    I don't think I can really put into words how important what Vincent Van Gogh has come to symbolise for me in my life is. So please, if you have 5 minutes, just listen to James Blake's cover of Vincent by Don McLean, and head over to check out my older brother Nathan's profile here. His life mirrored Van Gogh's in more ways than I can describe. He took his life on Valentine's day this year, and it would mean a lot if anyone took the time to see how amazing his film taste was.

    I was so deeply affected by this film, that I've had to contemplate what my thoughts are for a week now, and I still don't know if I can really do my feelings justice. It's incredibly personal both as a film in itself and in how it resonated with my own experiences, so it caused some deep introspection on a subject that for the most part grief has had the upper hand in preventing any clarity from being found in…

    This film is a lovely time capsule into the life of Jesus, as well as into my childhood. Gorgeous stop-motion, interwoven with wonderfully expressive hand-drawn work, breathes a befittingly heavenly life into every frame. It takes artistic liberties here and there and doesn't quite live up to the breadth and spiritual power of Jesus' actual ministry, death and resurrection as a result, but by retaining the fundamentals of the gospel, it builds its house on a rock steadier than most equivalent attempts. Cast is nuts too.

    A world within our world. Seeing such a specifically personal slice of culture and identity is fascinating. It's like Cheryl Dunye's own little microscope, that no matter how small makes everything you view through it seem larger than life. It's a film and story with an itching curiosity for the vibrant, and a compulsion to give voice to unvoiced stories.

    I've never been one to get emotional looking at art to be honest, but this film genuinely had me welling up in parts just because of how heavenly it is to look at. I think maybe Loving Vincent is the only other film I can compare it to as far as how gobsmackingly beautiful it is. The music too! Man oh man, the music is so good. Absolute treat of a film, I'd highly recommend it to anyone!

    I've liked each of Bong Joon Ho's films that I've seen, but I felt like a new door was opened watching this. Getting chills from sheer amazement is normally a pretty good indicator to me that a film is a bit of a cut above the rest, and that happened at least a handful of times in this. It's utterly terrifying some times, and beautiful and moving others. I loved it so much.
