Quentin Tarantino delivers one fantastic ride, with great stylized action, a gratifying revenge plot, and memorable, wonderful performances.

Subversive in every way shape and form, wickedly and uncomfortably funny, and endlessly creative, this is a fantastic deconstruction of horror films, and ironically one of the greatest horror films of all time.

Killer Joe (2011)
Nihilistic, unrelentingly savage, and shocking, this film takes a basic plot and twists it on its head so far, that this film is anything but predictable. Beautifully shot, and fantastic performances all around, this is a must see for those who can stomach it.

An intelligent, engrossing and absolutely astonishing insight into the manhunt for Osama bin Laden. Bigelow clearly knows what she's doing behind the camera. One of the best films ever made, period.

It's occasionally a bit too self-referential, but nevertheless it's a brilliant dark comedy, that's just as hilarious as it is unapologetically grotesque.

Is it predictable, yes. But the characters are so charming, and the story is so engaging that you get sucked into this dilemma, and the situations are so original and quirky that it you want to know what's going to happen. One of the best contemporary romances.
