  • Once Upon a Time… in Hollywood

    Once Upon a Time… in Hollywood

    ★★★★

    As it turns out, a friendlier, looser Tarantino is still very much Tarantino. Front to back, this completely feels like one of their projects, feet and all. The sharp script, enjoyable reminiscence, assortment of tones, and interesting take on revisionist history all build up to an experience that ends up being a total blast. If nothing else, Once Upon a Time… in Hollywood is a joy to be with. Hanging out with these characters is like spending time with friends.…

    Whisper of the Heart

    ★★★★½

    You would have a hard time convincing me that the average person, heck people in general, have a grasp on life. No matter how much control we have over our actions, what happens to us is so very often a result of our surroundings rather than our own doing. You can go on and on about fate and destiny and whatnot, but you don’t really know until it actually comes true, or, god forbid, doesn’t. 

    And that’s why the future…

    Birdman or (The Unexpected Virtue of Ignorance)

    ★★★★

    Recommended by joaquin “the 3.5 stars guy” zanzio and MiguelsMR

    It might sound a little hyperbolic to say that Birdman is a full-on movie among the likes of Mad Max: Fury Road, but I believe it’s true, as it uses the medium in ways that other films might not even attempt. And that’s not even touching on the subject matter. Between the colorful and, at this point, iconic cinematography to the ever kinetic and inventive jazz drum score, this Best Picture…

  • Marriage Story

    Marriage Story

    ★★★★½

    I don’t know what I expected going into Marriage Story, but it was a good bit more stress-inducing than I thought it would be. There’s this sense of dread that started to creep in when all the legal stuff really starts to weigh heavy on the plot, and you are just on edge waiting for everything to explode. It’s a very quiet, yet brutal build up, and you can just always tell that there are so many emotions boiling under…

    Everything Everywhere All at Once

    ★★★★★

    Everything you’ve heard is true. 

    I’d call this a miracle work, but I think that would be inconsiderate of how controlled and thought through this is. Despite how insane this gets - and trust me, it gets very weird - the Daniels know exactly what they’re doing. It’s a vision unlike anything I have ever seen or even thought of, and it knows that. So it used every trick up its sleeve, and uses them really well. Match cuts, martial…

  • Taxi Driver

    Taxi Driver

    ★★★★½

    Recommended by Arnav

    The New York of Taxi Driver is not a pleasant one. In fact, the film seems to spend every second of its runtime with the intention of capturing the uglier aspects of the famed location. On every corner, we see streets filled with grime and trash and places populated by pimps and scum. It’s always exceedingly clear why Travis is looking for change, making the film one that isn’t always easy viewing. It’s a dark film, in…
