  • High Life

    High Life

    ★★★★½

    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
    31/31

    Cold, claustrophobic and so tense. That's what The Thing is. No jump scares to terrify us, only the notion that none of the characters we follow can't be trusted; even Kurt Russel's MacReady with his fabulous hair. 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

    ★★★★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…
