    ★★½

    Moana seems to miss what made what made the best Disney heroines so engaging. What is even more disappointing was that Disney of all studios weren't even able to help increase the enjoyment of this by including a collection of forgettable songs lacking any character. The sometimes creative design and luscious pallets can't salvage what is a very run-of-the-mill animation film.

    ★★★★

    The people are quiet in Manchester. They all have so much to say, yet none of them dare to say it. Brooding emotions that are on the verge of pouring out makes this drama about dissolution of life so engaging. Casey Affleck perfectly portrays a man whose life we feel to be over, and upon discovering more about him; becomes all the more tragic. The structure of this intensely human tale only makes its storytelling stronger. A story which everyone will recognise.

    In the Mood for Love

    ★★★★★

    Love. The word alone will illicit an infinite amount of responses, each one of infinite complexity. Artists have tried and will continue to try to express, for as long as humanity survives, the overwhelming nature of love. But perhaps nowhere has it's nuances and subtleties been so delicately captured cinematically, as they have been in Wong Kar Wai's: In The Mood For Love.
    Here is a film that even with almost all notions of the physicality of love eschewed, manages…
