    97/100 review. Among the many things that make me love this movie, allow me to mention two here:

    1. The fact that it was booed at Cannes because the initial press members/critics decided they didn't want to understand the ending.

    2. The fact that Olivier Assayas just doesn't fucking care that the time and date stamp continuity on Kristen Stewart's phone doesn't make sense.

    We’d better not be done with this beautiful ray of sunshine. Not by a longshot.

    So I was able to sneak a look at the finished film, and I have to say that it is absolutely...

  • Nightcrawler




    Engrossing and skeevy, Nightcrawler, the directorial debut of Dan Gilroy, is an uncomfortable but obsessive and deeply fascinating look at what TV news could be under the surface of well lit sets and playful banter. Jake Gyllenhaal is spellbinding, a transformation both physical and psychological that should have been nominated for the Oscar. The rest of the cast -- like Rene Russo and Riz Ahmed -- are great. Gilroy's script is solid, but characters feel underdeveloped, although in the grand scheme of things, detachment is minimal.
