    For years, Hollywood has portrayed Native Americans as savages and enemies in movies, television, and media (cowboys vs. indians) as they to rewrite history and justify the mistreatment of Native Americans by white America. Marlon Brando refusing to accept the Oscar for Best Actor in The Godfather is one of the few times where someone in mainstream has ever stood up for the long forsaken culture in any kind of meaningful way. Needless to say, this is an extremely important…

    An explosive and extraordinary epic. I saw this in an IMAX theater and it was an experience like none other. Everything about the visuals were stunning and the vibrating sound effects were mind blowing. Some great technical scenes with the bomb, quantum physics, and dream-like sequences.

    It’s the performances from an all star cast that really make this a stand out. Fast paced, heavily loaded, and thought provoking dialogue make this 3 hour film fly by. Cillian Murphy is brilliant…

    ★★★★

    Went into this completely blind so I had no idea this would end up being one of the most uncomfortable and unsettling movies I’ve ever watched. It’s a brutally realistic representation of how childhood abuse permanently affects us and the extreme ways we learn to cope and suppress these experiences as life goes on. I was conflicted about it at first as it is so explicit in the horrific trauma so many people go through but it’s such an emotionally powerful work of art that I can’t help but respect its important messaging.

    ★★★½

    A psychologically intense and emotionally complex thriller of tormented twins portrayed by the highlight of this disturbing true story, Jeremy Irons, in separate but equally brilliant dual roles.

    Poor Things

    ★★★★½

    A sexually explicit spiritual awakening and liberating exploration of one woman’s literal rebirth brilliantly written as a genre-bending coming of age social satire immersed in a gorgeous absurdist world created by one of the most distinctive directors we have today. Emma Stone proves to be the best actress of her generation by going further than she or anyone else has gone before in this truly crowning achievement that’s sure to be dissected, imitated, and appreciated for years to come.

    ★★★★

    Unlike anything else in his filmography, David Lynch’s straightforward sentimental cross country adventure based on a true story is a bittersweet examination of life at an elder age. The Midwestern landscape combined with soft heartfelt music and an Oscar-worthy performance from Richard Farnsworth makes this an unforgettable journey that’s sure to pull at your heartstrings. This gentle, genius, and genuinely brilliant ride is an outlier in the works of such a dark and demented director but it’s easily one of his strongest, simplest, and most mature pieces of art that’s sure to appease everyone of all ages.
