    Je T'Aime, Je T'Aime

    ★★★★★

    The most emotionally draining film I’ve seen this year, the most emotionally draining film I’ve seen in a couple of years, maybe even the most emotionally draining film I have ever seen; films about time and memory resonate with me because I have such a knee-jerk reaction to both themes: time is something I fear because it’s something that cannot be stopped and memory is something I value most because it allows me to remember things that have shaped who…

    Once Upon a Time in the West

    ★★★★★

    “There were no dollars in them days”

    It begins with silence. The bluest sky cascading down reaching the sand, a marriage of color; this is, without a doubt, the tannest, dirtiest, grittiest sand you’ll possibly ever see in your entire life. This sand looks worn out, as if countless boots or horse hooves have walked across it for years, decades, maybe even centuries – there is life in the west, we cannot see it yet. Then, this piercing noise: it’s…

    The Godfather: Part III

    ★★★★½

    The first thought when discussing “The Godfather: Part III” is one of defense: it is NOT one of the most bastardizing final films in a trilogy ever, it is not the worst thing Coppola has ever done, and it does NOT soil anything Coppola sets up with his trilogy – if anything, when understanding that Coppola intends the first two to be grouped together and this is almost an optional viewing (he calls the series a duology, this an epilogue),…

    The Godfather: Part II

    ★★★★★

    My history of “The Godfather: Part II” spans several years – and several viewings – of my life, each moment culminating in where I am currently. My mother, who I often credit with kickstarting my love for Cinema, showed me “The Godfather” at a very formative time in my life: my taste was changing from Blockbuster extravaganza to certified Classics of the medium and when she showed me it, it changed how I viewed Cinema – it had awakened something…

    ★★★★★

    EDIT: WHY DOES THIS HAVE SO MANY LIKES WTF

    A glorious, dazzling film. A love letter to Noir as Sergio Leone's famous (and best) film Once Upon a Time in the West was for the Western genre.

    Perhaps the best script ever written (biased of course) with perhaps the greatest (or one of them) actors to ever grace the art of filmmaking. Roman Polanski's Magnum Opus and Jack Nicholson's best performance he's ever done, perhaps his best, as he plays…
