Film Review: Rust and Bone (2012)

“I liked being watched. I liked turning guys on. Getting them worked up. But then I’d get bored.”–Stephanie When we first see Stephanie she is leaving a night club. She was just in a fight and her face is bloody. The damage looks painful but she doesn’t look like she feels anything.

Film Review: Match Point (2005)

“The man who said “I’d rather be lucky than good” saw deeply into life. People are afraid to face how great a part of life is dependent on luck. It’s scary to think so much is out of one’s control.
