    Lost Highway

    ★★★½

    This is a challenging film for me to review. It's bizzare, the plot is very symbolic and hard to summarize, and I just have mixed feelings about the overall experience. I'll try and do my best though.

    Lost Highway follows Fred Medison, a jazz musician (saxophonist) who lives with his wife, Renee. One day the start getting weird tapes that couldn't have been filmed without someone getting inside their house, and things only get weirder and weirder. Again, it's a…

    The Shining

    ★★★★½

    "I'm sorry to differ with you sir, but *you*...are the caretaker. You've always been the caretaker. I should know, sir. I've *always* been here."

    The Shining just became my favorite Kubrick film up to this date, and one of my favorite films in general.
