93% rating on rotten tomatoes.

Watched this and wished I didn't. Absolute shit film. Chow has not been on form for many years. He was better as a comedian actor than director.

Watched Spring, Summer, Fall, Winter… and Spring.
Pretty cosy movie involving a young boy living with a monk on a floating island.
Liked it because of the scenery.

Barton Fink- Exploration of dysfunctional relationships. The doting ones become exploitative but the actors are so good it works. It's not an exaggeration to think of these relationships as having a wider social significance.

Last Year at Marienbad- Turns out that the people on my CE tee were from this. It felt like a purgatory of unrequited love. But for the man or the woman?

War Dogs- Funny and dumb. Makes me think there's no admittance of guilt in mainstream American culture.

Drive- Simple premise with brilliant character dynamics and presentation.

Thinner. Stephen King adaptation & pure guilty pleasure. Might be the worse film you've seen this year but it's so bad it's actually pretty good.

Re-watched Heat again last night. The whole film is excellent. Never really appreciated it when I first watched it a good 10 years ago but now, wow! The end scene is a perfect build up of tension and the conclusion is immensely satisfying.

The Fantastic Four . Watchable but I can see why it bombed, the black guy from the wire is good and Kate Mara is sexy as always.

Captain America Civil War . Entertaining and the fights are well done by the Russo brothers however an unsatisfactory ending.

Conjuring 2. Bag of wank. Turned it off after an hour.

Tale of Tales, film of year so far for me.

Lost Highway. I've seen Mulholland Drive and Inland Empire and I'm not a David Lynch fan. His films are paced so slow it's a struggle not to fall asleep and keep interested. Considering Kubrick was a massive influence I thought I would like his films more. Dr Strangelove, 2001, A Clockwork Orange and Full Metal Jacket are all epic up there with Hitchcock in the top 5 directors.

Your reviews - makes me think you're a try-hard wannabe intellectual or something.

Just trying to make the movie sound interesting in a sentence or two. You might think the best way to do that is mention the plot, but that's not the relatable part. What films say about social relations is the most interesting and relatable part and if the film doesn't say shit but I like it then I have every right to talk whatever shit about it.

The usual suspects- Very good story and dialogue. But the camera is very over-expressive. It destroys tension.
Shouldn't have been given to an essentially first time director.
