    Parasite

    ★★★★½

    This. Was. Utterly. INSANE.

    I firmly believe this to be one of the best films I've ever seen. Absolutely phenomenal. #7 of all-time on Letterboxd? Yeah, that's pretty damn well-deserved. An instant addition to my personal top 10.

    Parasite is a wildly eccentric and boldly unique triumph of a film. Seamlessly blending drama, comedy, crime, and thriller elements in perfect harmony, Bong Joon-ho's tour-de-force is an ambiguous work of art that I'd find incredibly difficult to assign a single overarching…

  • Three Colors: Blue

    Three Colors: Blue

    ★★★★½

    "I don't want any belongings, any memories. No friends, no love. Those are all traps."

    Three Colors: Blue is art—a textbook example of effective visual storytelling. It's both difficult to understand, yet plain as day at the same time.

    Full to the brim with visual and auditory symbolism, the film became almost overwhelming at times. It took me on a melancholic journey, and despite demanding my full attention to every little detail on screen, its seemingly esoteric nature never felt…

    Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind

    ★★

    This review may contain spoilers. I can handle the truth.

    Prepare your pitchforks, because I'm about to go off about this film.

    Let me start by saying that this is the highest score I've ever given to a Jim Carrey film, so that alone should speak volumes for my opinion of him as an actor. Suffice it to say, this was my last attempt at finding a role of his that I might've possibly enjoyed. Now, I did find some aspects of the film to be technically appealing, but my…

  • The Witch

    The Witch

    ★★★★

    The Witch is by far one of the most effective works of atmospheric horror I've encountered in recent memory. The film is almost mesmerizing in a sense, presenting a dreary and dismally gray aesthetic, backed by a superbly crafted soundtrack and captivating dialogue.

    The terror of Robert Eggers' feature-length debut is in its unnerving presence—one that almost seems to engulf you—and rather than relying on cheap tricks or conventional jump scares, it plays directly on mankind's primal fears. This type…

  • Millennium Actress

    Millennium Actress

    ★★★★★

    Writing a lengthy review for Millennium Actress after only a single viewing would be a monumental disservice to Kon's masterpiece; there are far too many stones left unturned. With that said, I'll probably rewatch this a good three or four times in the near future so I can grasp every minor nuance of the work well enough to convey my thoughts. However, there is one thing I can say with the utmost confidence: this is by leaps and bounds the…
