Each character is a tribute to crooks from GTA’s history. With his mafioso swagger and obsession with 80s movie quotes, Michael is Vice City’s Tommy Vercetti. Franklin is San Andreas’ Carl Johnson. And Trevor? Trevor may well be you. Trevor is the Grand Theft Auto player that causes carnage and squelches pedestrians just to achieve a five-star wanted rating and watch the following mayhem unfold. He is the twisted, ugly reflection of all the nasty stuff that GTA lets you do but rarely explicitly encourages. Rockstar wants you to look at his face and feel uncomfortable. And it works. http://www.telegraph.co.uk/technology/video-games/10312515/GTA-5-review.html
This is hi-fi, okay? High. Fidelity. You know what that means? That means this is the highest quality fidelity. Hi-fi. Two very important things in a stereo system… I have this very unit in my home, but I got it modified with the TK-421, which kicks it up another three or four, uh, quads per channel. But that’s just technical talk, that doesn’t concern you. — Buck Swope

Un prophète (2009)

Finally watched this film directed by Jacques Audiard. This is my first foray into French films and I absolutely loved it. I recently heard of this film after reading that Hollywood will be producing a remake of it (psshh). If you’re into prison films, suspenseful films, or films with gritty uncomfortable realism, definitely take this one in with your eyeball holes. At times it reminded me of some of South Korea’s more violent revenge action flicks, which, to me, is a good thing. Many critics hail this as a modern crime classic, and, while I don’t think it hits the mark quite as high as Goodfellas, City of God, or A Bittersweet Life. It’s still, absolutely, one of the best films of the past few years.
