    The Worst Person in the World

    ★★★★★

    (2021 ranking)

    Well this blew me away, The Worst Person in the World not only boasts one of the best performances of the year, but it is easily one of the best films of 2021, if not the best. 

    Almost everything on display here is perfect. If I had a checklist of things I want from a film this fulfils every criteria. Great performances, fantastic story writing and character writing, solid direction, beautiful cinematography, feeling, impressive score and soundtrack, originality,…

    (Satoshi Kon ranking)
    (1997 ranking)

    Perfect Blue captures a perfect blur between reality and fiction. Satoshi Kon’s masterpiece shows exactly what you can achieve with animation. 

    World building and wonderment is left at the wayside for this anime, as Kon operates within the psychological thriller genre more so than any other animated film I’ve seen. It is cold, it is brutal, and it is mindfuckery at its most powerful. 

    But the deep dive into Mima’s psyche is made all the…

    (Terry Gilliam ranking)

    Criterion Challenge 31/52 - Watch a film with a spine #1-100

    Perhaps the best set design in a movie… ever? Brazil not only boasts this achievement, but has some really incredible ideas, amazing world-building and is probably Terry Gilliam’s finest hour. 

    This satirises important topics, with over-reliance on technology, it’s effects on society, plastic surgery, corporatism, bureaucracy and hyper-surveillance all critiqued by Gilliam in Brazil, and what makes the film even more striking is it’s still relevant…

  • Paris, Texas

    Paris, Texas

    ★★★★

    It was so amazing to see this in a cinema setting. The scenes with Travis and Jane talking on the phone in the peep show club are cinematic perfection and I could just feel everyone in the screening hanging on every word. 

    The way Paris, Texas has you laughing one minute and crying the next is masterful. There aren’t two scenes similar in terms of tone or the emotions they evoke and so it keeps you on your toes and…

    (2022 ranking)

    Far far better than I had anticipated. For the amount of reviews slating this I thought I was going to be getting another Thor: The Dark World. 

    I really enjoyed this. I can definitely see it’s flaws but whereas others may not be so quick to overlook them, I don’t actually think they detract too much from the movie to spoil it at all. 

    Christian Bale’s Gore the God Butcher is a fantastic…

    (Robert Eggers ranking)
    (2022 ranking)

    A brutal unwavering spectacle that showcases Robert Eggers at the peak of his powers, The Northman may not be exactly what I expected but it is certainly one of the best of the year so far. 

    The story at its centre is a simplistic tale of revenge, and so it relies on its storytelling, visuals, setting and direction to stand apart. And it is within these four aspects where the film excels. 

    Some of the…
