  • Aftersun



    Quiet dramas circling relationships between parent and child have always managed to hold a special place in my heartβ€”films such asΒ The Florida Project (2017) and Petite Maman (2021). I find myself seldom resonating with films nowadays, which is why it was a delightful (and heartbreaking) surprise to chance upon one of the best ones of 2022.

    Aftersun will gently lead you through a current of parental anxiety masked as a coming-of-age. The sound design, acting, and cinematography is nothing short…

    Hamaguchi does capitalism!

    Besides that, not as captivating as his other films are. The pacing of this just doesn't feel as justifiable, but I love how we're seeing a new(ish) rising auteur in our generation.Β

    Can't wait for the next Hamaguchi film in cinemas!

    Brilliant humor for a quirky romcom, and such a lovely cast too. Will have you smiling throughout, and giggling in some parts. The joke about Holappa's friend got a bit redundant towards the end, but otherwise - such a lovely, lovely time!

But I have respect for women. That's why I can always take a NO” followed by the words β€œNoToRape," "AttractTheRightMen," and "Surround yourself with good guys.”

  • Nomadland



    β€œI'm not homeless, I'm just houseless."

    Nomadland is an intimate portrait of the times, and I promise you that there is greatness in Chloe Zhao’s filmmaking. Her technical prowess is able to capture a gorgeous dreamlike landscape in the unconventional life of Fern. The way that the film is stunningly beautiful but still captures the grim and dirt underneath its fingernails is a staple in Zhao’s expertise. There is irony in the fact that you can find peace in a…
