  • A Brighter Summer Day

    A Brighter Summer Day

    “No, we have all the time in the world.”

    No explicit spoilers, but I’d highly recommend watching it first; enjoy.

    A Brighter Summer Day is one of the densest and profound pieces of art ever. It’s a beautiful dive into the heart and soul a changing generation seeking sanctuary in a time and place where their household values and country collide and the tragic response to it. It’s such an unadulterated view into the Taiwanese experience, but that never restrains…

    Neon Genesis Evangelion: The End of Evangelion

    [1000TH REVIEW]

    “I still have no idea how to find happiness...but I’ll just stay here”. 

    This film is extremely important to me, as is the entire series. Neon Genesis and Twin Peaks are two pieces of fiction that have irreversibly changed the way I think; both in cinematic terms and otherwise. This film has so much to unpack, and while there are small details that reveal the bigger mosaic, yet I think the *feeling* of End of Evangelion and the…

    Django Unchained

    Tarantino’s second entry in his revisionist history trilogy is definitely the most conflicting and raises the most questions. Questions like, “should he be the one to make this?” and “does violence, at least the way it’s portrayed in the Candyland massacre, give the wrong message?” 

    After wrestling with some of these questions in the four or so years since I had seen the film last I came up with “your mileage may vary.” I think it’s done exceptionally well, and manages to ride and extraordinary thin line as good as it can considering who made it and when. I still get a lot out this.

  • Kill Bill: The Whole Bloody Affair

    Kill Bill: The Whole Bloody Affair

    Having seen both films many times, both on their own and back to back, this is the premiere way to watch it. I’ve always thought that these work so much better as one complete version.

    WHAT DID JACK DO?

    Short Review:

    Here’s everything I’ve found about What Did Jack Do? I’m fairly sure it’s not available online — legal or otherwise — and as far as I’ve seen there aren’t any indications of it being included on a home release; though it’s a possibility. 

    I found it was screen at this film festival in 2017 and the link I added takes you to a FaceBook post with much more context and background. Though I’m assuming it’s a masterpiece, I doubt…
