    Maybe the worst shot film I have ever seen

    The New World

    ★★★½

    Almost evenly split between the dialectical Malick of The Thin Red Line and the flat bystanding of late films (the love triangle of Rolfe and Smith)

    I can't even order off
    a menu, she says.
    It's okay
    at least you have the most beautiful
    hat in all of Brooklyn.

    ★★★★½

    A film that still feels like it was shot yesterday with a script that has lost none of its crackle. I think the last twenty minutes are a bit of a letdown, as is the silly resolution to the "Rosebud" ending. It's not a particularly interesting political work but sure speaks some truths about the media. Timeless.
