    Mulholland Drive

    ★★★★

    Who wants to have their patience be tested and challenged? Raise your hand. If you did, then this movie is for you. If not, then don’t blame me -- I warned you.

    For the devotee of David Lynch films, this may be easy to decode. If you study his films, then you know they are filled with symbolism and metaphors. I must admit I’ve only seen Eraserhead, and that was incomprehensible to me as an average movie watcher. Also, if…

  • Se7en

    Se7en

    ★★★★

    Se7en delves into human morality, hypocrisy and pragmatism. You’ve got Morgan Freeman’s apathy, Brad Pitt’s pragmatism, along with the ever presence of skepticism in life filled with hypocrisy all merging together to a complete climax at the 3rd act.

    I wouldn’t dare to set forth in Fincher’s directorial predilection. I think he wanted to blend moral metamorphosis, repugnant visuals, and dark mood enhancements in order to give Se7en an impactful finale. Not only will this movie modify your brain function, for me it is one of the most pertinent of its time.

  • Halloween

    Halloween

    ★★★★

    Michael Myers doesn’t require a character. It’s the absence of his character that makes him petrifying.

    Michael Myers doesn’t need a Freudian defense to justify his actions. He’s plain evil.

    Michael Myers is one blood-curdling, spine-chilling stalker.

    I dig the long shots of Haddonfield community with its gorgeous fall leaves while Carpenter’s SUPERB synth score is playing in the background. 

    Halloween is simply a John Carpenter masterpiece!

  • The Trial of the Chicago 7

    The Trial of the Chicago 7

    ★★★★

    Holy CARP! Judge made my hackles rise and blood boil. My late father was a judge, but SUNOVAGUN I wanted to … (censored words). He was wholly un-judicial, and I despised his character with contempt.

    I’d say this is perhaps the most conflict-ridden and certainly the most chaotic political trial in US history. The timing and relevance couldn’t be more extremely relevant than today. 

    The cast did great. I like the film’s splicing of the fictionalized-telling of the riots with…

  • Black Swan

    Black Swan

    ★★★★

    If there’s Whiplash for men, there’s also Black Swan for women. In Whiplash, you’ll see a man beat the crap out of his drum, whereas in Black Swan you’ll witness a ballerina dancing close to the hellish fire of perfection. 

    I see Nina constantly balancing on the verge of madness. I can feel her internal demons, and she didn’t need to force drill into her role for me to feel it’s there. Mila Kunis also gave a superb performance here.…

  • The Silence of the Lambs

    The Silence of the Lambs

    ★★★★

    Sssshhh. silence please, letterboxd friends. I’m writing a letter to Lecter.

    Dear Lecter,


    You are a cunning evil persona; that devious, ultra sharp intellect, calm and collected, laser eye projection - looks that could seemingly deform metals and crush bricks with petrifying extraordinary human power. 


    My fear of you was intensified by your isolation cell’s design: something about that super-thick glass that separates you, the lighting, the dark shadows, chilly stonewalls, and the thick bars.


    The overall visual effects gave…
