  • The Shining

    The Shining

    ★★★★★

    The Shining offers a cinematic experience like nothing else. Methodical pacing slowly builds up the tension as sanity deteriorates. Jack Nicholson as Jack Torrence might he the greatest casting choice ever. He fully embraces the intensity and revels in the chaos, but has the self-awareness to understand the absurdity of it all, giving a performance thats hilarious and terrifying at the same time. The film is creepy and horrifying all the way through, but what struck me this time was…

    Three Colors: Red

    ★★★★★

    Red is a comforting, but mystifying film. However lost or lonely one feels, everything can change in an instant. Chance encounters in this film lead the characters down paths that will forever change their lives. The film gives off a feeling like there’s something bigger at play, some force that is creating these events and chance encounters, guiding the characters.

I decided to start with Monsters Inc, which alongside Finding Nemo was my favorite as a kid. I must’ve watched this film an ungodly amount back in the day because I haven’t seen it in 10-15 years, but I soon realized while watching that every single scene had been…

    A Short Film About Killing

    ★★★★

    The colors and cinematography give this film such a nasty, eerie, and almost dystopian feel, which is perfect for a film that highlights a vile side of humanity.

  • Blow Out

    Blow Out

    ★★★

    I loved the camerawork and editing a lot, and the sequences where Jack is going back over the tapes reminded me of The Conversation. The story is well-written and engaging, but I felt like it lost its way a little bit towards the ending. The sequence where Jack is driving through the city is ridiculous and I don’t even know why it’s there.
