    THE MOVIES ARE BACK!

    Watching this with a group of friends, in the exact orchestra centre of the Debussy theatre, right before the World Premiere, was honestly one of the most euphoric theatre experiences in quite sometime. Slightly disappointing for Wes Anderson standards (I would argue that this is his second worst film), but still contains a genuine core amidst its moments of Parisian incoherent chaos. The Chalamet/McDormand segment is basically Wes Anderson's La Chinoise (1967)!

    What a time to be alive.

    As I type this log, the cinema of my dreams, my second home, my movie-viewing paradise, is now dead

    It was a good run. Seven long years, commencing from the wee age of Eleven. Starting with the Ottawa International Animation Festival, I grew up with the greats throughout Bytowne history. Wenders, Zeman, Dormael, Sorrentino, Haynes, Lanthimos, Guerra, Haigh, Audiard, Rozema, Stillman, Guadagnino, Sokurov, Solondz, Campos, Denis. The list is endless.

    But now, due to covid, financial constraints, and the wish…

    How do you do, fellow kids? We’ve all seen that clip from 30 Rock, where a try-hard Steve Buscemi — adorned with a hoodie, backwards ball cap, and skateboard — which feels like an attempt at impressing the Gen Z crowd, even as it predates them. It’s a humorous clip from a rather mediocre sitcom that has since spread like wildfire across the internet; and also a perfect encapsulation of Futura; a collective work directed by three of the most…

    Mia Hansen-Løve is basically roasting cinephiles in this movie, at what is arguably the most prestigious film festival in the world. Now THAT'S something I'm all for. ENCORE!

    Cute vibe piece overall. The debussy screen felt like an IMAX. A bit on the longer side and the pacing can be hit or miss, but as a contemplative work that demonstrates the trials and tribulations of the creative process, I found it to be a refreshing change of pace for a…

    The greatest threat to modern cinema isn’t streaming services, comic book flicks, or even trend-setting cinematic universes…

    It’s the rise of the Oscar-bait biopic.

    Taking the life of an influential figure, and minimizing their entire career into a cramped two hour-sub run time seems ludicrous. The existence of this genre to begin with, is simply meant to pander towards nostalgia driven elders, who crave for cinematic fantasies to re-live their idols of yesteryear. In 2019 alone, we have films based…
