I love Le Samouraï, but Le Cercle Rouge just edges is out.

I recommend Borgman, a Dutch psychological thriller. It's a slow-burn, but damn good.

My local/independent theater is playing Borgman in a week. Looking forward to it!

Stephen Chow's "Journey to the West - Conquering the Demons"

Probably my favorite movie all year even though this was released early 2013. I just saw it last night though for my first time. So damn entertaining from start to finish.

I should try catch that eventually. It's been a while since I've watched a Stephen Chow film.

Grand Budapest Hotel: meh. The deadpan eccentricity/precociousness-in-diorama presentation...canna take it anymore. Still Ralph Fiennes is a great actor. One of his generation's best IMO.

Just saw a movie on HBO called El Callejon. Spanish language but there are subtitles . I watched it without knowing anything about it and thought it was great Starts off suspense and pulls the rug out in the last 1/3rd . The trailer which is on youtube gives away too much so don't bother with that

Don't know if it's already been addressed here, but Snowpiercer is pretty drymounting great. I predict we'll be seeing some cool posters in the near future.

Just saw Out of The Furnace...one of those films that does exactly what it says on the tin. Solid performances all around, a great script and very well directed. I'm pretty surprised this wasn't in theaters longer...well worth a couple of hours.

I didn't mind Out of the Furnace, but the last third ruined the film for me. A few character actions felt completely out of character. Casey Affleck is good as usual though.
