  • Scent of a Woman

    Scent of a Woman

    ★★★★

    This early 90s movie highlights what's wrong with leaders even in 2020.

    Entertaining story, loaded with signature whoo-ah's and a young Phillip Seymour Hofmann.

    If you're tangled up, just tango on.

  • Trumbo

    Trumbo

    ★★★★

    “Dad am I a communist?“
    “If you had a sandwich and your friend had no lunch, what would you do?”

    I just can't understand why this movie gets such a bad rap. Engaging story. Good acting.

  • Mulholland Drive

    Mulholland Drive

    ★★★★

    What?!

    Maybe this is a film about broken dreams that passes in the city of dreams.

    Not sure — and even 19 years later I don't think the casting knows that either.

  • Knives Out

    Knives Out

    ★★★★

    So this is the Rian Johnson I only read about. I liked it.

  • The Two Popes

    The Two Popes

    ★★★★

    In times where polarised opinions can't coexist, this becomes a necessary movie — a informal class on dealing with differences.

    Pryce, Hopkins and Meirelles at their very best.

  • City of God

    City of God

    ★★★★

    Highly immersive even 17 years later.
    Photography. And. Camera. Moves.

  • Big Fish

    Big Fish

    ★★★★

    This review may contain spoilers. I can handle the truth.

    Lessons on keeping life fun and imaginative at any age.


    Possibly the Forrest Gump of a younger generation.
