  • Barry Lyndon

    ★★★★½

    Kubrick’s got this special thing with him where he takes different periods and pushes them to a higher artistry than most directors can when tackling that specific time without doing anything visually all to outside the world he’s created, because the parts of life he chooses to amplify are always the ones most people choose to gloss over or are too scared to approach, and when taking on a 3 hour period drama epic, it just makes everything that much better. Flawless

    Ingmar Bergman reminds me that saying style>substance is dumb

  • This Is England

    This Is England

    ★★★★½

    Such a tough and conflicting watch. So many different emotions working off of each other through a very short runtime, it was pretty difficult to pin down the tone of some scenes but I do think that it adds a unique perspective on some of these characters. The way Combo’s handled in this movie at first I didn’t like at all but as it went on I started to see how much he added to the realism of the whole…

    If you completely hate this movie I get it, but I would be lying to you if I said my mouth wasn’t wide open from practically start to finish. As soon as the dream sequence scene with Justin Timberlake ended It really started to come together for me that this movie kind of walks the line between an incompetent clusterfuck of shit and unhinged, possible way too ambitious brilliance(this movie is literally a film adaptation of the last 3 books…

    Who Killed Captain Alex?

    ★★★★½

    The first Ugandan action film is actually fucking brilliant. Like what do you even compare this to. The action is sooooo hilariously awful, every single incredibly sped up fight scene had me in tears, and VJ Emmie, one of the best idea’s ever. This guy is gives this movie so much charm and pure bliss, he makes every scene even if supposed to be serious some of the funnies shit I’ve ever seen. There’s so much passion that was put…

    *very interested to see how Pather Panchali will hit me on rewatch with the context of now seeing this film, have a feeling it’ll grow on me

  • Close-Up

    Close-Up

    ★★★★½

    Non linear storytelling at pretty much it’s best. The court room scenes lay down such a great template for some really simple one shot scenes that have a lot of emotional value and have a great perspective on class issues and the lack of care for the lower class. Accompanied by the flashback scenes which are interwoven in between the court scenes so we’ll and add so much context to earlier scenes, it just makes you want to watch it immediately again. Cinematography is very simple but effective in giving room for the script and the direction to shine. Such a powerful watch, loved this
