  • Borg vs McEnroe

    Borg vs McEnroe


    Amazing character study.

    I’ve long admired LaBeouf’s talents, and though they are firing here, Sverrir Gudnason’s portrayal of Björn Borg is so intimate and engaging, even with the little of words he says, that he steals the show for me.

    If you’re in it for the tennis, you’re mistaken. This gets to who these men were behind just their names, and is honestly the best way this story could have been told.

    Congrats to Janus Metz on making his first narrative feature a great one.

    The Seventh Seal


    While waiting in line to buy my ticket at the theatre this was showing, an elderly man approached me and asked “Are you seeing The Seventh Seal?” After telling him I was, he said he had an extra ticket and handed it to me. I didn’t want this moment to be forgotten, so I decided to share it on here.

    Sir, thank you for your kindness, I promise to pass it on.

    The Age of Innocence


    DDL does what he always does, continue to be the living embodiment of a human born with a gift, and the fortune to display it time and time again.

    This film is beautiful on all accounts. Scorsese knows how to make damn good films, and this one is now one of my favs of his.

    Lynne Ramsay and Tilda Swinton are queens. The sound design is fantastic.
