    ★★★★★

    My entire master’s thesis can be summed up by “A Professional Pirate” and that is NOT an exaggeration.

  • Zombi Child

    Zombi Child

    ★★★½

    Stumbles in the last few minutes, which is forgivable because the rest is so lush and haunting and loaded with history and meaning. An obvious double feature with I Walked With A Zombie, in part because they both ultimately have the same message: Black culture is something white people should not meddle with, and can never understand.

  • Orlando

    Orlando

    ★★★★½

    I really wanted to read Orlando before watching Orlando, but Criterion Channel forced my hand again! This is expiring at the end of the month, and I couldn’t let the opportunity to watch it pass me by. 

    That said: what a delight! The “real man/real woman” conversation brought me to tears (mostly because of Tilda, obviously, but damn, Billy Zane, WHO GAVE YOU THE RIGHT).

    And the fourth-wall breaking just made me think: Orlando walked so Fleabag could run ❤️
