  • Titane

    Titane

    Julia Ducournau’s Titane is a unique, feral, and riveting masterwork that conjures the magic of imaginative filmmaking as it blends body-horror, dark comedy, and drama. Ducournau is the only one who can handle all of this and still be on top. Her maelstrom of a director's touch covers every inch of the screen with bodies beat to a pulp, the blending of the carnal with metallic transformations, father-daughter junctures, darkly comedic jokes, great use of a jukebox, and the return…

    Petite Maman

    CΓ©line Sciamma’s follow-up to Portrait of a Lady on Fire, Petite Maman, is a sweet, tender, and fairytale-esque film that focuses on grief and escapism during your childhood. Even though it is only 72-minutes long, it is wholly enchanting and poignant. A film to watch when it rains, when you are feeling down, or when you want to remember how it feels to be a kid again. To cherish those small moments with friends and being there for each other, learning how to forge a friendship. Truly special.

    Mothering Sunday

    Mothering Sunday is yet another period piece with great performances, beautiful cinematography, posh costumes, and has an excellent score to accompany it. Still, it’s so self-important and β€˜elegantly’ contrived that it feels hollow and unenjoyable. You leave the film with something in mind: a more prosaic film is under the wraps of mediocre storytelling.

    Like Jackie, Spencer masterfully crafts horror & beauty within the isolation of its main character (almost like a ghost story in the midst of a fairytale). It is beautifully crafted and executed on all ends; the strings by Greenwood, the cinematography by Mathon, and Larrain's direction, and in the heart of it, there is the brilliant Kristen Stewart with the performance of her career. Jackie tackles the mourning, while Spencer deals with mental health. Both of them (Jackie and…

    Belfast is sweet, charming, and has visually stunning cinematography. Although it is very cliche at times, it does indeed warm your heart. The highlight of the film is the fantastic CaitrΓ­ona Balfe.

    Last Night in Soho

    TIFF 2021: Film #18

    I'm quite mixed with Last Night in Soho. The first half is wonderful; the horror references, the killer soundtrack, McKenzie being fantastic, and its magnetic style, but the last act is unfortunately very poor and muddled. Many positive aspects surround this film, albeit its negative aspects diminish the first sections' entertainment. I May need to sit through it; I am a bit disappointed.

    Full Review soon.
