    Annihilation

    ★★★★½

    This review may contain spoilers. I can handle the truth.

    Much like the meteor that came and landed on our planet, it obliterated a significant portion of Earth’s ecosystem, ranging from fauna to flora; a scientific accident that changed everything. It had annihilated the old and brought life to the new, with those that survived evolving to the needs of their own survival.

    It can be said that the incident of Alex Garland’s Annihilation is merely an accidental occurrence, where the point of impact has left an ever-growing ripple -…

  • Sweet Country

    Sweet Country

    ★★★★

    Australia has long carried a burdening history of injustice towards the rightful owners of the land, the Aboriginals and Torres Strait Islanders, of which a brief summary here would not comprehensively identify the tragedies that they have suffered, one that spans beyond multiple generations and for which the country has yet to completely be forgiven for, if ever such could be possible. Australian cinema has longed dwelled on such trauma and injustices, captured from both perspectives, that if one is…

    Love, Simon

    ★★★½

    Love, Simon dives deep into the awkwardness, repressed and vulnerable tightrope of teenage identity. Our protagonist is a boy who holds a secret, he’s gay, and he fears to share and express such a fact to his loved one, may that be his family or his tightly knit group of friends.

    Director Greg Berlanti has crafted this empathic narrative with gentleness and stability. Rarely does the film overreach it’s dramatic arcs, aside for maybe that climax which I felt was…

    Review In A Nutshell:

    Politics and foreign affairs aren’t in my wheelhouse, but writer-director Armando Iannucci makes such somewhat accessible through it’s satire and wit that ranges across the entire spectrum of humour, from the low to the high-brow. Unfortunately, because of this pre-conceived detachment to the subject matter, I found myself only halfway sunk into the characters and the tense situation that they find themselves in. Some of the jokes did land well enough that I actually had more…

    Review In A Nutshell:

    The last couple of months have been hard, staring into the abyss titled "life"; with very little room behind me to run to, soon leaving me with only one single decision, which is to move forward. I am constantly worried about my future, whether or not I would find success in my chosen career pathway, whether I would find love,…

    Georges Franju was a talented French filmmaker who possessed the ability to penetrate the shell of his audience, to strike their most inner fears, vulnerabilities that we ourselves aren't even aware of. He managed to strike a nerve in me with the short documentary, released in 1949 titled Blood of the Beasts, where he takes us inside the frightening events that take place within a slaughterhouse, witnessing animals at their most helpless, an inability to…
