REVIEW: "A Most Wanted Man"

Anton Corbijn’s brooding espionage-thriller “A Most Wanted Man” doesn’t follow any popular spy movie blueprint or formula and the movie is better for it. It won’t take audiences long to notice the intentionally deliberate pacing, dialogue-driven suspense, and strong character focus. 507 more words

Punch-Drunk Love - 2002

Remember when you saw “The Truman Show”, “Lost in Translation” or “Dead Poets’ Society” for the first time. It was a bit of a shock wasn’t it, seeing a great comedy actor (Jim Carrey, Bill Murray and Robin Williams respectively) take on a more serious role and gives one of his finest performances to date. 494 more words
