  • The Invisible Man

    The Invisible Man

    ★★★★★

    Tom Griffin: The only thing more brilliant than inventing something that makes you invisible, is coming up with the perfect way to torture you, even in death. Adrian’s true genius was how he got in people’s heads.

    For most of, if not all, of my school life, I was bullied. There were days when it was at a level where I could try and pass it off as banter, try and tell myself I was their mate, and there were…

  • Parasite

    Parasite

    ★★★★★

    Ki-taek: They are rich but still nice. 
    Chung-sook: They are nice because they are rich.

    Some smell people. Some people smell. The difference between the two is simultaneously infinitesimally small and large enough to create an abyssal hole that tears us apart. The class divide is poised on a knife edge, and moment to moment the sharp point chooses who it will cut next. Still a masterpiece. Still must be seen. Still something singularly extraordinary. Parasite is what cinema was made for. Seek it out.

  • Wild Strawberries

    Wild Strawberries

    ★★★★★

    Criterion Collection - Ingmar Bergman’s Cinema

    Opening Night (Films 1-9)

    #04 - Wild Strawberries (1957)

    Professor Isak Borg: If I have been feeling worried or sad during the day, I have a habit of recalling scenes from childhood to calm me. So it was this evening.

    I found the experience of watching Wild Strawberries for the first time somewhat overwhelming. In shades it called to mind A Christmas Carol, with the ghosts of the past and visions of the future…

    A Ship to India

    ★★½

    Criterion Collection - Ingmar Bergman’s Cinema

    Opening Night (Films 1-9)

    #03 - A Ship to India (1947)

    Sally: We all need someone to love. Or else we might as well be dead.

    Three films down, three tales of parents and their children having it off with the same person, two involving a suicide and one an attempted suicide. You guys weren’t kidding when you said these things were heavy!

    The way Bergman explores the complicated dynamics of human relationships and…

  • BlacKkKlansman

    BlacKkKlansman

    ★★★★★

    ‪Master Provoc-auteur Spike Lee’s BlacKkKlansman is the single most powerful film against racism and Trump’s America that there has been or will be. Absolutely electrifying, funny and terrifying, entertaining and yet incredibly disconcerting... the world is fucked up, there are problems in our global society that have gone too long unresolved, and Lee may well be the answer to a lot of things... and if he is not, then he’s sure as hell got some questions to ask and knows…

  • Avengers: Infinity War

    Avengers: Infinity War

    ★★★★★

    In time, you will know what it's like to lose. To feel so desperately that you're right. Yet to fail all the same. Dread it. Run from it. Destiny still arrives.

    UNPRECEDENTED. UNPARALLELED. UNBELIEVABLE.

    Avengers Infinity War is so much more than a culmination of Marvel’s 10 year empire building, it is the pinnacle of blockbuster film and shall be looked back on as an epoch of cinema in years to come. The Russo brothers have handled the Marvel Cinematic…
