  • The Worst Person in the World

    The Worst Person in the World

    ★★★★★

    “And now it's all I have left. Knowledge and memories of stupid, futile things nobody cares about."

    The Worst Person in the World chronicles, in the most cathartic way, what it is to be alive. Across the chapters, every emotion, every aspect of adulthood is explored to create a mammoth portrait of people who are trying. Trying to find perfection. Julie may see herself as the worst person in the world, but she’s just one of us, someone searching for completion in a world that will not give it to her. She’s not so bad.

    The Leopard

    ★★★★★

    The Leopard is what you call an epic, a sweeping drama with a focus spanning on different generations of an aristocratic family in a changing historical landscape. Very few films out there look this good, 3 straight hours of visual beauty thanks to the illustrious costume/set design and the colourful cinematography. Visconti injects enough heart and soul into his story here to make the 3 hours fly by. The story is one of opposing outlooks, with the young (Delon and…

    Top Gun: Maverick

    ★★★★

    Grandiose, Emotional and Nostalgic. Top Gun: Maverick is to 2022 what Ford v Ferrari was to 2019. Not a perfect film, but if you look past the cliches and just enjoy this old school piece of blockbuster filmmaking that you never see anymore, you’ll have the time of your life. Tom Cruise is the greatest movie star of all time, I can’t begin to thank him for his commitment to these films. A massive improvement on the first film and it had no right to be this good. Watch it on the biggest screen you can.

    Once Upon a Time in America

    ★★★★★

    This film still doesn’t get enough credit in my eyes. Every gangster film before this glorified gangsters in one way or another, but Leone completely ends that part of the genre in a similar way he did with Once Upon a Time in the West 16 years earlier. This is a grimy, honest and unsympathetic look into the myth of the American dream from the eyes of a european. The figures here aren’t obsessed by family/loyalty but rather by their…

    Charade

    ★★★★

    Candyfloss cinema at it’s best. The film leans on Hepburn and Grant’s chemistry but rightfully so because they have an incredible on-screen connection here that you don’t see so much in modern times. It’s absolutely got the charm and atmosphere of a classic hollywood film despite coming just after the period you’d usually find such a film in, it’s almost like Hitchcock and Wilder were toned down and had a baby. Some of the comedy didn’t always hit but I was engrossed by the playful story and swept by the performances. A very enjoyable time and a new comfort movie for me.
