    The Big Sleep

    Proof that if the dialogue is this sharp, the performances this electric, the momentum this relentless and the atmosphere this febrile, then having any idea what’s going on is completely overrated.

    Also I’ve said it many times before but it bears repeating that Bogart is one of the absolute all-time greatest movie stars, no question about it

  • Ocean's Twelve

    Ocean's Twelve

    One of the best sequels I think I’ve ever seen; stranger, funnier, more experimental and a meta-textual interrogation of the nature of sequels in general. Soderbergh goes full Godard, making it the closest the contemporary Hollywood mainstream has ever come to the spirit and joie de vivre (sa vie) of the Nouvelle Vague. I love it. 

    P.S - one of my favourite lines in anything ever is when an offscreen Elliot Gould asks a very earnest Matt Damon if he’s hosting a telethon the others don’t know about.
