    Apocalypse Now



    A descent into dehumanisation and madness shaped by war and its connection to humanity and morality. The most detailed and thematically deep war film ever made. Coppola’s finest is the only work to match Conrad’s bleak hypnotism in Heart of Darkness.

    “Everyone gets everything he wants. I wanted a mission, and for my sins they gave me one.”

    From the start of the film, Willard’s breakdown proves he has separated himself from others, or rather the war has.…

  • Aftersun



    Aftersun is a quietly devastating film. Every scene runs with a certain melancholy. Even happy and pure memories are captured in such a subversive manner.

    Calum stares into MiniDV footage of Sophie, he knows that once this trip ends it will be the only way he will be able to see her, years later Sophie stares into the same footage, piecing together and sifting through her memories which are sure to be reduced to abstractions now. Perhaps she is trying…

Two great actors nowhere near the top of their game. A film thats structure constantly bounces between arguing and a romantic, loving moment with nothing bridging the two together. I never thought I’d say something like this but Levinson just doesn’t seem to understand film criticism nor does he understand the…

    The Last Temptation of Christ


    “Death isn’t a door that closes, it opens.”

    The Last Temptation of Christ is unlike any other religious film I’ve seen as it focuses on understanding Jesus as a flawed human with his own temptations and doubts. While I am not a religious person, I am incredibly fascinated by religious cinema and this film has to be a new favourite of mine along with films like The Seventh Seal. Scorsese seems like the only person who could’ve made such a…
