  • If Beale Street Could Talk

    If Beale Street Could Talk

    ★★★★

    “you ready for this?”

    so immaculate that it’s almost untouchable in a way, like looking at artwork through glass. it’s still a sight to behold, but feels slightly inaccessible somehow. the story and how it’s presented and mixed up is my biggest issue here, but it’s overall packaged so carefully and beautifully that i find i didn’t mind much at all in the end

    and nicholas britell really did it again: this is easily the best score of the year. my goosebumps were continuous

    “it’s okay, joe”

    as i’ve been solidifying my 2018 favorites list the past few weeks, this has been at the back of my mind every day. i saw something in it the first viewing, but i didn’t exactly connect. sometimes revisiting something, even something you already love, makes it click. your mood has to be right, and your timing. like things perfectly align so what once felt hazy in comparison is now clear. now i understand, and now i can…

    Annihilation

    ★★★★½

    “it wasn't destroying, it was changing everything”

    i had to shush my friends for most of the movie, but after we cheered to the new year at midnight and finally watched the pinnacle scene (maybe the best lengthy scene of 2018) i wasn’t sure if any of them were still breathing. happy new year everyone

    “it was making something new”

    The Favourite

    ★★★★★

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

    “love has limits”

    for one, the burning of letters signifies regret, and maybe even growth in the direction of selflessness. and for another, it signifies moral decay, the choosing of one path with no way back. this is your life now, you’ve all made your bed and now you have to lie in it

    it would be one thing if i was just entertained or emotionally affected by this movie, but i think it’s probably my favorite screenplay of the…

    ★★★½

    “one little drink won’t kill you”

    it probably sounds like a cliche but this is so different and effective that it’s startling: expertly shot, but the soundscape is equally as impressive. the whole thing is so strangely intriguing
