    The Umbrellas of Cherbourg

    ★★★★½

    "I'll name our daughter Francoise."

    God, now I know why it's called "The Umbrellas of Cherbourg". My emotions have run through the emotions of sadness, anger and then acceptance in the span of its 91-minute runtime. Having experienced being in love and then going through a spiral of near-breakups, huge arguments, the second wind that rejuvenated the relationship, and then the surprise break-up. I understand the hardships of being in a relationship. From spending every second of every moment with…

    Shoplifters

    ★★★★½

    "...dad."

    A somber look into the lives of a "family" stricken by poverty who save a little girl from an abusive household. Kore-eda again provides the goods with a sweet, tender but sorrow look into the dynamics of a family. A powerful performance from Sakura Ando hits the feels with her portrayal of the mother figure that shows the little girl what true love is in a family. Moved on the verge of tears that I held back as Kore-eda…

    A Simple Favor

    ★★★★

    A Simple Favor plays on the genres of crime thrillers with many twists and turns throughout the viewing. Much akin to Gone Girl but…

  • Rear Window

    Rear Window

    ★★★★★

    Rear Windows is my first viewing of an Alfred Hitchcock film, and it was a thrilling experience to watch it for the first time. I don't tend to watch any movies before 1990, I don't know why. The oldest movie I watched before Rear Windows was the 1976 film Rocky.

    I watched this at night by myself and I'm gonna be honest, it had me a bit scared. Imagining that someone is watching me through my window or behind me…
