    Cléo from 5 to 7

    ★★★★★

    if someone were to ask me if there was a single film that has changed my life, i would say cléo from 5 to 7. before i watched cléo, i didn't watch old films, or foreign films, or anything of the sort. when i first watched this, i was in awe, and it introduced me to a whole new world of cinema that i didn't even know existed. but, most importantly, it also introduced me to my hero: agnès. the…

    (i'm sorry this review is so long i had a lot of thoughts)

    hmm. don't really know how to rate this. i enjoyed parts of it for sure, but this film is very flawed. very, very flawed - both on a thematic and filmmaking level.

    it's a complex film for sure, and i'm glad films about rape culture in this manner are finally being made. portrayals of "nice guys" as some of the most evil, manipulative predators have finally been…

    ★★★½

    goregously animated, but the story didn't grab me as much as other ghibli/takahata films. maybe i was just too tired for this today. but the family dynamics and relationships between the characters were absolutely beautiful, as was the folklore inspired world takahata was able to bring to screen.

    ★★★★

    one of the most confrontational films about the entertainment industry ever made, and the boldest entry in spike lee's filmography i've seen so far. it starts off feeling almost surrealist and absurd, with strange, over the top performances shot on low quality mini dv that looks like your family's home videos. and, that feeling doesn't really go away, but it delves into something much more angering and real that is unfortunately still very relevant today. lee holds nothing back, and it packs a punch on every level. i've never seen anything quite like this.

    ★½

    absolutely fucking not.

    106 minutes of sam levinson's self insert character verbally abusing his girlfriend and having the same argument over and over and over. zendaya is good as always, but the rest of this film made me want to bash my head against the wall. an exhausting experience.
