    It's Such a Beautiful Day

    ★★★★½

    Hadn’t seen this since I was 14, and while I enjoyed it then some of the exceedingly mature subject zipped over my hormone addled teenage head.

    22 isn’t particularly old either I suppose, but it’s old enough to have been hurt a couple of times, to ruminate on ones place in the universe and to contemplate everyone’s eventual and inevitable departure from it. If by 22 you haven’t had at least one existential crisis, consider yourself exceedingly stupid or exceedingly…

    ★★★★½

    Went into this thinking it was gonna be much more of a gore flick; there’s still a handful of nastiness but beyond anything Promising Young Woman is a character study and a fantastic one at that.

    Casandra is completely kickass but simentamously   heartbreaking. The cracks that appear in her mask show something deeply, deeply wounded underneath. This is a difficult film to discuss sans spoilers, but it absolutely deserves a bevy of nominations come awards season. 

    I will confirm…
