Toshiro Mifune walking is cinema.
Electric. Organic. And a kingdom for a coming of age tale.
Anderson’s journey into an island filled with emotive forests, branching into a complex human story, captivates the wild heart. The diverse colour palette displays, as always, the mental state of our minds reaching into an emotional storm. Perhaps, uncovering a memory for us to remember.
Undoubtedly the joyous sensation is a facade for the droplet of desolation that never evaporates from our sight. Reflecting a sense of realism, humanity, into the symmetrical frames of escapism.
Yet, in the near distance, nothing remains. Dune, a mesmerisingly beautiful illustration of humanities wrongdoing, depicts a rooted narrative diverging into multifarious directions of provocative depth. Subverting Hollywood tropes, whilst displaying the sheer complexity of nature itself, serving as a mirror to humankind’s greed and the species blindness to the most important issue, climate change. The ecological motif serves not only as an obvious connotation to its importance, but also as a symbolical meaning of unity to combat the threat of ignorance and greed.
Cherry is a film equivalent to making dinner out of every available product found in your fridge, and expecting it to be a 5 star Michelin course...until realising in front of your eyes that you have made garbage.
But thank you Anthony and Joe Russo because you have finally proved yourself that you aren't good directors and that you should probably stick to making Marvel films.
I'll give the film a bit of credit...and I do mean a miniscule amount because Tom Holland played Peter Parker who is a drug addict.
Maybe this is another Spiderman dimension.
