    Disguised as an absurdist internet skit, OPAL blossoms into a heartbreaking story of belonging and abuse. Fantastic songs, effectively emotional score, unique animation style, and a story that just gets better with each rewatch. I can’t recommend this enough. My 2nd favorite release of 2020.

    Zoë Kravitz LOVES this one…

    Hard to judge this film. It’s technically flawless, well acted, uniquely and well edited, great cinematography & directing; it really comes down to how you judge film in general to say whether it’s “good” or “bad.” I really enjoyed it and was able to connect to it emotionally. Despite its gratuitous sex, it’s a pretty sad film. It felt like it was inspired by Haneke, specifically Amour, at times.

    Probably one of the best movies ever shot on an iPhone. It doesn’t look amazing, but it’s definitely passable and occasionally was pretty impressive. At times due to the color and camera motion it often looked similar to a Gaspar Noé movie. 

    I also totally believed the performances from the 3 leads and never saw them as actors playing characters. Most of the other cast were convincing too. The pimp was like Sam Rockwell and Kyle Mooney combined lol

    Unintentionally one of the funniest films of the year.

    Pretend That You Love Me

    ★★

    Though pretty good and creative as a no-budget YouTuber-made film, Joel Haver has made it clear that he wants his work to be taken seriously. So I’ll be treating it as a normal movie. 

    For the most part, it doesn’t look great. Shots look different between cuts, color wise, autofocus seems to be on in some shots, many lights blow out the image, etc. It looks like a student film shot on an iPhone. There are definitely some shots that…
