    ★★½

    It has flashes of potential throughout - most of which feature Gabourey Sidibe absolutely crushing dreams. I'm pretty sure that's what this movie was about. Yep, that's what it was about, for sure.

    Rec'd by TheJamesTaylor, loved it. Fun sci-fi action, high budget production, great effects - and a unique time shifting plot to boot. If i was greenlighting US remakes this would be on the top of my list.

    ★★★★½

    Slow West is like if Quentin Tarantino, Wes Anderson, and Jim Jarmusch bore a love child in New Zealand, then raised it in old west Colorado, with the life expectancy of a kiddie film's runtime. (And I mean that in the most complimentary way possible.)

    Discussed in full on episode #139 of the Cinereelists podcast.

    ★★★★½

    In theaters October 31, 2014.

    Wow, what a deliciously creepy film first-time director Dan Gillroy has here. Gyllenhaal plays his hand perfectly as a cold obsessive who finds career opportunity in capturing crime footage as fast and as grizzly as possible in order to sell it at the highest price to the local news, a pursuit that eventually leads him to bend the rules of the game - along with everyone around him. A+, would watch again.
