    Conan the Destroyer

    ★★★★

    I LOVE this goddamn movie, the second of the two original Conan films starring Arnie. I legit don't get why this doesn't have a higher user rating. Witness:

    Grace Jones. Period. But Grace Jones with a tail. Grace Jones head-butting people with a metal forehead shield. Grace Jones showing another woman how to fight with her weapon. Telling said woman if you want a man, just "grab him and take him!"

    Basil Poledouris's epic score. No subtleties belong in this…

  • Nocturnal Animals

    Nocturnal Animals

    ★★½

    Basically this movie is about a heartbroken dude (Jake Gyllenhaal) who wrote an ultraviolent novel with a metaphor for how the break-up made him feel. He sends it to ex-wife and heartbreaker, Susan (Amy Adams), who becomes emotionally engaged with the story and the state of her own life after she moved on from him. She's ultra-chic and on-the-surface-rich, disillusioned with her art curating life (because she should have been an artist, see, instead of becoming her mother). Maybe I've…

    Wings of Desire

    ★★★½

    Alias Grace

    ★★★★

    Sarah Gadon's face is everything in this series; my favorite scene remains the first, where her expression shifts to match the perceptions of both those who condemn and those who support her. I can't even begin to delve into the ways in which Alias Grace is relevant now and likely always will be.

    More proof that Margaret Atwood (nice cameo!), Sarah Polley, and Mary Harron are the shit.

  • Godless

    Godless

    ★★½

    A frustrating case of false advertising, Godless is a pretty standard Western with some conspicuously pretty shots (riders crossing a stream! our hero literally riding off into the sunset!) and few surprises. So many opportunities are lost as the central characters remain violent white men with "complicated" back stories. Some women are characterized better than others (I wanted to know more about the woman running the hotel; meanwhile, crazy, naked German lady gets a last minute "fleshing out" in the…
