    Things We Lost in the Fire was one of the most underrated films of last year, and Del Toro’s performance is a career best for him, in an already impressive career. I loved this film. I had read the script a year or two before the film came out and I remember being blown away byt it. I was moved to tears while reading it, and then when watching it in the theater. It’s a great film.

    Body of Lies is gonna have a tough time at the box office…I can feel it. I am very excited to see it, as I love all things Ridley, but this is not the kind of film people want to see at the moment. I hope I am wrong but I don’t think I will be.
