    We're All Going to the World's Fair

    ★★★★½

    We're All Going to the World's Fair is quite an immersive experience. It combines found footage and pure screen elements (a la Searching, 2018) to take us on a gloomy trip (potentially, to the World's Fair).

    The creative story makes for an utterly interesting horror film. It's different. It focuses not on cheap scares, but on creating an ambiance of dread and eerie tension.

    What I love the most is how, without being at all obvious, this film is really…

  • On the Count of Three

    On the Count of Three

    ★★★★½

    This film should come with a TRIGGER WARNING FOR ALL THE CONTENT RELATED TO SUICIDE AND SUICIDAL THOUGHTS.

    This is a banger of a directorial debut from Jerod Carmichael. On the Count of Three is a poignant, heartbreaking, yet beautiful picture centered around two characters that are just absolutely reeling; but only are at their best when with each other.

    This film manages to foreshadow what to expect and leave us feeling a sense of dread throughout. It builds up…

    Three Kings

    ★★★★

    I like how Three Kings is a war movie, but technically NOT. Said technicality is mentioned several times. It felt like a very human story (in both good and bad ways) that went somewhat beyond the jugheaded culture of U.S. military.

    I was engaged by the artistry of this film. The splendid camerawork was beautifully complemented by great editing. This movie moved FAST and it was all the better for it.

    The writing was slick and the performances were solid.…

    The Fever night club scene with Paul Oakenfold playing in the background is brilliant.

    Collateral, as the kids say, SLAPS. Hard. Fun and a pleasure to watch. The LA night is as much a character as any of the actors.

    The Batman

    ★★★★½

    The Batman, the latest iteration of the Caped Crusader comes at a moment when the industry could use it; a superhero film that cuts away from the cookie-cutter, adds some substance to the style, and centers around a message and the procedurals that come with it.

    Director and co-writer Matt Reeves crafted this detective-style crime thriller that differs from the cartoony and gives a realistic take; that's where Reeves seems to take a page from the Chris Nolan playbook for…

  • 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…
