    Kind of reminds me of what's happening in the world right now. Pretty twisted stuff

    For the love of all that is holy, just watch Welcome to New York instead.

  • The Driller Killer

    The Driller Killer

    ★★★½

    Bold choice of Ferrara to adapt a Brainbombs song to celluloid.
    Can definitely see this being an influence on the Safdie brothers' work in both its derelict depiction of New York City and creation of oppressive social environments.

  • The Intern

    The Intern

    ★★★½

    The Intern's discourse is centred around the generational gap between baby boomers and millennials, with much of the humour here being derived from the former traversing the spaces of the latter—both literally and metaphysically—with the true-to-life depiction of said spaces particularly bolstering the film's case, especially outside of its target audience. De Niro's performance here (which is fantastic in its own right) definitely deserves some second thought in the wake of The Irishman.

  • Catch Me If You Can

    Catch Me If You Can

    ★★★★

    Catch Me If You Can is simultaneously Spielberg's most forward-thinking film and the one most summative of his œuvre—I think it's safe to say that his toying with genre reached its peak here.

  • Black Christmas

    Black Christmas

    ★★½

    Very much indebted to Eli Roth (the campus activism is also used as a driving narrative force in The Green Inferno) sans the political apathy that makes Roth such a successful filmmaker. Sophia Takal has likely read too much Margaret Atwood for her own good.
