    Nomadland

    ★★★★★

    "I maybe spent too much of my life just remembering..."

    Chloé Zhao's Nomadland provides a confronting examination of the most universally experienced proponent to our existence: mortality. Both in the all too familiar secondhand experiences of witnessing the ones we love face their inevitable ends and the far more jarring firsthand experience of death. Death is inevitable. It's pain. It's agony. It's peace. It's freedom. It's the end. It's the beginning. It's a circle within a circle within a circle.…

    ★★★★★

    Why be ashamed of what you want?” 

    My fourth watch of undoubtably one of my favorite movies and it has yet to lose an ounce of its charm. I feel so at home amongst Gerwig’s version of the March women.

    There aren’t really any characters within film where I have felt like I truly and wholly see myself in them and their actions. Which I know is a privileged thing to be saying as a white woman but I struggle…

    Lost in Translation

    ★★★★★

    Yes, Lost in Translation is a great representation of loneliness, of feeling adrift. But if there’s any emotion that Sofia Coppola’s sophomore project truly invoked from me, it’s sonder. The Dictionary of Obscure Sorrows defines sonder as “the realization that each random passerby is living a life as vivid and complex as your own”. 

    I find that in loneliness, we become our most observant selves, almost, in a way, as a coping mechanism. We watch the passerby with more attention,…

    American Murder: The Family Next Door

    ★★★★

    This crime is virtually always premeditated.” 

    Another impressive addition to Netflix’s True Crime catalogue. I was really familiar with this story, so I didn’t learn anything new or find myself surprised by any of the information presented. However, the format of using exclusively raw footage really added a lot to the quality of the whole thing.

    Christopher Watts is a fucking monster. It’s impossible for me to think about those poor sweet girls and Shanann without crying. I hope, in whatever form it may be, that they are resting peacefully.

  • One Night in Miami...

    One Night in Miami...

    ★★★★½

    "Black power... I like that sound of that."

    There is an almost indescribable captivating energy that is interwoven into dialogue driven films and One Night in Miami is a shining of example of that very sensation. Regina King's directorial debut delivers a well measured, expressive character study of four truly inspiring men and the intricacies of their friendship with one another.

    Kinglsey Ben-Adir, Eli Goree, Aldis Hodge, and Leslie Odom Jr. give us some of the best performances of the…
