Coherence

A minimalist sci-fi concept movie that is well-executed and compelling.

Training Day

This movie has a look and feel that is immersive and tense, and despite Fuqua’s continued and celebrated career, Training Day set a bar that I doubt he’ll ever reach again.

Stranger Than Fiction

The MacGuffin

The MacGuffin has fueled the creativity of filmmakers for decades. It has sent heroes running into danger and villains on murderous rampages.

Nightcrawler
