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

    Last month, I decided to explore Robert Bresson’s filmography. He quickly became one of my all-time favorite filmmakers. Last night, I watched The Trial of Joan of Arc. It is another spiritually impactful masterpiece from Bresson.

    The historical story of Joan of Arc is well-known. It has been told in tons of films. Why did Bresson create his own film adaptation and what was he trying to communicate with it? Bresson had a very pro-Christian worldview, but he was not…

    I want to re-review all of Hayao Miyazaki's films that I consider masterpieces. I already re-reviewed Princess Mononoke. I know I have been rewriting a lot of my past reviews. However, I think it is very important to revisit films I love. Sometimes I need to rewatch and rewrite my reviews for certain films. Overtime, my perspective towards certain films changes. I want to use this as an opportunity to go into detail and explain why the films I passionately…
