    20th Century Women

    ★★★★½

    “Whatever you imagine your life is going to be like, know your life is not going to be anything like that.”

    Mike Mills' valentine to her mother that feels both universal and deeply personal. It's been awhile since I watched a film that felt so tender and honest, and was still able to make me burst out in laughter multiple times (that menstruation scene is pure gold).
    The performances were top notch. Annette Bening and Greta Gerwig were the stand outs for me, portraying two completely different strong, vulnerable women, and Billy Crudup was just so goddamn charming.
    Man, A24 is just unstoppable at this point.

    ★★★★½

    An excruciating and overwhelming american portrait that resembles more a psychological thriller than a biopic, Gorgeously shot and featuring a haunting score that will leave you breathless through most of its entirety, JACKIE is a masterfully crafted nightmare that proves, once again, that Pablo Larraín is one of the best contemporary directors and we're so, so lucky to have him. Natalie Portman delivers a tour-de-force, but you already knew that.
