    Paris, Texas


    “I wanted to see him so bad that I didn't even dare imagine him anymore.”

    Seemingly birthed from the dust that surrounds him, a man wordlessly emerges from the desert, trudging towards an invisible horizon, his face weary and withered, his memory elusive, his soul haunted by regret and sorrow.

    Wim Wenders' Paris, Texas is a melancholic portrait of a broken man yearning for reconnection with a family whom he had left years ago. But much more so, the film…

    India Song


    Marguerite Duras’ India Song unfurls within the opulent confines of a French embassy in India. Amidst a lingering soirée, couples sway to the rhythm of languid tangos, their graceful movements adrift in the frame, their reflections gliding upon a dominant mirror's surface. Yet, silence pervades the air, as if words have abandoned their voices. Anonymous whispers seem to comment on the image. Dramatic action unfolds offscreen or within the mirror's illusory depths.

    Mirrors and smoke shroud reality with metaphorical veils.…

    “Cinema is the most beautiful fraud in the world.”

    Goodbye to Godard. An ode to a legacy of rebellion.

    A true great. It’s impossible to overstate how much modern cinema owes to Jean-Luc Godard. With a career spanning six decades ranging from popular existentialist features with experimental flair, revolutionary socio-political manifestos, and avant-garde postmodern essay films about cinema itself, Godard’s filmography is as complex and conflicting as the enigmatic sunglasses-wearing chain-smoker himself.

    Godard’s subversive and demanding brand of cinema sought…

    “Some sort of pressure must exist; the artist exists because the world is not perfect.”

    When we look back to pivotal moments that shaped our lives, oftentimes what we remember most vividly isn’t the details of what happened but the lingering feeling we are left with.

    Andrei Tarkovsky was an arthouse film director who was endlessly fascinated by the spiritual and the metaphysical. Throughout his career, he devoted his brand of cinema to tackling questions concerning time, memory and our…

  • Naked



    “You think you can recapture your youth by fucking it. You don't wanna fuck me. You'll catch something cruel.”

    Mike Leigh’s Naked is a riveting parable brimming with a scornful wit and humanity unseen through initial viewing. The film chronicles the exploits of the sardonic and nihilistic vagabond, Johnny, a man who is first introduced as he brutally rapes a young woman in a back alleyway. Fearing the repercussions of his actions, Johnny flees to the streets of London. There,…

    Lost in Translation


    “Let's never come here again because it would never be as much fun.

    A beautiful sadness slowly but surely permeates Sofia Coppola’s sophomore feature, Lost in Translation, a portrait of two lost souls yearning for purpose and meaningful connection. Bob and Charlotte are at an impasse in their lives where they mutually feel neglected by loved ones and disoriented by the greater outside world.

    Bob is a fading Hollywood actor in a midlife crisis. Charlotte is a young woman apprehensive…
