    The Trial of the Chicago 7

    ★★★

    This review may contain spoilers. I can handle the truth.

    1. Ridiculously timely and relevant - it's fascinating that this went into production before this year, because I can't think of a better time than 2020 for this story to be resurfaced. I've always heard about "The Chicago 7 (or 8, as they are often referred to as)", but I never really dove deep into their stories. It's so interesting that they all didn't really even know each other, and yet they were on trial for conspiracy charges.

She's beyond awful in this, as one of the greatest scientific legends - Marie Curie.
    2. The film itself is extremely reductive in its telling of her story - the fact that it's considered in the "Romance"…

    Whiplash

    ★★★★½

    1. This movie is terrific. It's definitely the best movie that was nominated for an Oscar that year. I didn't really like the beginning because it felt very predictable and overdone. I don't think I really got into it until the scene where he has dinner with his family. The way they treat him, and vice versa, is just so fascinating. ("Isn't it subjective?" "No." - sums it up nicely, I think).
    2. The movie then dives deep into "striving…
