    ★★★★

    Best advertisement I've ever seen. And I don't even like sushi that much.

    Vacant

    ★★★★

    A feeling I am very familiar with. Chilling by your lonely at a favourite spot. Trying to absorb the scenery, relax but at the same time trying to escape.
    Nice job! You made me feel homesick but in a very good way.

    Spring Breakers

    ★★★½

    I really am surprised that no reviews (or at least none of the ones I read) mention Alien's resemblance to Riff Raff. They're almost identical, both their appearance and their behaviour. Riff Raff put out a track about it and felt honoured but also annoyed that he wasn't in the movie. I think Korine directed one of his music videos (starring Franco as Riff) to make it up to him.

    ★★★★

    At times funny but mostly heartbreaking, guaranteed to make you uncomfortable. Addresses matters such as parenthood, poverty, longing for intimacy while trapped in a hopeless situation. While watching I was having mixed feelings for the main character. I was feeling for her and was being judgemental at the same time (I know I shouldn't but nobody's perfect 🙃).
    'The Florida Project' must have drawn huge influence from this one.
