    Sublime.
    Stellar cast, great cinematography, writing and score. Very well paced. This is an outstanding production that has a very classic feel to it. Definitely surpassed my expectations.
    Bravo Branagh

    Film #13 - City Lights

    Hm, I dont really know. I guess Chaplin is just not my thing. I mean some parts of it were great, but other parts i found pretty dull or annoying. There was also nothing that kept me invested. I had the same issues with Modern Times (which I have only watched half of)

    Film #10 - Vertigo

    Brilliant cinematography and direction. The use of color and the blocking of the scenes in this is unparalleled. Great lead performance by James Stewart.

    This film is very mysterious and has an uneasy, dreamlike vibe to it. Scottie is such a fascinating and complex protagonist. The tragedy and loss and his inability of letting go is portrayed superbly. Really liked the twist and mystery behind it. It is such a unique and amazing filmé.

    "You've never seen a miracle."

    WOW.

    As you all know, I love Blade Runner.
    And I loved this.
    A beautiful, poetic, touching, impressive return to the world of Blade Runner.
    Im still processing it all. Will watch it again as soon as possible and when I've collected my thoughts I'll attempt a full scale review.
    Certainly outstanding.

    By the way, for anyone wondering, the original Blade Runner is an absolutely required viewing.
