    Where Is My Friend's House?

    ★★★★½

    **I wrote this review for uni and it's been a while since I've written a proper review like this and I'm very happy with how it turned out so please enjoy and let me know if you want to see me write more stuff like this**

    As we traverse arduous times, we yearn to escape back to our childhoods. When the obstacles we faced seem trivial upon reflection. Often we look back on these times as if they were a…

    A grand deconstruction of colonialist film language and the traditional neo-realism that had driven most Senegalese films before it all while still managing to focus on its two main characters.

    Following a young couple, we see them grapple with no future in Senegal as they seek to move to France. Rejecting one's cultural background in order for a different life isn't the only main conflict despite being the focus of the narrative.

    The sound and camera work rejects traditional storytelling…

    I got through about three minutes of it. I put in a good solid three. I’m sorry to anybody who loves this movie. I couldn’t give that kind of time. It was three minutes and I was just "oof". Is it just about spies? Is Dominika Egorova kind of like a narcissistic sociopath and she's a spy so every guy falls in love her because she makes him feel bad about himself and that’s the love story? I haven’t seen…

    All About Lily Chou-Chou

    ★★

    All About Lily Chou-Chou so desperately wants to be a staple of counter-culture it feels like it's looped back around into something rigid that it was trying to counter. The main culprit is the unmotivated camera work. This glorifies the movie's abhorrent moral viewpoints on themes such as depression and rape. The loose plot attempts to tie together the aura of the film but the moods of this 'mood piece' don't feel deep or as intellectual as it wants to…
