Does what Terrence Malick tried to do with KNIGHT OF CUPS. Cinematographer Christopher Doyle is on fire. Tadanobu Asano, so effing cool.
"I've got a plan. It might get us both killed, but if it works it'll be a totally boss story. Cool?" The Rock
Out to own today:
Witty stop-animation existential crisis from Charlie Kaufman.
My review: http://www.filmaluation.com/anomalisa.html
From the director of THE ORPHANAGE and THE IMPOSSIBLE:
FORTITUDE [season one] ★★★★☆
Modern Western set in the Arctic Circle. Murder mystery conspiracy elevated by myriad of agendas.
Director Jeff Nichols hasn't put a foot wrong so far.
Melissa McCarthy is talented, but it seems like her best only comes out when collaborating with director Paul Feig. Where are the jokes in this trailer?

Brains and soul are key; but adrenaline junkies do not fret, there is also much love for an experience that delivers a sucker-punch to the guts via stunningly delivered thrills.
The evaluation of a film
Verb, "to filmaluate”:
To evaluate a film
I am well aware how difficult it is to make a film, put on a stage play, create a television show, write a novel, let alone make something of note. (That appreciation doesn’t stop me from having high standards though.)
