    A Fistful of Dollars would be at least 30% better if, every once in a while, Clint Eastwood pulled his arms up into his shirt and scratched his chin through his neckhole.

    Looking forward to watching For a Few Jimbo More.

    If you want me to sympathize with a Nazi, having her sleep with a 16-year-old in her 40s isn't the way to do it.

    I got to see this one at a local film festival and I was pretty blown away. Lanthimos leaves behind the cold, disaffected dialogue of his previous films and ventures into straight ahead comedy. Though this is anything but middle-of-the-road. It's gorgeously shot and has so much depth and drama layered on top of the jokes. Olivia Colman is the MVP. In a just world, she'd be a shoe-in for a best supporting actress nod. Stone and Weisz have never been better. Highly recommended.
