    ★★★½

    Going backward to go forward.

    There aren’t many filmmakers working in the industry today who is able to do whatever the hell they want, whenever the hell they want, and Christopher Nolan is in that exclusive group. After the much more grounded and back-to-basics approach with Dunkirk a few years ago, I was wondering what Nolan could possibly do next. He’s already been able to blow the minds of millions with films like Inception and Interstellar, but I believe those…

    The Personal History of David Copperfield

    ★★★

    Inspiration for a lifetime.

    There have been plenty of Victorian era adaptations throughout cinematic history, yet I don’t believe I’ve witnessed one this off the walls before. Armando Iannucci’s latest film, coming off the heels of The Death of Stalin, brings us an adaptation of Charles Dickens’ “David Copperfield”. It’s great to see Dev Patel getting more juicy roles to work with, and while we unfortunately haven’t been able to see him in The Green Knight up until this point,…

    I'm Thinking of Ending Things

    ★★★★½

    What could’ve been.

    The master of hopelessness and the human condition is back after releasing his previous film five years ago. Charlie Kaufman is quickly becoming one of my favorite screenwriters and filmmakers in general, essentially getting better and better after every new release as he grows both as a man and as an artist. I’m Thinking of Ending Things was easily one of my most anticipated coming into the year, and thankfully with this age of isolation and hysteria…

    Making it even doesn’t make it right.

    This has been a film that I’ve been trying to get my hands on since the beginning of the year, and thankfully I was able to finally get a chance to see it. Premiering at Cannes last year and being Russia’s entry for the Best International Feature Film at the previous Academy Awards, there was quite a bit of positive buzz around this movie. Not knowing anything about it, this ended up becoming…

    The Hate U Give

    ★★

    A messy message.

    Coming in, I wasn’t really expecting much out of this movie based on the trailer alone. I had a very similar negative reaction to the trailer for Blindspotting, but that ended up being one of my favorite movies of the year so far, so I was hoping The Hate U Give would turn out similarly. Unfortunately my fears came true, and although the message for the film is obviously necessary, the execution is quite poor. The movie…

    Marriage Story

    ★★★★★

    Divorce brings out the worst in people.

    Almost eleven years ago, my dad asked my mom for a divorce and I have since divided spending my time between my two parents. I’ve officially lived over half of my life not having my two biological parents in the same household, but like every adult will tell you: divorce is usually for the best. Both of my parents have been so great to me and my sister, and I’m thankful that my…
