• My Dinner with Andre

    My Dinner with Andre


    This review may contain spoilers. I can handle the truth.

    This film is timeless. Made over forty years ago, the conversation that these two men shared is arguably even more relevant now than it was then. The two men talk about the mechanical and habitual processes as well as the inability to distinguish reality from fantasy that make up modern life, unaware of how these ideas would become multiplied years later with technology, especially smartphones.

    One of the best things about this movie is that nobody is right. Neither Andre…

  • Princess Mononoke

    Princess Mononoke


    Princess Mononoke is a story that follows a boy, Ashitaka, who must learn to “see with eyes unclouded by hate.”

    Perhaps the most interesting aspect to this film is its unique view of morality. Before my third viewing of Princess Mononoke, a friend said that Hayao Miyazaki criticizes manufacturing in this film. And while that might be a subtheme within this movie, I think it overlooks the main point. There isn’t really a rigid good vs. evil in this film.…

  • The Bird with the Crystal Plumage

    The Bird with the Crystal Plumage


    Watched the first 15 minutes of this at a friend's house and although I was asleep, I felt rather captivated and intrigued by this.

    It feels like the bridge between a suspenseful Hitchcock film and the modern day thriller. Very impressive filmmaking and has an interesting plot.

  • Breathless



    Jean-Luc Godard, undoubtedly one of the most influential filmmakers of the 20th century, does not waste a second in Breathless. The quick editing makes it so fast paced, it does not linger on anything for too long.

    Breathless is such a fitting title. For the first 80 minutes of the film you dare not breathe as to not interrupt the characters. And at the ending you dare not breathe for the suspense and immersion that this has led up to.…

  • Unbreakable



    "Unbreakable, what, you thought they'd call me Mr. Glass?" - Kanye West on Through the Wire

    One of the things I noticed the most about M. Night Shyamalan's refreshing take on superhero movies is the timelessness of this.
    I kept forgetting that this didn't just come out and it's 23 years old. Besides maybe like the phones this could easily take place today.

    But yeah this movie is amazing and I loved it.

  • Blue Velvet

    Blue Velvet


    Dark, scary, violent, Freudian.

    Blue Velvet feels like a bad dream from its bizarre sexual nature to its unique editing to the overall strangeness of it.

  • Paris, Texas

    Paris, Texas


    I saw so much of other movies in this.

    The brother aspect sort of like Rain Man.
    The charm of Paper Moon.
    The family dynamic of Forrest Gump (sort of).

    I'm kinda surprised how much Letterboxd users love this movie as it's currently in the top 50 of any film ever, but I'm definitely not upset by it!

  • The Notebook

    The Notebook


    I know it's kind of stereotypical for me to give a sad romance movie 5 stars (especially one starring Ryan Gosling), but this is so good. I cried like a million times but, you know, it's the notebook.

    Anyways I've finally seen it and I'm very happy that I did.

  • Wild Strawberries

    Wild Strawberries


    Reflective and introspective, this film made me not only examine Isak's life but also my own. Such clever filmmaking. Dreams and memories are so cinematic. This is the first Bergman film I've seen and if the others are this good I can easily see why people consider him one of the best filmmakers of all time. I definitely think that this was inspired from A Christmas Carol and then I think it inspired Andrei Tarkovsky's Mirror. Amazing film.

    BS High

    This is actually insane...

    At first I was like this Roy Johnson guy seems kinda cool I wonder why everyone is hating on him and then I was like oh...

    Domestic abuser, dream shatterer, goose killer

  • Barbie



    Not the best movie starring Margot Robbie with a compilation near the end.
