The movie is all about people conning people. Daniel Day Lewis's nuanced and layered performance is a master class on method acting. He takes every part of this manipulative oil man and peels it back to reveal more. Cinematography doesn't waste a shot. I have a problem with the heavy handed transcendental tropes throughout the film (names, weather, etc). Outside of DDL, poor casting brings down the quality of this film. Dano is flat and O'Connor is miscast. Still, I recommend.

Another week... another review.  This time I went back and reviewed Nebraska: Slow paced, melodramatic, black and white film; not for the Michael Bay crowd. The cast and the acting is spot on. This is not Bruce Dern's finest work but he does a very good job. Will Forte is very understated in his best performance to date. Stacy Keach is brilliant. The cinematography is almost a character in itself. I see this as a tribute to Ansel Adams work. This story is strong but formulaic, no huge surprises here. Well deserving of it's Oscar nomination. 88/100

Yes, I'm back.... and I wrote a movie review:  24/100

Choppy 1st act builds up nicely. Ben and Reed's relationship is explored briefly then pretty much abandoned.  Dan Castelena chews up his small role throughout the movie. Fast forward to the accident. It has serious shades of Cronenberg's "The Fly" and is the last good part.  Acts 2 & 3 are terrible with a completely different feel. Chunks of this movie are missing. And then Doom. WTF! Going around popping people's heads like "Scanners". Overpowered UNTIL the climax battle of course. Just DON'T.

So I went to watch "The Great Dictator" last night on Netflix. If you've never seen it, it's probably Charlie Chaplin's greatest film. Well, it seems it has been pulled from their library. So I went to YouTube to at least look at some clips; they are all gone too.
