    First Reformed

    ★★★★½

    Recommended by Devin Hung 

    In a way, First Reformed could be seen as a depiction of why one would fall away from Christianity. As someone who grew up in the church, I’ve heard many a story of people deciding to ditch religion and go down other paths. Although I obviously don’t want others to do this, it’s an understandable sentiment. Many fundamentals of the religion circle around obedience and devotion. It’s not that we have no free will, but the…

    Mission: Impossible - Fallout

    ★★★★★

    Ethan Hunt is a man haunted by his past. Despite the fact that he’s very, very good at his job, the guy has more regrets and complications than most criminals. It makes it so that every decision is an uneasy one, testing and toying with his morality and past life. One of the best things about the Mission: Impossible movies are that you can watch any of them standalone, without context from the others, and still have a blast. In…

    Your Name.

    ★★★★★

    I struggle to think of any film that has a stronger power for me in the ways that it combines visuals and audio. Whenever the film strikes a perfect harmony—which is like every time that score comes in—it’s just pure movie magic. My god, who allowed movies to be this good? 

    I was originally planning to write a much longer review for this, but honestly I don’t know how or even where to begin. Just know that I love everything…

    Film Club Pick #10, chosen by Me

    Also recommended by truett

    A wickedly entertaining boiling pot of melodrama and delusion, shrieking and cackling alongside its group of schoolgirls as they continue to portray their one character traits (hilariously shown by the ways in which they’re named). I would be convinced if you had told me that there’s a method to all this madness, but part of the method seems to be the lack of it, throwing in consistently absurd situations…

    Paris, Texas

    ★★★★★

    I haven’t seen a movie capture the distance between individuals this viscerally since In the Mood for Love

    Paris, Texas is a film built upon the relationships that it presents. Every question, every revelation, and every soul stirring moment strikes because of the ways in which the rest of the movie has showcased the people within the story. Its heart is not just one of the characters’ change, but also of how these changes affect the people around them.

    And…

    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…
