    Little Women

    ★★★★

    i am not exaggerating when i say this is genuinely the softest, warmest, most tender movie i have seen all year. i wish it didn’t have to end. i mean, what in the world was Greta thinking? 

    it is so obvious that Little Women is crafted with so much love and emotion, that you can’t help but feel loved yourself. which, i guess, is what Gerwig does best — just as with Lady Bird, she pumps the film’s entire runtime…

    Dennis Villeneuve did a wonderful job in crafting this mind-twisting, cerebral thriller about the subconscious. or is it about commitment? maybe it’s about split personality disorder... or could…
