Breaking Bad - "Face Off"

My piece on "Face Off," the season finale of Breaking Bad, is up at spinetingler.

Read that shit HERE.

Nice direction from Gilligan in this one, especially liked the numerous badass front-facing tracking shots, Gus' entrance into the nursing home even putting some funky, modern Morricone music on there to make it feel like the end of a Leone movie.

Breaking Bad - "End Times"

My review of the penultimate episode of season four of Breaking Bad, "End Times," is up at spinetingler.

Check that shit out here.

Vince Gilligan directed himself directed this episode and man oh man did he bust out some style with it.

What is it with show creators flashily directing "big" episodes of their shows? David Chase and Matthew Weiner are major offenders on Sopranos and Mad Men.
