    Is it the slow-burn, bone-chilling, atmospheric, character-development driven, jumpscare-free release from Ferrara that he promised?
    -That's the wrong question.

    Is this the logical next-step forward in new sincere, self-reflexive cinema from one of the boldest directors of all time?
    -Yes.

    Instead of being inviting and plot-driven like many of his other highly personal films, Ferrara almost seems to be shut off and impenetrable here - except we're on the inside with him. That's not to say that nothing makes sense…

    ★★★★★

    Tokyo Drift surely stands out as the series' (Lucas) Black sheep, but that's what leads it to being some of the most resonant storytelling Fast and Furious has seen to date.

    With a third film in the franchise and a brand new screenwriter with yet another director, all signs were pointing to failure for this film if it was played like the previous two. Thankfully, Lin elevated Tokyo Drift through some more stylized direction that was a distinct departure from…

    The abhorrent middle ground between Shane Dawson and trappped.
    Ian treats his subject, an actual human being, with so little respect here its embarrassing. Constantly cutting away from what hes saying so as to keep the focus of this documentary on himself. Nothing is really ever about "fatty", just Ian being goofy and one-step removed from plagiarizing MDE content as hes been doing his entire career. I wanted to know more about Chris's way of life, why he does the…
