    ★★★★★

    Quite possibly the greatest staged movie of all time, the amount of suspense that is created in one room over ninety minutes is unbelievable. Some of the best Hitchcock dialogue ever and one of it's greatest performances. Stewart's final speech is a masterclass.

    White Boy Rick

    ★½

    A bizarre attempt at a Wolf of Wall street type, "so crazy to be true" except with poorly written dialogue, a sad over reliance on shak-y cam, and honestly a very weak performance by newcomer Richie Meritt. An interesting story only emerges in the last 5 minutes and would be an interesting documentary if you started from there. McConaghuey is just McConaghuey-ing it up, and cannot save it.
