Aquarius, INFP - expect emotional reviews where I probably get too personal or too open. It happens.

  • The Tree of Life

    The Tree of Life

    ★★★★★

    “I will be true to you. Whatever comes.”

    Scenes of an existence, singular, and yet far beyond that of a single life. Life passing by in distinctly fractured moments; precious, sharp, fragile, like glass, broken into non-linearity.

    Existence compiled into minutes - the universe and its creation, humanity’s germination, the will and consequence of our actions, and in all these predicaments the way of grace, kindness, compassion, a river in constant rift and conflict with the way of nature: harsh,…

    Taste of Cherry

    ★★★★★

    The contemplation between life and death is one I’ve always questioned myself; one I’ve personally considered, many times. I’ve always seen it as an easy escape, a quick solution to all my problems; problems I’d only really have if I remained alive (which I have and will try to).

    There was always this question of wether I should take that quick route. Wether it would solve things for anyone, besides myself (quite obviously due to my non-existence if I’d gone…

    One Sings, the Other Doesn't

    ★★★★

    “I’m used to being alone. However, sometimes it weighs heavy sometimes.”

    Brave, bold, essential. A story of friendship, identity, and female liberation, told through a narrative nested through the second wave of feminism and a pastel-based colour palette that brings a tender sense of empathy, compassion and heart to the film. A soulful Agnès Varda social critique that reads like a poem.

  • Cobain: Montage of Heck

    Cobain: Montage of Heck

    ★★★★

    Kurt Cobain. Not as he was perceived, not as he was portrayed in the media, but as he actually was; potent, rebellious, expressive, but also fragmented, flawed, fragile. As unfeigned a portrait of Cobain - as an artist, a father, a husband, a brother, a son, a human - you'll ever get; a distressing open wound into the past, but an honest reflection in that vulnerability.

    I’ll never fully know who Kurt Cobain was, I’ll never get to meet him,…

    Tenet

    ★★★★★

    What do you get when you take a director - who has been at the peak of his career for over a decade now, and seems to show no signs of declining or slowing down - and you give him full artistic and creative freedom to dream out his biggest ambition yet - a wholly unique, original, mind-bending twist on the concept of time? You get this epic, immaculate, globe-trotting, genre-bending, spy-inspired, insane masterclass of a film that is essentially…
