A menacing slow burn. Eyes Wide Shut didn't take the route I expected or even wanted but instead took it's own path. I think that's something to be celebrated in itself. Instilled with some truly captivating scenes and a paranoia filled soundtrack this film really did draw me into it's world. I wanted more answers by the time it ended but really I didn't expect them in the first place so it doesn't even matter.
Enter the Void is beautifully fucked up. Those long takes are something else entirely. The way the camera moves from location and in and out of characters is straight up brilliant. The psychedelic imagery and colours are unlike anything else on screen and I swear it must be the only film to ever talk about DMT. The movie is long and often slow but worth the time spent on it for sure. That ending will forever stay implanted in my mind. What a fucking journey.
Gone Girl is brilliant. David Fincher continues to prove that he is one of the best directors in the film industry today. It's enthralling from start to finish with it's fantastic performances and plot twists that change at all the right times. When a film like this leaves you pondering and speechless during the end credits it means it's done it's job perfectly.
"Wheres my fucking money?"
Comet is beautiful to look at. It's interesting, captivating and odd in all the right ways. Justin Long's speeches about the universe and our way of life may just be the best part about Comet as the films dialogue is fantastic. It's not a film that I would go out and recommend to everyone I know but it's pretty great and I'm happy I saw it.
