Extremely complicated and intricate, L4YER CAK3 is a sleeper hit that should have become a classic. Blending elements from films like The Sting, The Departed, and The Big Lebowski, L4YER CAK3 is thoroughly entertaining from start to finish
Emotionally gripping and sporting an extremely likable main character, Donnie Darko is a very good movie but the quality becomes increasingly shaky as the movie ventures into a strange and confusing science fiction narrative.
Terrifying, intense and unusually smart, Alien is in the top tier of horror movies, sporting strong lead and supporting acting(Tom Skerrit and Yaphaet Koto are particular highlights) and great pacing throughout.
Sad and begging for empathy, Raging Bull tells the superb story of a confused, all-too-human boxer. Powered by Robert De Niro's excellent performance, Raging Bull is well directed and written, making it a great, solid chunk of cinema.
Disturbing and provocative, Sleepers is the ultimate genre-blender. Acting is solid, though the quality of the secondary characters strongly overpowers the main characters. A good, if slightly tedious, watch.
Intense and stressful, The Departed has strong performances from the whole cast, even from Jack Nicholson in a seemingly out-of-character role. Gripping and brutal, once The Departed gets ahold of you, it doesn't loosen its grip.
