THE BOTTOM LINE REVIEW: Days of Heaven (1978)

I’m not much of a Malick fan, but I’ve been trying to watch his entire filmography to get a better sense of his style and storytelling, and how he uses it to get a point across. 215 more words

THE BOTTOM LINE REVIEW: Stretch (2014)

Tons of fun. Crude, stylish, and loaded with intense action and bizarre situations, this was definitely an unexpectedly entertaining experience. Very much like a coked-out version of Collateral. 51 more words

THE BOTTOM LINE REVIEW: Birdman (2014)

Fucking magnificent. A fantastic piece of satire in which art truly imitates life. From the oddly comedic and surreal screenplay, to the outstanding performances, to the lavish production design and epic drum solo score, everything about this film is top notch. 174 more words

THE BOTTOM LINE REVIEW: Interstellar (2014)

This is such an incredibly difficult film to review, mainly because I was looking forward to it all year and it pains me to know that there isn’t much I can say about it that works in its favour. 636 more words

THE BOTTOM LINE REVIEW: Wish I Was Here (2014)

I didn’t realize how unbelievably Jewish this film was. It’s like…really Jewish. It’s interesting how the trailers for this film didn’t include anything about this aspect of the film, seeing how it’s such an important part of its identity and story. 62 more words

THE BOTTOM LINE REVIEW: A Most Wanted Man (2014)

A solid, well-crafted, and well-performed political thriller, but nothing we haven’t seen a thousand times before. The subject matter does not appeal to me personally as much as it might to others, so I oftentimes found myself checking my watch throughout, but fans of the genre will likely be pleased with it. 39 more words
