    One of the things I tend to hear from both people who love slower films and people who don't tend to connect with slower films is that these works demand a lot from the audience. That they require intense concentration, intense patience, and a strong will to get through them. I often find the exact opposite to be true. When you have a really great director at the helm who's at the height of his abilities and craftsmanship, they tend…

    It feels like older films keep having to constantly prove their relevancy in a society where the goalposts for what is and isn’t deemed “dated” are constantly shifting. Silent films especially.

    A truly cinematic experience that totally melted my brain. Who knew we would have another spectacle film this year after Mad Max: Fury Road? Epic action with a Malick flair? Yes. Every single wound and injury was felt by the audience. The bear scene and the opening battles made my jaw drop to the floor. I feel so so so lucky to have seen this early because this is a truly special movie. The kind of movie we'll still be…
