  • Babylon



    Babylon is a severe miscalculation on nearly all fronts, yet a partially exceptional film is forged out of its sheer grandiosity, carrying the movie to heights that surpass that of the actual quality and depth of the craft on display. Said grandiosity can only push the film forward for so long however, with the problem essentially being with Babylon peaking too early, both emotionally and in terms of its chaos, turning the majority of a three hour film into a…

    2001: A Space Odyssey


    2001: A Space Odyssey is a film that I would hesitate to call a favorite of mine, yet I can’t bring myself to give it anything less than a perfect score. There really is only one film that has ever tested the bounds of cinema and changed the art form as a whole, and that film is 2001: A Space Odyssey. This film is far more experimental than Kubrick is often given credit for. The long sections of bright imagery…

    Being John Malkovich


    I’m hesitant to admit that this is a good movie just out of the fear I have with being associated with Kaufman fans who circlejerk his works in every conversation and hail his writing as the most profound and intelligent concepts that have ever been written. If anything I think the movie works despite Kaufman’s occasionally shoddy screenplay, which i see as an effort by Kaufman to awkwardly pile a wide variety of ideas on top of each other, hoping…

    Enter the Void


    Once again an abundantly clear example of how Noé hates his audience, although this one makes up a little for the fact that it’s simply provocation without any empathy or worthwhile vision behind it with its ultimately ineffective, but resilient attempts at conveying a genuine sense of experimentation visually. Of course this admittedly fascinating approach to using the camera devolves into feeling like a simple gimmick due to Noé’s pure stubbornness and incompetency as a filmmaker, refusing to diversify the…

    The Shawshank Redemption


    On paper, The Shawshank Redemption checks off all the boxes. Good writing, even pacing, with superb performances, but what causes my viewpoint to not match the consensus on this film is the simple fact that this movie takes zero risks. Everything seen in this film has been done before in some capacity. There is such a little amount of unique characterization infused into the two lead characters, that I didn’t come away from the film feeling like I knew anything…

    Drive My Car


    My thoughts on Drive My Car feel pretty complicated right now, at least to me. My rating, although not a negative one, is clearly off of the consensus if you look at the ratings graph. I obviously didn’t hate Drive My Car, but I can’t remember being this mind-numbingly bored during a film in a long time. The subject matter just didn’t interest me in any way, and the whole film really revolved around this uninteresting theater production that I…
