    Moms are the ultimate badasses 

    Bong Joon-Ho is a master of shifting tones. Many scenes can be interpreted as either disturbing and suspenseful or comical and charming. This gives his films such a unique “taste,” which makes the film intensely engrossing. He knows exactly when to build tension and when to release it, but you never fully feel relieved as the story progresses. 

    I also appreciate the subject matter, it’s clear to me that Joon-ho understands the perspective of motherhood…

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

    I wrote this for my application for Chapman University for Film Analysis just wanted to share, hope you enjoy:

    “The Lighthouse” is the best film of the year so far, and I am unsure it will be surpassed by anything. It contains the best performance of the year by Willem Daffoe, amazing sound design, a bone-chilling score, powerful editing, a hauntingly beautiful black and white cinematography, and period accurate set design and dialogue that builds a sense of ever-growing dread…

    The character of Ho is so interesting that I wish he was more present. The other characters and Wong Kar Wai’s directional style just don’t interest me. I appreciate how stylized the movie is, but the extreme wide angles and low shutter speeds just bug me. I can appreciate Kar Wai’s films and understand why viewers love them, but I don’t think I ever will.

    Master and Commander: The Far Side of the World


    There’s something about historical nautical adventures that really does it for me. The film is so immersive in its time period that even though you may not understand everything that’s happening it adds to a certain fascination. I love how it’s grounded and human while also being adventurous and fun. Highly recommended.
