    AFI FEST #4
    This was my most anticipated of the entire year and it didn't disappoint in the slightest. A haunting look at the grief process led by Andrew Scott, while Paul Mescal, Claire Foy, and Jamie Bell rounding out this amazing cast. It's rare (to me at least) to find a film with all the actors being so vulnerable and heartbreaking it was honestly such an honor to see. (Also have to shout out the breathtaking cinematography; from the…

    AFI FEST FILM #1
    An epic yet intimate tale of a motorcycle club told by an all star cast. Solid direction and a great soundtrack but doesn't have the hugest emotional hook for me. Tom Hardy is the suprise standout and I always love seeing a Jodie Comer performance. Needed way more Mike Faist. Dads are going to love love this. Hopefully general audiences get to see this soon; plus any adult drama made by a major studio not going…

    “Can you find the wolves in this picture?”

    A big grand masterful historical epic by the man himself Martin Scorsese. The equivalent of silent tears running down your face as you are forced to witness greed and racism run through and ruin the lives of the Osage people; internally screaming for it to stop. Then we cut to present day as we look down on a tribe singing “Wahzhazhe A Song For My People” as a reminder that the people…

    “What if this is a past life as well, and we are already something to each other in our next life? Who do you think we are then?”

    Worked a whole lot better for me on second watch. If I’m honest I might have impulsively gave the 5 stars to this one to fit in with the hype but the more I sat with it the more I kind of found it overhyped in my mind? Luckily some Wing Stop…

    I honestly have no words on this magnificent bold story that will hopefully shake some people up. In a normal year, I would have loved to have seen this at TIFF in a packed theather and watch the Oscar buzz rise for the entire team behind this film. Carey Mulligan will get her Oscar, you mark my words.

    I'll leave everyone with my non-spoiler thoughts while watching the film:
    OH
    OH MY GOD
    OH MY GOD
    OH MY GOD
    WTF
