    Essential viewing, this documentary hit all of my emotions in its runtime.

    Getting to hear from the film's subjects at SIFF was powerful, and something I'll have to expand on more when I'm not busy frantically applying to jobs in Seattle.

    After the Storm

    ★★★½

    First film I saw at SIFF. Gorgeous, honest, with great performances, but I am so fucking tired of films about deadbeat men that it couldn't charm me.

    The Imitation Game

    ★★

    Every time I stop and think about this film, I have to lower its rating half a star.

    I just can't fathom why someone decided to take the fascinating life story of Turing and turn it into this cliche sleeping-pill of a biopic.

  • Poltergeist

    Poltergeist

    ★★★★

    This shouldn't be scary anymore because of the way the effects have aged, but it still got under my skin. Probably because of the curse associated with the filming? Plus that f#cking clown doll. But at the end of the day, Poltergeist is just a really beautifully made movie. The final shot, for example, is a perfect ending.
