Sentence & Still

Zero Dark Thirty

Zero Dark Thirty Title Card Zero Dark Thirty Still

Less about Bin Laden, more about the woman behind the search and the events that lead to his assassination; the last scene cripples me every time I watch it.

★★★★★

Michael Clayton

Michael Clayton Title Card Michael Clayton Still

One of the best scripts ever written, deliberate, mythological: a modern masterpiece.

★★★★★

Enemy

Enemy (2014) Title Card Enemy (2014) Still

Beautiful, technical, literary, and lingering — as much about mood as narrative, and devastating, I’ll be thinking on this one for years.

★★★★★

Red Desert

Red Desert (1964) Title Card Red Desert Monica Vitti Still

Angsty, hard to unravel, and timelessly and hauntingly beautiful – it’s easy to see Antonioni’s influence half a century later.
