    In the Bedroom

    ★★★★½

    A harrowing film in every way, an intense study of the disruption of a society that pretends to be stable at any cost.
    Field gradually dissolves the normality of this milieu, he presents the fragments, the points of attack, the vulnerability and the helplessness of of American middle class.
    It looks into the depths of the abyss that lurks in all of us. Because true terror dresses in casualness. It comes around the corner, barely noticeable, and you only recognize…

    Generic to core but Hawke's performance makes it a decent watch

    No wonder Karthik Aryan is touted as the next big superstar of Bollywood after all he can't act even for his life.

    ★★★★★

    Never have a series frustrated me, angered me and left me heartbroken more than this.
    All the members of Sacklers deserve nothing but painful deaths and even that's not enough.

  • The Great Silence

    The Great Silence

    ★★★★

    A film can hardly be made more pessimistic and hopeless, not only through its unique setting with enormous freezing cold. Carried by this mood, the aura of suffering and death, the rough staging and last but not least by its grandiose duo of leading actors all of which culminates to an inevitable showdown, which will then leave even the most hardened viewers speechless.


    Also what a talent Trintignant was, the world lost a legend today, RIP.!

  • We Own This City

    We Own This City

    ★★★★½

    In many ways We own this city is a spiritual sequel to probably the greatest TV show of all time- The Wire. It has all the elements of that classic - drugs, guns, streets of Baltimore, corrupt administration, evidence on tape, similar filmmaking which sans cliffhangers and thrill factor for authenticity, no use of music to maintain zero manipulation and live wire performances but somehow it's even more cynical and hopeless than The Wire because it's based on true story,…

  • Vikram

    Vikram

    ★★★½

    Loki's Vikram is a thinking man's masala flick full on testosterone and very little regards for female characters (they're mostly bait and props).

    What I admire the most is the guts of both Loki and Kamal to allow the younger stars drive the film, it's actually a FaFa film and Vikram becomes the part of it instead of otherwise.
    And FaFa really kills it and doesn't behave like a third wheel but as the star of his own story. Unlike…

    ★★★½

    The existence of this film speaks of the audacity and edginess that Ostlund has it in him.
    And tbh this film wouldn't be possible to make in today's cancel culture that functions on binaries and absolutism.

  • Top Gun: Maverick

    Top Gun: Maverick

    ★★★★

    The OG Top Gun was the film that first led Tom Cruise to the stardom that's unparalleled and unachievable today and now after nearly 40 years Top Gun : Maverick is the first film to acknowledge that he has grown old and that he's probably the last true blue superstar of Hollywood, the Depps, the Pitts, the Smiths had their fair share of superstardom but Cruise is untouchable. The only other star that belongs to his league is maybe Jackie Chan.
    This film is a celebration of Cruise's legacy and his undying supremacy.

  • The Northman

    The Northman

    ★★★

    I think in making it more entertaining on studio interference, Eggers lost the poignancy and gravity it needed and which evidently was in his actual vision of this.
    Everything was so rushed in the first half that it didn't allow me to either connect with Amleth or any other character and nor do I had any hate for Flojnir at all.

    Second half though had my attention more than the first because the tension rises and confrontation happens but still…
