    Matangi / Maya / M.I.A.

    ★★★★½

    M.I.A. is one of the most important artists of our time.

    And despite my low expectations, given the fact that Maya herself didn't seem to be happy about the result and keeps roasting Steve at the press conferences, this film kinda proved worthy of her name.

    I think what it does really well is it answers the questions many people asked throughout her career which is: why won't she shut up? She's rich now, why won't she just sing her…

    Can we finally admit that Janet was always a better album artist than Michael? Fight me

    On the Beach at Night Alone

    While we're all sitting here thinking "holy shit, Hong is peaking right in front of our eyes, at age 56, what a man, what an inspiration", he's probably like "this ain't even my final form, plebs".

    A film of staggering beauty. It had this gorgeus darker edge to it which I really liked, due to the music, and the autumn/winter vibe, especially in Hamburg.

    I just really wish I could meet Kim Min-hee, so I can say hi and run away giggling.

    I was a bit uncomfortable at the beginning. It took a while to understand and accept what Lee Chang-dong is doing here. It's a ridiculously fine line he chose to balance on. But it really came together as it went on. All those moments when she gets up from the chair are captured with such elegance, it feels like the whole world stopped for a minute.
