  • The Metamorphosis of Birds

    The Metamorphosis of Birds

    โ˜…โ˜…โ˜…โ˜…โ˜…

    An ode to time. Family. Adolescence. Loss. Growth.

    A love song, which is conducted to intricately, that is impossible to not be in awe of.ย 

    Simply put, one of the most beautiful films that I have ever seen. The journey that you are taken on within this film is so deeply personal, yet is universal. We get to experience the excitement that these people feel, agonize in their grief, endure their hardships. This might be about the directorโ€™s own family, but it could be any family going through this.ย 

    The Metamorphosis of Birds transcends time, language, and emotion. Itโ€™s a raw experience. Itโ€™s a cleansing experience.

  • Climax

    Climax

    โ˜…โ˜…โ˜…โ˜…โ˜…

    Gaspar Noรฉ is a man who is entirely comfortable with his craft. Climax is a culmination of the works that I have seen from him thus far, an explosive cacophony that only he can make. When this is released here in the US, people are going to absolutely hate it. It's going to be one of the most divisive films in recent history, and rightfully so. Here, Noรฉ is at his most unbridled, offering another horrifying glimpse into his nightmares.โ€ฆ

    The Power of the Dog

    Absolutely sublime. Jane Campion is back, and is back at full throttle. From the stunning cinematography (thanks to the wonderful work of Ari Wegner) to the tight script, The Power of the Dog shows that Campion can work in any genre and turn out an unforgettable film. Cumberbatch seems to have been the perfect choice for the role, which he puts all he has into. The Power of the Dog will be a hard bone to chew for some, but itโ€™s certainly worthwhile.

    What a wonderful film Encanto is! I had so much fun with this story, the characters were all relatable, and while the songs were a bit of a hit and miss, the film overall was very strong. It really felt like a magical moment watching this in theaters, and is one that I cannot wait to give another visit to! Itโ€™s a vibrant film that still manages to tap into some deep emotions. Definitely worth visiting a theater to see, itโ€™s one of Disneyโ€™s better films theyโ€™ve released in a long time.

    You're Next

    โ˜…โ˜…โ˜…โ˜…ยฝ

    You're Next proves that horror/thriller films can be stunning with the right people making it.

    You're Next is gritty, gory and surprisingly comedic. These elements have been working well together as of late! This film balances everything out and makes sure everything is done at the perfect time.

    After watching this again, I actually enjoyed it more! I saw the comedic parts and just saw how amazing the filming was. Those grey tones and brown times are to die for! Hence, You're Next is one of the best horror/thrillers to come out in a long time.

    Hitchcock is a master storyteller, and Vertigo is certainly one of his best stories yet.

    What makes this film so intriguing is how complex it is. There are so many layers that are slowly revealed that lead to one of the greatest climaxes of all time. Hitchcock's slow burner slowly gives you the information, making you pay extreme attention to what is going on, or else you are going to be lost.
