    DIRECTORS SUITE: DAVID LYNCH | Surrealist Bliss and Idiosyncrasy

    "This is no longer your film..."

    These six words—practically everything revolves around these six words. David Lynch's visceral nightmare—a between two worlds creation—works on the idea of expectation and deliverance, dipping its dreamlike chants into a pool of confusion and the harsh, tragic suggestion of ultimate reality. Mulholland Drive explores the deepest, darkest, and most destructive sort of expectations—for its protagonist, and for the audience, the film almost gently strums an…

    The Year is 2017: Ranked and Reviewed

    As a 21 year old who hasn’t sat in a classroom in nearly four years—looking forward with no clear direction or intention at the time—I look at the future as a worrisome road. Jobs, talent, money; it’s terrifying. So, naturally, with each and every coming-of-age film that arrives, I nonetheless share an interest in watching and seeing if it can do anything to comfort me. Because in my view, a good coming-of-age film…

    ★★★★

    It's bigger, badder and better — think of all that cliche praise you've heard before when it comes to sequels and watch it churn into a bag of unadulterated R-rated fun, because, to my surprise, Deadpool 2 is probably one of the best superhero sequels around. Thanks to its interlaced emotional comedy and action, characters are both at their funniest and most humane. Emotions run high and Deadpool has a lot of shit to say about it. The second act…

    ★★★★

    Quite possibly both the most cutest and most grimiest foray into this kind of animation—each stop-motion movement is perfect and literally the best thing to watch in awe at. Wes Anderson does it again with creating a unique world inside his movies, and this one knocks it out of the park with the sublime touches of animation; it's strangely his best looking picture yet. At first, the story is slow but soon enough it picks up, moving into a great…

    The Void

    ★★

    A vessel of John Carpenter gloss and shock. The Fog meets Assault on Precinct 13 meets The Thing, fizzling in a flimsy array of Carpenter claustrophobia. Cults, cloaks, and crosses (not to mention triangles); an illuminati-astronomical parasite honing to a drained abyss. Emergency-red brightness cascading on victims and heroes, drowning in an dissolute echo of dread. An urge to fight, run, and creep. A shitstorm of a night for the characters and the audience. A hell-bent creation of freaks and…

    The Year is 2017: Ranked and Reviewed

    The wettest kind of consciousness, percolating memories that flood with no specific significance, nor cascade with the true essence of meaning—they sit, stir, and rattle the brain with all of its attempts at explanation. Beckoning an existential gaze that beautifies the believers and the heroes—surrounded in a stream of fake electronic components and fake matter. To these wanderers, life is fenced in and forgotten, intact with their provisions and protocol—this is the future,…
