  • The Lobster

    The Lobster

    ★★★★

    Although idiosyncrasy eventually gives way to convention, The Lobster garners laughs with deadpan humor and well-timed physical comedy; evoking Logan's Run with a zoological twist, it's uneven, but brilliant.

    Rewatched for Season 5 of Enter the Void

  • Heavy Metal

    Heavy Metal

    ★★★

    Heavy Metal exists where He-Man and Aqua Teen Hunger Force collide, forming a bizarre—and adult—animated film that lacks in story but suffices as decent late night fodder due to some out-of-left-field laughs.

  • Nightcrawler

    Nightcrawler

    ★★★★½

    Voyeuristic pleasures abound in first-time writer/director Dan Gilroy's sleek and stylish Nightcrawler, a darkly comedic rags to riches story centered around a sociopathic opportunist who is nothing short of mesmerizing.

  • Eyes Wide Shut

    Eyes Wide Shut

    ★★★

    The tantalizing and divisive Eyes Wide Shut commits an utterly electrifying 20 minutes to film, but surrounds it with 2+ hours of repetitive, drawn out dialogue—it strangely both encourages and discourages repeat viewings.
