    Long live the new flesh. And that flesh is Brandon Cronenberg who nails the 80’s vibes his father achieved with some of this work. But at the same time Brandon creates something fresh and modern.

    Felt like a longer and more artistic Black Mirror episode. Really liked the colors and trippy vibes the possession/battle of the minds scenes had. Solid acting all around. And of course Sean Bean continues the tradition of him getting absolutely crushed on screen.

    I think this is my favorite film of 2020.

    Very human and really makes you want to live. Told with a lot of heart and empathy. A look into the lives of people whose story aren’t told too much. We might not share all their struggles but we can relate to their grief and pain as human beings.

    Chloe Zhao’s tender direction with a great performance by Frances McDormand makes this special. Frances doesn’t just play Fern but becomes her. The beautiful landscapes and sweeping score are some of the other highlights.

    Life really is like a highway. See you down the road.

    ★★★★½

    “FUCK THE SPACE”

    This was pretty heartbreaking. I’ve never been married but I could relate as a kid who saw his parents fight a lot and the threat of divorce around the corner. Maybe something a lot of our generation can relate too. Raw and very human, the writing in this was superb. Scarlett was great but man did Adam Driver kill it. Very excited for his future roles. Great cast overall including Laura Dern and Ray Liotta with fun supporting roles.

    Definitely one of my favorites this year, kind of a modern Kramer vs Kramer which I also recommend watching if you haven’t.

    ★★★★½

    Wow at loss of words right now. What a powerful portrayal of income inequality which is a theme anyone can relate too no matter where you live. 

    It goes overlooked because it’s so obvious, but it’s crazy the power money has and how it runs everything. Poverty becomes a stench that follows you no matter where you go. This smell you can’t escape. This pursuit to become wealthy so you can provide for your family becomes a burden, almost a heavy rock clinging too you at all times. 

    Bong Joon-Ho’s topical drama is definitely one of the best movies of 2019.
