Black Swan (2010)
Director: Darren Aronofsky
Tense, paranoid and claustrophobic, Black Swan is a beautiful nightmare, if there is such a thing. Aronofsky returns to familiar territory with this descent into madness. Natalie Portman's masterful turn as a ballet performer obsessed with perfection is only tempered by her unwilling transformation into the Black Swan as she destroys the relationships around her. The beautiful Barbara Hershey turns in a chilling performance as the unbalanced, overprotective mother living vicariously through her daughter’s accomplishments. Sadly, Mila Kunis, though not underutilized as an antagonist, receives little screen time as a dancer. As always, Cassel shines as a villainous instructor. Matthew Libatique’s cinematography is balanced, Clint Mansell reworks Tchaikovsky to a fevered, ominous pitch, and the sound design will have you squirming in your seat.

Lion 2016- What’s your favourite movie based on a true story? I absolutely loved Lion and Dev Patel’s performance as a young Saroo Brierley, a young man trying to find his mother after being separated in India 25 years earlier. Fun fact- Despite playing the lead character, Dev Patel was nominated for Best Supporting Actor at the Academy Awards. This is because he does not appear until nearly an Hour into the film, and the studio felt he might have a better chance of getting nominated in the Supporting category. Nonetheless, some still felt that the decision was category fraud.
Primal Fear 1996- What’s an acting performance that really blew you away? Edward Norton’s turn as a young altar boy accused of murdering a priest in Primal Fear springs to mind! Fun fact- According to the Blu-ray behind-the-scenes information, it was Edward Norton's idea to stutter as "Aaron," as it appeared nowhere in the original book or script. In addition, when "Roy" shoves Vail (Richard Gere) against the prison cell wall, Gere's shocked reaction is genuine, as that was another ad-lib by Norton. Another Norton ad-lib was Roy's slow clap at the end just before the exposition when Vail realized what had happened.
Prisoners (2013) .
Denis Villeneuve got me into film with his spectacular dystopian sequel, Blade Runner 2049. He cemented his status as the best director working today with Arrival, Sicario, and Prisoners. Incendies was icing on the cake. Every movie of his had blown me away, he became my favorite director. Not long after, I found the first crack on his seemingly impervious shield, it was Polytechnique. My 4th rewatch of Arrival made me doubt my admiration for him. So, with my third watch of Prisoners, I was very trepidatious. Will Villeneuve deliver or disappoint? .
After watching the film, I'm saddened to say that Prisoners did nothing for me. A few things remain unchanged. Deakin's cinematography is grueling, dark and rich, it creates a pummeling atmosphere. The lead performances by Gyllenhaal and Jackman are outstanding, though the rest of the cast fall embarrassingly short. The writing is narratively air-tight. However, its glaring problems are in creating suspense, urgency, or any moral exploration. I'll first start with urgency, Prisoners is way too laser-focused on delivering your run-of-the-mill detective story to care about making us feel tense. The six days where its the most urgent is nothing more than just a continuous cycle of anger and sadness. When it comes to showing the grueling toll this has on the families, it's mostly carried by senseless screaming, repeated dialogue, or most insultingly, disillusioned (hysterical) characters. Detective Loki is the only one showing the strain of this event, that's mostly thanks to Jake's brilliant performance. Yet most cast members fail to show the same level of performance while the writers fail to give anything for the whole cast to work with.
There is little to no dive into the morality of what Keller is doing. He's shown to be a religious man and yet he has no problem doing what he does. He brings the other family along, but again, he remains un-wavered, even by God and his constant pleas for forgiveness. As quickly as he begs, he returns straight back to his screeches of "TELL ME, TELL ME, TELL ME WHERE THEY ARE!". [cont below]
Goldfinger (1963) - I know a lot of people love this one but I find it to be an average movie overall that I kind of recommend. It’s kind of dull. It had some fun things. I want Oddjob’s hat. I want the Aston Martin. The seduction of Pussy Galore is horrible. Shirley Bassey sung the best James Bond song hands down. I like that they include KFC just to let everyone know that they are in Kentucky.

Monster 2003-What’s the biggest physical transformation an actor has gone through to play their character? To play Aileen Wuornos in Monster, Charlize Theron put on 30 pounds. Fun fact- Charlize Theron won the Academy Award for playing Aileen Wuornos on February 29, 2004, Wuornos' birthday.
