    The Infiltrator

    ★★★

    A perfect example of how confident filmmaking can overshadow imperfections in a film. While The Infiltrator suffers from stilted pacing, some strange dialogue, and a bloated runtime, it still feels entertaining thanks to the taut direction and a great performance from Bryan Cranston.

    Up in the Air

    ★★★½

    While the narrative itself is a rather tired exploration of cynicism in opposition of romantic optimism, there is no denying the charm of this film. The cast is stellar, the writing is sharp, and the cinematography is gorgeous.

    No Country for Old Men

    ★★★★★

    A modern masterpiece. The Coen Brothers create a world filled with silence and then use Hitchcock-esque suspense to tear violent holes in said world.

  • Mad Max: Fury Road

    Mad Max: Fury Road

    ★★★★★

    Well damn. That was quite a film. Fury Road manages to be entertaining with its action and profound with its storytelling. It's not a "blow you away, make you rethink life" kind of film, but it does rip your eyes from their sockets and captivate you from start to finish.

    If that's not a mark of a masterpiece, I don't know what is.
