    This is the first film I've seen from French New Wave director Claude Chabrol and I was not disappointed. It's a fun cat and mouse mystery with some clever foreshadowing and some super fun performances. Chabrol has some beautiful camera movement and the motif of the reflection as a form of false self throughout the film is very well done.

    It has the build and feel of Hitchcock thriller while never quite reaching the highs of them. The tension never…

    I'm a huge fan of Edgar Wright and while I still enjoyed this film, it is definitely near the bottom of his filmography.

    The first act had me hooked and was the best part of the film. Even into the second act I was loving every second of it but as the film moves towards its ending it begins to get muddled and feel repetitive. While the visuals, editing, camerawork, and soundtrack were perfect, the story and writing hold this film back. It's still worth a watch but unless you really love this kind of movie, maybe wait until it's on streaming or VOD.

    Honestly I've given it some time to think about it but i think it's safe to say this is my favorite comic book movie of all time. It's intimate, funny, dark, and just overall a wonderful story. This is the way Wolverine needed to be shown and I hope that this begins a trend a great rated R comic movies with great stories. It's been a long time since I've been so emotional towards a movie.
