    Being John Malkovich

    ★★★★½

    I have never been affected by a movie quite like this before. I feel a similar way to how Anomalisa left me.

    Starting off with Kaufman’s regular bizarre and confusing filmmaking style (which is not necessarily a bad thing), I expected another Synecdoche, New York. Lets just say by half way through, this was an entirely different film than the first act in my opinion. A new favorite film of mine.

    ★★★★

    As cool as some people may falsely think it is, the ghetto is NOT a fair place for anybody. As stated in Hoop Dreams, basketball was the ticket for many young African American men to get out of the ghetto.

    This documentary shows both the family and the sport they rely on to have an opportunity to escape from their financial issues. It truly is an important movie and actually quite good. I do wish it was a little more personal but there really isn’t much else I could complain about. I enjoyed the interviews in this a lot.

    Scorsese's best film since Taxi Driver. This is Scorsese's second best film. 


    This is the single most gut wrenching, poetic, beautiful and greatest film I have ever witnessed.

    At the end of the film I fell on my knees and had no fucking words for Martin Scorsese. Perhaps his best film, coming from someone who worships and unbelievably accurately needs the film Taxi Driver.

    It would be repulsive, insulting, but most of all selfish to call this film "boring" or…

    Manchester by the Sea

    ★★★★½

    I love living in Massachusetts. It's a very calm and beautiful place. Sometimes things are not like that. 


    The most human film of 2016, Casey Affleck is my favorite working actor right now possibly.

    Manchester by the Sea is an emotional and raw film. A very quiet and destructive film about the past. See this in theaters.

    I am almost convinced that 2016 is the greatest year for film of the 2000s.
