    Kadhalum Kadanthu Pogum

    ★★★★★

    Deliberately refuses the epic to focus instead on everyday gestures and textures: an umbrella, a mediocre meal, some ineffectual punches, a smile. The feeling of rain, or one too many drinks, or a hug. Every small thing about this movie is given weight and unexpected dignity; every gesture the possibility (not always realized, but always palpable) to make this crushing world into something a little different.

    I know everyone is focused on Fawad but can we please take a moment to recognize how hot Ratna is in this movie 🥵

    I've been thinking about Kriti's comment that you can't look away from ALR movies even when they repulse you. Maybe even especially when they repulse you? The way this movie leans into its ugliness and extremity is pretty stunning.

    I'd forgive a lot for that one minute of Dhanush dancing alone in the bathroom. Probably not as much as this movie needs forgiven, though.

  • While You Were Sleeping

    While You Were Sleeping

    I was convinced I had already seen this when the movie I had watched was in fact Sleepless in Seattle

  • Last Holiday

    Last Holiday

    The festive joy of telling your boss and your boss's boss to go fuck themselves

  • The Holiday

    The Holiday

    ★★★

    I don't remember why I hated this so much the last time I watched it but now I think it's cute and perfectly serviceable for holiday viewing.

  • Never Been Kissed

    Never Been Kissed

    Belated realization that I’ve been in love with Drew Barrymore since I was a teen

  • House of Gucci

    House of Gucci

    ★★

    Why was this movie about fashion, glamour, and opulence so fucking ugly and boring to look at?

  • Nazar

    Nazar

    ★★★★

    Electrifying when she opens, or shatters, the opaque window of his narration: "you are killing me."

  • The Confined

    The Confined

    ★★★★½

    Spending all his time drinking tea, not writing, not sleeping, and being obsessed with Dimple Kapadia...could this be the most relatable character in all of fiction? But jokes aside what a perfect, perfect movie, with so many individual moments of heartstopping beauty and a haunting atmosphere that won't dissipate (I don't want it to).

  • Bunty Aur Babli

    ★★★★

    Oh to be scammed by them 😭
