    Season of the Witch

    ★★

    A bored, unhappy suburban housewife gets mixed up in witchcraft and murder.

    A non- Zombie Romero film. You can tell from the camera shots that's it's him as they are very reminiscent of NOTLD. The actual film isn't much to write at home about. It's pretty hokey and I lost focus quite early on. Not terrible but i can't recommend.

    The family dynamics are handled really well, however I was never floored by what was onscreen.

    The Station Agent

    ★★★★½

    When his only friend dies, a man born with dwarfism moves to rural New Jersey to live a life of solitude, only to meet a chatty hot dog vendor and a woman dealing with her own personal loss.

    Second time watch of The Station Agent and I loved it as much as first time round. It's one of those films that even though not a lot happens it's great just to spend time with these characters in this setting. Peter…
