This film is a masterpiece. I don't put that label on just anything. A film has to move me in a particular way and have certain qualities to get me to call it a masterpiece.
First off I'd like to go over my first viewing of this film and some background. My girlfriend is Polish, as is her family. We share a similar taste in film (which I love) After being with her for a wonderful 8 months I got…
Home Before Dark (1958) is a hidden gem.

I've been wanting this kind of Batman film my entire life. I grew up loving the character of Batman. I watched the awesome Batman: The Animated Series all the time and bought every action figure I could find.

This is one of the best films I've ever seen. Christopher Nolan... this might be his best film. This film is 99% dialogue and it's absolutely thrilling. The cast is stacked.

I'm destroyed... easily the best film of the year. Maybe the century.
