    The Wicker Man

    ★★★★½

    The wicker man is an excellent example of how you build up a terrifying and hopeless atmosphere in such a bizarre but effective way.

The story structure made no sense to me either and there was never really anything pushing the story forward or anything to develop the characters.

    Paris, Texas

    ★★★★½

    A truly unique experience. I knew nothing about this film before watching it and this was great. Paris, Texas is a heartfelt and well told story. The film is over two hours but went by so quickly because of how invested I was in the story and characters. The ending was done so well and in general was a really clever way to end it. It also made it feel even more emotional.
    I will never forget Paris, Texas.

    It was a bizarre experience but one that was full of creativity and some genuinely impactful dialogue. Nicolas Cage was excellent in this too.
