    12 Angry Men

    ★★★★★

    1000 films. This is, according to Letterboxd, the 1000 film I've watched. A number, which to many of you must be nothing. After all, when I joined this site back in 2015 I was in awe by the amount of films people on here had watch. I knew I would eventually reach this special number, but it seems like it was yesterday that I had only watched about 400 films. And for such a special occasion (it really isn't), I…

    Gravity

    ★★★★

    It's easily been four years since I last saw Gravity and I'm pretty sure I didn't appreciate as much as I did back then. I think I was more entertained during my first watch than impressed; at that time I didn't know shit about cinema (not that I know more now...). I'm pretty sure I didn't notice the incredibly long shots and sumptuous images. I can tell you I did this time. It's really an impressive film from a technical…

    Roma

    ★★★★★

    I must have been the only who went into Roma with almost no expectations.

His long takes never feel like…

    Moonlight

    ★★★★½

    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…

    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…
