing this film to my attention, i found it ranked high on Michael Mann lists here and now i know why.

    Miami Vice is a moody, dark, visually poetic art movie masquerading as a crime drama and it’s good to see people starting to appreciate this film 10 years on now expectations of the time are stripped…
