    Silence Has No Wings

    “Come to think of it, life with no turning points is a bore”

    An episodic meditation on post war Japan, specifically interested in the physical and psychological impact of the atomic bomb. This allegorical journey stretching from one end of the country to another is told through the displacement of a butterfly larva. A wistful Mariko Kaga (representing the insect) traverses Japan's major hubs, observing the uncertainty of the times and the dismay of its inhabitants.

    Damnation

    Through hopelessness and tedious monotony Damnation expresses indifference towards being. Focusing on the cyclical erosion of humanity and our environment, Tarr creates a narrative based solely on the very natural melancholy and disillusion accompanied with existence.

    The Witch

    ★★★★

    “Wouldst thou like to live deliciously? ”

    The Witch intimately dissects the horrors of colonialism, faith, starvation, coming of age, witchcraft, satany and grief.  All of these themes are enveloped in an extremely entertaining and well researched screen play. The whimsical and dramatized old english dialogue is a true selling point for this film. I think Robert Eggers crafts well executed period pieces that are extremely entertaining and horrifying.
