    Ad Astra

    ★★★★

    "The most realistic depiction of space travel that's been put in a movie."

    Through an incredible performance from Brad Pitt, Ad Astra presents a character struggling with detachment and purpose, making for a reflective narrative that basks in its moments of contemplation. By capturing the coldness and vastness of space, and the reaches that mankind goes in order to understand and wield it, the film combines the fascination surrounding the galaxies above and the peculiarity of human emotion.

    ★★★★★

    In space, no one can hear you scream.

    Ridley Scott's Alien is one of my all-time favorites, sharing the top spot in its category only alongside James Cameron's 1986 follow-up, Aliens.

    I was so thankful for the chance to attend a screening at my local theater for the film's 40th anniversary, knowing that this would be one of the few chances to experience it at this level of detail, immersion, and sound. And god damn did it deliver. Opening credits.…

    Whiplash

    ★★★★½

    Old habits die hard in the face of utter resilience, and in Whiplash, it comes from both sides.

    As Damien Chazelle's breakout film, it's shocking how grounded in his distinct style it already is, where on a visual level, the backdrop of an acid-washed New York contrasts so well with the warm tones of the drum sequences, perfectly capturing that musical passion.

    The camerawork is a masterwork at maintaining the energy that surrounds jazz, with shots tracking along individual instruments…

    Uncut Gems

    ★★★★½

    I MADE IT TO THE LAST POSSIBLE SHOWING

    The most chaotic film you’ll ever see, but seamless with Adam Sandler’s legendary performance representing so much character weight and intensity.

    Seriously had me gripped no matter which way I told myself to feel; a twisting dark surprise from A24 with the presentation of a major giant.

    From one end to the other, Uncut Gems is a high-anxiety ride of tension that shines with pure ambition.

  • Moonlight

    Moonlight

    ★★★★★

    Vibrant, powerful, and unpredictable as life tends to be. The messages behind Moonlight are so beautifully crafted, and take pride in how original their portrayal is.

    There’s an indisputable sense of longing and heartfelt intimacy that couldn’t have been achieved in any other way, and the tri-split narrative provides that very impact. The consistency in Chiron’s character and his respective emotions carry a dual sense of melancholy and beauty, helping me to realize that this is truly something I have…
