    Rope

    ★★★★

    I've always wished for more artistic talent. Well, murder can be an art, too. The power to kill can be just as satisfying as the power to create.

    The final film I'm watching before classes start up tomorrow, and another solid entry into the "gays commit crimes" subgenre of film. Alfred Hitchcock takes a good story and makes it a truly exceptional exercise stretching the limitations of cinema at its time. Told in one location, edited to appear as all…

    Miracle Mile

    ★★★½

    "People are gonna help each other, aren't they? Rebuilding things?"

    Manhunter

    ★★★★

    You've seen these films! Haven't you, my man?

    Shortly before this rewatch of Manhunter, I wrapped up watching the NBC show Hannibal. Overall, I enjoyed it a lot. Mads Mikkelsen is now my new favorite Hannibal Lecter, which should surprise absolutely no one. My favorite aspects of the show were Lecter's relationship with Will Graham, and Will Graham in general. Hugh Dancy seemingly had a tight grip on what makes Graham an intriguing character beyond a conceptual standpoint. You need…
