John Wick

John Wick ★★★★½

"I'm retired."

Modern mythology moonlighting as a methodical genre piece, effortlessly expanding an entire world with every bullet and shard of glass. Very thankful that this film takes a clear, rhythmic approach to John's clear, rhythmic strategy – locking him on a straight path with shifting targets – because the clarity elevates this to an entire other realm. We're propelled through cool blues, deep reds, bodies laid in black and blood. All we can do is bare witness to a spectre's vengeance. Just going to link Mikey Neumann's amazing deconstruction, because it's more encompassing and satisfying than I can be at this moment.
