    The Spook Who Sat by the Door

    ★★★★

    I like the simple aesthetic of this film as editing and sound design weren’t given much attention, but the story was the focus. Also, the ending made me like the film more because it ended in a way I didn’t expect. I also respected the acting in this film. Overall I thoroughly enjoyed it because it’s a film about revolution and fighting for a cause.

    ★★★½

    The story felt like a biblical story just told with rabbit characters. But the animation is beautiful. It was definitely great to watch just for animation techniques and color.

    Side note: I’m still trying to recover from some of those brutal scenes and images.

    You will be pouring tears like a tsunami. A story that focuses on the beautiful human spirit after a tragic incident. The cinematography, editing, acting and story are all extremely beautiful and empowering. The film was touching and entertaining from start to finish.

    The Rocky Horror Picture Show

    ★★★½

    I very much dislike musicals, but this film/musical stands out from all the others because of its unique aesthetic. I’ve never watched Rocky Horror Picture Show until today, and I’m really glad I watched it. This cult classic film really showcases society’s viewpoint or perspective on sexuality, at the time, and the film tosses society’s opinion out the window. Even disregarding the plot and musical theatre aspects of it, the film shows hints of appreciation for classic films like Frankenstein. The aesthetic really drives this movie and it’s a cult classic that needs to be watched and respected by all viewers.
