    12 Years a Slave

    ★★★★½

    Great movie. Tough to watch at times. Chiwetel Ejiofor is fantastic.

    All Good Things

    ★★★½

    Based on the true story of Robert Durst, who I honestly didn't know a whole lot about. After this movie, the director made The Jinx, a documentary about the same subject. Curious to check that out.

    Ryan Gosling plays the lead, here called David Marks. He's quite good. You can see him get darker as the movie goes along. Kirsten Dunst plays his ill-fated wife.

    Great supporting cast. Good story. Just felt like it was missing something to put it over the top for me. Hoping to check out the full documentary soon.

    Blacksmith Scene

    ★★★

    Considered to be the first film with "acting" as three men hammer an anvil and pass a beer around. I call shenanigans on the guy on the left. He's clearly faking drinking the beer.

    The Lobster

    ★★★★

    After seeing Killing of a Sacred Deer, I thought I was prepared for the weirdness that would be coming. I was wrong. This is a strange flick.

    The Lobster takes place in a future where single people are tracked down, and taken to a "hotel". There they are given a period of time to fall in love. If they don't, they get turned into an animal of their choosing. Also, it seems like they need to have some weird trait…
