Yes, yes, yes, YES!
 

OBLIVION

09/12/2013

 

Post apocalypse is a difficult genre. Visually beautiful, worth a view, but overall: no.

 

AMOUR

08/23/2013

 
Michael Haneke's (Caché) highly acclaimed bleak portrait of an aging couple; it's French, and the performances are good, but is it a pleasure to watch? No. 
 

TRANCE

08/21/2013

 
Danny Boyle directed, violent, nasty dark, psychological thriller vehicle for Rosario Dawson, who is amazing; co-starring James McAvoy and my favorite badassmofo Vincent Cassel: yes.


 

AWAY FROM HER

08/11/2013

 

Sarah Polley writes and directs from Alice Munro's short story, a beautiful love story: yes.

 

BLACK ANGEL (1946)

08/09/2013

 
Film Noir, adaptation of a Cornell Woolrich novel, 81 minutes tight, great drunken flashback montage: yes!
 

MUD

05/27/2013

 
Coming of age on the Mississippi River tale from writer/director Jeff Nichols (Take Shelter.) I don't love the steadicam, but yes yes yes: loved it!

INFAMOUS (2006)

04/28/2013

 
I barely remember Capote, and I'm sure it's good, but this Truman Capote In Cold Blood biopic features his New York City socialite friends, and a romance with Daniel Craig: yes!
 

DJANGO UNCHAINED

04/17/2013

 
Christoph Waltz has replaced Uma Thurman as Quintin Tararntino's muse. Violent revenge romancer that's too long, but Jamie Fox is completely bad ass, and it's so campy and over the top I forgive Harvey & company. Nobody can borrow from old films like Tarantino.
