Three Identical Strangers (2018)

STORY – 1
DIRECTOR – 1
MUSIC – 0
CULT – 1

VERDICT – 3/4

 
PROS –
1) A monumental scientific experiment of nature vs nurture. The real answers can be given only either by Peter B. Neubauer or the sealed records in Yale University after 2065.
2) This is some scary The Boys from Brazil (1978) stuff.

 
CONS –
N/A

 
QUOTE –
Natasha Josefowitz: People don’t like to hear, they say, “I have free will.” We would prefer that we have some influence over our lives. Wouldn’t you rather know that’? That you have some control over this and so finding out, never mind, doesn’t matter what you do. So, I think it’s upsetting to people to see how little influence they have, how little control they have. We don’t like that, we fight that.

Get Me Roger Stone (2017)

STORY – 1
DIRECTOR – 0
MUSIC – 0
CULT – 0

 

VERDICT – 2/4

 

PROS –
1) Story of one of the greatest king-maker in the modern-day USA. A must watch for a political science student.
2) The step by step timeline run up the 2016 campaign.
3) Stone’s rules

 

CONS –
1) Plane narrative. No juicy event-montage with a classic number in the background.
