Sorcerer
Sorcerer (1977)
2 months ago via Movies on iPhone

An excellent and mesmerizing film that builds in tension and never lets up. Nerve wracking and unrelenting, it shows human reaction to a living hell. Ultimately there is no redemption for the unredeemed. A stunning performance by Roy Scheider. Superb soundtrack by Tangerine Dream. Very underrated lost classic. The production problems were a thing of legend. Based on Georges Arnaud's THE WAGES OF FEAR. I prefer this color remake to the black and white original of the latter name. This film is a masterpiece. IF YOU HAVEN'T SEEN IT, YOU HAVEN'T LIVED. I spoke to William Friedkin briefly about it once on Twitter. He was gracious.

The Edge of Seventeen
3 months ago via Movies on iPhone

THE EDGE OF SEVENTEEN was cute and decent... And slight. It flirted with larger issues without engaging them. The screenplay was good, but not great. The best part of the film is Woody Harrelson's interaction with Hailee Steinfeld. It was at these few moments that the film was at its best, and approached something greater. As such, it is an entertaining diversion, but not a great film. Go see it and enjoy it, but don't believe the hype. It's nowhere near the best film of the year. Recommended. ***.25/*****.

Helicopter Mom

This film is terrible. Don't watch it. A mother applies for a gay scholarship for her son who isn't gay. It is awful.
