  • Dogtooth

    Dogtooth

    ★★★★½

    Pretty disturbing in tone and very dark, Dogtooth is a pessimistic satire about family and social relations. The inspiration for the film came about due to a discussion director Yorgos Lanthimos had with some friends who were about to get married. When Lanthimos expressed doubts about the institution and family itself, he was struck by the idea about what would happen to a man who went to the ultimate extreme of protecting his family.
    I mention this because ever since…

    All Light, Everywhere

    ★★★★

    “The eye only sees in each thing that for which it looks, and it only looks for that of which it already has an idea.”

    I understand if someone found this documentary boring (Grace certainly did). I can also understand someone dismissing this as pretentious dribble. I absolutely ate this up, and found it to be one of the most fascinating documentaries I’ve seen in a while. This is a documentary that is interested in opening a dialogue, asking questions,…

  • The Eyes of Tammy Faye

    The Eyes of Tammy Faye

    ★★½

    A very paint-by-numbers biopic on the Christian broadcast couple that misused the fortune they amassed from loyal donors to the church. I say paint-by numbers because it certainly follows the linear, 3 act structure of the traditional biopic formula- and nothing is inherently wrong with that. But that doesn’t really result in a memorable story for me months down the road.

    With this particular genre, it seems there are two ways to differentiate your biopic form the rest: either break…

    The Tigger Movie

    ★★★★

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

    This is actually an incredibly sad, touching, and well written kids movie that has stuck with me ever since I saw it as a kid in the early 2000's.
    The story revolves around Tigger who realizes that no one in The Hundred Acre woods really likes bouncing. And they are too busy to play with him. And when Tigger accidentally ruins Eeyore's house everyone worked so hard to make, Rabbit gets angry and tells him to go bounce somewhere else…

    Forever's Gonna Start Tonight

    ★★★½

    Look, I normally don't review short films, but I have made a new rule that if a short film is very impactful (Like American Juggalo) or I have a lot to say about it.
    So this short film (About 15 minutes long) details the coming-of-age story of a young, Russian immigrant girl in Brooklyn. The film is shot well, with different languages spoken throughout. The sound editing especially sticks out to me because having now worked with sound to some…
