    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…

    Absolutely one of the best biblical films ever made without a doubt. The score ranges from brash bombast to mournful haunting to jubilant rejoicing and is filled to the brim with songs that have stuck with me my whole life and continue to be beautiful to me when I hear them now. I'd actually have liked a bit more breathing room in the pacing just so as not to rush too quickly through each of the flag points in the actual Exodus story, but it's still fab!

    Did I really just not log anything on Letterboxd for over two months? Whoops! Well, this was my last film as r/Letterboxd's film club host and also my last film as the big cheese over there, so a sabbatical was fitting. What was even more fitting was me fluffing the selection up picking a film without any pirates for the pirate theme lol. Was pretty clearly time for me to anchor down and hand over the captain's quarters keys to somebody with a better stomach for choppy seas. Was a pleasure to host, see you soon film club x

    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.
