    Crip Camp: A Disability Revolution

    ★★★★

    CRIP CAMP was so much more than I thought it was going to be. It starts out one summer at Camp Jened where we're introduced to a lot of teenagers who will go on to become part of a very important movement. An introduction of like-minded people who form a bond and share their ideals with each other. It may have taken years for the movement to peak but that's just a testament to their determination and strength. An absolutely powerful historical moment that brought me to happy tears. This should be considered essential viewing.

    The Passion of Anna

    ★★★★

    THE PASSION OF ANNA is the third instalment in the unofficial Bergman Trilogy of films where Liv Ullmann's character is abused by her husband/partner played by Max von Sydow. There were numerous instances while revisiting this film that I was immediately aware of similarities with the other two (HOUR OF THE WOLF and SHAME). I'm glad that the Bergman's Cinema boxset presents these three together and I can honestly say that I want to revisit them over again to see what other similarities I can pick up on. The duo of Ullmann and von Sydow is a great combination as they're both always superb.

It's not for the faint-hearted but a good choice for those that can handle some graphic scenes as the story is interesting and there are some great camera shots.

    Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker

    ★★

    My main expectation when I go into a STAR WARS film is to be entertained. The plot doesn't even have to be that great as long as it's entertaining - enjoyable characters and some fun action and adventure. I was highly anticipating THE RISE OF SKYWALKER...but man, was I disappointed.

    Let me start with the aspects of the film that I did like. The acting was pretty solid all around with Adam Driver being the stand out. The score by…
