  • Mood Indigo

    Mood Indigo

    ★★★★

    Boris Vian's "L'ecume des Jours" (Foam of the Daze/Froth of the Days) is one of my favourite books. The name Mood Indigo is the English version of the book/film which comes from the Duke Ellington song. The lead character, Colin, is very fond of the jazz master. His music plays an important role in bringing together Colin and Chloe (who is also named after a Duke Ellington song).

    Vian's book is incredible for the surrealistic world that he constructs, the…

    Columbus

    ★★★★★

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

    It should be applauded that Marvel is actually trying new things. After the dozens of MCU films leading up to Endgame, the formula was…

    Soul

    ★★★★★

    Soul is the best film of 2020. It's the greatest Pixar film and the movie we all needed in these times. It's an incredible reflection and celebration of life.

    It is an absolutely beautiful and stunning visual feast. It's cinematography rivals both anime director Makoto Shinkai, and even live action director Terrence Malick.

    It has the most wonderful score and soundtrack, composed by Jon Batiste (from the Colbert Late Show), Trent Reznor, Atticus Finch, and contributions from Questlove (who I…
