    A Single Yesterday

    ★★★

    A decent short film with competent cinematography. The performances were quite impressive, but the dialogue that the actors had to work with is quite cliche. The idea of the script is interesting, but as the execution is quite bland, the film suffers from the lack of profoundness. There is still many positives, and for a low budget short film, A Single Yesterday is competent, and the filmmaker Keith LaFountaine might have a bright future ahead of him...

    ★★★★★

    I watched my favorite comedy of all time at BFI Southbank with an introduction by actor Joe Thomas(The Inbetweeners, Fresh Meat). This was my first time seeing a film with an introduction, which was really cool. Seeing The Big Lebowski with packed crowd was an amazing experience, people laughed so hard that it was difficult to hear the dialogue. There were many people who hadn't see the film before, must have been great to see this for the first time at the cinema. For me, it was the sixth viewing and that number will significantly grow in the future.

    If there ever were a perfect film this might very well be it. There isn't a single flaw in this masterpiece. Everything from cinematography to performances are top notch. This is without a doubt one of the most thematically rich films I've ever seen. Now after second viewing Harakiri secures its place in my Top 10 favorite films of all time. I highly encourage everyone to see this definition of a masterpiece.

    I couldn't even imagine that I'd like this film so much, it's my favorite Paul Thomas Anderson film now and it goes straight into my top 40 films of all time. Other thing I couldn't even imagine is that this film is absolutely hilarious, in fact it's one of funniest films I've ever seen! I read a couple of reviews that complained about the very loud music in the film, but in my opinion it fits flawlessly to the chaotic…
