Starred Up (2013)

Eric Love, 19, is locked up in prison. On the first day, he assaults another inmate and several guards. He’s offered group therapy and his dad, an inmate as well, tries to talk sense into him. Can he be rehabilitated?

Instantly one of my favorite prison dramas after this first watch. Ben Mendelsohn is great but Jack O’Connell carries the film so well. He seems like he should be a bigger star. I definitely want to check out more of his roles. He plays every emotion with precision and believability. Director David Mackenzie leaves it just unpolished enough that it has an almost documentary feel to it. Highly recommended. (4.5/5)

Drugstore Cowboy (1989)

“A pharmacy-robbing dope fiend and his crew pop pills and evade the law.”

Something didn’t click with me here but I do think this was really good. Matt Dillon was fantastic as the leader of a group of bumbling junkies who are constantly looking for their next score while avoiding James Remar. Gus Van Sant delivers a stylish but realistic look at the seedy drug life of those who live on the fringes of society. (4/5)

Session 9 (2001)

Tensions rise within an asbestos cleaning crew as they work in an abandoned mental hospital with a horrific past that seems to be coming back.

I have lost count on how many times I have seen this movie but I love introducing it to people and watching it with them the first time. This is a great horror movie that is sorely overlooked and not talked about enough. With rewatches of my favorite movies, I like to focus on different aspects of the film and this time I really paid attention to the setting and the background of each scene. Being filmed at an actual asylum, the feel of this film is all the more creepy. Events of the film just felt more skin-crawling than it being on a set or somewhere dressed up to look abandoned. WATCH THIS MOVIE! (4.5/5)
