  • High Life

    High Life


    Nothing less than a psychological interstellar sexual odyssey, High Life is quite the experience. I feel like Denis is tackling so many things here, and it’s not a complain. Fatherhood, isolation, survival, lust and so much more. In a way, it feels oddly similar to Tarkovsky’s Solaris; in the sense that while there’s no denying this is a science-fiction film, its focus is clearly axed on the human mind. That’s probably the best kind of science-fiction if you ask me.…

    The Lighthouse


    Still trying to figure much of this as I'm writing these lines, but man that is one atmospheric film. The music, the framing, the sound design, the lightning, the weather; it has everything to make you feel as if you were there. It also managed to, much like the two characters, make me lose my damn mind. The Lighthouse proves without a doubt that The Witch wasn't a fluke and that Robert Eggers knows damn well what he's doing. I'm still having trouble believing this actually got funded.

    All the Boys Love Hooptober 6.0

    Cold, claustrophobic and so tense. That's what The Thing is.

Ennio Morricone's synth score is constantly buzzing in our ears as we try to find someone to latch onto; someone to trust. Then there's the Thing itself; an incredible display of special effects which haven't aged…

    The House That Jack Built


    Y'all are probably gonna hate this so much.

    I feel bad, not for doubting von Trier; before even viewing I thought it would be terrific. That being said, I thought it would only be a gore fest, pretty much nothing else. I think it was really stupid of me to think that this what von Trier would offer. I won't lie, it's violent, really violent, but it's so much more than that. At its core it feels deeply philosophical. It's…

  • Moonlight



    Moonlight is another of those movies I would say is more of an experience than a movie. In a way, Moonlight is life itself; life at its hardest. Everyone can relate to Chiron, some more than others that's sure; but one way or an other, you relate to him. Whether by being a victim of bullying, growing in a difficult environment or just simply trying to fit in; trying to know who you really are. Life. This experience is simply…
