    The Night


    Why do I like these kinds of films?

    Slap a camera down on a street corner, throw a sad song over the footage in the last 5 minutes, call it a day.

    I'll be here. Lapping it up.

  • Stressed Out

    Stressed Out


    A little too abrupt of an ending, but I'll tell you this...I think I'm going to seek out more micro-shorts. I like the fact that I can take a quick break from work to sneak in a film.

    Although I don't agree with everything that Slavoj Žižek has to stay, it is hard for me not to love the guy and extend a friendly wipe of the nose and tug of the shirt in solidarity.

    And so on and so on.

    Sweet Jesus, Jake Gyllenhaal brings it in this film as Louis Bloom. I was completely convinced that he was a sociopath from his gaze that holds for just a little too long, to his highly analytical and fast talking dialogue that just sounds like Bloom is attempting to sound normal, to his love for matriarchal figures that he can manipulate. Actually, scratch that, he is somehow able to manipulate every single person in this film.

    It shouldn't be a surprise…
