    ★★★★

    I Am Not Your Negro:

    This film is absolutely beautiful. (I feel as if this is kind of an understatement) Not only is this film a beautiful documentary, it almost feels like poetry. The words written by James Baldwin and that are spoken by Samuel Jackson, feel as though if they have weight to them. As if your in the mind of Baldwin himself. With the documentary tackling an issue/subject, that's hugely “touchy” here in the states. It gives a…

    Something In the Air (Après Mai):

    Olivier Assayas film something in the air tells a story of group about a teenagers during the summer of 1960. (an important year according to my professor) Despite being a coming of age film, Something In the Air tackles the feeling of being lost and not really knowing what's going on in life. A feeling everyone goes through in life. The main character within the film Gilles (played by Clément Métayer) is often times…
