    The Zero Years

    ★★★★★

    It did not take long for me to fall in love with these four remarkably well written and charismatic actresses as they just barely navigate their way through the day to day reality of living within a most cruel and cursed existence. Actress Vicky Harris and Eftyhia Yakoumi both deserve a huge shout out! Their characters are especially interesting, seeing them evolve throughout the story (at first total strangers, but by the end I perceived them as part of a family,…

    Sympathy for Lady Vengeance

    ★★★★½

    I have such grand appreciation for this film now that I’ve seen it twice. First watch felt too cold and vague but on second watch everything becomes much more clear, especially when making note of the excellent design style that gives this entry such an unique and meaningful impression! The film has an opera like feel to it along with Chan-wook writing the story in a wonderfully demented fashion. Overall it may not be the director’s best work but it’s…

    ★★★½

    Just a note on Vampire the Masquerade: 
    I sure do hope Bloodlines II surprises everyone (when it does release). But it’s not looking too good since senior narrative designer Cara Ellison left the project. Experiences with Vampire the Masquerade have and will always need lusty and sturdy narrative direction or it’s bound to feel clichéd and lacking in that oh so sweet vampire wonderment everyone desires!

    ★★★★★

    “What if all the world's inside of your head just creations of your own. Your devils and your gods, all the living and the dead and you're really all alone. You can live in this illusion, you can choose to believe. You keep looking but you can't find the woods while you're hiding in the trees.”

    What an exquisite movie! I believe this is my 3rd watch and I’m still noticing new connections & themes. The VFX are sublime in nearly…

    –Aside from reading a few quick reviews, I knew zero about the storyline. And that is definitely the way to watch this! Maybe just read enough to get a feeling if it’s…
