    Persona

    ★★★★

    A gorgeous film, beautifully acted, and absolutely brilliant. I need to rewatch it already, to fully come to grips with what I've just seen and to fully understand what it's trying to say. My first Bergman film, and will not be my last.

    (Extremely expensive Criterion box set, I'm coming for you one day!)

    Terrified

    ★★★

    It has some really terrifying sequences throughout, but its ultimately bogged down by a really boring couple of sections. Absolutely love the contortionist hiding under the bed and all the effects were pretty great. Also, it ends in a really dumb way.

    Reservoir Dogs

    ★★★★★

    This review may contain spoilers. I can handle the truth.

    SPOILER WARNING:




    Reservoir Dogs is one of those rare films where every character is a huge piece of crap, theres very little no redemption arc for almosy any of them, and they pretty much all die. But my god does it work. I hate almost every single person in the film, yet still adore it. Its phenomenal.
