    The reason I think this film transcends most horror is that it is such a great story about anxiety that gets out of control. I have to think Jennifer Kent has dealt with extreme anxiety either...

    I went into the film thinking Pynchon + Paul Thomas Anderson would be a win/win. I left thinking it was a fun trip. Not recommended for people who need a coherent story pattern. Recommended for Josh...

    Finally got to Nebraska after putting it off for a long time. Now I wish I'd seen it in the theater. I really like Alexander Payne movies, and yeah I know he's really kind of retreading the "road...

    Hayduke what you need and would love if you haven't already is Alan Turing: The Enigma. I wasn't smart enough to get through it and wound up scanning the technical parts for the bio parts and then...
