    ★★★★★

    This is such a warm and comforting visual experience especially in the beginning, it intimately helps tell this story that is also very personal as it examines the dynamics of family. In many ways it feels similar to being a child because it details so many things that most children do. This is also partially because the film is trying to portray itself from the lens of a child at least part of the time. It also bounces around though…

    My 1000th logged film and a very fitting one as well because I loved it. 

    “Shame-the feeling that will save mankind”

    Tarkovsky’s Sci-fi answer to Kubrick’s 2001, which he called cold and sterile. The two films while having some similarities-are definitely different in many ways as well, both revolve around space exploration to an extent and feature stunning visuals as well as ambiguous parts. The compositions and shots that are found in Solaris are some of the most brilliant I’ve…

    ★★★★

    Such a unique vision that feels fully realized right from the start. It has an excellent opening that really pulled me in and then I continued to be glued to it the whole runtime. I love the style the film uses and the way it’s all shot especially the handheld stuff because it has an odd sense of Intimacy. The story is compelling but very different, it’s all held together quite well by most aspects of the film. It’s beautifully…

    ★★½

    Funny and entertaining at times but a but bring and slow at others. The story progression is low and the dialogue is kind of clunky in a lot of moments. Even a lot of Hanks delivery is pretty odd. It’s also quite predictable but even with that the final act is solid. I like the dog.

    Film Studies Assignment #16

    Rewatched this for my film studies class and for the most part I liked it just as much. It’s a beautiful film visually and with its music also. I love the near future style of it and the emotional depth the film has. It asks a lot of interesting questions that could have very big ramifications. The core of the story is still just theodores relationships though and that is done really well. It’s all believable…

    ★★★

    An interesting color palette and visuals are possibly the strong point of the film. Right from the beginning you get this sense that something is off and it feels very eerie. Once the actual plot starts I found myself cringing a lot whenever she would eat things. It’s pretty weird and a little disturbing. I’m not exactly where the film thought it was going by the end but I was still intrigued although the actual end feels pretty static and…
