    The Passion of Joan of Arc

    ★★★½

    I watched the Eureka Blu-ray, the 20fps silent version, because from what I understand, that’s closest to how Dreyer intended this movie to be seen. Even though it premiered in both Denmark and France with a live orchestra. But hey, I’m willing to try and experience watching a 90+ minute movie in complete silence, an experience I can’t say I’ve had before.

    So obviously this is one of the greats from the silent film era. I’m just still not too…

    Adelheid

    Once Upon a Time… in Hollywood

    ★★★★

    Even though a lot of it felt somewhat aimless throughout, I did find myself enjoying most of what I was seeing onscreen. I feel a lot of that was because of the performances, specifically Brad Pitt and Leonardo DiCaprio were amazing. Add to that the amazing production design—the whole late 60s/early 70s Los Angeles setting was absolutely fantastic—and you have something I could've probably watched another hour of.

    I initially thought I wasn't gonna rate this much higher than 3,5…
