Interestingly which, Sputnik makes me want to watch more Russian Sci-fi.
Sputnik makes some interesting thematic toward the end. Nonetheless, it was a refreshing, restrained piece of sci-fi/horror truly benefits from being set and made in Russia.
I'm honestly blown away. I can't believe it took me this long to finally cross this off my list. Ang Lee is undeniably a master at intertwining genres and metaphors.
Eat Drink Man Woman is seemingly so simple in tone, but under the surface is a complex, layered picture of the intricacies of food, family, and love. None feel more important than the others.
100th new movie of 2020!
Like a game of Oregon trail with the pace set to grueling, Whiplash packs more adrenaline than a summer action blockbuster.
Miles Teller and JK Simmons drum out an unbelievable two hour duet, playing beautifully off each other without missing a fucking beat. This film often draws comparisons to Black Swan, which is understandable, but I NEVER would have thought Whiplash would be the more intense of the two.
The characters are perfectly unlikable, self-centered, and vain, which all add up to some top notch, hard hitting, sweat drenched, blood soaked drama.
