Portrait of a Lady on Fire ★★★★★

"Portrait of a Lady on Fire," will undoubtedly go down as one of my most pleasurable movie-viewing experiences. I saw this at the FIN Atlantic Film Festival in the city of Halifax, Nova Scotia, and feel almost privileged to have been able to witness such a beautiful, refined, and potent masterpiece on the big screen in dolby surround sound, with a crowd of people sitting alongside me. The next time I see this film, it will probably be on Blu-ray or on some streaming service, and I will most likely love it all the same, but that immaculate experience I had while sitting in the theatre will forever be lost to time, and I must now live with this sad fact for the rest of my life.
