There are 2 or 3 things I burn for- all else- ehh. I’ll have written a thousand PTA and Linklater reviews by the time the world ends.

    Prisoners

    ★★★★½

    A nice little relaxing rewatch before tomorrow’s screening of the most anticipated DUNE (it’s all caps or nothing). Prisoners is bleak from its opening frame, yet Incendies still takes the cake for Denis’ most visceral work? Hugh Jackman manages to match The Prestige as does Jake Gyllenhaal with Zodiac (though I prefer the younger, more patient Jake in that film).

Let’s get the only positive…

    Brick

    ★★★★½

    Somehow even more compelling on rewatch, it’s less humorous and more melancholic this time around, I’ve come to embrace the film noir dialogue to the point where I feel my destiny is within the genre (going to the library and renting young adult mystery novels as a kid paid off). Brick is still Rian Johnson’s masterpiece, his sensibilities works ridiculously well with a low budget and high school setting, it’s what I wish Wes Anderson was still doing (he’s made…
