  • The Mole Agent

    The Mole Agent

    ★★★★½

    There are few films in existence that deserve unlimited and unconditional praise; The Mole Agent is one of them.
    This fourth feature-length documentary from Chilean director, writer, and Fulbright Scholar Maite Alberdi overflows with profound sentiment and humanity.

    It really hits you with the timelessness of the human condition. 

    must rewatch every Sofia Coppola movie now.

Salieri believes his prayers are answered when he eventually becomes the recognized Court Composer of Vienna. However, Salieri questions his “God-given” talent upon meeting Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart (played by Tom Hulce). The…

    Fight Club

    ★★★

    This review may contain spoilers. I can handle the truth.

    Fight Club is a truly great story and an ambitious adaptation for any director. But sometimes a truly great story is diluted by the newfound limitations (or in this case, liberations) that come with adapting a work into a different medium of art.

    The first viewing is the best viewing. With every rewatch my fondness of this fan-favorite ebbs; this is not due to familiarity with the narrative, rather it has to do with a keen awareness of the…
