    The Graduate

    ★★★★★

    it’s crazy to think that when i first watched the film, i was maybe 17 or 18 and about to graduate high school. now i’m the same age as benjamin! watching it in high school, i didn’t really relate to ben because i knew where i was going to college and i was pretty excited. flash forward a few years later, i’m one year away from graduating and it’s already weighing heavily on me. i feel like i have an…

    ★★★★★

    oh La dolce vita, how lovely you are even if you are 3 hours long. divided into different "episodes," the film follows marcello mastroianni as a journalist wondering around rome with an aim at trying to grasp at love, but at the same time he moves around with no set goal. marcello, though he looks like he was sculpted by greek gods, is an insufferable character. and he becomes worse as each episode commences, but there is still something that…

    ★★★★

    i feel like my heart was ripped out of my chest. a love affair blooms in the midst of world war II and of course it comes in between them, leaving me in distress. i smiled as i watched sophia loren and marcello mastroianni argue over using butter or oil for their frittata, cried at their goodbye, and held on to hope alongside sophia’s search. gasped at that reveal and suffered in heartache for the rest of the film. the melancholic score by henry mancini only amplifies the heaviness the film carries. combined with long looks and watery eyes, don’t let the name sunflower fool you.

    The Lovers

    ★★★½

    love can either slowly grow, slowly extinguish, or explode as it lingers in the air. jeanne moreau had been a bored and almost lifeless version of herself before stepping into the garden to find a love that wholly matched what was missing in her life. it’s pure, romantic, tender, dreamy, poetic. there’s no certainty it will continue pass the night, but it’s worth the risk to try and hold on to the pieces kept close to the heart. 

    it’s crazy…

    i will always remember jean-paul belmondo as the most effortlessly cool and chic face of the french new wave. he lit up every moment he was on-screen, an ability not many have. he was one of the greatest to grace the silver screen. it’s going to be strange watching his films and knowing he’s no longer with us because he seemed like such a strong force, one that would’ve stayed with us forever. and he will be, in the form of his iconic films that we will talked about for ages to come. rest in peace bébel, i love you and thank you for everything 🤍
