    “Somehow I have the feeling you’ll just keep on growing and go somewhere far away.”
    - Sutemaru

    I feel like I’ve just watched one of the great animations of all time.

  • I'm Not There.

    I'm Not There.

    ★★★★

    Wildly creative. Mecurially truthful. Frustratingly unreachable. 

    All like the legend it recognizes.

    Annihilation

    ★★★★★

    Second viewing in a week, this time on the big screen (I’m lucky enough to have that option). The cinematography of the closing act, ‘The Lighthouse’, from the shot of Natalie Portman standing on the deserted beach, is perfection. It’s a masterpiece of sci-fi moviemaking and absolutely my favourite film of the year so far.

    The rain on the window panes.
    The embers rising from the fire and transforming into the LA cityscape.
    The snow falling onto Agent K.


    ... and those were just the weather and outdoor elements.


    Took the world of Blade Runner and, rather than just paying deference to it, expanded it into a whole new vision.


    Bravo Denis Villeneuve and Roger Deakins!! What an experience.
