    Corpus Christi

    ★★★★★

    SINEGANG Weekly Pick #17
    Recommended by: Gieselle

    “Doesn’t matter where you’re coming from. All that matters is where you’re going.”

    Corpus Christi deals with an unexpectedly complex subject matter. What if your local priest, who is a celebrated pariah and a self-made cult of personality, is secretly fake? This film dives deep into both the personal lies and struggles and the external obligations and challenges that plague our ex-convict and anti-hero Daniel.

    ★★★★★

There's a lot to be enamored by the directions which this film takes, the least of which is that this state of emotional psychopathy displayed thanks to some stellar performances by Ben Affleck and Rosamund Pike. It's a film that manages to pull punches to the extent that David Fincher's auteur sensibilities feel more like background objects than the center of attention. Yet,…

    Never Not Love You

    Hey! Do you hate James Reid's accent? Do you hate how bland his acting comes off whenever he speaks? Do you fucking hate how distressing it feels whenever he says something on-screen? Well, have I got the perfect drinking game for you!

    Moral

    ★★★★½

    True Colors Film Festival

    The beauty of Moral lies in how much it digs into the various experiences of four female friends as they vie or grasp for control of their different personal issues. Here's one woman who questions her role as a housewife, another who has a loose string of relationships, another separated from her husband, and another who will do anything to climb up the music charts. Everything comes together so neatly because MDA efficiently uses that 140-minute…
