    Wild Tales

    ★★★

    Even though it has moment of brilliance (the road-rage and the wedding vignettes are the stuff of legends), the movie's main theme of revenge and how it turns people into animals is not a very novel nor very original theme.

    The best haunted house movie I've seen in a long time.

    The Third Man

    ★★★★★

    This subversion of the typical film noir is undeniably one of the greatest movies in cinematic history. The cinematography perfectly captures the melancholy and dread of post war vienna and the zither score is an appropriate antidote to the melodramatic orchestral scores that were most prominent in the 40s.

    The cast is superb, but is highlighted by a career best performance from Orson Welles, who plays a charismatic villain, that is both menacing and somewhat sympathetic.
