    Where Is My Friend's House?

    ★★★★½

    it’s taken me a very, very long time to write my review for this, and it’s because this movie is so powerful i wanted to make sure i knew what to say. you’d think that since it’s been more than two weeks my memory of the film would be foggy, but it’s quite the opposite. this film is so vivid and important that it’s stuck in my head all this time. 

    kiarostami is such a surprisingly gentle soul, and he…

    Mishima: A Life in Four Chapters

    Wet Season

    ★★½

    From a filmmaking standpoint it was pretty good, but it's way to problematic for me to like it.

    The director stated that the film isn’t about the love story between a student and a teacher, which I think in retrospect is true, despite the marketing. Nothing romantic is developed between them until the start of the third act, it's more of a empowerment story. Mrs. Lin has to overcome an obscene amount of emotional obstacles, and by the end of…

  • The Young Blood Chronicles

    The Young Blood Chronicles

    ★★★

    my personal favourite part of this is when professional rapper Big Sean snaps a toddlers neck not even twenty minutes in
