    The Banshees of Inisherin

    ★★★★½

    Hello friends, after taking an unintentional long break I wanted to see something humane which has been stored long in my watchlist.
    In the backdrop of Irish Civil War, the representation of brotherly fallout in a grassroot level portrayed in a isolated visceral island comprised with uninteresting working class people, that perfectly describes the terrible consequences of brotherly war in a minimalistic way with occassional dark humour, which I haven't seen since The Wind that Shakes the Barley, but without…

    ★★★½

    Heartwarming Christmas spirited little comedy drama about finding your own family in contrast to the distant or lost blood families. Seemingly the old grumpy authoritarian teacher & the silver spooned bright annoying young troublemaker student found out that they have more in common than they initially thought in a isolated forcedly taken holiday period. They're both basically insecure troubled kid who got the short end of the stick in family matters & uses bitterness as a defence mechanism. Along with the cook…
