    the lighthouse is one of my favourite films, so much so i have it tattooed on me, so knowing that eggers was directing a quite a larger scale film set in the viking era i was desperate to see it. 

    the northman exceeded my expectations and i got something so brilliantly crafted and perfectly detailed, having a film that seems like it is independent whilst showing of its long takes that just show how well eggers can direct action.

    in may 2019, i wanted to get more into film, seeing a random poster of adam sandler that said punch-drunk love on it and wondering why it didn’t look like the other films he had made.

    after watching it i felt something new, a new interest, a new beginning. wanting to understand lighting because of the lenses flares, the way the camera did some amazing shots. 

    i just wanted to understand how he pta made it, then i went in a…

    watched this the other day, my girlfriend went crazy when she saw the lesbian vampire film section. 

    not lesbian enough to be honest, the men get the most dialogue which explains it all. quite a goofy french film that will be fun to rewatch every now and then.

    ★★★★½

    maurice is just everything to me, the chemistry, the emotional bond, the teasing, the waiting and sadly the separation. 

    all the years that go by it just makes you think, has anything happened, but it being 1910-1912 it’s just heartbreaking seeing how they just can’t, just not even. 

    maurice and clive at first were made for each other but society stopped love. 

    also this film just looks beautiful

    It’s my favourite film to rewatch. Punch-Drunk Love is my favourite film but I try not to ruin it by watching it too much. This is just an enjoyable, entertaining and even relaxing film. 

    Maybe even my favourite Tarantino.

    ★★★★★

    dune: part one is exactly what it is, part one building up characters and left me wanting more, others may feel like there wasn’t anything resolved, but it felt quite refreshing to see a story like this.

    all i can think about is it’s scale, it’s huge and hans zimmer complements that with an amazing score.

    greg fraser displayed some gorgeous cinematography, which i’m looking forward to seeing in Imax.
