    Clouds of Sils Maria

    ★★★★

    This is the film to show people who say Kristen Stewart can’t act. Clouds of Sils Maria (dir. Olivier Assayas) is incredibly engaging because of its well crafted screenplay and stellar lead performances. Juliette Binoche is fantastic; I can’t wait to see her in the high-ly anticipated High Life. Kristen is at her best and Chloë Grace Moretz delivers a fitting supportive performance. My only negative criticism is that it can get a bit repetitive and loose ends of the plot could have been tied together better. Check it out if you’re a moviegoer who enjoys prolonged, riveting dialogue.

    ★★★★½

    Candy (dir. Neil Armfield), much like Requiem for a Dream, is a horrifying depiction of how drug addiction can absorb every part of a person until they’re nothing but empty and remorseful.
    This is some truly heavy stuff (especially that withdrawal/hospital sequence), yet the acting and filmmaking is remarkably passionate and filled with beauty. Very well done, as haunting and hopeless as it is. Enter at your own risk.
