    I think loneliness is the worst feeling you can have. Especially because it feeds off and reacts to everything else going on in your mind. It's even worse when nothing seems to make that feeling go away. Waking up and going through the motions because you have to. Day in, day out, it's always the same. Even when you come home and lay down next to the person you love, that sense of loneliness never really goes away. When you're…

    True Mothers

    ★★★½

    A beautiful portrait about adoption and...marriage, Naomi Kawase centres around two mothers and gives us different timelines which are gracefully woven together. Quiet and full of love, this film truly is heartwarming.


    Yang saya suka dari film ini adalah tidak seperti kasus mandul kebanyakan, yang kebanyakan dialami si istri, disini si suami yang mandul. Kerennya si istri tidak mau cerai dan membantu suaminya untuk percaya diri lagi. Padahal seperti yang kita tahu, tekanan untuk punya anak sendiri lebih besar ke istri daripada suami, biasanya. Dia bisa saja mencari yang lain agar bisa punya anak, tapi dia memilih untuk tetap bersama suaminya.

    A Sun

    ★★★★½

    Grounded and naturalistic in its depiction of family, grief, loss, regret, and growth. A Sun is a film of quiet emotional power and a cautionary tale of what can happen when you fail to consider the needs of others before your own. It’s a film about empathy and a reminder that language is not our first language, it’s what we don’t say and how we listen when nobody else is speaking, that defines how we know someone.

    One Cut of the Dead

    ★★★★½

    Definitely one of the funniest films of the year and is one of my favourites. There is a point in the movie where the laughs are coming so fast and hard that I could barely breathe. Best zombie film of the year, best comedy of the year, best feel-good film and best film about films.

    And yash, I appreciated the level of detail and craft in One Cut of the Dead. It's just fucking briliant.
