    Newness

    Devastating for couples, reassuring for single losers like me that I've nothing to be ashamed of. Jokes aside, this was insane as hell. I honestly don't know what to make of it. This is the first film I've seen from Drake Doremus, and now I'm more hesitant than ever to check out the rest of his work if they're going to be as hard hitting as this.

    A Simple Plan

    ★★★★

    A Simple Plan is an impressive 180 turn from Sam Raimi. It was unfairly compared to Fargo, giving people at the time an excuse to dismiss this little gem. Fargo is the better movie in terms of originality and execution, but I found A Simple Plan to be just as unsettling.

    During winter in a small-town, three buddies accidentally stumble upon 4 million dollars in an abandoned aircraft. Predictably, greed gets the best of these men, driving them to madness,…
