    Mon Oncle

    ★★★★★

    Such a joy, such a delightful masterpiece from Jacques Tati.
    A french Charlie Chaplin character is the brother to an ultra modern family whom he doesn't fit in with at all-though his nephew idolizes him.

    Stalker

    ★★★★½

    Bizarre and hypnotic film that feels like a fable plays like one of the more exciting works that Andrei Tarkovsky ever directed.
    At just shy of three hours in length the film seems to go by relatively quickly.
    The first half is rather exciting as the three men: the stalker, the writer, and the scientist; find their ways to sneak past guards and boundaries to get to the zone-a transformative and cinematic move that reaches as high as the moment…
