    Mr. Kubrick, we humans don't deserve the films that you've made in your entire career.

    Sincerely, Human

    Kubrick's views are well delineated throughout his filmography, and everytime I watch another one of his films, there's this undeniable talent of mastery in the craft of filmmaking that only he posseses. While being beautiful, its topics isn't; With a harrowing look on how flawed this system is, not only on wars, but the entire system on how humans would trade anything for…

Dr. Strangelove is made by a painter at work, a meticulous artist that gives beautiful layers to every fudging frames that he touches. Fettered with themes of anti-war and weapon…

    I love her.

    PIG is fettered with weirdness and stupidity, a serious movie made to laugh and at the same time, frown at, and I love every second of it. In an office, the most dedicated person will always be the last one to get fired, and that's why I love Nicolas Cage. No matter big or small, no matter how bad or good, he always give 100 freaking percent of his talent, and that's something we should really venerate.…
