    Jusq’ici tout va bien”

    The first time I saw this movie, I had so many thoughts that I wanted to write about, but I was so at loss of words that I was staring at a blank page. In La Haine we follow three men for almost exactly 24 hours, not knowing what happened to their friend that was heavily injured in police riots. But there is more lying beneath that. The three men, Vinz, Hubert and Sayid are all…

    When I first saw this, a couple of months ago, I didn’t really like it. It was my first Kubrick, and despite giving it a 4.5, I couldn’t say I loved it like so many others do. Then, this summer, I decided to watch all of Kubricks filmography. I got to know him as a person and as a filmmaker, and I grew to have a lot of respect for him and his films. 

    This time around, I can confidently…

    It goes without saying that Jean-Luc Godard is one of the most influential directors of all time and with just a debut feature he established his name in the history of cinema, changing the course of young filmmakers for years to come. The editing is really great, and I loved the cinematography. I think I really need to revisit this one because I couldn’t pay the attention I wanted to, but I still loved it.

    Actually love this so much. One of my favorite comedies. I love the acting. I LOVE LOVE LOVE the cinematography. I love how stylized everything is. Johnny Depp is fucking crazy and so so good. My only complaints are that #1 the effects of the drug are obviously really unrealistic and #2 I wish the craziness would’ve kept going in the 3rd act, I understand that there has to be a bit…

    ★★★½

    Raw, powerful and emotional; Shaka King’s latest feature is a gritty but realistic depiction of the real life events surrounding The Black Panther revolution in the 1960s. Now I have to say, I’m not familiar at all with the history of racism in the United States, so I won’t comment on how realistic everything actually is, but this movie just does so many things so well. The performances (Daniel Kayuula is genuinely one of the best actors working today), the…

    Wong’s movies are just so incredibly original, everything about this is interesting in it’s own way. I have to admit, 99% of the time I had no idea what was going on, but I still enjoyed what I was watching. I’ll be having that song stuck in my head for the next couple of weeks, that’s for sure!
