All the Money in the World. It’s perfectly fine! I didn’t know until afterward they re-shot so much of the movie. I respect it for that more than I actually enjoyed it. I will probably never see it again, which always feels a little bit bittersweet. Filed under: Ridley Scott.
The Departed. Third, maybe fourth viewing. Somehow it’s compulsively watchable but I don’t actually like it that much? I like the Japanese original Infernal Affairs more, I think. Filed under: Martin Scorsese.
Boogie Nights. It’s not my movie, but it’s a great movie.
Three Kings. The setting is Iraq at the end of the Gulf War, when bored/greedy soldiers go in search of stolen Kuwaiti gold and get in over their heads. It veers from buddy-movie hijinks to touching moments to graphic battle scenes and never rests, never goes wrong. Very highly recommended. Ebert says.
