    The Thirteen Assassins


    Seven Samurai's leaner, meaner, less philosophical cousin.

    Long Day's Journey into Night


    Taking the best aspects of Kaili Blues and running with them. I'm not sure it would work outside of the theatrical experience, but that's not a real criticism of the film at all.

    Kind of feels like a cousin to Only God Forgives. Has anyone compared this to Apichatpong Weerasethakul's Tropical Malady yet? Or is everyone just going with the Mulholland Drive comparison?

    In retrospect, people laughing at the scene where billionaire Batman empathizes with immigrant Superman was probably a good indicator of America's downfall.
