    The Power of the Dog

    ★★★★

    Revenge of the nerd

    Great cast and wonderful director. Love the striking score and wide open cinematography. Didn’t realize Cumberbatch could play such a straight up redneck asshole. Plemons just a freak no matter what role he’s playing, love him.

    Slow and methodical with ominous undertones like Campion’s other films. Just waiting for shit to go down.  Love how she leads you to expect a certain outcome and then twists and surprises you in the end. This film nailed the ending, great sit.

  • The Duellists

    The Duellists

    ★★★

    Incessant duel to the death for 100 min. Ridley Scott blind spot for me. Hard to find this flick. Surprised since this has a well known cast.

    Not sure about casting Keitel in anything but an American bad ass New Yorker, but shitty foreign accents aside, he is a presence. Amazing cinematic landscapes, full blown symphonic score, great performances. Sometimes these fictional docudramas put in real historical times are a bore fest, this not so much. First, it’s not 3 hours long, second, performances are outstanding and of course…Ridley Scott. Final duel sequence slightly anticlimactic. Watchable but not epic.


    Note: Finney unrecognizable at first.

    Dragonheart: Battle for the Heartfire

    ★★½

    Sucker for anything with swords and dragons in it, even if it's shit with a Mick jagger looking lead character acting like "an arrogant snout".

    Huh? I must be missing something. This was a boring piece of shit with the high point being the main character getting a hand job on the beach. "Edgy" urban themes paired with Kubrick type soundtrack, total Bullshit. Of course it's the best pic of the year.
