    Chungking Express

    ★★★★★

    Wong Kar-Wai's ‘Chungking Express’ is a beautiful work of Hong Kong cinema, a phenomenal story of modern relationships told in modern times, a story of human melancholy and loneliness met with a lingering feeling of optimism and hope. After really enjoying ‘Fallen Angels’, I was eager to see what this film would offer and I’d say this is one of the most uplifting and introspective films I’ve seen amongst its more pessimistic themes. Even when life can bring us to…

    Sorry to Bother You

    Boots Riley’s ‘Sorry to Bother You’ is overrated and apathetic communist propaganda that functions like a mishandled version of a ‘Black Mirror’ episode.

We all have the right to our own opinions after all, you like…

    Wonder Woman

    ★★

    Well, I gave in and saw it. As much discontent I have for the DCEU, I decided to give them another chance, and with that, here’s my take on ‘Wonder Woman’. I didn’t have very high hopes going in, let me be clear, but I didn’t walk away angry like I usually do. Was this a great film? Nope. Was it downright horrible? Nope. It’s a serviceable run-of-the-mill-fish-out-of-water-origin-story-with-semi-decent-characters-and-action-set-pieces, the end. Alright fine, I’ll dig deeper. The biggest worry for me…
