Locke 7/10

Interesting Drama from Steven Knight. The film stars Tom Hardy and takes place in his car. The dialogue is between him and whoever he might be on the phone to. The film is essentially about a mans life unraveling in his journey down to London. It's an Independent film and leans towards a Theatre piece than a typical film. Definitely worth a watch if you're a fan of indie films.

its certainly elliptical, interested more in textures than explicit narrative. some beautiful and haunting visual and aural compositions. it certainly doesn't strive to be emotionally engaging, and its rhythms might teeter on monotony.

FWIW: disagreed philosophically with the framing of what may have been the penultimate scene. also, scarjo was pretty ****ing hot, considering the circumstances.

probably the antithesis to species, would cautiously recommend.

7.5-8


I had a similar feeling toward Tree.

Under the Skin I was just writing about in the thread about naked Scarlett Johansen. Hopefully it's still playing at the little arthouse theatre near me. I mentioned Species in there too. What little I know it struck me as a tonal horror flick falling somewhere between Species explicit gore and Starman's hackney'd 80s formula, but falling somewhere on a similar spectrum. Maybe some bodysnatchers in there too.

Yeah, the movie is fine, but nowhere near City of God.

Not because it was bad or anything; actually it was excellent. Bitches though. Bitches.

You might assume the movie has something to do with hunting, and it does, but not in the way you'd think. Think more along the lines of a witch hunt.

9/10
Just watched it.
God damn it what a movie!
And ****ing bitches man, ****ing bitches...

8/10 - Great acting, solid action, not too short or drawn out.

It has the guy from Black Sails and the blonde girl from Arrow as the leads. Was an engaging movie, explored your typical themes about consciousness, humanity and our nature. Something tells me Transcendence will be similar to this one, but the reviews for that movie worry me.

The Canyons - 4/10

4 is being generous. This was bad, but it was so bad that it was kind of entertaining. Cannot believe that Paul Shrader and Bret Easton Ellis created this train wreck. Note to self, do not hire a porn star as your leading man.
