    Walkabout

    ★★★★½

    The first thing you'll notice is the crosscutting between the natural world and the modern world. This juxtaposition is jarring, yet seamless in how it captures how at odds these worlds are and how strange it is that these two worlds can exist at the same time in essentially the same place.

    It's also a nice coming of age story and somewhat of an adventure film, with amazing shots of the Australian outback. It was very easy to slip into the rhythm of the movie and just experience the journey and the ideas being displayed.

    Fallen Angels

    ★★★★

    Of all of Wong Kar-Wai's movies, this one feels the most fractured, the messiest. It's hard to pinpoint moments and remember which order they came in, and which character relates to who. But that might be part of the charm, and how everything feels like a big stirpot of emotional outbursts and kinetic energy. Images whir by, soundtracked to a mishmash of global music, and you remember how the movie makes you feel, and when it's done, it feels like there's a whole world left to explore. But I guess that's what his other movies are for.

    The Perks of Being a Wallflower

    ★★★★★

    I first read The Perks of Being a Wallflower when I was 14, in my final year of middle school, and I became a complete and utter dweeb about it. I started gifting the book to all my friends for their birthdays. I would make a playlist of the mixtape from the book and give it to girls I liked. I started keeping a journal that detailed my thoughts ranging from small daily annoyances to my ever changing life philosophies…

    Annihilation

    ★★★½

    A journey into the unexplained, full of ethereal images and horrifying encounters. It's untethered from any sort of narrative momentum, and that helps with the mood, which lasts from beginning to end.

    This kinda caught me off guard, as I was expecting something less mysterious, but we got something more difficult and worth revisiting later. I feel like the mysteries and wonder will grow with more viewings.
