    We Need to Talk About Kevin

    ★★★★

    Third Lynne Ramsay movie viewed in April - all have been great. I’m a fan of the fragmented style of cutting here, something that was done in her latest ‘You Were Never Really Here’ as well.

    Tilda Swinton is amazing as always. Wish Ezra Miller did more movies. John C. Reilly feels miscast however, didn’t get any chemistry between him & Swinton, and I always think of him as a funny guy that I couldn’t shake watching this.


    Morvern Callar next!

  • Andre the Giant

    Andre the Giant

    ★★★½

    It always felt Andre The Giant was being exploited and turned into a freak show due to his enormous size. It gave him his career, but you could almost touch the sadness he carried, underneath the surface. Same feeling when Shep Fairey turned him into a street art icon. He was a gentle giant that just wanted to be normal. Touching how much he meant to Hogan and Vince McMahon and how loved, he was to be people around him.

    ★★★★½

    The best coming of age / road movie ever? It's up there. Sasha Lane is a force of nature. Probably the best performance by Shia LaBeouf as well. Eclectic soundtrack too, mixing the Boss Suicide cover 'Dream Baby Dream' with Mazzy Stars 'Fade Into You' with Rihanna, ILoveMakonnen and wasn't that scene towards the end an homage to the classic bus scene from 'Almost Famous'?

    Our Day Will Come

    ★★★½

    Redheads against the world on a road trip. Vincent Cassel turning into one of my favorite actors.
