  • The Meetings of Anna

    The Meetings of Anna

    ★★★★★

    Impasto and sfumato of man runs deep; through the pyramids of her figure, the most natural anchor for judgement. We're all drawn to the human body, it's only natural, and to draw the human body in any environment is the most effective way to understand the vastness of that specific environment, and with context, future environments too. With this understanding, to present a human in any environment is to present a lack of control reinforced by Akerman's filmic rückenfigur, framing…

    Those Dead/Empty: Fleeting skin peeling like minuscule dandruff in my hair with each rubbing motion, Sachi, just like you were living, Mum, only this is peaceful. Poetic conception, crying or killing in his bedroom? Certainly masturbating, to talk without penetration's aid, can you do it? Lived the long, long days, and through the long nights, it was worth suffering to feel nothing. To know the truth, to actually know. (The truth, no matter what it is, isn't that frightening).

    Rhythmic, unspoken conversation... Resigned.

    A Brighter Summer Day

    ★★★★

    Most interesting as a literary critique of traditionalism. Mainland China retreat/flee; Taiwan, there to plant them, Japanese houses to house them, songs-from-the-States-to-escape; so much change so often mentioned in disdain, violence still prevails, still taught as first-resort—You have some nerve, be malleable, not stiff or hard for your Ming: Her. It was my negligence, it happens to us all, please excuse me just this once, or now is all I've got. A lively soul is never stifled by a fart,…

    Godzilla vs. Kong

    Reluctantly I went and I paid to see ‘Godzilla vs. Kong’ in cinemas. I didn’t want to be there but still sat with a furrowed brow and watched respectfully, unlike a large portion of the packed full theatre. Stop clapping, cheering and clamouring during every moment of peace. You’re allowed to enjoy the movie, but don’t ruin it for everyone else.

    Nothing is surprising or interesting. The story goes exactly where you’d expect, the writing is as bad as you’d…
