  • Hustlers

    Hustlers

    ★★★★½

    “we were fucking hurricanes, weren’t we”

    not a joke in the slightest: this is one of the best films of the year. a movie with a premise like this could have been made in a million horrible ways, but this is a perfect example of how good something can be when treated just right. it’s engaging from the first scene until the cut to black. everyone is a star player, j-lo is ridiculously great and even cardi b and miss…

  • Jennifer's Body

    Jennifer's Body

    ★★★★½

    “i just got aquamarine on dvd. it's about this girl who’s like, half-sushi. i guess she has sex through her blowhole or something”

    literally the film of a century not only was this ahead of its time but we should be teaching this in film classes like what was brought to the table here was just extraordinary and otherworldly and what was done here should be recognized worldwide as a feat in cinema and i think we should be thanking…

  • The Farewell

    The Farewell

    ★★★★½

    “be good, my child”

    so genuine and caring that it feels like being hugged. i’m just gonna keep rewatching this until i have it memorized, i think

  • The Farewell

    The Farewell

    ★★★★½

    “stupid child!”

    warm and familiar and completely worth driving out of state just to rewatch. the oscar campaign starts now, even if we all have to sit on the sidewalk with cows like david lynch

  • Teen Spirit

    Teen Spirit

    ★★★★½

    “a lot of people like to sing. you can sing”

    was fully anticipating feeling mildly apathetic about this, but then they opened the movie with genesis by grimes and i was a fool by tegan and sara. back to back. this COMPLETELY won me over, from the saturated colors to the killer soundtrack. the right balance of hazy neon and introspective moments of quiet. i could feel the flaws under the surface, a little clumsy here and there, and cliche…

  • The Farewell

    The Farewell

    ★★★★½

    “isn’t it wrong to lie?”

    family is so simplistically complex: grief, joy and despair are often all mixed together. this was so rhythmically calming, and i can’t remember the last time i’ve heard an audience burst into laughter and then stop on a dime to reflect. this is skillfully made and every performance deserves recognition, but as i wrap up my review i’m gonna leave you with three words: awkwafina academy award

  • The Last Black Man in San Francisco

    The Last Black Man in San Francisco

    ★★★★½

    “you don’t get to hate it unless you love it”

    stylistically new but also so familiar, like a long forgotten classic lost in the pages of history. every shot is a breath of fresh air, it almost feels like the first real film i’ve seen all year. i’m stunned

  • The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants

    The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants

    ★★★★½

    just know that every morning i open my eyes and ask myself, WWTFTSOTTPD: what would tibby from the sisterhood of the traveling pants do

  • Her Smell

    Her Smell

    ★★★★½

    “you can’t be fully aquiainted with becky something until you want her to fuck off. remember that”

    had to breathe through 3 minor panic attacks during this viewing, even though i’ve seen it multiple times already. catastrophic. the chaos this thing emits is constantly ringing in my ears

  • Booksmart
