• Sicario

    Sicario

    ★★★★

    Villeneuve's Sicario has all the makings of a traditional blockbuster. An established, star-studded cast playing in a world of covert operations and tactical gear. Where it differs is the unique perspective with which the story unfolds, Kate isn't a typical action protagonist as much as she is a surrogate for our blind eyes, guiding us through the harsh realities we willingly overlook at times. ⁣

    "Nothing will make sense to your American ears, and you will doubt everything that…

  • Miller's Crossing

    Miller's Crossing

    ★★★★

    The Coens really can't do no wrong, can they?⁣

    A true love letter to the iconic noir films, filled with the expected suave suit at the center of it all, battling between loyalty and love for the femme fatale. Where the Coens differ and derive something truly unique from the long passed genre is the subtle irony at the core of this film. From a career criminal that speaks of ethics to the ridiculously over the top shoot-outs breaking any…

  • Love Letter

    Love Letter

    ★★★★

    There's a comfort in knowing that we linger on in the memories of those our lives were intertwined with long after we leave. Like unspoken feelings that hide between the words of love letters we chose to write, but more importantly, the ones we chose not.

  • Drive My Car

    Drive My Car

    ★★★★

    We found some sense of serene catharsis surrounded by the constant hum of the road as it drove us through the past, allowing us only to gaze out of the windows and ponder at it all.

  • The Worst Person in the World

    The Worst Person in the World

    ★★★★

    A gorgeous mess of emotions, choices, honesty and brevity, much like real life. I'm sure we all see a little bit of ourselves in Julie, after all, we are the worst person in our own little worlds.

    Dune

    "Dreams are messages from the deep"

    The sheer scale of Denis' vision makes the label 'epic' lose all meaning. Words from pages lifted and molded into an intricately crafted universe that seems to live and breathe beyond the screen. All I really know is, the chance to experience such cinema on the silver screen comes a handful of times in this century, so make the most of it!

    Oslo, August 31st

    ★★★★★

    Does it ever get easier?
    Does the world get kinder?
    Will it ever be worth it?

    Clutching at glimpses
    of a more fulfilling future
    that grows distant with
    each breath and fleeting
    thought of self.

    Feel so connected yet far.
    Lost in the vastness of it all.

    It all overwhelms, then decays
    into insignificance.

    An endless struggle.

  • Night and Fog

    Night and Fog

    No amount of adjectives can truly convey the humanitarian atrocities that took place in the darkness of night, under the heavy fog of misguided morality. But where words fall flat, images speak directly to the soul. Man-made ghosts of the past seared onto celluloid.

    Where Resnais sets himself apart are the glimmers of poetry found between the timeless words of warning. These acts were bound to be repeated and are being done so as I write these very words. Though…

  • Five Easy Pieces

    Five Easy Pieces

    ★★★★½

    Five easy pieces from the torn portrait of a man who no longer has any identity beyond a name. Piano notes traded for the drumming of oil wells. The comfort of lavish intellect exchanged for grease stained gloves and cheap beer. Self inflicted freedom and penitentiary.

    There's a hollowness at the center of Jack Nicholson's nihilistic, raging rebellion of a performance, one that completely envelopes the screen in the mere ninety minutes we spend in the mind of the uneasy…

  • Blind Chance

    Blind Chance

    ★★★★

    You will never be as young as you are this very second. The days that have been spent will never be relived. Life is a river that flows only one way. Sure, you may go down a different tributary but you can never oppose the current. But what if you could relive those days? Go down the paths untraveled?

    It's a difficult concept to accept, for how can we know the choices we have made are the best ones? Ah,…
