    Good Morning

    ★★★★½

    Good Morning reminded me of the simple joy of being alive in a space with people you love. Nothing lasts forever, however dramatic or fantastic, and that ephemerality is beautiful in it's fleeting moments.

    The characters feel so real that I felt like all of them were a part of me; if not now then as a memory. Especially the boys. Just the natural way the little brother follows his big brother around (despite him not necessarily being the exemplification…

    Landscape in the Mist

    ★★★★★

    This film is achingly captivating.

    It empathises with my inner state of being on so many levels. The idea of chasing after a lost dream with no end, blind to anything of the contrary. As long as the journey continues the journey cannot fail. A sense of belonging wherever one lands, without ever feeling at home.

    As a Greek who grew up in England, I've always felt like I'm being pulled in many directions at once; kept In place only by the opposing forces. Landscape in the Wind is that feeling.

    What a mess.

    Winterbottom has so much to say he gets buried in his own basket of dirty socks. The style fluctuates violently from scene to scene. One minute we are in 24 Hour Party People land where "cool" wankers have their way with the world, the next minute we're in the middle of a refugee crisis. Make up your mind! The effect of every part diminishes the others, brewing the weakest of soups.

    His Royal Greediness is a suffer…

    After Love

    ★★★

    You can only know what they show you. Love has no proof, only belief in what you are presented with. After Love is a lesson about the truth of death, which is another way of saying the period following love.

    We see it from a number of different perspectives, in the 3 leads. Solomon's was the most affecting for me (probably something to do with me being a boy with a dad). His love manifested as hope, providing him with…

    Sound of Metal

    ★★★★½

    Addicted to love. Addicted to control. Addicted to sound.

    Addicted to the distraction of all these things, keeping us from ourselves, and the feelings that rise to the top of the bowl when everything else is eliminated from the minds soup. We watch Ruben struggle to accept his new reality with every fibre of his (incredibly sexy) being. He is barred from his self-designated place in the world, where he feels a significance beyond his flesh. Like an audial chameleon,…

  • Titane

    Titane

    ★★★★

    There is a point in this film where Vincent see Adrien for what she is, and says "I don't care what you are, you are my son". This moment made me understand and come to terms with the discomfort I had been feeling throughout the film. We can all relate to the concept of being made to feel unbelonging by the society that spawned us. Her rejection from the human race is evident in every granule of the film, from…
