A visually interesting film that celebrates music by complementing the songs and pieces with its simple but expressive art style, On-Gaku: Our Sound is a funny and light feat that you won’t regret experiencing.
I am familiar with the murder of Fred Hampton before going into the movie, and it’s interesting seeing the history from O’Neal’s side. I have been learning about communist revolutionaries and there’s always so much bloodshed and sacrifice. We’re still struggling. And it’s always good when more people are learning about these important histories. The film depicted the story really well. And Kaluuya did a great job playing Fred Hampton, a brilliant, beautiful young man who died for the people.
It’s imperfect but it made me extremely happy. The film exceeded my expectations and delivered a bold and fun ride full of glitter and fireworks. Just like Harley, Birds of Prey is a fascinating puzzle box that is both raw and violent as well as cute and fluffy. It’s visually stunning and it’s clear that Cathy Yan already has an uncompromising style. The film is fast-paced but spends sufficient time to make Harley a great character. It’s also filled with emotional moments that help bring out the humanity of each “bird”.
- Especially Huntress, Huntress is a perfect angel.
This review may contain spoilers. I can handle the truth.
The film guides audiences into Marianne and Héloïse’s short but fiery relationship with masterful cinematic language. It’s practically perfect in the way it creates a romance so beautiful that even when it’s shattered right in front of your eyes, it still inspires you to crave the expression of love. Aside from the exquisitely sweet relationship, the film also reveals a place where women can momentarily hide from a cruel patriarchal world, a world that snuffed out the possibility of a happy and loving life.
