    The Other Lamb

    ★★★★

    halloween day 17

    following in the footsteps of the “the Witch” and “the Nightingale”, “the Other Lamb” follows a young girl who is blossoming into adulthood in the midst of a cult, wherein, femininity is both the most sacred and secular part of the religion. interesting in how double ended the topic of womanhood is, that is to say it is both holy and unholy in ways with our twisted cult leader admonishing and belittling his “flock” for everything they do, seemingly at a whim.

    Ad Astra

    ★★★★

    “Dad Astra” is very much a dad film, in all senses of the phrase. it’s interesting dip into Conrad’s famous “Heart of Darkness” and Coppola’s “Apocalypse Now” are two works of art that immediately come into mind, particularly after the second act ends, yet the film never fully commits to this idea, and instead feels akin to recent films like “Gravity”, “the Martian”, and “Interstellar”, visually gorgeous but thematically a bit daft.
