  • Dunkirk

    Dunkirk

    ★★★★½

    Quick observation of DUNKIRK:

    Nolan once more exhibits inventive narrative by employing multiple timelines, POVs, & durations that intercut one another. 

    And it's bloody intense for the whole duration. Like keeping you on the edge of the seats!

    The ensemble of cast. MY GOD. From Tom Hardy, Mark Rylance, Cillian Murphy, Ken Brannagh, Fionn Whitehead and Harry Fucken Styles (for more than an hour).

    Hans Zimmer's score and Hoyte v Hoytema's cinematography like hell~

    Definitely one of the most satisfying movie this year. No lie.

  • The Invisible Guest

    The Invisible Guest

    ★★★

    The Invisible Guest a.k.a. Contratiempo has a decent gesture to manipulate audiences with series of lies and improbability to mend possibility. Layers of manipulation served to audiences are unpredictably predictable; and when it is, the film loses most of its credibility as a smart thriller to become a trying-too-hard-to-be-smart thriller.

  • Edge of Tomorrow

    Edge of Tomorrow

    ★★★½

    If you think Elysium's exoskeleton is formidable and Pacific Rim is heroically comical, you might get a glimpse of how Edge of Tomorrow looks.This film looks bluntly like a mash-up of modern sci-fi invasion but with massive rampage and clever, playful plot---it makes you feel like playing an arcade game with "almost" infinite restart button. Edge of Tomorrow has the potential of being this year's sleeper hit.

  • Being John Malkovich

    Being John Malkovich

    ★★★★★

    Amazing world, character, and narrative building from Charlie Kaufman with perfect direction from Spike Jonze is the main reason this film become a spike to cinema history. Along with Malkovich, stars like Cusack, Diaz, and Keener really shines in an appropriate way.
