    The Life and Death of Colonel Blimp

    ★★★★½

    This only my second film from Powell and Pressburger, but I feel they'll end up as some of my favourite directors. Much like The Red Shoes, The Life and Death of Colonel Blimp feels like a classic right of the bat and it didn't take long for me to realize that it didn't only feel like a classic, but actually is one. Story wise you have everything: war, romance and friendship. Terrific dynamics between Candy and Theo, never had I…

    Portrait of a Lady on Fire

    ★★★★★

    I find it hard to find words which would do justice to the sumptuous beauty of Le portrait de la jeune fille en feu. The fact that Céline Sciamma's latest movie only got released today here instead of having a limited release in December was both a blessing and a curse. While I was frustrated with having to wait for quite a while, it allowed me to explore the rest of her filmography and I think it only made me…

The direction was pretty good and I really dug the look of the film. Where I'm not so sure…

    ★★★★★

    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…
