Come Drink With Me (Da zui xia)
6 months ago via Movies on Facebook

Apparently this is a benchmark for modern Hong Kong Kung Fu films. It has some impressive choreography, set design, and cinematography, but the story is only so-so. Still, nice to see where it all started.

Le passé (The Past)
2 years ago via Rotten Tomatoes

Asghar Farhadi has proven again that he is a master of melodrama, painting a story that starts simply and slowly revels the hidden layers underneath. It's a fantastic follow-up to his 2011 award-winner "A Separation," and makes me excited for whatever he makes next.

Jodorowsky's Dune
2 years ago via Rotten Tomatoes

What do Orson Welles, Salvador Dali, H.R. Giger, and Pink Floyd all have in common? They were, at one time, going to help director Alejandro Jodorowsky make his own, unique version of Frank Herbert's "Dune." A compelling film that makes the claim this film would have been ahead of its time and sets about accurately proving it. Jodorowsky himself seems a bit fanatical, but he is dedicated to his vision and it really is something to see an artist share his vision for something that could not or will never be.

Boyhood (2014)
2 years ago via Rotten Tomatoes

Linklater's achievement is nothing short of extraordinary, and once you reach the finish line, you marvel at the journey you have taken with these people. There can possibly no truer approximation of what it feels like to be a parent in the film world as this, as we see the same actor age from 6 to 18 in the span of 2 hours and 40 minutes. Its a marvel that this movie was finished, and even more amazing that it turned out so well.

Kind Hearts and Coronets
2 years ago via Rotten Tomatoes

Bizarre but funny crime film featuring Alec Guinness as the eight members of a family standing in one young man's way of dukedom. It's a biting satire of Britain's aristocracy of the time, and it holds up amazingly well all these years later.
