  • Miss Sloane

    Miss Sloane

    ★★★★

    "Career suicide's not so bad when you consider the alternative is suicide by career."

    This has to be Jessica Chastain's best performance, right? Wow. Not only is Miss Sloan an extremely underrated film, but it's one of the best political thrillers out there - period. While gun control and other politically-devisive issues are paramount to the storyline, they're also some of the least interesting elements of the film.

    Me: "You are both fucking insane and this is what art is all about."

    Good Time

    ★★★★½

    Do you guys remember how all of those teenage girls went crazy over Robert Pattinson during the Twilight years? Well that's how I feel about him after seeing Good Time. This is my favorite film of the year (so far) and it's gonna be tough to beat. Consider me an official Safdie whore.

    In Good Time, main character Connie (played to perfection by Pattinson) is a self-absorbed con-man who uses those around him for his own personal gain. This includes…
