    Au Hasard Balthazar


    Something didn't quite click here with me, and I will absolutely take the blame for that. My focus was off and I found it hard to connect. It's very possible it was just an off film for me, but I'll give Bresson the benefit of the doubt based on A Man Escaped and L'Argent.
    I'm still in it.

  • Saw IV

    Saw IV


    Saw IV sorta rewrites Saw III a bit and that's really weird, and it definitely manages to overload the audience with tiny little details the way that these films do more and more, but I actually think it worked better than the previous version did because Rigg's story is engaging. Unexpected.

    It Follows


    I can't believe it's been over two years since I first saw this in theaters. I've been preaching the holy word of It Follows ever since that fateful day, and it feels so good to be able to confirm just how right I was then.
    Mitchell has such a firm grip of pacing, and the tension literally never stops due to how "it" works. Gorgeous cinematography that manages to not turn Detroit into full ruin porn and the masterful Disasterpeace electronic score only add to this modern horror masterpiece.

    The Great Beauty


    At this point, its already a cliché to say that Sorrentino is like a modern Fellini, but I can't get around it. This film is so utterly beautiful and I'm still in a trance.
