    Halloween 2018

    A horror film about luck and zodiac signs. Watching it now, I didn't really find it scary but at the time it was released, I remember people were raving about how terrifying this was. I felt some of the scary elements, not gonna lie. It relied on the atmosphere and the sound effects of dread only to come up short of what was going to be revealed in some scenes. Kris Aquino took me way back to life in 2004 in the Philippines. I must say, when this came out me and my brothers were terrified when we would spot trailers on TV.

    ★★★½

    Unsettling and cringe-inducing but also quite affecting. You feel for the main character, Lisa but you're also enraged and frustrated as to why she did those things. A decent, dark drama that is carried by Maggie Gyllenhaal's performance. We can always rely on her.

    "Trust is a motherfucker"

    I'll go as far as to saying that this might end up in my top 10 this year. Very good. Also RELEVANT. It wasn't just about the lives that these artists lived, but something that has happened before is resurfacing to remind us about the most disgusting social issues in America.

    Trust me when I say this is one of the best films this year. It's heartbreaking, often hilarious and profound. Gorgeous cinematography too! I wish Tamara Jenkins made more films. Hahn and Giamatti have never been better.

    Mainly about being consumed on one problem and trying to find a solution that at times you lose sight of other aspects in your life. I relate deeply. Highly recommended.
