    Magnolia

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

    First time i watched it i didn't enjoy because of the singing and the frogs. Today i watched for the third time and i felt like the singing and the frogs are the only thing that would make sense to happen.

    There's an incredible amount of crying and stuttering in panic, and John Brion doesn't help; but UHHH i love it. Probably my favorite film by Paul Thomas Anderson, but i think i say that about every Paul Thomas Anderson film.

  • Avengers: Age of Ultron

    Avengers: Age of Ultron

    Bruce Banner's internal battle is probably my favorite thing about the MCU and i like how is explored in here. Vision is the coolest and he looks cute af with Wanda.

    My favorite part was when Tony, Bruce and Clint all wore dad flannels at the same time.

  • Jeanne Dielman, 23, Quai du Commerce 1080 Bruxelles

    Jeanne Dielman, 23, Quai du Commerce 1080 Bruxelles

    I feel Chantal Akerman calculated precisely the distance she wanted to keep between me and the film; a distance that allows me to enter in the environment that she built, but still being an outsider watching everything from a third person perspective, emotionally; a distance in which the experience feels personal yet disconnected and empty.

  • Uncle Boonmee Who Can Recall His Past Lives

    Uncle Boonmee Who Can Recall His Past Lives

    I currently don't find myself in a place in life to process what happened in Uncle Boonmee Who Can Recall His Past Lives, but i do know i felt it. Everything that's captured in this film seems to be in its right place. Looking forward for a rewatch.

  • Climax

    Climax

    Life is a collective impossibility.

    Climax is a trip through light, dance, and descontrol; and i'm in love with it. Today was my second visit, and i think it hit me a lot harder.

    During more than one occasion, i found myself clenching my teeth very fast without noticing at first; that's Noé-induced anxiety.

  • Climax

    Climax

    Every single situation where i started to get a grip on the vibe and feel comfortable in the environment, Noé did a 180° and slapped me in the face. The Climax experience is very disorientating, which is what makes it wonderful i think.

    Oh, and props to Gaspar for not showing up with a wig in this one.

  • Our Little Sister

    Our Little Sister

    I think Koreeda does a beautiful job at capturing a story about women, their relationships, and their struggles; and i appreciate that he takes his time to carefully construct each of these aspects. Lovely.

  • Suspiria

    Suspiria

    I think this is beautiful, i didn't love everything about it, but it crawled under my skin and made me feel things.

    The sequence with 'Unmade' made me go "yes! filmmaking!" in my head.

  • Stop Making Sense

    Stop Making Sense

    I'm going through the full Talking Heads experience, so obviously after listening Speaking in Tongues i had to watch Stop Making Sense.

    I don't have much to say, this is very beautiful and i love David Byrne.

  • The Killing of a Sacred Deer

    The Killing of a Sacred Deer

    The first time i watched this, i thought: "this is cool but i don't think i'll watch it again anytime soon". Today i watched for the third time in the year and i still don't have too many words for it, but i know i love it very much.

    Merry christmas to everyone, but especially to Yorgos Lanthimos

    Paul Thomas Anderson wondering like a child with a camera in a room where Jonny Greenwood and the boys are jamming while Nigel Godrich tries to get a bird away from the roof was what i needed to see.

  • Paris, Texas

    Paris, Texas

    I felt vulnerable watching Paris, Texas. Wenders, Shepard, Dean Stanton, and Muller; they are all geniuses and nothing i write about their work will do justice to it. I fell in love with this film and the only bad part about it is that i'll never get to watch it for the first time again.
