    I'm Thinking of Ending Things

    ★★★★★

    This review may contain spoilers. I can handle the truth.

    A seemingly impenetrable enigma from an undeniable genius, I’m Thinking of Ending Things might be clunky and frustratingly self-indulgent but the more I’ve broken it down post-viewing, the more I’d regard it as one of the finest cinematic depictions of the troubled male psyche which Kaufman does best at. Perhaps the film might’ve benefitted from being mediated by a different director, but in many ways the film is wholly original and probably wouldn’t have been as such if it was done…

    Ad Astra

    ★★★

    Really enjoyed Ad Astra. Bit late to the party but nevertheless here as always. awe-inspiring visuals and iconic art direction. Lots of Malick-esque philosophical musings from Pitt’s character. Hoyte Van Hoytema never fails to impress with gorgeous cinematography that echoes glorious space odyssey-esque film emulsion. Can’t argue that this isn’t one of the most original films set in space I’ve seen in recent years. Just a shame the plot sucks.

    Alien: Covenant

    ★★

    The myth that this film is even as remotely as brilliant as the first Aliens instalment will always remain a pure myth. This film is an abundance of mistakes both in continuity and in what it stands for. My only slight gest of appreciation is for new audiences and bringing them into the original Alien films and letting this be a modern-day gateway to discovering those beautiful gems of Horror films. Ridley, not sure what you were doing here.
