Following - B+

I feel a little silly watching a classic film like Kagemusha and gushing about how brilliant it is (of course it's brilliant), but really, it's brilliant. This films gets criticized in some circles for it's pacing, but I was never bored once. Compares favorably to Seven Samurai in my opinion, though it's a different kind of movie. Makes me want to watch more Kurosawa. A

Following - Taut little 70 minute low-budget thriller from early in Nolan's career. There were a couple of plot points that were implausible, but when I thought about it, they weren't really important to the story so in that respect they just kind of serve to add to the irony of the situation. Very good for what it is. B+
