    A Little Testament

    A little birthday gift, I'm finally premiering my graduation film for the world to see!

    It may not be the happiest thing to show on a birthday but it is nonetheless an important personal story that I finally decided to share with a larger audience. It's been on the festival circuit for a little while but I figured it was time to let more people see it and not keep it for the lucky few who could catch it at…

    1917

    β˜…β˜…Β½

    It’s not what a film is about, it’s about how it’s about it. The most complex and original stories could get completely chopped up because of how awfully a film is directed, edited, etc. and a story that has been told countless times before can be given a fresh beating heart by a daring new auteur. 1917, as unfortunate as it may be, doesn’t really tell us anything we didn’t know before. It’s a technical achievement of immense scale which…

    Few films refer to a man's private parts as pickles and eggs but this is one of them.

    (also, let this be your PSA that the score for this film SLAPS and is easily one of the best pieces of film music of the new millennium)

    Might've been interesting if it leaned more into its quirky, indie set-up but its self-serious tone makes it a chore to sit through. In the end, this story plays with such vague generalities that it's hard to really care for anything or anyone.

    Yeah TimothΓ©e, you're not the only one having "visions" of Zendaya, but most people just dare to call them what they actually are: wet dreams.

    All jokes aside, I have quite a lot of thoughts on Dune (as with most of Villeneuve's films). Longer review/ramblings coming very soon.

    ----------------------------------------------------------------------

    Dune may, in the end, prove to be unfilmable after all. Frank Herbert’s vision was one of such an epic scope that it just doesn’t seem to find a right fit…

    Added to: Jim Jarmusch Ranked & Leo's Top 200+ favorites

    I absolutely adore how Jarmusch turns around the idea of Checkov's gun cinematically by letting it go off in the first and second act before finally showing it in the third but simultaneously following the exact idea of Checkov's gun. That's probably one of the smartest jokes I've seen in any film in a long, long while.

    As for the rest of the film, it is Jarmusch through and through. It…
