The Departed [2006] ★★★★

Martin Scorsesse has been terrific over the years. With movies like “Raging Bull”, “Goodfellas”, “Gangs Of New York”, and even the underrated “King Of Comedy” on his résumé, the man can be proud. “The Departed” won him his first oscar as a director, and let me just say: it was […]

The Social Network [2010] ★★★½

Everything you need to know about Mark Zuckerberg, the founder of the social networking site facebook, his lawsuit against co-founder Eduardo Saverin and the Winklevoss brothers (who claimed he’d stolen their idea) can all be found in David Fincher’s movie “The Social Network”.

The Third Man [1949] ★★★★

 “In Italy for 30 years under the Borgias they had warfare, terror, murder, and bloodshed, but they produced Michelangelo, Leonardo da Vinci, and the Renaissance.  In Switzerland they had brotherly love – they had 500 years of democracy and peace, and what did that produce? The cuckoo clock”. Terrific […]

Inception [2010] ★★★½

”Inception” is a movie that requires a lot of attention. And like most of Christopher Nolan’s movies (“Memento”, “The prestige”…), it will take your brain on a rollercoaster ride. The story is so beautifully crafted, that it’s almost impossible to find a plot hole. So far this year, […]
