    Elvis

    ★★★½

    Review In A Nutshell:

    Baz Luhrmann’s usual sensibilities swiftly make their mark in Elvis, creating a vibrancy that gives the overall experience a delectable flavour. The narrative showcases not only a timeline of his career but also the pieces and contexts that have shaped it, thus a justified (almost) 3-hour runtime. With a commanding lead and supportive performances, it carries with it a theatrical flavour that feels appropriate. Nuance may feel absent but it comes with an assurance of entertainment.

    The Sadness

    Review In A Nutshell:

    Weaving a timely theme to a gore-feat experience, The Sadness is an example of a vision that feels too preoccupied with the latter than prioritising a solid story. Without its commitment to the extremities of life’s grotesque and punishing qualities, this is a hollow and lifeless ride.

    Review In A Nutshell:

    We Need to Talk About Kevin throughout left me extremely frustrated; it has a strong premise and the performances brought by the cast are beyond excellent, but the film's emotional pile up of unsympathetic hate towards its titular subject was simply exhausting.

    The film doesn't seem to have any solid purpose towards the relationship between Kevin and his mother, Eva; leaving the audience with scenes that executes its emotions perfectly, but left with a blank canvas…

    I was kind of bummed that it didn't speed up every time the word bee was said.
