    Carnival of Souls


    "I don't wanna be left alone!"

    Disorienting and disturbing to watch. Meditates on what it means to be dead by fusing the physical world with the afterlife. Ending a bit unnecessary, but I loved how nuanced and tension-filled it was.

    "Chungking Depress"

    Never seen a Filipino movie quite like this. Mixes folklore-inspired childlike sensibilities with adult romance; equal amounts magic realism and coming-of-age. Nadine Lustre and Irene Villamor both in their career-best. That "Heto Na Naman" tune will be stuck in my head for a while. One of the films that will make you reaffirm your love for cinema. And that ending! I could probably watch it countless times and still not get tired of it. Salute to all strong women out there!

    P.S. This would've been a great double feature with Elise.

    A Portrait of Ga


    The cinematic equivalent of drinking hot cocoa on a cold, rainy night. I miss my grandma.
