    This is Scorsese's most violent film.

    The Story of Film: An Odyssey

    ★★★★★

    A fully comprehensive 15 hour docu-series showing exactly what the title promises: The Story of Film.

    It's one of my absolute favorite documentaries and I wholeheartedly recommend it to any lover of the craft.

    ★★★½

    This review may contain spoilers. I can handle the truth.

    I was hooked from the very beginning. It was exciting to see Hitchcock work in the style and flavors of the early 70s. Overall, it's much better than I've heard to expect from his later work.

    The film slowly builds as a gritty thriller only for the third act to feel like such a tepid letdown. After it seems like the villain has won, we're stuck following around a practically brand new character, as he sits down with his wife…

  • The Man from U.N.C.L.E.

    ★★★★

    Style over substance but in a good way.

    ★★

    Beneath the thin dialogue, formulaic plot, and tacky CGI, lies what could have been an interesting action-thriller.
