    Joker

    ★★★★½

    Disturbing from start to finish. I'm sorry Tom Hardy, but Joaquin Phoenix is now my favourite actor. He has impressed me for a while now and he is truly mesmerising in this, his commitment to the character is breathtaking. The musical score was very haunting, mixed with some fitting song choices. Violence is used sparingly, making it even more visceral and horrific when it crops up.

    I wouldn't necessarily say its a masterpiece, but I also highly disagree with those…

    ★★★★★

    I've seen this film at least 10x since it's theatrical release and it really gets better everytime you watch it!

    Pulp Fiction

    ★★★★★

    I'm going to happily jump on the bandwagon and simply state that this film is a masterpiece! It blows my mind that this was only Tarantino's second feature, he developed his talents so much from Reservoir Dogs.

  • Mean Streets

    Mean Streets

    ★★★★

    Despite being a little clunky and light on plot, Mean Streets is still a great early Scorsese film. Containing possibly one of my favourite De Niro performances and many firey, fast talking characters that are just so much fun to watch.

    Scorsese directs with great confidence and I especially appreciated a brilliant moment of subjectivity when Harvey Keitel's character gets blind drunk. I don't think I'm going to rewatch it anytime soon, but I'm glad I decided to pop it on once I saw it on Netflix.
