Don’t Look Now (1973), Nicolas Roeg ★★★★
The opening scene. Sound effects commensurate with the weather. Slow zoom and the sound adjusts to being closer to the pov. Masterful direction, editing.
Sonatine (1993), Takeshi Kitano ★★★★
Yakuza going to the mattresses.
Comet (2015), Sam Esmail ★★★★
Before trilogy compressed into one film.
Melinda and Melinda (2004), Woody Allen ★★★★
The film opens with Shawn Wallace and Larry Pine, who both acted in the 3 Gregory / Wallace collaborations, discussing the plays that they do, comedies and tragedies respectively, and a member of their party suggests a story, and the versions appear before our eyes.
Gosford Park (2001), Robert Altman ★★★★
Helen Mirren and Maggie Smith in top form, with Kelly Macdonald giving Charlie Chan a run for his money.
The Future (2011), Miranda July ★★★★
It’s unfortunate that she only made two films. The one deleted scene is great.
Kingsman: The Secret Service (2015), Matthew Vaughn ★★
Heaven Is For Real (2014), Randall Wallace ★
White Oleander (2002), Peter Kosminsky ★
