    The Last Waltz


    I mean it doesn’t really matter where you point the camera when this much talent is on stage.*

    *possible exceptions: Neil Diamond.

  • Amour



    I can’t really think of any other way to describe this film other than brutally tender.

    The Disciple


    An excellent exploration of musical purity, mythology, idolatry and the timeless problem of confusing loving an art with being talented at it.

  • The Naked Kiss

    The Naked Kiss


    Bad acting, god awful script and melodrama that makes Douglas Sirk look like Bresson. Two stars for some editing flair but this felt like an exploitation film with all the fun leached out.

    Tl,dr: I guess I don’t like pulp cinema
