    Ace in the Hole

    ★★★★

    My 5th Billy Wilder film and he has yet to disappoint! Apparently, Ace in the Hole was an abysmal box office failure and paramount lost tons of money because of it. I think I can make a safe assumption and say it might’ve been because of how drenched in dark cynicism it is. Wilder was relentless is portraying the dark realities of manufactured sensationalism that motivates journalists and the media. It’s a film that pulls no punches in showcasing not…

    PIG is a film that I knew nothing about going into it, except for the fact that it starred the legend himself Nic Cage, and it absolutely blew me away. What a beautiful, sincere, honest and human film this was. I don’t wanna give too much away but it’s a film that reminds us how love and identity is deeply rooted to simple things like food and nature. Please seek this film out if you can. It’s an incredibly impressive directorial debut from Michael Sarnoski. 9/10
