Lucas has written 6 reviews for films during 2019.

  • The Two Popes

    The Two Popes

    ★★★★

    In times where polarised opinions can't coexist, this becomes a necessary movie — a informal class on dealing with differences.

    Pryce, Hopkins and Meirelles at their very best.

  • Good Will Hunting

    Good Will Hunting

    ★★★½

    While the story is somewhat predictable, the stellar performance of both Matt Damon and Robin Williams is enough of a reason to watch this film even in 2019.

  • City of God

    City of God

    ★★★★

    Highly immersive even 17 years later.
    Photography. And. Camera. Moves.

  • The Laundromat

    The Laundromat

    ★★½

    Despite compelling and with an important thematic, the greatest accomplishment of this film is to put together this many familiar faces in a Netflix production.

    While it fakes it’s way in an attempt to be “The Big Short” of the Panama Papers leak, it also fails miserably with such plain plot.

    Beautiful colours and a few smart camera movements probably made my ears forget about paying attention to the soundtrack – this or it was so unremarkably generic I can’t remember listening to sounds other than the characters’ lines.

  • Big Fish

    Big Fish

    ★★★★

    This review may contain spoilers. I can handle the truth.

    Lessons on keeping life fun and imaginative at any age.


    Possibly the Forrest Gump of a younger generation.

  • Reservoir Dogs

    Reservoir Dogs

    ★★★★½

    One of my favourite Tarantino movies. For those who came late to the Tarantino game, think Hateful Eight but done right.
