    A Moment of Innocence

    ★★★★★

    I really try to be more stingy with the old 5 star button, but dammit, films like this one -- one's that are so above top tier in what they accomplish -- just demand it.

    "A moment of innocence" succeeded in just furthering my wonder of what the Iranian people exactly posses inside of them to be able to do make perfection like this over and over again! I mean, first your Kiarostami with his impeccableness in stuff like "Certified…

    Kingsman: The Golden Circle

    ★★★½

    We live in an age where it's possible to have Elton John, and Collin Firth co-bitch-slap a robot dog with a bowling ball... What els is there left for me to see now that wouldn't pale in comparison?

    Ruiz has once again shattered all expectations. I really thought anything that I'll see from him since my watching of the masterpiece "Manoel's Destinies", would just feel like a total let-down. But actually, the opposite is true; this could any day stand up to the former.

    "City of Pirates" is a perplexing dream that I could easily see upsetting anyone not into the whole surrealism thang. It's very hard to grasp, and follows anything but a straight narrative; so much…
