"Couldn't get more awkward and hilarious than this. Strikes a perfect balance between cringe, self-doubt and social horror. An enthralling debut that few filmmakers can pull off. Felt so awkward I had to pause a million times."

"If only the succint performances and somber cinematography weren't undermined by the casual approach Minamata takes in telling its story, it would have surely reached its full potential as a haeartbreaking story based on real life. Regardless Depp and Bages' authenticity alone deserves praise."

"A simple yet poignant romance. A story of two people yearning for a love that is destined to be doomed. Authentic acting and meandering pace complement each other for a good tone. A more directional handling of its themes could have enhanced it. Nonetheless, the emotional restraint of the narrative is captivating."
|80 80%||Jojo Rabbit (2019) - Jun 11, 2021
"Jojo Rabbit finds a perfect balance between satire and drama. Served with bright color palettes and organic humor is a sad and humane story of love and hate. Especially loved how Taika's Hitler is a caricature one moment and almost too real in another."
|60 27%||Never Let Me Go (2010) - Jun 10, 2021
"Never Let Me Go is a poignant and philosophical reflection of an alternate world where some children are raised to give away their life for humankind. It is surprisingly undramatic for its premise. This inertness embraces some and keeps others at an arm's length from fully immersing in the emotion. Sadly, I am part of the latter. Even then the movie is beautifully shot, well-acted, and deserves merit for an aching experience that keeps chipping away your heart."
