The Congress

Ari Forman’s incredible science-fiction film. It’s a mesmerizing experience that might have Robin Wright’s best performance to date. Forman shows us a future, and performance, we’ve never seen before.

Mr. Nobody

The Congress and Mr. Nobody would make for a perfect double-feature, as both films explore the power of choice in their own ways. This long-delayed drama finally came to the US this year, and it was well worth the wait.

The Wolf of Wall Street

Martin Scorsese’s rise and fall story is his funniest film since After Hours. This epic moves as ruthlessly as its lead, Jordan Belfort (Leonardo DiCaprio), on coke. Belfort is a total buffoon, but what makes The Wolf of Wall Street so great is you still empathize with that buffoon by the end, no matter how insane he acts.

Inside Llewyn Davis

A 104 minute journey all about failure. Sounds fun, right? Well, in the hands of the Coen Brothers, Llewyn Davis self-inflicted woes make for great entertainment and drama.

Her

The most honest movie about relationships is about a man (Joaquin Phoenix) falling in love with his OS (Scarlett Johansson). One of the few filmmakers working today who can fill such a concept with humanity, passion, and care is writer/director Spike Jonze. Like his introverted characters, Jonze just gets people.
