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

    Note: I did my best to keep this review as structured as possible, but there were so many more thoughts racing through my head than I expected when I began to type this a few hours ago. This review started as a 9/10, but the more I typed the more certain I was that Burning is a flat out masterpiece. This review is easily my longest and fresh off a first viewing, so proceed with caution and I hope you enjoy!…

    Can’t tell if there’s too much going on or absolutely nothing at all in Humanité. I was never bored, but there’s only so many times Emmanuel Schotte could puppy dog eye his way through scenes of transcendent detachment before I detach entirely. Not a good mystery, but a lobotomized character study that never advances much in all of its two plus hours. Feel kinda the same way how I felt watching La Cienaga in that I appreciate the craft yet can’t really fathom how to enjoy it.

And that also lasts two hours.

    2019 Sundance Film Fest Film #4: 


    And to think just I was starting to get burnt out from this whole “Sundance while I work part time and go to school full time” thing, Monos comes out of nowhere to be something bigger than a simple “must see at Sundance” title. Monos feels like a fucking miracle, an achievement in capturing a true to life nightmare scenario through the lens of a fairy tale world. Monos seems like it could take place…
