    ★★★★

    Nostalgia is usually emanated within happiness, filled with a yearning to return and relive a time so dear to oneself. It is typically instilled with a mentality full of positive feelings and Nobuhiko Obayashi certainly is no stranger to this, often filming past time periods in a manner that reflects childhood impulses alongside an overall fascination with the world that is shaped by a youthful consciousness. Yet with The Discarnates, Obayashi taps into a completely different side of nostalgia that…

    “Quite an experience to live in fear isn’t it? That’s what it is to be a slave.”

    With Denis Villeneuve’s sequel Blade Runner: 2049 coming up, it never felt more an appropriate time to revisit the special gem that is the Final Cut version of the 1982 classic Blade Runner. A landmark of the science-fiction genre and the film that gave birth to cyberpunk, Blade Runner’s influence is colossal and its ideas feel more relevant now than ever. I was…

    CMON BABY CMON DARLING
    LET ME STEAL THIS MOMENT FROM YOU NOW 
    CMON ANGEL CMON CMON DARLING 
    LET’S EXCHANGE THE EXPERIENCE

    The seismic burst of sound that occurs right after this statement of love in Running Up That Hill is what the entirety of this film feels like. 

    Everything Everywhere All At Once is as much of an empathy machine as it is an absurd inter dimensional sci-fi extravaganza. So rewarding that on a third watch I find myself just feeling even more…

    "Maybe there is something that explains why you still went looking for me through all of this mess."

    Don’t think I’ve ever seen a film that’s left me so baffled at what I’m witnessing and yet had me so on board with every single one of its stupidly creative flourishes; all while simultaneously amplifying its emotional intensity as it delves into a multiverse of staggering potential and the overflowingly heartfelt dynamics that hold it all together with a whirlwind of pathos

    A miracle of filmmaking honestly

    "I am a writer, a doctor, a nuclear physicist, a theoretical philosopher...but above all I am a man. A hopelessly inquisitive man just like you."

    It’s been a while since I’ve been tempted to write a long spoiler review for a film I truly love with all my heart. Well, after rewatching The Master, I’m happy to say that feeling is back and a long spoiler review has been written.

    War harms the very best of us. It strips us…

    [This review isn't great, but I like to think of it as a time capsule of my feelings back then]

    "Gentlemen of the court, there are times that I'm ashamed to be a member of the human race and this is one such occasion."

    As soon as this film ended and as soon as I wiped away the tears, I sat there astonished. There are not many films that are able to do that but Paths of Glory absolutely did.…
