• Little Odessa

    Little Odessa

    ★★★½

    A melancholic crime drama about family. A solid debut from Gray. Can’t wait to check out his entire filmography.

  • Killing Them Softly

    Killing Them Softly

    ★★★★½

    Cynical, bleak and darkly humorous, Andrew Dominik’s mob drama set in the backdrop of the 2008 financial crisis is so much more gripping and better than I originally gave it credit. The writing, performances and visuals (Fraser’s best work by far) are top notch but I especially want to point out how fucking good the sound design is. Highly recommend watching it with the best headphones you got. 

    Also, banger soundtrack. Made me fall in love with Petula Clark’s Windmills.

  • Crimes of the Future

    Crimes of the Future

    ★★★½

    David Cronenberg didn’t make a body horror film in two decades, then saw people eating tide pods and decided to make a film where they’re the evolutionary future of the human race. So, thank you tide pod connoisseurs?

  • Turning Red

    Turning Red

    ★★½

    One can debate wether this should’ve gone streaming or theatrical but it does FEEL like it was made to be direct to streaming

    Someone should’ve given them Lester’s number

    Hey, at least Kosinski gave us Top Gun Maverick this year!

  • Chopper

    ★★★½

    All things considered, Mark Chopper might be the most charming and friendly Australian after Steve Irwin

  • To Catch a Thief

    To Catch a Thief

    ★★★½

    I can’t quietly explain it but it has the same vibes as the Connery era Bond films. So yeah, I enjoyed it!

  • The Ice Storm

    The Ice Storm

    ★★★★½

    This is the white suburban family drama that the Academy thinks American Beauty is. Honestly, just makes me wanna binge Lee’s entire filmography now.

  • Company Limited

    Company Limited

    ★★★★

    A movie about a guy becoming gross.

    The top review of the film complains about the ending being abrupt but if you watch the film carefully there’s a line towards the beginning that shows why that is the case and why it is so effective. 

    Love how Ray makes subtle yet stinging social commentary of 70s political scenario and capitalism in Calcutta using everyday characters.

  • All About Eve

    All About Eve

    ★★★★★

    “You can always put that award where your heart ought to be”


    Mank’s brother made such a brilliant film, we should get Mank 2 about this guy now.

  • The Heartbreak Kid

    The Heartbreak Kid

    ★★★★½

    Imagine being married to a beautiful, fun wife who adores you and then breaking it up five days into the marriage over the dumbest reasons. Some people don’t deserve love.  


    I would kill to get married to someone like Lila
