    The Graduate

    ★★★★★

    it’s crazy to think that when i first watched the film, i was maybe 17 or 18 and about to graduate high school. now i’m the same age as benjamin! watching it in high school, i didn’t really relate to ben because i knew where i was going to college and i was pretty excited. flash forward a few years later, i’m one year away from graduating and it’s already weighing heavily on me. i feel like i have an…

    oh La dolce vita, how lovely you are even if you are 3 hours long. divided into different "episodes," the film follows marcello mastroianni as a journalist wondering around rome with an aim at trying to grasp at love, but at the same time he moves around with no set goal. marcello, though he looks like he was sculpted by greek gods, is an insufferable character. and he becomes worse as each episode commences, but there is still something that…

    i love cinema verité for its ability to make me feel like a fly on the wall during moments i would have never experienced otherwise. in this case we’re placed in a room, figuratively and literally, observing the mechanics of bill clinton’s 1992 presidential campaign. it instantly feels like we belong there, as if we were there from the very beginning. political campaigns are great subjects for cinema verité because they’re so chaotic and overwhelming, those feelings shoot right out…

    i will always remember jean-paul belmondo as the most effortlessly cool and chic face of the french new wave. he lit up every moment he was on-screen, an ability not many have. he was one of the greatest to grace the silver screen. it’s going to be strange watching his films and knowing he’s no longer with us because he seemed like such a strong force, one that would’ve stayed with us forever. and he will be, in the form of his iconic films that we will talked about for ages to come. rest in peace bébel, i love you and thank you for everything 🤍
