RAW "is vibrant, violent and vivaciously grotesque", where "the teenage sexual allegory heightens the horror, and the use of colour and sound amplifies the actors’ performances".

Are movie universes doomed to collapse? +Jim Ross  looks at them through the kaleidoscope of physics.
"In the creative sense, energy may also follow another interpretation of the second law of Thermodynamics – it will degrade to the point where nothing happens naturally. Here, creative energy becomes creative entropy: disorder, lack of structure, floating and useless energy."

+Jim Ross  reviews Tom Tykwer's tale of desert-bound mid life crisis, A HOLGRAM FOR THE KING. Engaging, but lacking thematic heft and conviction.
"...it does often feel like LOST IN TRANSLATION (FROM ARABIC), perhaps – and those common themes feel malnourished in a poor man's version. Having Hanks’ character exchange emails with his love interest during a montage is also ill-advised as it begins to feel a bit like YOU’VE GOT MAIL (INSHALLAH)."

"THE NICE GUYS is a crucial reminder that we can do action comedies without constantly winking to the audience. It shows not everyone in this type of film needs to be described as ‘a badass’ – they can be a fucking idiot, and that’s ok."
