Everything is Illuminated (Liev Schreiber – 2004) B+

A quirky film that had me smiling through the first hour before it took a turn into a field of sunflowers. That beautiful scene is where this light quirky comedy (the potato routine was one of the best) turned into a somber somewhat sad drama.

A History Of Violence (David Cronenberg – 2005) B+

It took a while for this one to sink in, I was honestly going to give it a lower rating but then what seemed like a film missing an ending or a purpose made sense. It is all there, maybe not a neat package but it is there and I could not stop thinking about it. Also, the performances by Harris and Hurt are quiet sensational.
