    Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness

    ★★½

    We’re twenty-eight (!) films into the Marvel Cinematic Universe, and with the inclusion of the Disney+ miniseries, we’re well above 30 entries into the expansive universe. For the first time ever, one of their films actually has a cinematic style thanks to Sam Raimi. The camera tilts, pops, zooms, crashes, whirs, splits, plummets, and soars all over this world in a welcome effort. It is so defiant of the franchise’s norms and bland visual style, that when characters weren’t talking…

    Shadows and Scars

    “I am the shadows.”

    It’s been a long time coming for Matt Reeves’ The Batman. An entry in the Batman legacy distant from the DCEU, with sights set on establishing a secular universe of its own. Starring Robert Pattinson, Zoë Kravitz, Paul Dano, and Jeffrey Wright, The Batman is engulfed in the towering gothic architecture of Gotham City to explore Bruce Wayne and Batman in a furiously passionate, politically charged noir. It may have a few chinks…

    Boxcar Bertha

    ★½

    Unbearably difficult to endure. There is a crucifixion so I guess that means Scorsese directed it, but it is tiring and deeply uninteresting. The end is pretty decent but it doesn’t feel like it earns any of it.

    Who's That Knocking at My Door

    ★★★★

    Effective and signature. Every flourish and accent to his work is prevalent. Centralized chaos, sex-cess, and religious deconstruction. A debut feature no one else could make. An entire career manifested in 90 minutes.

    You can feel the imprint of Cassavetes’ Shadows all over this.

    Snow Steam Iron

    ★★★★½

    If Denis Villeneuve wasn't the best film-maker working today, Zack Snyder would have the best shot selection in all of Hollywood. This guy shot this movie on an iPhone and it looks better than most movies released on a budget 1,000 times the price of an iPhone X! Snow Steam Iron is a firm reminder that Snyder is one of the purest Hollywood visionaries working today. 

    In Snow Steam Iron we see a corrupt system in the snow laced streets of New…

    Boyhood

    ★★★★½

    Quite possibly the most ambitious film of 2014, Richard Linklater's, 'Boyhood' is a stunning work of art and one of cinema's finest achievements. This film is shot over 12 years of time from the years 2002-2014, following a boy by the name of Mason (played by Ellar Coltrane) throughout this time span.

    To be quite honest, I don't think I've ever resonated with a film more in my entire life. Following this boy growing up was absolutely incredible to watch,…
