Place Beyond The Pines . Wasn't expecting much as Cianfrances previous effort Blue Valentine was an unmitigated piece of shit. However I must of saw
something in that film as I happily trooped along to this one.

Gotta say this was a tour de force, the kids got proper directing chops, easily will be one of the top ten films of the year already along with to the wonder.
You can't take it as a straight serious piece though, it's more like a fable or tale, you have to forgive its incredibly neat tying of loose ends,
if however you can get past that stuff its a very rewarding film.

Gangster Squad (Squib) - Makes Untouchables look like The Godfather. Gosling is so one-note it's ridiculous.

The location will make sense when you go there. Perfect imo.

Couple of things though: They screen the film in the midst of what's going on as apposed to Shawshank when they screened it at the end. Unless you've actually seen the film which I had done, a lot of it might be lost on you. Also, they fucked up on the licensing so they're not selling alcohol (massive fuck up imo) so you might want to sneak in some booze especially if you've gone for a few drinks beforehand.

PM me if you want to know what it is so you can watch it beforehand.

apart from mulligan and gosling there were a lot of poor performances; bryan canston, ron Perlman was terrible and Oscar Isaac, which just sank the film for me. It didn't grip me, didn't interest me

I liked the songs choices and the text font/colour though

Bad Boy Bubby - Best film I've seen recently, was shot brilliantly, the first few scenes and the atmosphere were set perfectly. It had everything, was put through so many different emotions, was sickening and cruel, hilarious, heart-warming and life-affirming all at the same time. The band scenes were Cool Laughing out loud

Have also recently watched Le Samourai, Holy Motors, Seven Psychopaths, The Believer, Cloud Atlas, The Assassination of Jesse James and a few others. All were decent, can't be arsed to write about them all.
