Heard so much buzz about this film from Sundance. Despite all that buzz, it still blew me away. Yes it’s a super white bread suburban flick but that doesn’t stop it from being one of the most compelling and endearing experiences I’ve had all year. The young inspiring Cooper Raiff, wrote, directed and starred in this film and somehow produces a surprisingly mature film that tackles surprisingly mature themes. It’s about a lot of things but ultimately it’s a film…
A divisive folk horror to come out of Sundance that I found to be an interesting and engaging existential piece. People have been saying it’s Malick-esque and they’re 100% right. The aesthetic style, the narration, the larger than life atmosphere and the musical score all feel malick inspired. But it is effective nevertheless. It’s just unfortunately a film that has its hick ups along the way in regards to its use of score, some bad use of effects and a repetitive structure. I still admire this film and enjoyed watching it. Might even buy the blu ray. Beautiful looking film as well.

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

I unfortunately was quite disappointed with my experience watching this movie because I didn’t expect it to run into so many of the cliches and Hollywood issues that we see in all of the other comic book movies. The romance was corny and hard to watch. The acting felt awkwardly directed,…
