“Hay que saber tirar lo que ya no sirve.”
La luz es cada vez más brillante, hasta volverse cegadora. La soledad me abruma y me come y me aplasta hasta convertirme en el animal más débil de la Tierra. Llegué solo. Me voy solo. Y entonces tomo refugio dentro de mí. Pero no me alcanza. Y al final, nada más queda la nada.

“It’s trash, low-bro horror.”
Better at paying homage to classics, than it is at developing actual terror that’s not dependent on jump scares. The 90s setting sucks and the movie has like four endings. But I’m not that hard to please, and I got to see someone’s head being shoved into a bread slicer. So yeah it’s fun, just not pulpy enough for my taste.
“It grows anywhere, like weeds.”
Minari is filmed like a memory. It’s on the riverbed of a carefully manufactured mise-en-scène that all the film’s sincere sentiment finds the force for its stream.
Funny, heart-rending and quite often, both at the same time. Chung’s film overflows with authenticity, from its honest performances and beautiful score to its story of losing your place in your family while looking for one in a new country.
The most American film of 2020.
