    2001: A Space Odyssey

    I worship Stanley Kubrick, and I consider him to not only be the greatest filmmaker to ever live, but also one of the most brilliant artists and minds to ever walk the earth. Kubrick’s work is my greatest obsession, and the man himself is my greatest hero. What an unbelievable honor and privilege it was to see the most important and influential film ever made the way Kubrick intended for it to be seen. Seeing 2001 in 70mm in its…

    4 Months, 3 Weeks and 2 Days

    β€ͺEvery now and then you watch something that reminds why film is the greatest art form...it makes you think, it challenges your beliefs, and it moves you in unspoken ways. That’s what film is all about, and 4 Months, 3 Weeks and 2 Days embodies all of it perfectly.‬ It’s amazing how a movie so small and minimalistic can be such a stunning and riveting experience. Films like this just go to show you that a raw and uncompromising look at the human condition, no matter how melancholy or brutal, is the most powerful story one can tell.

    β€ͺSlender Man didn’t deserve this disrespect, man....why couldn’t they just let him rest peacefully in the pop culture graveyard. For real, though, this is fucking abysmal. Ignoring the dialogue and acting, this is just terrible filmmaking...the editing is disorienting and messy, there are countless continuity errors, shots are randomly out of focus, and you can’t even see half of the β€œscares” because they didn’t fucking light the scenes properly...seriously, you can’t see shit, you’ve just gotta assume some bad shit…

    Somber look at PTSD and its effect on both life and family that still finds a way to be heartwarming. Thomasin McKenzie gives a phenomenonal breakout performance. Also has one of the best endings of the year. Definitely check this out if you get the chance.

    Kubrick on the big screen - a religious experience.

    I really don’t know what to say about this. A lot to digest. All I know is that it’s brilliantly made and Hawke is fantastic. Apart from that, I really don’t know how to go about talking about this yet. I don’t remember the last time I was so enthralled by a film. First Reformed has left me in a state of both intellectual and moral despair; I’m complexed by what I believe I think about this film, and fascinated…
