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

    I was going to rate this 3/5 until I got to the very last shot, then I started crying

    Nostos: The Return

    ★★★★

    A very special film of mythic beauty and dreamlike landscapes. It's a shame more people haven't seen this.

    I'm halfway through, and watching this movie has honestly been more intense than shrooms.

    The Royal Tenenbaums

    ★★★★★

    Somehow managing to avoid the melodrama that certain tender films are caked in, The Royal Tenenbaums has one of the most genuine portrayals of depression I've ever seen on screen. And yet this film is still brimming with liveliness and soul. A lot of the things these characters go through, strangely, have a touch of authenticity to them.

    What I like about Wes Andersons early movies so much, is that they're all deeply personal at their core. In many ways, I miss this aspect of his movies, of which there is increasingly less to be found.
