    ★★★★★

    This fuckin' shape-shifter... I get more from it with each viewing and somehow it's still a different experience each time. I focused on the stories we tell ourselves to justify our actions; the projections we make, if you will.

    ★★

    Promising start quickly dissipates into ashy thin air. WARNING: contains barbed-wire hysterectomy

    Autumn Leaves

    ★★★★½

    Underseen prime Aldrich that predates MARNIE and VERTIGO in which the suspense is made from working through human trauma. Noirish shadows and Aldrich's fractured mise-en-scene reflects its protagonists' psyches.

    We Need to Talk About Kevin

    ★½

    Lifetime movie as art film. Tilda can only gape so much. Give her a break. Something to be said about emotional, psychic connections between mother and son, just not in this film.
