This line said a lot about the writing and directing of this film. Noah Baumbach’s goal was ultimately to make you empathise with everyone in the heartbreaking situation. Marriage Story showed how complicated we are as humans and how complex our feelings towards someone who we love can be. The performances by Adam Driver and Scarlet Johansson were phenomenal. Great film, Check it out.

    Synecdoche, New York

    ★★★★½

    Synecdoche network was nihilistic in a comforting way. I have never seen a film like it, it tackled age old themes like death and ego in a fresh and eccentric way. I will definitely have to rewatch it many times to grasp the many themes and metaphors of this film. Highly recommended.

    Dolemite Is My Name

    ★★★★

    A very fun film and a great biopic. Eddie Murphy gives a great and hilarious performance. I really enjoyed the pacing of the film, the overall message and the way it wrapped up. I would definitely recommend Dolemite is my name.
