    Juliane Moore expresses the subtle, almost invisible misery can lurk in an average marriage and hide behind the most expensive doors.

    The scope of the inspection of global toxins, environmental awareness and the self-help cult is breathtaking and chilling.  Best movie I’ve seen in a long time.

    I truly think this film can be closely watched and every character scrutinized.  The script is tight and acting on-point.

    I’m ashamed to admit: I barely made it through this slow burn of a genre horror critique.  Halfway I turned it off, came back to it and was blown away by how lured in I was by the second half.  Still have my issues with Von Trier (almost all his films are arrogant in style) but he really cares about art and film and here all is on display.

    ★★★★½

    Standard setting biopic that goes to the trouble of exploring a complicated man who lived an interesting life. It wasn't one situation or trauma that this film sets out to examine but a series that haunted Malcolm to the end. He wasn't a saint but he was, by his own words, a man.

    I used to think Do The Right Thing was Spike Lee's most masterful joint. I was wrong. Do The Right Thing, Jungle Fever, Clockers, Malcolm X all…

    ★★★★

    One of the most beautifully shot and executed horror films I've ever seen. The soundtrack is almost useless. Too over the top and actually took me out of the film several times.

    But I'd watch it again. The use of memory, terror, elaborate death scenes are unforgettable.
