Rarely have I seen a film that manages to induce in the viewer the emotions of its protagonist so intimately and uncomfortably. This a pitch-perfect portrayal of modern adolescence - awkward, stressful, isolated and direartificial.
A bit more sluggish than its predecessor, although it has its moments of breathless brilliance, too.
Full-tilt, pedal to the metal awesomeness.
Originally meant to be a movie called 'The Babysitter Murders' where the titular killings took place over multiple days, budget limitations meant that the script had to restrict the action to one day (fewer costumes, fewer locations) - and so 'Halloween' was born. And this small film of constraints, made on a shoestring by a collection of then mostly unknown talents, still remains the gold standard in the slasher genre 42 years later. The gold standard in hair-raising background scores too.
An amusing satire that finds several laughs in a silly concept and doesn't overstay its welcome.
Ayushmann Khurrana's streak continues with 'Bala', a funny, winning examination of how deeply superficial things can affect people.
A pleasant and likeable coming-of-age tale.
One of those rare films that affirm cinema as a medium. This is a spectacular technical achievement.
Tom Hanks is predictably perfect for the role of one of the most absurdly nice people in history.
'Haider' is another striking Shakespearean adaptation from Vishal Bhardwaj, even if I was a little unconvinced by the choice of Shahid Kapoor for the titular role.
I hadn't heard of Rudy Ray Moore before I watched 'Dolemite Is My Name', but I'm glad I have now. This film reminds me of 'Ed Wood' and 'The Disaster Artist' because of how sincerely and wholeheartedly it celebrates a B-movie personality that most would otherwise laugh at- but the important difference is that while nobody would honestly mistake Wood and Wiseau for great talents, Moore (at least as presented in this movie) undoubtedly has a distinct and compelling comedic flair. This is a joyous, entertaining experience. All hail Eddie Murphy for finally finding a vehicle worthy of his immense ability.
It won't stand out among the best work of either Eastwood or Hanks, but this is a solid telling of a remarkable story.
This is the film that Martin Scorsese once said influenced him more than any other, and it deserves entry into the cinema hall of fame for that alone. But of course it has a lot more going for it - its compelling and cold characters, the assuredness of its style, the sheer efficiency of its storytelling. This is one of the best film noirs of the 50s.
Few films in history will seem as prophetic as Steven Soderbergh's 'Contagion'. If you want to see every beat of the current pandemic anticipated and laid out in meticulous detail, watch this 9 year-old movie that you might easily mistake for a procession of present-day newsreels (were it not for the parade of big-name actors populating it)
Martin Scorsese returns to his roots with great success. Comparisons with 'Goodfellas' will be inevitable, but guess what - 'The Irishman' will hold its own in that contest. Slightly sketchy de-aging CGI aside, the sheer epic scope of this film along with its heavyweight cast and master director make for a formidable late-career Scorsese gem.
I don't think any film I have watched has made as compelling a case against revenge as this brilliant and disturbing thriller. I won't be forgetting this one in a hurry.
Horror-comedy is rare Hindi cinema, and 'Stree' is a more than worthy representative of the genre.
The casting alone would have done 90% of the job here, but there is writing and dialogue to back it up as well. Habemus papum!
This is close to being a masterpiece. It's one of the best adaptations of Shakespeare I've ever seen.
A wonderful adaptation. It's Greta Gerwig's world and we're just living in it, aren't we?
