    Soul

    ★★★★½

    "You can't crush a soul here. That's what life on Earth is for."

    Another brilliant Pixar animation from the maker of "Up", "Inside Out" and "Monsters, Inc."

    Soul is a movie about learning to feel & live the life we have, understanding its uncertainty, yet precious & most beautiful part of it...to live simply every minute of it, "zone out" & finding happiness in small things around us; as there is more to life than running after things that give us the tag of "Success" & "Failure".

    It's an emotionally complex, thought-provoking moral to see played out on screen. Surely one of the best films of the year.

    ★★

    This review may contain spoilers. I can handle the truth.

    The best part of the movie is Trevor's goodbye & WW flying scenes. The cast was good too, they delivered their performances as required. But the main issue about the movie is the story would fit for an episode or 2 in a WW TV series by the CW!...specially when the major plot device is "Wish Stone"!!
    I couldn't believe that they would pick such a lame thing for a WW sequel. What a letdown!

    Not sure but may be my dissatisfaction also triggered by THE BOYS (Season 2) that I have just finished watching lately and absolutely loved it!

    ★★★★½

    An ultimate film about the physical creation of Art and a struggling, yet deeply profound relationship between a reclusive great artist & his muse. Through static camera & long takes, the French New Wave king, Rivette captures an artist's obsession for rediscovering the truth in his art, where nudity comes gracefully with essence and become more about sensuality than sexuality.

    Kudos to the lead casts for bringing their A-game and made this one hell of a 'Test Match Cricket' of a cinema a heart-warming treat to watch :D

  • The Lighthouse

    The Lighthouse

    ★★★★½

    Ingmar Bergman often portrayed the characters in his films with deep psychological turmoil where sometime they developed their own isolation and insecurities over hidden guilt, unseen terror or a darkest past. The characters confronted moments to deal with their own terms & interpretation of sexuality, crisis in power struggle and their ultimate submission into the paradox of life itself.
    And I think, in this 21st century we are quite lucky to have a filmmaker like Robert Eggers who have gracefully embodied…
