Everbody watches movies, now probably more than ever. Don't expect any unique insight here. I keep notes on (some of the) movies I watched mostly so that by the time I forget I saw them, I can come back to my notes and maybe remind myself of what the movie felt like.
American Psycho (2000)
Like it or not, it’s become iconic and somewhat of a cult classic. I won’t be rehashing reviews that either demonize it or over-interpret it. I just have a few observations.
I Care A Lot. (2021)
There’s a group of movies and TV series that focus on con artists that is sort of a guilty pleasure for me. From “Talented Mr. Ripley”, through “Catch Me If You Can” to “Sneaky Pete”. This one tries to be in this league.
I loved the movie: the visuals, the sound, the story pacing, the acting. It’s all there. What follows isn’t a review but a rather close synopsis of the plot as I plan to read the books and later compare the two.
The Adjustment Bureau (2011)
I was very conflicted about this film after I watched it. If you have seen it as well, here’s what I thought, and a different idea for the ending.
Good acting, great direction and tasteful photography, often focusing on atypical elements in the frame. The slow-paced plot unveils rather that twists.
