    I'm Thinking of Ending Things

    ★★★★★

    2020

    Where to begin? Where to end? Where to start unraveling this roller coaster of dread? In all of its pretentious craziness of layered subtext in every imagery and line of dialogue is an immensely human story. A story about growing old and getting lost in life and its mysteries. Subjects that Charlie Kauffman is all too familiar  with. 

    I feel exhausted, perplexed, terrified as if I have seen a horror film; I feel lost. Putting your thoughts into words…

  • Mulholland Drive

    Mulholland Drive

    ★★★★★

    Watching Mulholland Drive feels almost evolutionary, constantly changing with every viewing as new details and nuances come to light. It never once feels old due to its brilliant editing that seamlessly weaves multiple side stories and ideas together in some of the best two hours of cinema ever put to screen.

    I constantly grow fonder of this film every time that I…

    Beasts of No Nation

    ★★★★

    Beasts of No Nation is the first film I ever wrote a review for.

    ★★★★

    2020

    Perhaps it is just a soft spot for Aaron Sorkin’s writing, but I thoroughly enjoyed this film. I knew nothing about the actual events that inspired the film going in so it is impossible for me to be critical of how the story was interpreted and while it might falter in this aspect it didn’t affect my viewing experience. 

    I liked the setting of the story and all of the actors involved and when pared with a fast paced…

  • Dogville

    Dogville

    ★★★★

    Dogville is most likely the film that comes closest to resembling the idea of a book. With its barren and incomplete setting of an American town made on a sound stage without walls or doors, imagining the actual surroundings is up to the viewer; much like in a book. At the film’s beginning it felt much like a gimmick. Interesting, yet unnecessary. But as the film progressed it became obvious that the film couldn’t have been made in any other…

  • Unorthodox

    Unorthodox

    ★★★

    Overall a good story worth exploring. The show itself was of a good quality, but it felt somehow stretched thin. I do think it might have worked better as a film or a proper, longer series.
