  • Vive L'Amour

    Vive L'Amour

    ★★★★★

    A drunken haze of soulless segues from one day to the next in this concrete labyrinth of massive buildings and perennially busy roads breeds a lifestyle of alienation masquerading as one of routine. Once aimlessness befriends structure, people cannot escape the devastating cycle of wasting their days away.

    Fueled by the need to be anything but empty, yet ending up being just that. The puzzle that is your life seems to have run out of pieces that fit, and at…

    In the Mood for Love

    ★★★★★

    "It is a restless moment. She has kept her head lowered... to give him a chance to come closer. But he could not, for lack of courage. She turns and walks away."

    Your lives intertwined by becoming victims of adultery and the consequential grip of sorrow. You're hopelessly alone, together. Lonely walks on alleyways night in and night out takes over your very being; the camera spying on you down the passageways, on corridors, and in rooms similar to how…

    Nobody Knows

    ★★★★★

    Of abandonment. The painfully gradual realisation of having been left behind. Their cramped apartment houses more people than the landlord is aware of. They don't go to school; they have no friends. The agonizing passage of time turns their once-lively home into a messy and foul-smelling one.

    Clothes bear holes and shoes turn dirty for the eldest boy; the only registered child of the household. Forced to mature beyond his years without a moment's notice. Forced to bear an adult's…

    Co-directed by Letterboxd's own, Corben Lewis! For a student film, I was surprised to see how visually pleasing it looked, especially at the beginning. Monochrome just felt like the right choice. Watch it right here and give your honest feedback if you can! Keep in mind that it's an early cut.

    People spend their whole lives forming bonds with each other. Some of those bonds are permanent, others fleeting. Some bonds simply do not last at all, some only get stronger over time, some unfortunately have the sour luck of hanging by a thread while slowly crumbling like walls subjected to acid rain. Rarely does a relationship remain unchanged throughout its course.

    This dynamic nature of relationships is fueled entirely by people going through trials and tribulations with each other and…

    All About Lily Chou-Chou

    ★★★★★

    Humiliation. Rape. Murder. Bullying. How can a film that does not shy away from the most horrific of subjects look so beautiful? Unchecked teen angst fueled by the ignorance of adults is not an uncommon theme, but it's rarely been portrayed with as much beauty and emotion as it has been here. Anonymous message boards serving as a place for people to find solace in. People who would have spiraled deeper into depression if it weren't for a celebrity or…
