Lobster, The (2015)
Couples rule in a post cruel world. If you don't find a mate they turn you into an animal. Its royal art of weirdness with little justification and a vivid imagination. Colin inherits a comedian's edge, puncturing the establishment in a catatonic state and making us laugh and cheer. Rachel Weisz keeps the heart of the film beating and Yorgos is crazy. 29-Mar-2020
Autopsy Of Jane Doe, The (2016)
The autopsy is comprehensive, the actors are aligned and the corpse is an eerily beautiful masterpiece. The mumbo jumbo is handled scientifically which excludes genius insanity being the harbinger of truth and sets some practical scares for us. 27-Mar-2020
The society is comprised of envy, maintenance, labor, guts and unification. Images remain in your head, long after you've dismissed them. The story is absolutely unique, the actors are natural and the suffering for/from abundance touches every base. Trimming would have propelled a much stronger impact but I couldn't stop watching every minute of its extensive length. 23-Mar-2020
Killing Of A Sacred Dear, The (2017)
Doctor feels responsible for causing the death of a teenage boys' father. He befriends him and his mother and integrates him into his own. The boy is a psychotic Jesus whose God has been bested by a doctor playing at God. Colin Farrell adds beautiful whisper to his lilt, calming us, confusing us and surprising us. Barry Keoghan is a vengeful prince ravaging the establishment and scary as fuck. Alicia Silverstone sucks good hands. Raffey Cassidy and Sunny Sulgic supply the perfect endorsement for burdening yourself with care one minute and smacks, the other. Nic holds it tight for the first hour, being logical and abiding but by the last hour she's tongue lashing and bitch slapping her character to heaven. Yorgos Lanthimos kept it artistic, chillingly precise, musically gripped and the giant balls to give us an OMG ending. 18-Mar-2020
Farewell, The (2019)
Family saying goodbye to a most adorable nana whose unaware she's dying. It is heritage that deigns not telling the patient they are terminal for fear it would exacerbate the symptoms. The Americanized part of the family are predisposed to tell because we have a need to finalize life but the elders would rather respect it by enjoying what's left of it. Awkwafina tempers the doubt, the confusion and the love as the film quietly distills it. 13-Mar-2020
Mother Nature has decided that women can no longer contribute to the evolution of mankind. It's an isolated island inhabited by creepy mamas and sad baby boys. Using sound effects in place of music generates desperate tension... the audacity to inflict torture on little boys is persistent... the idea of having children scares me but the idea of torturous birth is brutal... the setting is a boy's worst nightmare come true. The director keeps it focused, wide and captivating whilst gifting us an ender's reprieve. Cheers. 26-Feb-2020
Train To Busan (2016)
Zombie apocalypse gets an epic disaster movie treatment. I thought there was nothing left to do with a zombie but I was thrillingly surprised. The zombies are quick, staggering and evolved. Yeong Sang-ho returns as many things as he borrowed, lending it a huge amount of humanity and eagerly expanding the perception of claustrophobic spaces. Daddy mass clobbered, daddy major stepped up and daughter darling broke our hearts. 18-Feb-2020
Joaquin Phoenix is brilliant frightening insanity. The film weeps artistry and reflects on the development of poor mental health and the society that impedes its betterment. The swamp of darkness does not allow our villain joy. I believe that had he had a dance partner (Batman), the movie would have found some. 02-Feb-2020
Fountain, The (2006)
In every corner hangs beautiful art and on every wall there is a story...and a story...and a story. I wanted to hang onto the modern fable that was going to rip into our hearts not the cloak and dagger fantasy that could have been its own film. Hugh Jackman was most guttural. The film's complexity overshadowed the simplicity of life. 14-Jan-2020
In This Corner Of The World (2016)
Ambitious and lovingly detailed account of a war torn life. The audacity of surviving when so much has perished. 28-Dec-2019
Favourite, The (2018)
Filching the power of a doddering and enraged queen for self preservation. The lead trio combine with the word to exact the wit, scandal and one-upmanship that exists between women. Emma Stone's ambition cuts like a hurling knife, Rachel Weisz is all-business, running from said knife and the glorious and hilarious Olivia Colman covertly catches the knife to use against whom she pleases. Olivia opens up like the wounds that appear during her illness. 16-Dec-2019
Hallow, The (2015)
Environment enacts revenge for interference. The chills are comprised of adorable baby in danger distress. 11-Dec-2019
Thing From Another World, The (1951)
Causing terror with good old fashioned Hollywood techniques. The film reboots beautifully because it's brilliant. They delivered a completely terrifying story and trusted the audience to use their imagination. 03-Dec-2019
Irishman, The (2019)
The film punched a hole in the walls I had built being a mobster's kid which I only recently realized. It deftly displayed the inner workings of what my father's life was as opposed to how I experienced it.
The more the legends stripped to the third layer the more astonishing the outcome. Pacino roared, DeNiro resolved, Pesci divested, Romano rattled, Maniscalco (pants daddy) plundered and Jim Norton was uncanny. The women were prescribed little voice yet supplied haunting images.
Scorcese realized the gangster of today and allowed him to pay for his regrets. 28-Nov-2019
Old feeble men playing dress up. The intensity of the work is evident as is the three hour sacrifice to honor the best of it but most of it is unwarranted. The pros are welcome faces and the force is evident. I'm halfway in and I want to record my experience in parts. The history is concentrated and the genre is foolproof. While I've had highs with many of these men, it feels like they never moved forward or learned from their mistakes. Where's the now gangster? Scorcese masters the downfall of every criminal hero he builds yet the audience always ends up glorifying him. 27-Nov-2019
First Man (2018)
Gosling boxed his cereal face to grant us a complex and fretful hero and Damien Chazelle hurls us onto a technically pointed and miraculous journey. 24-Nov-2019
