The Return
The Return (2003)
6 months ago via Flixster
½

Some of the most beautiful cinematography I have ever seen, great child performances, and an ambivalent, tense story. Just short of masterpiece.

The Handmaiden (Ah-ga-ssi)
8 months ago via Movies on iPhone

Near faultless film, beautifully acted and photographed, not to mention fantastically edited, and as an adaptation of The Fingersmith it is truly inspired. Though it threatens to cross over into parody during some of the sex scenes it just manages to keep suspension of disbelief thanks to the humour in the script and performances. A dazzling treat; already I can see this being in my top 10 at years' end.

The Purge: Election Year
8 months ago via Movies on iPhone

Meandering sequel with a restless aesthetic (quite a combination!), that squanders the potentially interesting plot in favour of MTV style editing and lots of guns. Some admittedly arresting imagery (always undercut by a cheap music cue, slow mo gimmick or lens flare), and a goodish central performance aren't enough. In the end, this third instalment hasn't moved on from "Anarchy", and it's seriously lacking in direction and Directing.
