New Favorite - 'Force Majeure'
Whenever someone asks me what my favorite movie is, I have to think of the most recent one I've seen, because I love movies so I just defer to 'most recent' instead of 'of all time'. I think it's a waste of time qualifying which one you particularly like out of all the movies in the world because that's changed for me over time. So here's my new favorite.
This is a very detailed, seamless, and believable story that calls out a generation of man-children.
In the above picture this father is taking a picture of an incoming avalanche that is terrifying his children and wife. Each frame in this movie is storytelling at its best.
Some of the scenes ran much like a sketch, with three beats heightening within the bounds of realism; others ran like a psychological thriller, with tension punctuated by a subtle joke, usually at the expense of modern man's pride; others were silent, ethereal poems that underscored the comic tragedy of our era's shifting values.
