    Curiosa

    ★½

    I only watched curiosa because Noémie Merlant from 'portrait of a lady on fire' is the lead actress. I thought she was brilliant in Céline Sciamma's film, but she is not good here. All of the acting was actually pretty laughable, everyone was trying way too hard and the performances ended up unintentionally funny.

    Joker

    ★★½

    I study psychology and for whatever reason my teacher (or professor depending on where you're from) thought it was a good idea to do an analysis of joker. She could have picked any film there are so many amazing character studies. The reason joker is so bad for psychological analysis is because it's so exaggerated and unrealistic, but it acts like it isn't. Joker wants to be taken seriously so badly that makes it feel desperate.

    I think before I…
