  • Clemency

    Clemency

    ★★★½

    “you can’t save the world”

    very sparse at times to a fault, but otherwise so compelling. this one will haunt me

  • Give Me Liberty

    Give Me Liberty

    ★★★

    “i depend on you”

    way too scattered for me to fully love, but still kind-hearted at the core. i would have preferred more of a look at the bond between the two leads, but i also see the appeal of involving so many kinds of characters. lauren spencer is maybe my favorite breakout performance of the year now, and ending a movie with bon iver gets me every time

    Luce

    ★★★★

    “it’s not that simple”
    “nothing ever is”

    handled with delicate complexity that left me questioning every word and every glance. not much is answered, but it doesn’t matter anyways. what’s more important is the perception of identity and what it means to be good or bad. and how there’s barely an in between. this was sensational

  • Little Women

    Little Women

    ★★★

    “there are some natures too noble to curb and too lofty to bend”

    i’m on the outside looking in. i felt so much while watching this, crying a lot and smiling even more. not bold enough to wow, but comfortable enough to settle into. i liked that. but just as i felt with lady bird, that feeling disappeared into the fog when it ended, shattering the daydream and leaving me all but comforted by the experience. while viewing i saw…

  • Uncut Gems

    Uncut Gems

    ★★★★½

    “that’s all the gem. that’s all the gem”

    i’m so full of adrenaline that i don’t know what to do with it all. this was like a slow acting virus that crept up on me, i didn’t realize what it was doing until it was too late. the last act has to be one of the best of the year. fuck. i need to collect myself

    ★★

    i literally don’t know what to make of this but even with that it’ll still probably be my favorite thing i see this weekend

  • Home Alone

    Home Alone

    ★★★★½

    taught my niece what a “booby trap” is during this viewing and now she won’t stop saying it. also at one point she said “i wanna watch roma” no i didn’t make that up

  • Dark Waters

    Dark Waters

    ★★★½

    this was so good except for the guy next to us literally sucking on his candies so loud and humming and coughing. please go back home and watch bonanza or something sir
