    Do the Right Thing

    ★★★★

    [78]

    "Violence is immoral because it thrives on hatred rather than love. It destroys community and makes brotherhood impossible. It leaves society in monologue rather than dialogue. Violence ends by defeating itself."

    A potent, timeless political commentary delivered with an unmatched passion. Told not with a burning hatred for the other side, but with a nuanced understanding of humanity's moral uncertainty. Filled to the brim with moments that will tug at your moral compass and question who is the true…

    [84]

    Ferrara's most humanistic film and Dafoe's best performance. An absolute workhorse of empathy and nihilism centered around a collective fate that unifies a broken population. A large part of the film's success is Ferrara's bare-bones manner in delivering its message; just too consistently touching to be ignored.

    Waves proves to be both laughably incompetent in its execution and utterly offensive in what it expects of its audience. Shults' trainwreck aims less to craft an emotionally charged story about a family chugging through a relatable, yet dark struggle in their lives and more to impress as many crowds of people it possibly can, which is ultimately its unforgivable downfall.

    However surface-level the plot may be, Shults insists on tacking on staples of the typical film that would…

    But I can see that deep down you're at peace in your heart. You've done the right things. You've done your art... You've done everything that you can possibly do to have a faith in this world that they've destroyed.

    There's gonna be a really big light, Cisco... but don't be afraid of it. It's our love. It's our wisdom. We're going together towards this big light. My heart against your heart. And together, we're taking all beings with…
