    Well, you look terrific!

    Well, I feel terrible!

    I have to say, this film feels in every possible way like it was made for me. There are very few aspects of a film that I enjoy more than a colloquial, yet pithy conversation in a film—let alone when a film is entirely comprised of the sort. Well-written dialogue is just unbelievably enjoyable, and why I think most people have such a strong admiration for Tarantino films. This, however, is truly…

    Ye could use a smoke after this fixin'!

    What an outrageously delightful film. I watched this days ago and have been trying to decipher a somewhat articulate rationale in the meantime. Totally personal, but this is the way I think it's meant to be perceived.

    After my initial viewing, I had the rather generic mindset that both Thomas and Thomas simply go insane during their shift manning the lighthouse. That Pattinson just loses it and that's all there is to…

    Roadrunner: A Film About Anthony Bourdain

    Apart from only a few, actors, musicians, and other similar larger-than-life personalities, Anthony Bourdain remains one of the most shocking celebrity deaths, ever, for me—truly on the level of the likes of Philip Seymour Hoffman, Heath Ledger, and Paul Walker as a comparison (for me) in the world of cinema.

    Throughout the years his success as a celebrity chef and worldwide traveler amassed an impressive audience. Though like most fans, I gravitated towards his personality, which I'd say rested juxtaposed…

    Bandits

    ★★★★

    Well, I will say, after catching the latter half of Blood and Wine (which is one I'm strangely fond of—love seeing Michael Caine as a chain-smoking baddie), I had no intention of seeing this through, let alone reviewing it. But the fact that I've never heard of it despite the prominent actors involved and the director at hand, I had to see it through purely for the curiosity of its suspect potential.

    It's rather fascinating to watch Bruce Willis when…

    Dead Man's Letters

    ★★★★★

    *Disclaimer: this review is purposely spoiler-free; I realize several of my mutuals have this on their watchlist; my rating and approval is based on my love for this sort of subject matter*

    Starting with his most notable work, I finally managed to watch one of my most anticipated films from the ever-elusive, Konstantin Lopushansky. Serving under Andrei Tarkovsky after graduating in 1979, he worked as a production assistant for Stalker with the legendary director. And from watching Dead Man's Letters,…

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

    A remarkable film experience. Much like 2001: A Space Odyssey, Stalker truly is an experience. Similar to Kubrick's film, Stalker leaves a lot for interpretation. Marked as spoiler, I'd like to dive into the most interesting and thought-provoking aspects of the film, rather than revel in admiration. This is for the most part my own interpretation. I'm going to jump right in by asking pressing questions followed by my own assessment.
