Great video essay on Snowpiercer.
Medium Cool is a masterpiece. Too bad Wexler never got the chance to direct more movies.That's an unfair comparison. Transformers is cynically made and has great contempt for it's audience and humanity. Whereas Lucy, however dumb it may be, at least tries to be redemptive, plus it's a great action movie and Scarlett Johansson was great, although not as great as she was in Under the Skin.Did anyone else pick this up durning B&N's half off sale?  Also I have a code for a...

It's good but not as good as his The Story of Qui Ju, which is a masterpiece.  
Hey man, Paul Thomas Anderson knows better. So the question you should be asking is 'why did he tell the story in such an unconventional way.'
I'd hardly call Kubrick "fast paced." Argo is a dull and pretentious movie that rewrites history. And regarding Gone Girl: I'd be remiss if I didn't share this.  The restrained camera has a very distancing effect and I can't figure out if it is a strength or a weakness.
You would think Salt to be a mere propaganda picture but then you see Harlan County, USA and realize they didn't exaggerate anything.
This picture paints a rather bleak portrait of Bulgaria.   The Avengers: Age of Ultron or what happens when the Avengers encounter their logical extreme. Joss Whedon does remarkable work given the binding constraints inherent to the Avengers.  
Great film. Have you seen Kind Hearts and Coronets? Alec Guinness plays eight characters and pretty much nails it. PSA: Janus Films/The Criterion Collection have restored Apu Trilogy (one of my most favorite trilogies) and, having seen the copy of the original negative, can say they've done a remarkable job. I can't wait to see it on the big screen.
Kornél Mundruczó, who is seemingly an angry vegetarian, took a page out of Quentin Tarantino's book, creating a fairy tale/revenge flick, that unfortunately has as all the same drawbacks as Tarantino's post Jackie Brown years.
