  • The Face of Another

    The Face of Another


    This film, like few others have done, transcends the medium into pure unadulterated art. Every tiny minuscule detail of the movie is crafted particularly to fit the genius of Teshigahara. Nothing is left to chance and all orchestrated together to create something higher than cinema. This is the nature of how multi-faceted artist, renaissance man, and one of Japan's greatest directors Hiroshi Teshigahara operates in his insane creative process.

    Exaggerations are well left behind, this film is meticulously designed to…

  • Last Year at Marienbad

    Last Year at Marienbad


    Deconstructing cinema much in the way Bresson wanted to do, but in a more grand fashion. It is akin to the Dadaist art movement of anti-art, breaking the rules and destroying the notion of what we perceive as true art. Perhaps not fully to that extent, but Resnais clearly experiments with the medium of cinema in a way majorly unaccepted, and ironically it becomes the focal point of where the film's greatness lies.

    Last Year at Marienbad begins with repetitive…

    Avatar: The Way of Water


    My guess going in was that the film was going to be worse than the original, while most of the critical reception has been that The Way of the Water is a superior successor. The majority of the time while in the middle of my viewing experience, I was swooned over to the latter opinion because of the sheer spectacle of the film. However, as time has passed and memory of the film is already quickly fading, I do think…

    Nobody Loves You and You Don't Deserve to Exist


    Support independent cinema, this film is available to rent on Amazon Prime.

    Nobody Loves You and You Don't Deserve to Exist brings a fresh new voice to the world of cinema, that with a little refinement, could have potential long term. What is apparent from the beginning is there is a tremendous amount of talent from the cast and crew as a whole. However, it is how they take that talent and fuse it together moment by moment, and how…

  • Persona



    Hyperboles do not matter when discussing Persona, for the film is all but stated in fact that it is not only Bergman's masterpiece, but holding the incredible feat of being considered one of if not the best film ever made.

    There are many factors that go into Persona carrying this title, perhaps even too many to explain or be able to fit in this review, but needless to say, it has every element that a perfect film should have. From…

    Meshes of the Afternoon


    Maya Deren's multi-faceted film is one that can never be fully understood. The symbolism, representations of reality and fantasy, and the interpretations that follow all try to touch the base of this film, but try as they might, this film is just untouchable. It's an experience more than a film. An atmosphere of mood and imagery tailor made to affect the viewer's psyche. It manipulates us in unknown ways leaving its mystery at the top of the totem pole and…
