    hello everyone, i’m officially back up and running!

    these last couple months i’ve been inactive due to private familial affairs that i don’t have the vigour to openly chatter or discuss about. because of these issues, i unfortunately spiralled into a deep depression and started repeating damaging and self-destructive vices i’m very disconsolate and ashamed about. i’m so very grateful for all the love and support i’ve received by the time i got back and i thank each and everyone…

    what am i supposed to say?

    seriously, what am i supposed to write?

    this is the film most important to me, the film that made me understand the formidable medium that is cinema. this is one of few films that left me with genuine and unadulterated exhaustion. 

    it’s a strenuous, stressful optical extravaganza of galactical scope. it gently lays you down, then forcefully and throbbingly cuts your chest open, rips your heart out, and stomps on it repeatedly. although by…

    The Thin Red Line

    ★★★

    barely topping out Pixar’s new sci-di adventure film, ‘Lightyear’, ‘The Thin Red Line’ is an evocatively inutile mess. a never-ending, radically flawed two-hours-and-fifty minutes, that i could not be more disappointed about.

    i’m aware of the fact that i’ve just compared ratings between Terrence Malick’s third feature and Pixar’s new widespread embarrassment, but let me explain.
