Film Log 6.26.2015

Mad Max: Fury Road (2015)

Director: George Miller
Number of viewings: 1

Comments: Favorite action film of the year so far. I hope the franchise continues if this is the direction George Miller is taking it. The almost 2 hour runtime flew by so fast. Modern action filmmaking should start with this film. CGI in service of the story and action.

While We're Young (2014)

Director: Noah Baumbach
Number of viewings: 1

Comments: A film that realistically portrays hipsters. The Squid and the Whale (2005) then Frances Ha (2012) and now this film, Baumbach is a cinema god. Ben Stiller and Naomi Watts had great chemistry. Ending felt right; happy but earned. Adam Driver is accurately annoying and yet I want to be the character he plays in this film.
