    Pompeii

    ★★★★

    Holy shit I didn’t remember those final moments hitting so hard. This got better on rewatch and I genuinely admire so much about it. The scale is captured so perfectly because there’s a sense of both the magnitude of the event and the isolation and density of the city. I love how important the conditions feel from the beginning, where the harsh rain leaves a thick layer of distortion on the screen. It boils throughout (literally) until an explosive third…

    To the Wonder

    ★★★★★

    Almost indescribable what Malick is doing here, but this is arguably his most free-flowing and boundless work. He strips everything down to raw human expression.

And needless to say, it’s all captured by such a perfect lens, floating through space and time.

    I Stand Alone

    ★★

    I Stand Alone should’ve been intense, but it was tedious and drab. It should’ve been an interesting delve into a warped mind, but it was just annoying and obnoxious. There are occasionally some good lines of dialogue, but it’s all outweighed by how hateful everything is, and to no avail. I didn’t gain anything from this experience. It was essentially a reprehensible individual wandering around with gross (long winded, repetitive) narration and occasional repellent actions. I didn’t get much from…
