"Tense and engaging, with very good technicals. Entertaining if nihilistic depiction of characters who, once having enjoyed the spoils, purpose, and thrills of criminality, find themselves [whether for reasons psychological or sociological] helpless to escape it, and can only delay the inevitable [it makes no difference whether just or not] deserts. Make no mistake though, this is, ultimately, simply a cops-and-robbers, popcorn flick, but taken for such, you can't do much better."

"dude you ever think about how, like... money isnt even real"
94 99% Gummo (1997) - Jul 03, 2013
"A simultaneously preposterous and ulta-realist portrayal of mock- southern u.s. lower-class youth. Effectively both a haunting anthropological document and a gorgeous, stunning piece of the most poetic and visionary cinematic expressionism. Extraordinary and bold-- simultaneously misanthropic and sympathetic."
82 97% It's a Wonderful Life (1946) - Jul 03, 2013
"For me, the end result completely negates any disgusting wholesomeness, whatever dubious morality, classic-family/xmas-movie status, etc., because underneath, this is deeply cinematic and haunting film. As always, the only way Capra knows to achieve that end is via wildly exaggerated Dickensian sentimentality, but his art is elevated to true greatness because his manipulation, on par with von Trier and Hitchcock, is so pure and -so- cinematic. Honestly a joy to watch."
66 85% Where Is the Friend's Home? (1987) - Nov 15, 2015
"In the beginning, one of the children, obviously instructed not to look at the camera, seemingly looks straight at it by accident & hurriedly glances away. With this same childlike candor & simplicity the film continues, yet not without all the stark formalism of Bresson & the grace of Kiarostami's later work. Characters repeat lines, like in a dream; we hear adults' folksy wisdom, some actually interesting & some stupid-- we're admitted into a universe of the wonder & sensitivity of a child."

"It's just Chabrol, but wow, Isabelle Huppert and abortions-- two of my favorite things!-- in one movie? It's almost too good to be true. <3"
