  • Irreversible

    Irreversible

    ★★★★★

    A revenge tale told in reverse, Irreversible is structured in an incredibly effective and planned out manner. While each scene is played in reverse chronological order, the film still cleverly pulls off its dizzying and creative camerawork in such a way that it creates a very fluid motion between scenes. While it is clear that this film is not shot in one take, the dreamlike nature of the visuals and the audio do a fantastic job at creating such an…

    Ichi the Killer

    ★★★★★

    When I was a teenager, 'Ichi the Killer' was my bread and butter. I had never seen anything like it at all, and I loved just how bizarre, excessive and gruesome it was and ended up developing a keen interest in director Takashi Miike, despite only pushing this keen interest toward films such as 'Audition' and 'Imprint' until recently. Though at the time, I found this film extremely unique and entertaining, I never really saw any semblance of meaning or…

    ★★½

    I really struggled to make heads or tails of this one for a sizeable chunk of its runtime. Throughout, the set design, lighting and staging are absolutely impeccable, crafting some truly memorable and breath-taking visuals, and the key narrative concepts in play are endlessly fascinating. Where this film utterly falls apart for me however, is its complete tonal confusion. Throughout much of the first half, the editing could both…

    Mulholland Drive

    ★★★★½

    The brilliant thing about David Lynch films is that for the majority of their run-time, I am usually very confused... but then there comes a point where I have an epiphany, and just enough becomes clear where I feel as though I get it, while enough ambiguity remains to keep me thinking for days after, discovering new things the more I mull it over, and engaging me to eventually return for another viewing. In the case of Mulholland Drive, I…

  • Big Trouble in Little China

    Big Trouble in Little China

    ★★★★½

    I hate the phrases millennials come up with. I hate when they say that something "slaps" or that they "Stan" something. Especially when they say they "Stan" something. This came about to mean when you obsess over something, and originated from the song 'Stan' by Eminem, a song which had any of these people listened to would realise that saying they "Stan" something isn't something they should take pride in, but something they should be deeply embarrassed about. I also…
