    ★★★★

    It’s long, it’s slow, it’s boring, it’s absolutely brilliant. 

    I really do go weak in the knees anytime a movie spends more than 3 minutes in a courtroom.

    PRESUMED INNOCENT is great. I am so into how Pakula directs his actors to be quiet and calm in every movie. It’s very captivating here. Raul Julia is a real stand out for me. Bonnie Bedelia’s monologue at the end is a bit much, but the ending reallllllly got me. Another great…

    Wow. 

    Where do I even start?

    Takashi Shimura. That’s a good place to start. Every now and then I’ll be watching a movie and halfway through I’ll realize that I’m watching one of my favorite performances of all time. Laurence Fishburne in The Matrix, Scarlett Johansson in Her, Heath Ledger in Brokeback Mountain. There are plenty. But within ten minutes I knew Shimura in this movie was something special and by the end he easily made his way onto that…

    A Cronenberg film about a crazy guy reliving his traumatic childhood played by Ralph Fiennes feels like the most obvious mad libs ever. Like even before I knew this movie actually existed, I knew in my heart that it existed. Weird that Fiennes and Cronenberg didn’t work together more. They seem like an obvious match. 

    This movie is exactly what you’d expect it to be which is fine

    ★★★★½

    Squealing like a 13 year old girl because of how cute this movie is. It’s like a big, weeping, broken heart and I love it ahhhhhhhh

    There are 2 stories this movie tells. One is about a sad sap who has his heart broken and it’s fine. But the second story is the most lovely little story about 2 lovestruck cuties. 

    Faye Wong is a dream come true and Tony Leung is just a smoldering hottie. I wanna date this movie. I wanna ask this movie to come to homecoming with me. I wanna hold this movies hand at the movie theater.

    There are only 2 states of existence. Life before Parasite and life after Parasite. Unreal.

    I finally got to see Parasite tonight. A few things. 

    Go see this movie. As soon as you possibly can. 

    Do not look up anything about it. I saw it with no knowledge of what it was and it was an unbelievable experience. 

    Song Kang-ho is one of the greatest actors on the planet. 

    I’m really worried that Bong Joon-ho just made the best movie.…
