    Suspiria

    ★★★★★

    Scavenger Hunt #83 | #14

    [SPOILERS AHEAD]

    With its stalking camera, horrific violence, mesmerizing dancing, and brilliant direction, Suspiria is a truly unique film.

    I was prompted to watch Suspiria through the Scavenger Hunt #83 challenge with the challenge being to watch a film centered around a platonic friendship. Suspiria might be somewhat of a stretch in terms of fulfilling the challenge's objective, but the theme of sisterhood is still overtly present within the film.

    Suspiria's singular vision comes clearly…

  • Mulholland Drive

    Mulholland Drive

    ★★★★★

    Watching Mulholland Drive feels almost evolutionary, constantly changing with every viewing as new details and nuances come to light. It never once feels old due to its brilliant editing that seamlessly weaves multiple side stories and ideas together in some of the best two hours of cinema ever put to screen.

    It never relies on cheap visuals or over explanatory exposition, but rather on its audience's merit and intellect.

    I constantly grow fonder of this film every time that I…

    Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness

    ★★★

    I mean, Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness is a mess, but it is a fun mess.

    Sam Raimi takes the helm and luckily his vision for the film does shine through even though one could've have hoped that the weirdness was turned even further up.

    In the end, the film excels in its individual aspects, showcasing some great filmmaking. But when the film is displayed as a continuous entity it does lack coherency, making me less engaged than I had hoped.

    The horror elements were the best part of the film.

  • Hustle

    Hustle

    ★★★★

    Hustle might not be an objectively perfect film, but it manages to faultlessly capture its intentions and play to its strengths.

    Adam Sandler is absolutely perfect in delivering a subtle, yet potent performance; the same goes for Juancho Hernangómez and the rest of the cast.

    The film doesn't exactly reinvent the wheel, but it does what it tries to do superbly. And so far it's one of my favorite films of the year.

    ★★★

    Overall a good story worth exploring. The show itself was of a good quality, but it felt somehow stretched thin. I do think it might have worked better as a film or a proper, longer series.

  • The Game

    The Game

    ★★★★

    A truly entertaining film. David Fincher's The Game is intense beyond messure and a thrilling ride from start to finish. It makes you think you know what will happen, but still manages to surprise you, perfectly placing you in the paranoid mind of the protagonist. Michael Douglas is always a pleasure to watch and paired with David Fincher's sense of direction it made for a satisfying film with an even more satisfying ending.

    The Game is one of those films that has been sitting idle in my watchlist for years for no apperant reason. And now I finally got around to watching it. Glad I did.
