    A Brighter Summer Day

    ★★★★★

    May A Brighter Summer Day rest among the titans of cinema—towering in its depth, modest in its scale, and with rarely a false note during its four-hour run.

    In a time where film is constantly being brought to larger and louder places, Edward Yang's masterpiece serves as a beacon of simple complexity.

    The Big Parade

    ★★★★½

    The highest grossing film before Gone With the Wind, and for good reason: The Big Parade is truly epic, and surely a top-tier WWI piece, let alone silent. Some of the war set pieces and imagery (aged almost 100 years now) are as vivid and haunting as any modern film, if not more so. To see this in 1925 — I can’t imagine. What amazing work.

    ★★★★

    Massively original, majorly fucked. What a filmmaker, what a film. I am still in shock.

    The Lobster

    ★★★½

    Purely brilliant for its former half, and a little lackluster for the latter, The Lobster definitely overstays it's quirky welcome; though, that's not to say it isn't one of the best comedies (if you can even call it that) of the year. I'm all for anti-plot films, but after the departure from the hotel, its illogicality grows tiresome, as the age-old question of where is this all going? finally begins to dawn.

    But, even with its length, Lanthimos is making…

  • American Honey

    American Honey

    ★★★★½

    Andrea Arnold is a singularity in a cesspool of congruency―her camera, her talent, her subjects, all freely moving against the grain―in a world stamped with only one possible signature: hers. This is necessary independent cinema; a burst of creativity and rebellion so badly needed in an otherwise (mostly) standardized arena.

    American Honey breathes with a richness in character, so nuanced and so untapped, you just can't wait to see what comes next.
