    Memories of Murder

    Chills. LITERAL CHILLS.

    So I recently played a video game namely Persona 4 Golden where a bunch of 15 year-olds set out to solve a murder mystery taking place in their small Japanese town. No matter how juvenile that sounds, especially given that it's Pokemon style role playing game, the game is actually quite serious with a central premise focusing on "finding the truth". The gang of these children frequently come across potential suspects, all of whom literally seem to…

    My video essay on the film: www.youtube.com/watch?v=55gJzt_8o_Y

    Review:

    HOLY SHIT OKAY CALM DOWN

    In our universe, this film has received such acclaim that the weight of "liking" it falls on every cinephile, particularly on me. As soon as I started re-watching, that "pressure" begun weighing down on me. But as the narrative slowly unfolded, I lost myself in the story, the characters, the unprecedented twists (that still surprised me despite having watched it already), the complex Japanese culture, the editing,…

    Dil Se..

    An astounding, dreamy, energetic love story where the tragedy is that no matter how much the so called Hero makes advances on the so called Heroine, to the point of being a total creep, the Heroine can't break away from her fate. It's as if the Hero embodies India, who is trying hard to understand the remote niches of her own land. And then there is the Heroine who has seen the "real world" and refuses to come out of…

    Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness

    It wasn't until five minutes before the movie began that I had Googled and discovered who the director was. And oh boy it still left me flabbergasted! Sam Raimi goes back to his roots of B-grade horror, being an asshole in scenes that didn't even need horror. Whilst I was both scared and in seventh heaven over it. "Keep 'em coming, Sam!!", I screamed as I witnessed a gory death just a hair away from being R rated. This is…

    Un Chien Andalou

    Once you start taking baby steps in cinema, at least when I did, you come across the most basic starter list (IMDB 250). Then you move ahead to broaden your horizon for more serious, obscure films. Then you move on to films that challenge your entire idea of a "film". It is then you realize the term "film" cannot be encompassed in a few mere genres like Action, Comedy or Romance. A film can be anything. And everything. A film…

    The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring

    This review may contain spoilers. I can handle the truth.

    This is no doubt one of the greatest cinematic treats of all times but what is even more impressive is that no matter how many times I watch it, whether out of nostalgia or out of a sick bed, the magic just never wanes. I cannot say this about all films, especially my most favorite ones. Grave of the Fireflies, JFK, Cure (1998) are some of the cinematic masterpieces of world cinema but their magic and power sort of thins…
