    White of the Eye

    ★★★★½

    By far one the most bizarre and unconventional films I have ever laid my strained eyes and ears upon. I went into it completely blind, without reading anything about it (there’s not much to read in the first place) and was pretty blown away in the end. Some stray notes because I can’t write a coherent review for such a strange experience:

    Barry Lyndon

    ★★★★★

    I like films that don’t instruct their audience on how they should feel about their events or characters. Barry Lyndon is one such film. It observes life with stony detachment and we examine its breathtaking shots as we would a painting rather than a movie. In this film, a picture really is worth a thousand words.

    I want to be embraced the way David embraced his guitar during his performance of ‘Burning Down the House’. Oh, to be David Byrne’s guitar!
