    Suzhou River


    Much like the opening sequence, I found myself drifting through the film as if i was a passenger on the boat. Enveloped by a myriad of emotions and in a constant state of observation at all the transient and ephemeral moments of love, loneliness and tragedy unfolding in front of me, all amidst the backdrop of a far slower societal change. There's hue's of Kar-Wai here, the dream-like quality, except it's a portrait of the grittier side of Shanghai at the…

    Blue Spring


    there’s not many films which exhibit the disparity of youth as well as blue spring. 

    a bleak exercise in hopelessness; of shattered dreams and broken youth. 

    the nihilism and mundanity that stems from one's adolescence.

    I'm not complaining.

    The Berserk manga is one of the finest pieces of fiction I've ever read in my life. An existential nightmare which explores the very essence of human nature in a dark and grizzly world full of it's own charm and beauty. 

    This 1997 series is the best visual adaptation we have. A…

    Goldman v Silverman


    low iq - cool short about two new york street performers hustling over a corner block

    high iq - sandler's goldman is a metaphor for the oscars and him telling silverman to fuck off is basically the bullshit that was handed to uncut gems in what was a clear snub, how the fuck wasn't sandler nominated for best lead
