Logan Lucky

When thinking about Steven Soderbergh’s Logan Lucky, I keep flashing back to something Stu Redman said in the 1994 TV adaptation of Stephen King’s “The Stand”: “Redneck don’t mean stupid.” If Soderbergh’s trilogy of Ocean’s films were finely-tuned jazz-funk, consider Logan Lucky to be its scruffier skiffle-band cousin.

Inherent Vice

Famed arthouse director Paul Thomas Anderson’s films are known for their interesting scripts, sprawling cast ensembles, odd twists, and wonderfully off-beat characterizations, often bordering on playful caricature.

“Inherent Vice” – Mike’s Review

To some audiences (and I won’t profess to know who they are), “Inherent Vice” is probably that ingenious fusion of noir crime saga and culturally insightful stoner satire that is being hailed as “one of the best pictures of the year”.
