    Gone Baby Gone

    ★★★½

    This review may contain spoilers. I can handle the truth.

    Gone Baby Gone questions our morality in a certain way that it is ambiguous. The abduction was conducted with a positive outlook so as to provide a good life for the child.

    How does a man who is a vegan put on this much weight? Joaquin Phoenix is the husky voiced hunk of a man we should all aspire to be.

    You Were Never Really Here is a hardcore psychological thriller and beautifully created. Phoenix is a character actor who seems to have studied his character to the depth and produced a magnificent performance. Some shots are really radical and astounding. The movie is worthy of its score to say the least.

    Whiplash

    ★★★★★

    If they ever do an R rated Spider-Man, I want J.K. Simmons to be recast as the R rated J. Jonah Jameson. He had deservedly won the Oscar for this performance.

    Chazelle and his love for Jazz is ever so resonant in this movie.
