    Inside Llewyn Davis

    ★★★★★

    A few days ago, I posted a review in which I opened up about sexual abuse that occurred in my childhood. It was tough to write, but after posting, I was overwhelmed by everyone's support. I wasn't expecting the review to get so much exposure, but I'm grateful that it did. Thanks to everyone's support, I'm now taking the next steps in the healing process as I've enrolled in counselling through my university. I couldn't do it without you guys,…

    Hey everyone, this is likely the most personal review I’ll ever write, and one of the toughest reviews I’ve ever written and shared with people. I’m going to share something that I’ve never shared with anyone, how I am inextricably linked to this film.

    When I was a child, I was sexually abused. I don’t have a lot of recollection of the event since I was only 5 or 6, but it very much so happened and this film has…

    Don't Look Now

    ★★★★

    This was recommended to me by MatureGambino a while ago and I’m finally getting around to it, but it was a bizarre and intimate film about grief.

    I remember hearing somewhere that in filmmaking, editing is an invisible language, set out to make the the viewers wholly unaware of the fact that it exists. In Don't Look Now, however, the editing forces you to become aware of its presence, it often splices two seemingly unrelated clips together in ways that make…

    I Lost My Body

    ★★★½

    This is a super unique animated film, I really liked the parallels between a hand searching for its body and a young man searching for his purpose. The music was great and the animation was also really great. I wasn’t expecting to feel such a wide range of emotions watching a disembodied hand, but I’m definitely not complaining.

  • Black Christmas

    Black Christmas

    ★★★★

    For whatever reason, horror movies usually don’t get under my skin too much, so as a result they don’t tend to scare me. With Black Christmas, there was an overwhelming sense of dread that I don’t often see, I was scared. Sorority girls are terrorized by a man in their attic over winter break as he slowly picks them off one at a time and calls them to play with them. The dramatic irony of the killer being right under…

    The Fabulous Baron Munchausen

    ★★★★★

    This is one of the most charming and imaginative films I have ever seen. Nothing I have seen thus far has come close to this in terms of visual style as the color grading is just something else, like something out of a children’s story book. This somehow exists independently of film criticism in my eyes, there are logical inconsistencies, but I excuse them as the film never takes itself seriously, so these inconsistencies further add to the charm of…
