    ★★★★★

    Pre-millennium tension. People always go for Fight Club. It’s all here..  it’s more raw, you can feel it on the streets of London in its empty weekend office spaces and back alleys.

  • Point Blank

    ★★★★★

    beautiful pristine super wide cinema photography.... then some slow-mo.

  • Blood Simple

    Blood Simple

    ★★★★★

    There's something very pure about Blood Simple its the distilled sensibility of a Coen Brothers film. The story has been redone bigger and bolder in the form of Fargo*. But this is one I go to every time. Visually it has more in-common with 80s horror with its backlit smoke and haunted furnaces than Raymond Chandler. Lots of M Emmet Walsh, lots! So much I love about this film. The Brothers had previously worked as crew on Raimi's Evil Dead…
