  • Mommy

    Mommy

    ★★★★★

    This write-up is far from the best thing I've written. Continue reading if you please. I kind of want to apologize in advance.

    Every person has their own fair share of flaws. What I'm talking about in this review hasn't all that much to do with the plot of Mommy. But I think that if anything, films should be able to get your thoughts to flourish. Every time I've been broke, every time I've felt down during the last year,…

    ★★★★

    Xavier Dolan’s directorial debut I Killed My Mother is a fascinating character study of a 16-year old teenage boy and the relationship between him and his mother. This description really don’t make the film any real justice, so I’ll just get into the film and how it is as a whole.

    Anne Dorval and Xavier Dolan’s on-screen chemistry is beautifully realized and it never ever feels staged or unrealistic. There’s an authenticity to everything they say and everything they do…
