    Honestly, it makes my list of favorite films of all time. Couldn’t tell you what placement had yet but it’s a definite favorite.

    Just a really cool kid’s film. Nothing more special then that.

    I like the message behind the film but most of the execution was poor delivered.

    It’s been more then a year since I’ve seen this. I knew I needed a good rebound after the massive undertaking of Satantango. 

    This movie always flows like no other. I notice a lot of the actors had such perfect emotions on their face throughout the entire movie.

    You know all that boring stuff of watching a character walk from one location to another? You don’t? oh yeah editing exists (but not for this movie) It keeps its cinematography levels high throughout every single shot. And when the camera does a nice and swift move here and there, I leapt up and cheered. But I don’t need to watch the “security tape time” of nothing happened... FOR MINUTES ON END!

    Pretty average film. I remember liking a lot as a kid. Then again young will always be dumber then the me in the future. It’s science.

    Me: Mike Mills. That’s my favorite flavor of ice cream.

    My date: I can tell you don’t get out often. Do you?

    Me: You’re right. I should watch Beginnings again.

  • The Way Back

    The Way Back

    ★★★½

    It explores some interesting idea behind leadership. About half way through, I said to myself “this is just an alternate universe where Shooter from Hoosiers (Dennis Hopper’s character) is the head coach but his son...” whoa there. Let’s keep it spoiler free 😉

  • Sin Nombre

     The way it was structured fits the poster of the train they are sitting on. And it’s official City of God has a brother. (it’s this film👍)

    The final part to a damn near perfect trilogy. Watching a man suffer as much as he did, it was one of the best feelings when the end came along and Apu had giving me hope for my own life.

    I’m gonna say it now... I’m sorry Fallen Angels... this, this right here, is my favorite WKW film. (as far as his best, idk. Gonna have to rewatch some in order to know for sure) Here are some reasons:

    Visual
    I believe this is the most beautiful looking I have ever seen. Every single frame is a dream to drink it in. AH. Every shot has depth. The black and white scenes are a…
