    Call Me by Your Name

    ★★★★★

    "We rip out so much of ourselves to be cured of things faster... but to feel nothing so as not to feel anything—what a waste.”

    This was somehow even better upon rewatch. Roger Ebert in his review of "Star Wars" talks about how the film is an 'out of body experience' for him. "Call Me By Your Name" is like this for me. It manages to immerse me in its world and story in such a special way. It engages…

    Lost in Translation

    ★★★★½

    The tone Coppola creates and maintains throughout the film is unreal. It's dreamy and soft-spoken, and it totally captivated me for the entire runtime. "Lost in Translation," is a film about finding a connection amongst a sea of excess, about finding solace through shared understanding amongst constant bombardment. It's a beautiful portrait of dissatisfaction when the world feels so big, and you feel so lost. As cheesy as it sounds, the film is about finding joy in the small things, finding fulfillment through an absence of white noise, and enjoying the moments. It's unmistakably gorgeous and I loved it.

  • American Psycho

    American Psycho

    ★★★½

    A dark blend of satire and psychological thriller, "American Psycho," is a great illustration of gross consumerism, yuppie-culture, and the homogenization that comes with the superficial lifestyle. Bale gives a truly committed performance, the comedy works well (the business card stuff is hilarious) and the production design is an underrated aspect I might add. Pretty solid.

  • Brokeback Mountain

    Brokeback Mountain

    ★★★★

    The crackling of fire at night, the vast blue sky hanging over the mountains, the gentle sound of water rushing in the distance. The confining lives that Jack and Ennis are expected to live contrasted against the vast openness and freedom Brokeback provides. Wow. "Brokeback Mountain," is absolutely gorgeous and Heath and Gyllenhaal are perfect for the film giving moving performances as two men living double lives, longing for something more, but unable to grasp it. Ang Lee's movie is a look at forbidden love, and a forbidden life. I really loved it.
