Just got around to watching Calvary. Excellent movie with a powerful performance from Brendan Gleeson. It really had me thinking afterwards, love movies that do that to me. Image

^^Calvary kicked ass.

Saw Marshland tonight at the local indie theater. Solid. It made me rethink, though, my thinking that nearly all good TV series focused on a single event/case would work better as movies. This one could've gotten some mileage out of the back stories/historical background. #grassiznevahgreenah

I finally watched Primer and liked it a lot, even more than Upstream Color. I definitely need to watch it again and try to untangle the events in the film's last fifteen minutes, which were enjoyably obtuse. I look forward to whatever else Shane has up his sleeve...

Is it just my strange mind, or was the "rats in the attic" part of the film included as a sly Exorcist reference?

Watched an interesting film that I enjoyed a lot. Music in it was amazing. Starring Billy Crudup and Anton Yelchin. It was also William H. Macy's directorial debut. It was called Rudderless. Highly Recommend.

Cross-posting from another movie thread:

I recommend Krisha and Room. Holy fudge, these movies are awesome. Both are super emotional. Krisha's high drama isn't for everybody. It's masterfully directed by first-time director Trey Edward Schults. He worked in the camera department on a couple of Malick films and made Krisha on the cheap, using his (surprisingly talented) family as the cast and shooting it in his mom's house. Killer cinematography and score and the lead actress, Trey's Aunt, Krisha Farichild is exceptional. After the movie I looked back and every person in the row behind me was covered in tears. It won the audience and the jury awards at SXSW and opens March 18th. I saw it at the Houston Cinema Arts Festival. Room is also top notch. One of my favorites in what's stacking up to be a pretty solid year for movies.

The guard is drymounting great. I'm pretty sure the guy who directed it is the same guy who directed Calvary.


A few recent can't misses IMO : Spotlight, The Lobster and Sicario.

I recommend Dope. Also, where is The Lobster? I missed its three (?) day theater run and it hasn't shown up on demand or redbox, etc.

Find it ASAP. It's definitely online. It's in my top 5 of 2015.
