    ★★★★★

    Still one of the most important films I have ever seen. The last 5 minutes of this film absolutely gives me bone chilling chills even on the 3rd viewing. The “Epilogue” about Charlottesville really puts everything you need to know about the state of America right now. I have such a deep passion for this movie and I will never stop loving it.

    First Man

    ★★★★½

    What a beast of a film this was. First Man isn’t perfect but it still continues Chazelle’s brilliant streak of excellence. This is Chazelle’s weakest but that’s not a knock on Chazelle or First Man. It just so happens that his first two films Whiplash and La La Land are just flawless films. Those films connected with me on a deeper level and First Man did that as well, just not as much as his first two films.
