    The more I write the lesson attention my logs get so I’ll keep it very simple and short: See this movie if you have not seen it. Or else you are missing out… BIG TIME!

    ★★★★

    The story of Fletcher Christian and Captain William Bligh is quite easily one of my favorite stories in history. The book is incredible, but what really sparked my interest in all of it was the OG 1935 movie with Charles Laughton and Clarke Gable. I will die praising that movie, but this film does not disappoint at all. It is fiercely led by a cast of familiar faces in their younger years: Mel Gibson, Anthony Hopkins, Daniel Day Lewis, Liam…

    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 "disappointing"…

    I love living in Massachusetts. It's a very calm and beautiful place, but no matter where you are - 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 2010s.
