    The Worst Person in the World

    ★★★★½

    easily one of the years finest, Trier’s The Worst Person in the World is a stunning chronicle of the life of Julie, the best of the worst.

    “I feel like a spectator in my own life.”

    this film knows exactly what it wants to be, and it’s confidence shines through in all fields, leaving an impression nothing short of reverence. each and every performance awes; they are grounded and exhume naturality, it’s rare to see performances that truly feel real.

  • Jackie

    Jackie

    ★★★★½

    i've just finished rewatching this film for I believe the 6th time, and i will admit that I had lukewarm feelings towards the film on previous watches, but those have since faded…

    what I admire most about this film, among many things is the visual and directorial choices made. every shot resembles a painting and there is not one decision Larrain makes that does not work. another immense praise is the score by mica levi. beautiful, yet haunting. it alone…

  • Passing

    Passing

    ★★★★

    a stunning directorial debut from rebecca hall, passing is a enthralling adaptation of the novel. performances great all around (thompson and negga are a sublime pair) and cinematography doesn’t get better than this. thought provoking and sensual, this will occupy my mind for a while.

    what a film. SPENCER is a stunning, masterful portrait of Princess Diana, that has you hooked from start to finish.

    I was a bit worried this wouldn’t rub me the right way, as did Pablo Larrian’s previous portrait into a iconic female figure Jackie (liked it, but just about, 3/5) However, I absolutely adored Spencer. Everything in this film works together so seamlessly, and the nearly two hours FLEW by, and had me wanting much, much more by the end…

    Last Night in Soho

    ★★★★

    packed with exhilarating visuals and great performances, last night in soho is a delight. while there were some effects that drew me away from the film and some pacing issues, this is a great film that i would gladly revisit

  • Dune

    Dune

    ★★★½

    amazing film in all aspects, i had goosebumps almost the entire time. however i was lost plotwise for almost the entire time as well, so i definitely think reading the book prior is best.
