"Why'd y'spill yer beans?"
"The Lighthouse" is a brilliant claustrophobic nightmare led by magnificent performances from the two leads.
Set in the late 19th century on a isolated island, a young drifter named Winslow (Robert Pattison) takes on a job as an apprentice for the old lighthouse keeper Thomas Wake (Willem Dafoe). The work is hard labor and Winslow is tough, barking orders and making Winslow feel like a prisoner.
Director Robert Eggers and cinematographer Jarin Blaschke works to create…
Weathering with You is a riveting and beautiful fantasy romance backdropped by catastrophic climate change.
The film is follows 16-year-old Hodaka Morishima, a runaway fending for himself in the chaotic metropolis of Tokyo where it hasn’t stopped raining for an indefinite period of time. In a fast-food restaurant, teenage waitress Hina gives the starving Hodaka a free burger, and two patches of red flush across his cheeks endearingly. It turns out that Hina is a “sun girl” and she can…
A visually stunning, narratively convoluted experience that leaves the viewer heartbroken yet hopeful.
"Weathering with You" is ultimately a story about two young people with their whole lives ahead of them, navigating their way through life and yearning the things we all take for granted.
Makoto Shinkai has created another modern fable and one of the best animated feature films ever made.
"Memories of Murder" is a unusual and well crafted hybrid.
A docudrama, a existential and noirish thriller with some dark comedy and a touch of social commentary. Joon-ho Bong's let's the viewer get to know the often hateful and cruel cops, and ultimately they feel human and real. "Memories of Murder" focuses on the emotional toll dealing with a case like this has on the detectives. Kang-ho Song gives us a solid and believable performance as the main protagonist.
If you liked "Parasite", this is definitely worth seeking out.
Parabellum, just like it's two predecessors, is some of the greatest action you'll ever see. The violence is raw, gritty and like a beautiful symphony at the same time. Chapter 3 raises the stakes with sword fights on motorcycles and gunfights on horseback. And at the center of all this relentless mayhem is Keanu Reeves, in the role he was born to play.
Sci-fi Western that doesn't need a Marvel movie's worth of CGI to make its point.
It feels like the debuting directors spent years developing the depressing and believable world the movie takes place in.
Gritty and stylish cinematography with a fitting soundtrack adds further to the world-building; this is a movie that nails the atmosphere.
Don't miss this gem, "Prospect" deserves to find a cult audience.
