    Love in a Puff


    Love is … going from being acquaintances in the alleyway smoke break to being jealous when the cool cop lights her cigarette as you arrive late; love is running into each other awkwardly at the same 7-11; love is the intoxication of sending and receiving banal texts; changing your phone provider to his but getting rebuffed because it’s too committal; love is taking your time while rushing in helplessly; love is in the things we’re too shy to say out…

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

    As someone who finds colonial histories (and its dynamics of power, difference, assimilation) so interesting and important, i went into this really hyped. how often do you get a Blockbuster about Native Americans based on real events in the 1920s, starring Leo Dicaprio, Robert De Niro, and Jesse Plemons??

    Even with high expectations, I still found the movie compelling, well-acted and moving. I have a lot of respect for Scorsese for telling this story and doing a pretty good job…

    You Hurt My Feelings


    Loved it - laugh out loud funny, moving, GREAT premise, everyone was likeable. Nicole Holofcener is the Taylor swift of movies

    Havana rose Liu and ayo edibiri are now my favorite onscreen couple. They are so cute.

  • Showing Up

    Showing Up


    Portrait of an artist without hot water. Very slow, but also very rewarding, to watch an angsty Michelle Williams struggle with showing up, opening up, and letting go. A great, cathartic ending as well.

  • Oppenheimer



    Insanely good movie about an insane ambition, achievement, country and war.

    Raining in the Mountain


    Somehow, King Hu has managed to combine: aesthetics of water and ink painting + Chinese opera score + wuxia/heist/comedy + gorgeous Buddhist temple setting + contemplations on power and desire.

    Mission: Impossible – Dead Reckoning Part One


    my favourite tom cruise is sultry french tom, second favourite is italian lawyer tom.

    everyone in this movie has impeccable sprinting form. honestly it's more visually satisfying than the CGI/stunts.

    solid friday night watch, i do feel like these blockbuster action movies only make sense on the big screen.

    This movie taught me that if you’re feeling down, just go to your quiet place in the middle of a forest to dance, and then accidentally roll down a mountain for five minutes. Second best scene was will arnett ‘babe no waittttt’

    City Hall


    Wiseman says, ‘I like to show competent people trying to do a good job,’ and that out of 7 well run US city governments he emailed about filming, only Boston said yes.

    This is an extremely rare, and thus valuable glimpse into how the giant machinery that is government works. I think the question is always, who are the decision makers actually accountable to (the answer is never just ‘the public’), and how does that shape their competing priorities (maintaining…
