    ★★★★★

    This is the THIRD Akira Kurosawa film to break into my top films of all time, IKIRU is a very meaningful story about a man dying of stomach cancer who, in his final moments, searching for purpose and meaning.

    I may not have stomach cancer, but I do feel very connected to the story and protagonist and his situation through my own battles with depression. I often feel like my life is on autopilot and I am just coasting along…

    ★½

    Welcome, my Darklings.

    I knew damn well what I was getting myself into. B-Horror trash directed by DANZIG? I mean, come on...

    Inherent Vice

    ★★★★★

    "You're going to want to get good and fucked up before this meal."

    In this psycho-noir epic tale, Paul Thomas Anderson delivers a thick cloud of deep dialogue and intense performances than entrances it's viewers.
    The narrative by Joanna Newsom is wonderful and a welcome addition to the style.
    As usual, Jonny Greenwood's score is spot on with the overall tone.

    Paul Thomas Anderson proves again that he is one of the best working today, and Inherent Vice is a unique addition to his arsenal.
