    Clueless

    ★★★★★

    I’m stunned by how incredible this is. I had never seen it before, and usually would kick myself for having waited so long to watch it, but instead I’m thankful. Had I watched this years ago I’m not sure I would have appreciated how smart it is, probably wouldn’t have gotten a lot of the subtle jokes, and almost certainly wouldn’t have viewed it as a perfect 90s time capsule.

    Gone Girl

    Fincher continues to cement his god-like status with another astoundingly brilliant dark, complex mystery full of malice, beauty and topped off by some incredible acting. There's nothing specific I can pinpoint to say why this film is so amazing, because everything about it is stupendous. The narrative twists and turns like you wouldn't believe. The directing is, of course, excellent and, combined with the superb lighting (Fincher's love of yellow is on full display) and haunting soundtrack, gives off this…
