  • Hustlers

    Hustlers

    ★★★★

    Witty, ballsy, and gritty, Hustlers profoundly sees how women take care of each other to survive a post-2008 world. This, by far, is the top of the finest 2019 you must not miss. (4/4)

  • Parasite

    Parasite

    ★★★★

    Angry Bong Joon-ho illustrate his restlessness towards social gap with a thought-provoking, family tragicomedy that does not look like anything you’ve seen before. It’s funny, ironic and thrilling deeply at the same breath. (4/4)

  • The Laundromat

    The Laundromat

    ★★½

    While Soderbergh handles The Big Short-esque enticing direction adeptly, The Laundromat lacks the engaging story which makes the other movie an exhilarating lecture. (2.5/4)

  • Marriage Story

    Marriage Story

    ★★★½

    Ranked amongst Noah Baumbach’s most heartfelt work, Marriage Story is a tour de ego—a portrayal of divorce which is honest and painful at the same time. (3.5/4)

  • Marlina the Murderer in Four Acts

    Marlina the Murderer in Four Acts

    ★★★★★

    It's a grace to Indonesian cinema and, more, to women's cinema.
    Mind your expectation.

    It's a story of Marlina the Murderer told in 4 acts.
    Not of Marlina, the murderer who commits 4 acts of killing.

  • Hereditary

    Hereditary

    ★★★★★

    Witty is the new face of horror. Yet, Hereditary⁠⁠ is much more than that. It’s a mindfuck, disturbing mental challenge led by Toni Collette’s terrific performance and Ari Aster’s bone-chilling direction.

    The final 10-15 minutes were completely insane. Fuck.
