76% The White Balloon (1995) - Sep 15, 2019
"Essentially a parable, told through the simplest of stories serviceable only as a framework for reflections on morality, poverty and self-seeking behaviour. Even its title, while misleading at first, ultimately proves prescient, as the color white is often associated with goodness, innocence and purity of heart. A great film from a great filmmaker."
76% Gisaengchung (2019) - Sep 13, 2019
"Unless everything works in perfect cohesion, too many ingredients can spoil your recipe. Covering different genres and a variety of characters - most of which lack depth and nuance - Parasite makes for a tough balancing act which Joon-Ho almost pulls off perfectly, had it not been for some questionable character decisions and a superfluous, misguided epilogue. From a pure filmmaking standpoint, though, it’s quite a treat."
76% I Am Cuba (1964) - Sep 08, 2019
"To give you an idea of how insanely good the camera work is, I must've taken my phone out at least twice to snap a picture of one of the many amazing shots this film had to offer. With such distinct, almost fastidious approach to framing and composition, I wasn't surprised at all to find out its DP Sergey Urusevsky was a photography enthusiast. Not every segment leaves an equally lasting impression, something I think a tighter edit could've fixed, but as a whole, Soy Cuba is essential viewing."
89% Blow-Up (1966) - Aug 29, 2019
"(2nd viewing) People believe whatever they want to believe, no matter how far removed from reality self-delusion can carry them. Having finally rewatched Blow-Up after more than 10 years, I was surprised and pleased to have found myself as challenged by its form as I was by its content, told here through minimalistic visual language, some pretty sweet editing and a final scene that brilliantly ties together the plot and characterization to a great end."
35% Hobbs and Shaw (2019) - Aug 27, 2019
"[Universal executives]: So how much action and banter are we talking about? [The Rock]: Yes."
22% De Patrick (2019) - Aug 27, 2019
"De Penis."
56% Once Upon a Time in Hollywood (2019) - Aug 16, 2019
"If I didn't know any better, I'd have thought this film was produced by Rockstar Games: incredibly authentic and richly detailed, but after a while, you realize you wasted your money on something where almost nothing fucking happens."
15% Midsommar (2019) - Aug 04, 2019
"As with Hereditary, this is another film from Aster with a revolting penchant for provocative and exploitative imagery, barely held together by a story (?) that continuously favors the sensational over the substantial. I never thought I'd say this, but as much as I love A24 for allowing auteurs for their visions and voices to be heard, I don't think movies like this should be encouraged or greenlit to begin with. Fool me twice."
35% Captain Fantastic (2016) - Jul 27, 2019
"Man, must be nice to reject the luxuries and comforts of modern life, live by an anti-capitalist ideology, and have rich in-laws as a back-up plan. "Her body is not cremating fast enough, quick, let’d do an AC/DC cover!""
76% American Graffiti (1973) - Jul 20, 2019
"Making a plotless movie is not an easy thing to pull off, yet Lucas does a great job at capturing a specific time and place that manages to feel as fresh, fun and exciting as I'm sure it must have been back in the day. This mood is further deepened by a rich cast of characters, all with their own distinct voices and unique personalities. On a final note, the soundtrack is an absolute winner, one I caught myself singing and dancing to during pretty much its entire running time. Great flick."
