"Superior music video with inventive and memorable choreography."

"Meagre insights."
60 60% Rolling Thunder Revue: A Bob Dylan Story by Martin Scorsese (2019) - Jun 18, 2019
"Zimmerman isn't one of my chosen saints, but there are quite a few interesting moments here, with the performances of "The Ballad of Ira Hayes" and "Hurricane" probably the standouts. The fakery was mildly amusing but didn't really add too much (though Van Dorp was a pretty good character)."
45 33% The Girl Raised by Monkeys (2014) - Jun 16, 2019
"Makes a pretty good case that something along the lines of what Chapman claims happened probably did happen, even if some questions remain."
55 51% Black Mirror: Rachel, Jack and Ashley Too (2019) - Jun 07, 2019
"Cleverly enlists Miley Cyrus into a war against the industrial production of music, the irony being that the vehicle chosen by the filmmakers for the prosecution of this war is the music of Trent Reznor, who made his fortune by taking the "dark themes" attractive to those allergic to pop and wrapping them around what is essentially easily digestible pop music, a strategy later copied with great success by Brian Warner, and in a more diluted fashion by Alecia Moore and Stefani Germanotta."
55 51% Black Mirror: Smithereens (2019) - Jun 06, 2019
"A tense if somewhat maudlin presentation concerning the engineering of screen-addiction through the destruction and capture of attention."
55 51% Black Mirror: Striking Vipers (2019) - Jun 06, 2019
"Well done portrayal of the possible socio-sexual consequences of hijacking libidinal circuits at the level of the drives."
40 25% Science Fiction Volume One: The Osiris Child (2016) - Jun 04, 2019
"A couple of surprising narrative turns help. Presumably the intended subsequent "Volumes" will remain unrealised."
35 19% Hacksaw Ridge (2016) - Jun 01, 2019
"It's strange how close the general structure is (and some of the scenes are, to the point of imitation) to FULL METAL JACKET, while having a completely different meaning and intent. A simple tale, perhaps a little confused in its presentation of the "issues", but ultimately just aiming to be a story about the importance of "sticking to your beliefs" so why worry about a few pesky complications?"
65 69% Le Signe du lion (1962) - May 31, 2019
"The concerns with ethics and more directly (here) with fate and chance can't compare to the director's later work, but this does really succeed in giving a feeling of how quickly it is possible to slide into destitution...and of Paris as a prison of stone. Incidentally, the writer credited with the dialogue, Paul Gégauff, who mainly worked with Chabrol, was on Christmas Eve 1983 stabbed to death by his young wife Coco Ducados, who had five years earlier played a small role in Rohmer's PERCEVAL."
