    My Night at Maud's


    Words. Flooding, invading the space, unstoppable. Uneasy, they fill the air with unoriginal thoughts, with the arrogance that comes with the belief of thinking you know the truth about everything. Glances. Elusive, the rapid movement of the eyes. They fill the brief silence between words, expressing all of what's left unsaid, expressing the forbidden desires of the souls, the ones that would go against one's principles. The characters leave the frame. The frame stays empty, still. In the air both…

    The Crowd


    The American Dream. The belief that, wherever you come from, whoever you are, you can do it, you will do it. An entire nation prospered because of that belief, and countless movies and novels made of that very same belief the foundation for their narration. Yet few of them tackles the way that dream can ruin one's life, how that belief can be erroneous, a blinding mirage to make the masses believe they are special, when, in real life, they…

    Death is incomprehensible. Humans are not made to understand it. When confronting it we are left defenseless, vulnerable. Nothing can protect us from it, nothing can explain it. One can only accept it as a part of life. But the path to acceptance is long, and it never comes to a real end. Adults do not know death, but they have learned to live alongside with it. For children it's different. They do not understand life, how could they have…

    I'm cold

    Coldness invades the space, all at once, it takes the breath away, freezes everything in space and time. Its biting presence doesn't let anything go, it traps. Britain is trapped in cold traditions, the centuries old ice provides for uncomfortable safety against the flames of the unpredictable future, so alluring, so scary.
    Some like this familiar chilliness. They have, after all, been raised in it, why should they wish for something different? But there are some that can't…

    Raya and the Last Dragon


    Raya and the last dragon is Disney’s last effort, but is it really an effort at all?
    The plot is derivative to an extent I couldn’t even imagine was possible, it takes a lot from The Road to El Dorado, Kung Fu Panda, Mulan, Pirates of the Caribbean, The last airbender, Moana and there’s probably something I forgot.

    The animation is really good, can’t deny that, the water seemed real, but I found it to be almost annoying, there’s difference…

    Taipei Suicide Story

    We fuel ourselves on memory. Memories of happy times with beautiful people, memories of food, memories of a life that doesn't even seem real, for how different it is from what it is now. Memories, corrupted by nostalgia, seem ever so perfect to our present self, and the more perfect they seem, the more unattainable they are. Memories, alongside with hope, are what keeps us going, what makes us say: I can do it. But it comes a time when…
