    The Worst Person in the World

    A common misconception for young adults is that everyone is "something", be it an accountant, writer, carpenter, retail worker, or parasite. That could not be further from the truth: human beings are, by definition, ever-changing, constantly reshaping who they are in the pursuit of happiness. The level of freedom and self-awareness of the 21st century is truly crippling for many of them (nay, many of us), and we all end up beating ourselves up for having conflicting emotions and constant…

    The Matrix Resurrections

    The Matrix Resurrections is a miracle of a film. In a year where blockbusters have largely been overstuffed, forgettable CGI-fests, Lana Wachowski returns to the world that made her and her sister cinematic legends with one of the most refreshing and emotional big-budget films of the past few years.

    Coming hot off a decade that saw reboots and long-delayed sequels as the biggest moneymakers in Hollywood, The Matrix Resurrections understands that nostalgia is both good and bad. Toying right from…

    When your mind becomes obsessed with anything you filter everything else out and find that thing everywhere.

    Whilst I absolutely do not like mathematics (call it childhood trauma from school), I do really love tales of obsessions and paranoia. Darren Aronofsky's Pi is a fascinating debut, very much showing some of the filmmaker's stylistic flourishes that he would only improve upon in his future projects, while also delving into the psyche of a deeply tormented individual. One of many first…

    The Northman

    You must choose between kindness for your kin, and hatred for your enemies.

    Okay, I take back pretty much everything negative that I said about The Northman after my first viewing: this film is AWESOME! The tragedy at its core hits harder, the romance was more touching (though still a tad too simplistic and rushed), the action more visceral, and the pacing is enrapturing and hypnotic. Indeed one of the best films to come out in 2022, a mood piece through and through that is also damn entertaining.

    Last Night in Soho

    Last Night In Soho is a terrific and terrifying ghost story, hearkening back to the golden age of horror cinema from the '60s and '70s. The craft is impeccable, McKenzie is a star in the making, and the soundtrack is hauntingly beautiful. Loved it!

    Right now I got to tell you about the fabulous, most groovy experience of the year:

    74th Venice Film Festival. The man himself, Edgar Wright, was a member of the main jury. Knowing that, I set out immediately to see him, and on my first day (August 30th) I saw him with the rest of the jury members (including Annette Benning and Rebecca Hall). I was stunned, and stood still, with my mouth wide open. I thought it could never…
