    A Nightmare on Elm Street

    ★★★★

    Vintage Craven. That tongue through the telephone scene 👌🏽😧

    I really love how this film and Scream make you feel at home in their world with the teenage corniness and knack for well timed comedy. Then comes the horror. In an undeniably creepy, hair raising premise. I still don't know what the fuck happened at the end.

    The Age of Innocence

    ★★★★★

    Society can be so disgusting when it dissuades you, insidiously, from what you love most. It's so so cruel.
    So can love not survive it?

    Perhaps it can. But just as memory or "abstractly, serenely.........a complete vision of all that he had missed", as Scorsese puts it. Cinema at its most heartbreakingly poetic.

    Just say I'm old fashioned. That should be enough. Says Newland Archer to his son as old memories of his age of innocence come rushing in —…
