    mother!

    ★★★½

    The first half was a tense, claustrophobic thriller that I was enjoying in an uncomfortable sort of way. 

    The second half was a batshit crazy unexpected mayhem which repulsed and absorbed me equally.

    I fail to sit either side of the fence on this one and instead respect it for how it made me feel terrible for 2 hours, but was also beautiful in its darkness. 

    Now to attempt to sleep.

    ★★★★

    I’m not saying there weren’t parts of this I’d change, but I’m so so happy.

    American Beauty

    ★★★★★

    What is your purpose in life? How do you feel about yourself? How do you interact with other people? Is your life turning into one big routine?

    This film teaches you how to look closer at life, discover more, and have a better understanding of human nature. Never judge a book by its cover; there is always much more hidden underneath the surface.

    An amazingly inspirational piece with some of the most beautiful scores ever used in film. Sam Mendes does us proud.

    The Shawshank Redemption

    ★★★★★

    Shawshank may not be THE best film ever made, but is certainly one of them.

    One of the most impressive King adaptations, and shows the entire cast at their greatest.

    It expresses the need for friendship, bravery, freedom, and above all - hope.
