    The 400 Blows

    ★★★★½

    Gorgeously shot and heartbreakingly beautifully written, The 400 Blows has been at the top of my watchlist for years. Coming of Age is my favorite genre and I love a good French film. I’m listening to the score as I write this and it’s just so well done. I truly loved this movie.

    The Darjeeling Limited

    ★★★★½

    I haven’t seen a movie for an entire week! I’m pretty sure this is the longest I’ve gone without seeing a film since 2015. Well, I’m glad I watched this because I was completely blown away.

    I’ve loved every Wes Anderson film I’ve seen up to this point so I’m not surprised by how much I enjoyed The Darjeeling Limited. However, I did have some lower expectations as most people I’ve talked to about Anderson’s work tend to say this…
