    This is real dark for Itami but it’s as engaging as all his other work. Kept on thinking about director and star couples and how they result in incredible movies and this is sort of Itami and Miyamoto's Opening Night.

This film hits its dramatic beats really well and there are so many moments where Miyamoto absolutely kills. Definitely worth checking out!!

    The infamous interrogation scene is so iconic and represents what I love most about the movie: it’s luscious, edgy, and unapologetically sexy. Can’t wait for Benedetta.

    The past few days I have been obsessed with Japanese Breakfast's new record Jubilee and one of the lyrics off of the album came back to me while watching this movie: "When the world divides into two people
    Those who have felt pain and those who have yet to."

    Inside Llewyn Davis is such a beautiful film. Filled with incredible musical performances and great scenes within the film's episodic narrative.

    What stays constant throughout the film is Llewyn's mood and…
