You probably know me from Instagram… hello.
Top 4 = movies I’ve recently loved/ been on my mind
I make a lot of typos. Sorry.
Hit like a truck. Left feeling broken. But to Wim, and to the whole crew, this story couldn’t have been in better hands. I can’t quite find the words or energy to write a review at this time. But, in a couple of words, it’s just.. beautifully haunting. We’re imperfect humans, and make mistakes — we wish we could be better sometimes but fail to make the change to become better. You can’t change the past, but you can change the future. A lovely reminder ‘’Paris, Texas’’ presents us.
Ian Donnelly: If you immerse yourself into a foreign language, then you can actually rewire your brain.
Louise Banks: Yeah, the Sapir-Whorf hypothesis. It's the theory that the language you speak determines how you think and...
Ian Donnelly: It affects how you see everything.
Have you ever thought about that? How limited we, you and I, truly see the world. Do definitions and words give us an understanding of something? No. Not compared to something like the aliens in Arrival.…
This was a lot of fun! YES flawed and crowd pleasing, but you shouldn’t expect anything that penetrates your soul — just a fun time. With a lot of blood. The stunt work was great as expected with the director being Brad Pitt’s old “Fight Club” stunt double. And Pitt had the freedom to play himself I feel — comedic roles from serious actors are my favourite thing. If you like dumb action-packed character ensembles you shouldn’t have a problem with this; if you do have a problem with it, grow up 🤌
It’s incredibly inspiring to see such a young director/writer have this much passion and creativity to bring together Susan Sarandon & John Tuturro (two of my favourite actors) in this interestingly crafted story world with mysterious characters, filmed in beautiful black and white. Not only are Susan and John’s cameos great, but the amazing lead from Justin Marcel brings a certain charisma to the film too. I really love some of the dialogue and how you let certain scenes play out. Well done Will!!
Hey, look, I know I stated my criticisms with the newest Spider-Man films but this one really redeems Holland’s trilogy. Peter Parker, as a character in this is far better and goes on the journey of what it means to be a superhero - he’s not just a guy in a fancy costume, he’s not just Spider-Man, he’s Peter Parker trying to do the right thing. Holland has grown on me as Spider-Man, and his acting has gotten…
A wonderful exploration of the relationship between people and the world they are in. Alan Kane & Gary Valentine had an unusually alluring spark, I’m not sure if it was romantic love but it was friendship.
There’s the ups and downs in the short time we see their live, as well as the strange people who drift in and out of it and in that way, for me at least, it felt realistic because you don’t know everyone’s life story nor…
