    Carnival of Souls

    ★★★★½

    Honestly one of the most relatable depictions of mental illness I've seen in a movie. There's so much in here that really expresses how I experience depression and anxiety.

    The sense of detachment, then those bursts where you just don't want to, can't, be alone. (When she goes to that diner with her neighbour). How you are followed by fear (here taking the form of the undead man). Those periods where you feel you're not part of the world and/or…

    Call Me by Your Name

    ★★★★★

    Flying to Melbourne to see this at MIFF on my birthday was the best idea I’ve had at least all year.

Except, perhaps, Armie Hammer dancing to Psychedelic Furs – I never knew that was something I needed to see, but, oh, how I needed to!

    Any movie that takes the time to have an entire choreographed disco dance scene is more than worth the watch in my books!

    ★★★★

    I can't believe the Shaun the Sheep movie made me cry! But the opening credits scene alone had me tearing up.

    Also, I'm endlessly amazed that it never feels like I'm watching something with no actual dialogue. The characters have so much character and I love them all.* They're wonderful. This is such a charming, heartwarming movie. Ahhhhhh. I love everything Aardman. This was just what I needed.


    *The pigs crack me up so much. I had to buy a plushie of one when my friend and I went to The Magic of Aardman exhibition at ACMI the year before last.

    Had to listen to One Mint Julep by The Clovers as soon as I got home. Made me very happy to hear it featured!

    I love when movies leave you feeling a little dazed - a little like you've stepped into another world when you leave the cinema - and this definitely did that for me. Made me look at everything differently, even just for a few hours.

    It is achingly beautiful (visually & otherwise); exquisitely shot (on 16mm) it is…
