    Night Music

    Over the past few weeks, I have become increasingly busier in my life, spending less time watching movie and after movie and trying to be more proactive, either writing scripts and music, reading books, helping around the house, or playing around with experimental techniques. It's the first real time that I haven't felt the physical need to watch films constantly since early 2017, which is insane given that I have had an average of over 2 films a day since…

    Goodbye to ratings.

    After a long and careful examination, I have finally decided to stop giving ratings to the films I watch. This was a long time coming, and not an easy choice to make, but one that I found to be necessary.

    Back when I…

  • Twin Peaks

    Twin Peaks

    Starting my 5th rewatch of this wonderful show, at this point a yearly tradition, for the first time with sis and dad. I think I will make a long video about why this series has become so important to me since first watching it in 2017, that will be a labor of love for sure.

    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…

  • Heat


    Heat remains Michael Mann's greatest cinematic achievement. A crime epic that perfects the "cops vs robbers" storyline, understanding the thin line between the two sides: Pacino's Hanna and De Niro's McCauley are one and the same, the former negligent in his private life and upholding the law in questionable ways, and the latter having an admirable code of ethics that is used for robberies. While they are both on the same level throughout the film, it's only in its final…
