    I mean, anything can sound like that if you simplify it enough. "A not-Bay-braindead blockbuster that still needs to have like almost 60 pure minutes of hand-holding explaining and explaining? Some ambition."
    Midnight Run (1988) - 9
    The Smiling Lieutenant (1931) - 8.5
    The Adventures of Robinhood (1938) - 8
    Sisters (1973) - 6.5
    Shin Godzilla (2016) - 7.5

    The specific definition of ambition is letting Sean Penn ramble for 60 minutes to get 30 seconds of dialog.
    It ain't the process that counts, it's the results.
    Just because...
    Devi (Satyajit Ray, 1960) mild
    The French Dispatch of the Liberty, Kansas Evening Sun (Wes Anderson, 2021) warm
    High Sierra (Raoul Walsh, 1941) mild

    The last book I read was...
    The Tenant of Wildfell Hall by Anne Brontë

    The best thing about Nolan is the shit fights he inspires online. Not bad for a dude who made his best movie 20 years ago.

    # 19. True Grit



    You must pay for everything in this world, one way and another. There is nothing free except the grace of God.

    USA
    A stubborn teenager enlists the help of a tough U.S. Marshal to track down her father's murderer.

    Without comparing the film to John Wayne's original of 1969, the Coen's version stands on its own with noteworthy performances by Jeff Bridges and newcomer Hailee Steinfeld. -- Kiko Martinez, San Antonio Current

    After seeing it a second time in theaters, I'm 100% convinced its quite better than the original. Although I still think The Duke>The Dude in the title role. -- Madman

    #16. Another Year



    I'm very much a glass-half-full kind of girl. But it's tricky, because... I meet these older men who want somebody younger, and that's great, because I fit the bill. But... when they find out that... you know, I'm not as young as they thought, they don't want to know. My looks work against me.

    Directed by Mike Leigh
    UK
    A look at four seasons in the lives of a happily married couple and their relationships with their family and friends.

    Awards
    Best Actress (Lesley Manville), AARP Movies for Grownups
    Best Foreign Feature Film, Amanda Awards, Norway
    Special Mention of the Ecumenical Jury at Cannes for Mike Leigh
    Best Supporting Actress (Lesley Manville) and Best Ensemble Cast, Chlotrudis Awards
    Best Foreign Film, French Syndicate of Cinema Critics

    Another year, another 100 things to celebrate and mourn-and another film that makes me appreciate how good cinema can make me feel. -- Amie Simon, Three Imaginary Girls

    Tell me how I should be. Just tell me. I'll do it.

    #13. Winter's Bone



    You always have scared me.
    That's cuz you're smart.

    Directed by Debra Granik
    US
    An unflinching Ozark Mountain girl hacks through dangerous social terrain as she hunts down her drug-dealing father while trying to keep her family intact.

    Awards
    Movie of the Year, AFI Awards
    Best Woman Director & Achievement (Debra Granik), Best Breakthrough Performance (Jennifer Lawrence), Alliance of Women Film Journalists
    Best Film, Amazonas Film Festival
    Honorable Mention at the Awards Circuit Community Awards
    C.I.C.A.E. Award, Berlin Film Fesitval

    A rewarding, richly detailed exploration of the strength of character required when confronted by ugly truths. -- Jim Schembri, The Age

    There's a lot to like about this movie if you're a fan of film noirs. The difference between this and something like Brick which is also a sort of film noir, is that Winter's Bone doesn't seem to be making it too obvious that it's using that type of structure. -- Ezee E

    I got 2/8 so far. Surprised True Grit didn’t do better.
    Midnight Run (1988) - 9
    The Smiling Lieutenant (1931) - 8.5
    The Adventures of Robinhood (1938) - 8
    Sisters (1973) - 6.5

    As for the Nolan/PTA/Malick side-topic, using my average scores of their filmography as one metric turn out to be PTA (8.44) > Nolan (8.4) > Malick (7.9). But in term of optics, I always find myself indifferent to watching another PTA until I actually watch them and find most from really good to great. And Malick is really hurt from the three film stretch of Knights of Cup, Voyage of Time, and Song to Song, or else his average would put him as my #1.

    I don't think I've seen a Malick movie I've liked. I blind bought ToL because it was new for a dollar at a surplus store lol.

    I just realized I have Knight of Cups on my "to watch" shelf for same reason. :/
