  • Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind

    Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind

    ★★★★½

    A relationship story a la Charlie Kaufman, that uses the whimsical visuals of director Michel Gondry to create a film that gorgeously mixes a thought-provoking concept, while being completely relatable to anyone who sees it.

    There is some brainwork to be done during and in the aftermath of viewing, but Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind succeeds in steering us to another focus when it comes to any relationship that might end, no matter if it was good or bad.…

  • The Father

    The Father

    ★★★★½

    This film is heartbreakingly brilliant.

    The Father is a devastating look at an octogenarian man's struggles with dementia. His mind just flickers on and off. Quite a brain teaser of a picture.

    Florian Zeller uses a visual puzzle to puts us, as viewers, in the fading mind of Anthony (Anthony Hopkins). As artful a portrayal of the illness as I've seen. A gem of a film.

    Anthony Hopkins and Olivia Colman are amazing together.

  • Empire Records

    Empire Records

    ★★★★½

    Blissful, golden youth.

    Empire Records is one of those movies where conventional film thoughts go out the window and you just enjoy the vibe of what you're watching. Simply, a lovely cult hit.

    Air-tight plot; simple, yet engaging. This movie is a nostalgic time capsule of 90s teenage affinity for music. Rebellious in-your-face attitude and all.

    One thing we can all agree on, this is top-tier in the music cues category. There is nothing like the energy of that music…

  • First Man

    First Man

    ★★★★

    The more you watch this film, the more you realize the overall theme and the intended story told.

    First Man can fool you. It moves away from the flashy, visual space-themed movies and focuses on its lead character. Yes, this walks you through the Apollo 11 mission. But this isn't a movie about that.

    This Damien Chazelle-directed film focuses more on the man in Neil Armstrong (Ryan Gosling), rather than his great achievements. Instead of opting for a grandstanding biopic,…

  • Sound of Metal

    Sound of Metal

    ★★★★

    This film is a journey of the senses. It pulls us straight into the perspective of its protagonist. With superb sound design, we go into the head of a man going deaf and provokes thoughts of appreciating what we very much take for granted.

    Sound of Metal is an immersive journey from a life-changing setback to its aftermath and adjustment. It's a lesson of how initial desperation can set in and that, once set, you go on.

    Riz Ahmed perfectly…

  • Zack Snyder's Justice League

    Zack Snyder's Justice League

    ★★★★

    As someone who did dig the theatrical version of this film, I must say that this director's cut of Justice League is the version that should have been released.

    It's really an improvement in every single aspect: story, writing, character arcs, score, cinematography, villains, etc. It was the ultimate course correction to a set vision that was hijacked and steered into a direction that backfired.

    This film feels like the first cut of a film before it's whittled down to…
