The Manchurian Candidate ★★★★

Not the best film to watch when there is much political turmoil around you, unless you're like me and tinkering with paranoia about the State is something you easily lean towards. This time I particularly loved the cinematography, presenting surfaces as a context you cannot trust. Combine that with Demme's close-ups and medium close-ups and you get a claustrophobic environment even when little on the screen is happening.
