    ★★★★★

    what an amazing double feature. vinterberg and mikkelsen are clearly a duo to be reckoned with. more than a decade later, they teamed up to create another dynamic masterpiece, a little more lighthearted but still very authentic and grounded in realism. this is a film that shouldn’t work but absolutely does. it’s a bit of a slow burn but it’s fascinating, exploring the allure and dangers of alcohol, with nuance and sophistication, without glorifying it or outright condemning it, striking…

    ★★★★★

    this is literally my favorite movie and one of the best horror films ive ever seen, it’s a masterpiece, nearly flawless in every way, in terms of both narrative and style, it creates such a dreadful and terrifying atmosphere while remaining grounded in what is a deeply emotional and personal story of grief, loss, and family trauma, even the title hints at the film’s emotional core, its exploration of family ties, motherhood, adolescence, and everything in between, for me, the…

    ★★½

    okay after a very tough finals week in college i wanted some catharsis, something i could connect with about the fears of leaving college and the uncertainly and lack of control, and the identity crisis of not being a student anymore and feeling like you have no purpose, and i mean i guess this gave me that but in the driest, most boring way possible. this was a slog to get through with mostly boring dialogue and boring characters that i could not care less about. idk, baumbach is very hit or miss and this was very disappointing.

    ★★★½

    as an italianx ally, i find their culture so beautiful. what an interesting movie. the performances were great but a bit much imo, nic cage definitely seemed like he was overacting but i think it gave the film a certain authenticity idk. 

    my favorite characters were cher’s grey hairs, nic cage in the white tank top, and the grandpa with the five dogs <3 and of course the moon, she is so beautiful. but yeah, pretty fun film, i loved…

    ★★★★★

    honestly this one of the most beautiful but quietly devastating films i have ever seen. brokeback mountain has the unique ability to reduce me to tears by merely hearing a line perfectly uttered by jake gyllenhaal or seeing a still of ennis closely hugging a jacket. even though this is my second watch, i still sobbed so hard my chest hurt. 

    where to even begin? every aspect of this film is beyond perfection, from its gorgeous cinematography, phenomenal acting, breathtaking…

    cw: cringe

    my mother and i don't see eye to eye. much like marion and christine our relationship is fraught with tension and conflict. while we dont engage in screaming matches, i am no stranger to passive aggressive comments, backhanded compliments, and hurtful remarks made in passing. like any immigrant mother, she has sacrificed so much to provide for me and give me the opportunities she lacked. she has a strong personality but i know she loves me and she…
