    Knight of Cups

    ★★½

    Tried as I did to re-watch Terrence Malick's Knight of Cups with a more open mind, I still could not get past the at times laughably over the top pretentious style. While this film certainly has an interesting, fragmented style that Malick has been dedicating the latter part of his career on, but this one just does not have a compelling story to back it up, and becomes increasingly bizarre in it's at times disorienting barrage of images, memories and…

    The Wolf of Wall Street

    ★★★★★

    "You know, when you sail on a boat fit for a Bond villian, sometimes you need to play the part, right?"

    This quote taking from a riveting scene around halfway mark of the film, perfectly sums up the absolute insanity of this film.

    While I can understand that some will find the absurd excess of this film distasteful, The Wolf of Wall Street is Scorsese firing on all cylinders creating a lurid epic chronicling the grotesque debauchery of Jordan Belfort…

    ★★★★½

    About as weird, arty and completely inaccessible as big budget Viking epics are gonna get in this current filmmaking landscape, and goddamnit do I have huge respect for everyone involved for doing just that!

    Everything Everywhere All at Once

    ★★★★

    Really fun, really inventive filmmaking working within fairly established tropes and concepts. Michelle Yeah is obviously already a huge star, but it was awesome watching her in a film like this, James Hong is already a living legend and shows why he is such an iconic character actor and to see Ke Huy Quan back on the big screen again was an absolute joy, the fact that he hasn't been cast in the new Indy movie is a travesty.

    Da 5 Bloods

    I am so surprised at how many good reviews this film has been getting, it is by far the worst Spike Lee film I have seen and this is coming from a long time fan.

    This is a film that would have you believe is telling a worthwhile, political story about the black experience in the Vietnam War, which actually might have been interesting. Instead we get a completely one dimensional, somehow jingoistic, hamfisted, amateurish reimagining of Treasure of the…

  • Nightcrawler

    Nightcrawler

    ★★★★

    A very darkly funny piece of work exploring the moral vacuity and desperation of the tabloid media, with Gyllenhaal truly inhabiting the role of Lou Bloom, one of the most fantastically despicable sociopaths in recent film history, in what will certainly go down as one the best roles in an impressive filmography.

    This is a case in which a physical transformation on the actor's part truly adds to the character, Gyllenhaal's gaunt, wiry figure immediately sets you at unease, his…
