  • Breaking Fast

    Breaking Fast

    ★★★★

    so grateful for the existance of this fun romcom centreing on a gay muslim man during ramadan. mo's family is accepting of his sexuality, and he's able to confidently defend his faith to the gay community and vice versa. but past that novelty, what makes this movie great is that mo’s utopic relationship to his faith/family/sexuality is never treated as normal; contrasted with the lives of his fellow gay muslim friends who are not as blessed. the dinner table debate…

  • Mortal Kombat

    Mortal Kombat

    ★★★★

    VERY rarely is a movie as fun, stupid and insane as it needs to be. zero questions are asked, all answers are ungraciously shoved at us, everything is expedited just to get us to the next round of violence as soon as possible. which is what we all came for! as a martial arts film it's an absolute mess riddled with questionable editing choices, but for me the gore, effects, and sheer SKILL of these actors make up for it.…

    May the Devil Take You Too

    ★★

    this would have been way better if they spent as much money on makeup as they did the first time round.

    drax isn't even a supernatural being in this. he's just tall

  • The Man Who Sold His Skin

    The Man Who Sold His Skin

    ★★★★★

    bombsite shrapnel jigsawed together in a glass case. oil paintings of shipwrecks and massacres. black and white photographs of starving children. in the man who sold his skin, kaouther ben hania satires the west's artistic commodification of the global south's suffering by escalating it to the highest level. with a surprisingly humorous script, she manages to present themes of exploitation, white saviourism, and performative activism without ever victimising her protagonist. white audiences will complain about the narrative's positivity, declaring it…

  • Rūrangi

    Rūrangi

    ★★★★½

    for us. by us. rūrangi is a beautiful story about disconnection — from gender, from culture, from grief, from home — intensely emotional, but isn't cruel in the slightest. i cried at several points but it was mostly from happiness, or my awe at the delicacy and nuance we see as caz restores his relationships, reconnecting in the way he was always meant to. this film is so full of love.

  • The World to Come

    The World to Come

    ★★

    the way the whole theatre (of lesbians) recoiled when the words "produced by casey affleck" came up on screen

  • No Hard Feelings

    No Hard Feelings

    ★★★★½

    there's a relatable agony, watching these characters insist on their place in the world with such desperation. this film is so careful and so caring... in love with the writing and how precisely it raises all these issues with little exposition. it just breathes through you.

  • The Night Comes for Us

    The Night Comes for Us

    ★★★★

    so reductive and condescending when people say this movie is "mindlessly violent" 🙄🙄🙄 it's also mindlessly gay
