    Do the Right Thing

    ★★★★★

    Endlessly complicated, entertaining, and dimensional. One of the smartest and most important American films ever made.

    It stands among all the bullshit race reconciliation films to come out alongside it, from Driving Miss Daisy all the way up to Green Book, which paint a pretty picture of a world where racism is only the result of a few bad people who can be ostracized to make the world a perfect utopia. Life doesn’t work this way. Do the Right Thing understands that. It…

  • Spencer

    Spencer

    Spencer is a ghost story. A portrait of a woman trapped in a house which is haunted by tradition. The past folding in on the present, and boxing out the future entirely.

    Kristen Stewart is a complete powerhouse, the resemblance to Diana is uncanny and beyond that the acting stands above many of the strongest performances of the year. Likewise, the film is constructed by Pablo Larraín and the rest of the cast & crew in a manner which is nothing short…

    The GOAT shark movie.

  • Tenet

    Tenet

    Considering Nolan’s spectacle driven blockbusters to be nothing more or less than vehicles to move characters between large action setpieces, Tenet is an incredible exercise in what he’s setting out to do.

    Not much to the characters, but all of the performances are good.

    “Remember, what makes you different is what makes you Spider-Man.” 

    It is crazy to me that we’re in a year where Black Panther and Avengers: Infinity War came out and this Sony animated film is the best superhero movie I’ve seen in 2018. It’s difficult to collect my rambling thoughts about how much I loved this film so this review won’t be very analytical. 

    Everything about this movie was so fresh, beautiful, and fun. The story was suprisingly mature for…

    “Anybody accidentally kills anybody in a fight, they go to jail. It’s called manslaughter.” 

    Tarantino has done it again. Every component from cinematography, lighting, soundtrack, direction, editing, writing, pacing, tone, and especially the acting is totally phenomenal. This was my first time seeing a Tarantino film in theaters and that was such a lovely experience. Leonardo DiCaprio and Brad Pitt should really just get a joint Oscar for this one, their chemistry is perfect and each of them is so…
