  • If Beale Street Could Talk

    If Beale Street Could Talk

    ★★★★★

    Nobody, and I mean nobody, is able to capture intimacy as well as Barry Jenkins. His greatest tool is his close up. The choices when and where to place the camera inside a conversation and when to do POV shots where the actors look directly into the camera are done so meticulously. These moments are so vunerable, and so gentle, and it's unlike anything I've ever seen. Tish's POV, when she calls Fonny the most beautiful man she's ever seen,…

  • Columbus

    Columbus

    ★★★★★

    It’s been really hard for me to connect to things lately. A lack of passion possibly, I don’t know. But, even though I’ve owned a copy of it for months, I recently broke the seam on Ocean Vuong’s On Earth, We’re Briefly Gorgeous. It’s making me feel a lot. Not sure how to put my feelings in to words, but they are there. 

    Columbus made me feel a lot too. A new comfort film I think. First time I’ve felt a connection to a film in a while. I love that feeling.

  • Promising Young Woman

    Promising Young Woman

    ★★

    Weirdly inconsistent tonally? Something about this feels so disconnected from reality, like it bounces from thriller to romance to comedy but never fully commits to any of those genres. Bo Burnham delivers.... the weirdest, most bizarre performance as a love interest and it was honestly so distracting despite that I’m a fan of his. I really wasn’t sure how to feel at all. 

    The third act hits, and there’s an entire sequence that is riveting and I’m ready to love…

  • Serenity

    Serenity

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

    this is, without exaggeration, one of the funniest movies I’ve ever seen in my life. It’s also a movie about Columbine. I will elaborate on this later.

    It is nearly impossible to talk about this film without just explaining the plot, and this is probably why every review you’ll see online is “here is what the twist ending to Serenity is”

    So, I will now explain to you the plot to Serenity. The film opens with Matthew McConaughey on a…

  • Nathan for You: Finding Frances

    Nathan for You: Finding Frances

    ★★★★★

    The parallel to both Nathan and Bill believing in their fantasy relationships.
    The blur between reality and fiction 
    “What is the purpose?”

    There’s no way this show can ever top this. Nathan realized what people love about this show and focused it all into one big end. The way he plays god and the way he creates real situations out of fantasies is what he really shines at. This finale was the perfect period on the show and I’m ok if this is the end. 

    Honestly genius storytelling.
