    Before Sunrise

    ★★★★★

    This review may contain spoilers. I can handle the truth.

    Quite literally the most I would aspire to do in a blossoming relationship is to walk, and converse. To me, understanding someone's individual strengths, tenancies, sense of humour, past and passions is something so vital to human connection. Before Sunrise communicates these ideas through the two titulars, who spend their time with each other, knowing that they have an entire day ahead of them, where so much can happen. The idea of culminating two ideas of adventure together, such as…

    ★★★★★

    Not so long ago, I watched another film about the strange yet violent relationship between a mother and her son, it's called the Hillbilly Elegy. Whilst that film's visuals and parallels to previous scenes (in order to convey a message) felt on the nose and predictable, Mommy's imagery feels genuine, raw, and whenever the film utilises the classic parallel technique which mirrors another scene, it feels a lot more subtle and less cringe worthy, using carefully woven motifs, rather than…

    This wasn't funny.

    So holy shit, that was "Funny Games", which I could possibly call one of the most demented things I have ever seen. My response to this film isn't uncommon at all of course.

    I truly adore just how smooth the pacing is here, not afraid to be slow. When the conflict begins, it's genuinely one of the most terrifying things ever. I appreciate that the film is also a commentary on the desensitisation of the world when…

    When a film is this good, it genuinely makes me want to get up and make something of my own.

    ★★★★½

    CHARLIE KAUFMAN YOU ABSOLUTE GENUIS 
    a film so unsettling, so thought provoking, with powering literature and a sense of hidden romance. This is the kind of film I want to see. Not exactly your every day film. I literally cannot compare this to anything. My praise for the utilization for the concept of time knows absolutely no bound. And look, whatever rating this film gets isn’t exactly solidified or inherent, because this is a very challenging film. It’s final act…

    TEN-et. Haha. 
    I loved this film, it pretty much gave me everything I expected, and despite the fact I didn’t understand too much, I didn’t actually want to. Nolan films are a ride, yet there are so many layers which the human mind couldn’t even touch.

    Now to get a little in depth into what I loved (without spoilers):
    The true strength of this film in my opinion was its story drive, that being the concept of time rupturing. This…
