    Portrait of a Lady on Fire

    ★★★★½

    Hypnotic, tender and incredibly sensual. Definitely a slow burner but one that is visually and metaphorically beautiful.

    Movie #92 of my 1001 Movies You Must See Before You Die viewing journey.

    Everyone that thinks Benigni took the Holocaust and turned it into a joke completely misunderstood this movie.

    More in depth review to follow on my upcoming podcast.

    Once Upon a Time… in Hollywood

    ★★★★★

    Tarantino's most entertaining, mature, well-written and completely unique movie. Possibly the best movie he's ever made and left me feeling like he has finally come into his own without needing to copy anyone else

    The Irishman

    ★★★★★

    Scorcese has delivered what is possibly one of the best late-career movies ever directed. An absolute triumph that brings together all the best parts of his previous mob movies while adding an emotional weight that I've never seen done before in a movie of its style. This is possibly the best film of the year and one of the best films Scorcese has made since Goodfellas.
