    Film #103 of 2022

    Wow, a hypnotic and haunting film. Right from the get go, the film has a dream like atmosphere that completely immerses you within it and keeps you hooked. I also really appreciated the almost timelessness of the film's world where we didn't know when this was taking place. It added to the surrealist vibes that I notice Luca Guadagnino goes for in his films. I loved the score and especially the cinematography, capturing beautifully the vastness…

I longed for a sense of closure with my…

    A striking film that takes an uncompromising look into an immensely contentious global issue, a film that really makes you think, squirm and especially ponder about the struggles women have faced in the past and still face today regarding reproductive rights. Audrey Diwan did a wonderful job at telling this story and the performance by leading lady Anamaria Vartolomei was incredible. Similar to Never Rarely Sometimes Always (2020), Happening goes for a straightforward yet minimalistic approach…
