    One Summer on Earth

    Finally, after a year of hard work, not much blood, a little bit of sweat and many tears, One Summer on Earth has been (and is being) shared.

    It has been such a strange process, starting with a mental breakdown and ending with one of the best days of my life - sitting in the cinema surrounded by my parents, my partner, aunts, uncles, grandparents, friends, parents of friends, colleagues, ex-colleagues, ex-teachers and so many others who had all gathered…

    Finally, here I am, at the big 1000. So many people on this platform choose important films, special films and films that have power, both artistically and emotionally. I too wanted my 1000th to be special, but I wanted to choose something that would be special to me, so here I am, just having finished David Lynch Cooks Quinoa.

    It may not be an obvious pick unless you know me well, but I knew this had to be it; this…

    Syndromes and a Century

    ★★★★½

    It's incredible to me how Apichatpong can create such stirring and profound stories with such sparse and abstract stories.

    Once again, he succeeds with Syndromes and a Century, presenting his audience with life, or lives, in their most honest forms, delivering sprinklings of spirituality that soaks into every pore of the story. His cinematic language is simply infectious and wildly spellbinding and provokes a unique reflection that sticks to the mind like treacle.

    The film is a spiritual therapy that laps gently at the ankles like luke-warm sea water, soothing and fascinating again and again and again...

    ★★★★★

    In a world that has built up so many artistic conventions and expectations, it can be almost profound for a piece of art to quietly slip into the discourse and defy anything that came before it. That is how Burning enters the mind, greeting the viewer with a light but confident handshake and a glint in its eye that says more than any running time ever could. It's a subtle film but its invisible flames burn brighter than any conceivable…

    A sweet little film for a sweet afternoon.

    I always tell myself 'oh, yeah, I think I have some kind of an idea about what's going on' and then remember a scene I had forgotten that just ruins my theory. That's why I love it with all my heart. Does a film need to actually say something? Does it need to do anything? Why does it have to make sense? A reminder of this every so often is fantastic, especially if that reminder gives me the same morbid enchantment David Lynch manages to put into every one of his films, long or short.

    What? WHAAT?

    Story time:
    The first time I watched this was at the beginning of summer in 2019. Very late to the party, I know. I hated it. I hated it with a passion. I had just finished the book, which I loved, and anyone who has read it will know that the two works are significantly different. I think, first time around, I hated it because I felt it thoughtlessly massacred the book.
