    I Stand Alone


    On the 24th Edition of Collokino I spoke with Dubthrone about one of my favorite filmmakers directorial debut. Which incidently is one of the most dense and self assured debuts I've had the pleasure of seeing.

    "There's something I know when I'm with you that I forget when I'm away. Tell me, my love. Did you wish for me to come back and live with you again?" -Captain Smith

    Almost 15 years ago this was my first Malick film. I must have been in my last year of middle school or thereabouts when this picture floored me and wracked my young mind with feeling I was unequipped to fully collate. I didn't know how…

    Wholly of itself and softly fantastic and fable laden. Somewhere between a fever dream and somber reality, the pain and desire amidst solitude while surrounded by one's loving family is brilliantly captured if not always inviting. One of the beautiful reminders that cinema can occasionally elevate and communicate the humanity of us all through just a couple characters.

    Those hands are a character in and of themselves.

  • Motherhood



    Exceedingly conventional and for very brief instances engaging.

    No substance to content. One of the most droll and uninteresting high profile pictures in a long time. Everything felt mashed together without cohesion, the socio-economic and political points made were undercut by it's very narrative. The basic premise of Triple Frontier watered down with moments that are poorly stylized and seem to belong to entirely different films. I don't know what movie everyone else is seeing because this was as close to awful as I've seen from…

  • Midsommar



    What a killer way to teach someone how to cope with death.

    I was wrapped up in Midsommar the entire time. It felt like an unflinching and uncompromising bit of autership that rubbed me in all the right ways, regarding death, paranoia, loneliness, fear, desire, and unspoken truth. As of now I like it more than Hereditary. We'll see if that's true on rewatch.

    Super rich world, very tapestral and nuanced. The attention to detail with a particular side character suffering injuries made the world feel incredibly real. Ari Aster is out here making movies that will transcend generations.
