||The Farewell (2019) - Dec 30, 2019
"strong first half falls flat in the second half, resorts to using cliches (wedding montage, feel-good ending, etc.). Awkwafina is underutilised, all the punches are pulled in the end"
||Bye Bye Blue Bird (1999) - Dec 13, 2019
"valuable for all the insight it gives into the experience of being connected to Faroe Islands, but otherwise its meandering leads it to fall flat"
||Her Smell (2019) - Oct 20, 2019
"there's a lot great about this including an incredible performance by Elizabeth Moss and an amazing cast in general, but ultimately it doesn't significantly stand out among all the other 'self-destructive performer' narratives"
||House (1977) - Oct 07, 2019
"a lot of fun and Oubayashi's work has a marked influence on a later generation of filmmakers like Nakashima, also memorable score, but something feels missing by the end. would revisit"
