    ★★★★½

    I think what I loved most was how self-aware this movie is, it sometimes stops and talks to viewer to explain things. Probably the most entertaining way to explain the global financial crisis I've seen.

    I really liked this movie. A thriller that catches you off guard with how raw it is, and doesn't spell everything out for you. Details a reality people have faced in the real world in a way that truly makes you wish you could do something about it.

    The Secret Life of Walter Mitty

    ★★★½

    Beautifully shot and creative typography throughout makes for a feel good movie that suits everyone. Loved the Iceland/Greenland locations. The 'dream' sequences were interesting at first but became increasingly frustrating over time. Otherwise, a really good watch.

    The colors. The cinematography. The quirky story. Everything was amazing. I can't believe I hadn't seen this before now - Wes Anderson's weird style is always amazing.
