    "What went we out into this wilderness to find? Leaving our country, kindred, our fathers houses? We have travailed a vast ocean. For what? For what?"

    From its opening seconds, The Witch captures the viewer and doesn't let you go until the very end. Every element is used to establish a sense of dread and tension seldom seen in horror movies. While it does give you time to breathe in between, there are certain moments that will not leave your…

    "It's all a mess. The one out there... The one in here... the one that's coming."

    I don't even know where to begin. This film is huge. Its rich political subtext about revolutions and uprisings combined with its wonderful exploration of so many different themes make for a great film to revisit every so often (this may or may not be my seventh time).

    And those final ~20 minutes... cinema peaked right then and…

    Been thinking about whether I should log this one or not, I didn't technically "watch it", but I read the screenplay while listening to the soundtrack.
    The main reason why I'm doing it is because reading the script felt like such a cinematic experience, many visual aspects (one-takes, aspect ratio changes etc.) were described perfectly in the text, making this a visceral, one of a kind reading experience.
    The other reason is that I loved this so much and I…
