    Attack the Block

    ★★★½

    Fun, fast paced, and thought provoking. Attack the Block takes a different angle on the stoner action/comedy with fun charachters and a poignant message. Also, It was cool to see an alien invasion movie where not everyone has a gun.

  • Gates of Heaven

    Gates of Heaven

    ★★★★★

    This is something like I’ve never seen. I can’t even define it. It grows from telling a small story about a pet cemetery to a complex study on humanity. I know it sounds crazy but it truly feels like you’re watching something extremely deep.  


    It begins as a small premise story that goes out of control. There is a monologue that serves as an intermission between the two large stories that re-contextualizes the entire film. I can’t wait to watch…

    Black Orpheus

    ★★★★★

    Black Orpheus is one of the most beautiful movies I’ve ever seen. From the content to the cinematography, to the costumes, to the music, the movie completely envelopes the viewer in the energy of Carnival. It’s one of the best film experiences I’ve ever had.

  • On the Waterfront

    On the Waterfront

    ★★★★½

    I totally understand why Brando gets so much attention for his role in this movie, but I think Eva Marie Saint and Karl Malden are extremely overlooked. That monologue Malden gives in the ship is breathtaking.


     I knew nothing about this movie before I watched it and I was really surprised by content. It reminds me of Ace in the Hole in its presentation of dark themes and complicated charachters in 50’s cinema.
