    Once Upon a Time… in Hollywood

    ★★★★★

    More than a film set in Hollywood in 1969, Tarantino’s latest is a film about Hollywood in 1969, more specifically the ins and outs of Americana and the clash of cultures at a transformative time. Comprised of a series of very loosely connected vignettes that showcase the anxiety of the older generation and its resistance towards a new way of thinking, Once Upon a Time in Hollywood often veers into docu-drama territory. Made up TV episodes that might‘ve just been…

    "I'm sure I have missed a whole bunch of opportunities and I am going to miss others, but I caught a lot of them too. In the end it's about how many I catch, not how many I lose."

    [40-Year Anniversary Screening]

    “Did you know there’s ‘if’ in ‘life’?”

    I’m not sure how filmmakers in 1979 were able to watch Apocalypse Now and still feel like there was a point in continuing to make movies.

    Risky Business

    ★★★★

    Hi everyone! It took a while, but the latest video I worked on for Mouthfilm is finally here. And it's a doozy.

    We put on our dancing shoes and explore the power of dance sequences in non-musical movies, and why they so often lead to so many iconic movie moments. We're talking Tom Cruise in Risky Business, JGL in (500) Days of Summer, Travolta & Thurman in Pulp Fiction and so on.

    You can watch this video here.
