    The Most Honest Film About Love Ever Made

    Amour is a 2012 film written and directed by Michael Haneke, a director known for unapologetic filmmaking. The film itself is almost a series of independent events spliced together. Similar to how the episodic nature of Zero Dark Thirty (another 2012 film) represents its taking place over several years, the editing in Amour also gives us a sense of passing time.

    The music is very sparse (par for a Haneke film). The…

    Ignore the hype. Ignore the awards. Hell, ignore this review. Just sit back and experience this film for yourself.

    Simply put, Roma is among the richest examples of what cinema can offer.

    Over the brief 134-minute runtime, we grow into a family in a patient and natural way as we live and breathe their day-to-day lives in 1970s Mexico City. The film is essentially a…

    Fun, sexy, shameless formula fluff. Tonally uneven, despite never taking itself too seriously. Too much drama, too many twists, not enough KingsmanΒ action.Β Meh out of 10.

    The enemy up here is not a person or a thing... It's the endless void.

    2001. Solaris. Interstellar. Ex Machina. How Sunshine should have ended. A carbon copy of the composer's score from last year's Never Look Away. Brad Pitt essentially as Ryan Gosling from First Man (but with an unparalleled ability to make his eyes well up on command).

    Derivative as it may be though, Ad Astra's greatest strength is in its storytelling and visuals. Get past the thinly…

    I have always felt held. By a family... a real family. Do you feel held?

    One of the most universal and innately human desires is a sense of belonging. The human brain is not meant to be alone; we are evolved to be a part of something. Belonging fundamentally allows us to form our own sense of identity, establish social connections through community, and provides us with love, attention, security, and purpose. Perhaps more importantly, a lack of belonging is…

    Rambo: Last Blood is a hollow, self-contained sequel that manages to be both inconsistent and completely unnecessary for the character. The main plot points are so brief…
