    Saving Private Ryan

    "[...]For example, some films claim to be antiwar, but I don’t think I’ve really seen an antiwar film. Every film about war ends up being pro-war." ~ Francois Truffaut

    Is it possible for a film about war to be anti-war? Can a film that entertains us with conflict truly condemn war? I think it is possible. But that is not what Saving Private Ryan is. I'm quite baffled by the number of people who call this one of the best…

    ★★

    Very surprised by the high 3.9 rating, considering this really seems like a film you either love or hate. As you can guess from my rating, I'm at the other end of the spectrum.

    Mad Max: Fury Road stands head and shoulders above 99% of big-budget studio movies of the past decade. In an era where…

    The Handmaiden

    ★★★★½

    The Handmaiden is one of the best-looking films ever made. It's hard to imagine something more visually perfect. A Hollywood-produced film like this would absolutely sweep the floor at the Oscars in every below the line category. The cinematography, costume & production design, makeup/hairstyling, and everything else involved in the marvellous worldbuilding of 1930s Korea are astonishing. I can't think of a more immersive period film. But the physical surface alone can't make a film immerse you this much unless there…
