    In the realm of emotion, this is Martin Scorsese's most violent film.

    The Story of Film: An Odyssey

    ★★★★★

    A fully comprehensive 15 hour docu-series showing exactly what the title promises: The Story of Film.

    It's one of my absolute favorite documentaries and I wholeheartedly recommend it to any lover of the craft.

    This 6 and a half hour French mini-series is the definitive take on the novel.

    Here it is on YouTube!

  • The Man in the Iron Mask

    The Man in the Iron Mask

    ★★½

    On paper, this should be a masterpiece.

    The aging, yet iconic, Muskateers are played by Jeremy Irons, John Malkovich, Gabriel Byrne and to round it off, we have Gérard Depardieu as a depressed, hedonistic Porthos. Who would have thought that young Leo could be the weak link?

    Brought down by cliché direction and unfortunately doesn't say much with it's rich source material.

    BTW, If you haven't seen it, Depardieu starred in the French mini-series of The Count of Monte Cristo (another Alexandre Dumas novel) that same year.

    The Commuter

    ★★

    Beneath the thin dialogue, formulaic plot, and tacky CGI, lies what could have been an interesting action-thriller.
