    Mishima: A Life in Four Chapters

    ★★★★★

    Longing for a purpose, a reason, to uphold ideologies that he only understands through their stereotypes. Imperialism as an aesthetic, for the sake of what, times of old that he so desperately earns for, yet has never lived through. Self-exoticism, he is in a lack of better words, a Japanophile, in the same way that all nationalists don’t love their country, but fetishise it. He longs so desperately to do something significant, to create radical social change. It is impossible…

    What Is a Woman?

    Gender is a social construct. It is a phrase that has been oft repeated, and will continue to be repeated until people fucking listen to it. Walsh’s attempts to narrow it down to mere, biological fact is inherently misguided, and it is proven through his contradictions. He describes the role of being a father in the beginning, and that what he has is a wife, 2 sons, and 2 daughters, drawing attention to the fact that these are gendered roles,…

    'There's only one way to resolve a problem involving fame, a technological, global, planification. Electronic brains do many things but don't think about them. And who has electronic brains? Us, the developed people.'

    Destruction, that is all there is. Bullets pierce through flesh to the point that it is numbing, where bodies dropping to the floor are significant for little more than mere spectacle, where nihilism is so imbued into the world that one cannot…

    Freddy Got Fingered

    ★★★★½

    It feels particularly disingenuous to argue that this is good because it is satire; sure, at times it functions like a self-parody, yet that still is not the backbone of Green’s work, and arguing as such is no different then arguing that ‘Scream’ is only a good film because it’s self-aware, when really, the reason it works is that it’s so much more than that, notably, because it succeeds in being a genuinely good version of what it is lampooning.…

    All Too Well: The Short Film

    ½

    A perfume ad for the A24 crowd. Ever since 'Miss Americana' made her relevant again, Swift has been plaguing the film world with her godawful vanity projects that are disguised as reflections from a down to earth woman, when they really only serve the purpose of exaggerating how distanced she really is from everybody else. I will be honest, I cannot stand Swift as a singer, not that she is bad, but I just find any mainstream folk singer inherently…

    The Northman

    ★★½

    Visually stunning, if ultimately inhuman, it is impossible to criticise Eggers’ latest venture for a lack of ambition, this is clearly a work bursting with artistic integrity, yet at the same time, it is also disappointingly safe. Images are bold, pushing the boundaries of what can be captured on film, yet at the same time, they ring hollow, pretences to distract from the pulpier essence of the narrative. ‘The Northman’ is strangely similar to ‘Midsommar,’ not simply as they are…
