    Film Club Secret Cinema (Round 2): Primary Movie

    Firstly: thanks to my secret recommender. This was beautiful! I can’t wait to see what you’ve picked for me next πŸ’›

    American Honey is a glorious picture of youth, the whirlwind adventures of life, hardship, love... I loved the intertwining shots of America’s natural beauty with the harsher, industrial side. As someone who’s only been to your typical touristy hotspots in the US such as California and NYC, that’s one of the…

  • Midsommar



    Well... where to begin? This was probably my most anticipated film from this year, and it didn’t let me down! True to form, Ari Aster is the master of creating dread and frightening us with reality driven fears. Right from the emotionally charged opening, I was hooked. Soaked in a warm, pastel colour palette and gorgeous cinematography, MidsommarΒ is openly deceiving. Evil lurks beneath the surface, and Aster has the best time playing with that. This film was totally my style…

    The Girl Who Leapt Through Time


    Not gonna lie, this was pretty cute and charming. I am a sucker for a good time travel movie, and while this one was nothing drastic, it was still really good. I really enjoyed the dynamic between the three main characters, and Makoto was especially very endearing. It was mostly light-hearted, with a few emotional moments towards the end of the film. It didn’t strike a huge emotional high for me, which would probably have bumped it up a bit…

    In the Mood for Love


    Film Club Secret Cinema (Round 3): Primary Movie.

    On a technical level, In the Mood for Love is a masterpiece. The cinematography is next level, there was some incredible artistic choices and the score was also really beautiful. Unfortunately I didn’t really connect with this as much as I thought I would, which is strange, because I definitely would’ve pegged this as my style of film (and I can totally see why my person picked this for me!). I’m not…

    To be honest, I never really knew all that much about this movie, I thought it was going to be lighthearted. God I was so wrong. My heart feels so sad yet so full after seeing this. The screenplay is really so beautiful and they created such a heartfelt story. I might’ve given it more had I not had to pause it halfway and come back hours later, but I definitely want to watch it again with my undivided attention.…

    Film Club Secret Cinema: Alternative Movie.Β 


    That was one hell of a drug trip.Β 

    This was my first NoΓ© film and it was definitely as wild as I imagined it would be. Everything was fascinatingly unsettling from the hypnotic dance sequences to the violent behaviour from the effects of the drug. I was wondering where it was headed at the 40 minute mark or thereabouts, but it soon descended into a surrealistic nightmare and I was all in. I…
