  • My Dinner with Andre

    My Dinner with Andre

    ★★★★★

    Conversation - it’s a beautiful thing. Not only in itself but also in the fact that it’s one thing everyone has in common. Whether it’s through words, actions, or anything else, it’s how we establish connections with other people. 

    This film portrays a very accurate depiction of how conversation plays out. It starts out with the more mundane but as both parties become more comfortable it becomes deeper and more interesting.

    Andre and Wallace together discover a lot about each…

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

    “You can never replace anyone, because everyone is made of such beautiful, specific details” - Julie Delpy

    Linklater basically perfected the dialogue in this movie. He worked countless hours with Hawke and Delpy, rewriting the script over and over again until he knew it would flow as smoothly as it did. It shows how real people talk, capturing conversation in a way that should be impossible. It seems like improv, because the nature of how real it is doesn’t even…

    Annette

    ★★★

    Annette is such an interesting film. It's super fun. It's very refreshing. It's incredibly ambitious.

    But it fucking sucks

    But it's also really good

    I am very mixed

    But anyway, I enjoyed watching this I guess. Annette has some really interesting themes that are presented very well and very maturely. It isn't oversaturated in that aspect and it focuses on the right things. Stylistically though, I just can't rock with this. The musical aspect is interesting at the very least,…

    Once Upon a Time… in Hollywood

    ★★★½

    The film was written kind of like when you finish your essay 200 words short so you finish it up by over-explaining everything you already had. A lot happened that was really unnecessary, and I really wish they used the basis of the last 30 minutes for the whole film. It was almost like the beginning came slow and steady, but the end was slightly rushed. I feel like I’m missing something now that the movie is over, but I…

  • Portrait of a Lady on Fire

    Portrait of a Lady on Fire

    ★★★★★

    some of the most beautiful story telling i have ever seen. from the beginning, the emotions, relationships, and details all follow the rules. the first portrait clearly represents a boundary that divides Héloise and Marianne. they don’t yet know they love each other, but Marianne is unable to accurately paint the portrait because they are unmotivated and disconnected.

    the way that they communicate as the movie progresses builds the bond expressed through Mariannes true artwork. they don’t only love, but challenge…
