Title Year Seen Rating
Nukie 1988 5 Feb 23 Rated 1
If I ever have to torture someone, I’ll use this.
The Quiet Girl 2022 4 Feb 23 Rated 9
So much beauty and quiet empathy. Heartwarming and heartbreaking. A gem.
Breezy 1973 3 Feb 23 Rated 6
A story that's not an easy sell. Eastwood somehow manages to make this relatively sweet and carefree. The cast do the rest.
Plane 2023 3 Feb 23 Rated 5
As straightforward and formulaic as they come. And sometimes that's exactly what you want.
Next Stop, Greenwich Village 1976 31 Jan 23 Rated 7
Not my favourite Mazursky. The story is a little too mushy, yet you can't help being drawn to the band of eccentrics at its centre.
Serre Moi Fort 2021 29 Jan 23 Rated 6
I'm not sure the payoff is worth it, but it's a singular look into grief and loss. Vicky Krieps is impressive and the film would definitely be inferior without her.
Les Cinq Diables 2022 29 Jan 23 Rated 8
A story of paths not taken. It's a unique blend of genres and incomplete ideas that mostly works and, even when it doesn't, remains captivating thanks to the fantastic performances and atmosphere.
Time Warp Vol. 2: Horror and Sci-Fi 2020 24 Jan 23 Rated 4
A less interesting film selection than the first one but, yet again, worth it for the odd story or anecdote.
Bad Words 2013 23 Jan 23 Rated 5
This film can't figure out if it wants to be heartwarming or nasty. It's amusing enough, it just contains more misses than hits.
9 Mois Ferme 2013 21 Jan 23 Rated 6
A minor entry in Dupontel's filmography. Keeps to his usual themes of skewering official instances and the intersection of different social strata. It's entertaining and has a short runtime so doesn't outlive its welcome.
