    I had really high expectations for this after seeing the trailer. It looked like Coppola was going to be making some poignant observations on influencer culture. Instead, the movie is a mess of half-baked ideas and concepts. Occasionally there's a moment of brilliance but overall, this is a mess of a movie with a wasted Andrew Garfield performance!

    Definitely, the movie to watch with your teenager. Smart but not preachy, it really dives into some difficult subject matter. I enjoyed this one quite a bit!

  • Melancholia



    I’ve liked, though not always enjoyed. Lars von Trier’s offerings over the past few years but for some reason, likely the combination of length and expectation, Melancholia escaped me. With his new film due for festival runs this winter, the time seemed ripe to catch up with his 2011 offering. Why did I wait so long?

    Undeniably beautiful, Melancholia is also my favourite of von Trier’s works. It’s his exploration of a woman suffering through depression on her wedding day…

    I have a few issues with it - namely the motivation behind one of the central moments in the 3rd act and a too-long action sequence - but otherwise, it's a total lovefest.

    At one point, I was so joyously happy, I even got a little teary-eyed.
