  • The Vast of Night

    The Vast of Night

    ★★★★

    The Vast of Night, more than any other low budget indie in recent memory, showcases how little can truly go a long way. Framed through hazy visual and audio distortion, effortlessly swooping through the quaint Twilight Zone-esque town, relying on the sense of the implied rather than the literally defined, all while painting a vivid and unsettling picture through minimal presentation and resources.

    The interesting thing about The Vast of Night's presentation is how its minimalism rarely feels like an…

    The Lighthouse

    ★★★★★

    Robert Eggers has done it again. His debut feature The Witch struck a chord in the arthouse horror scene and felt like a mere stepping stone for things to come, and i'm happy to report that The Lighthouse continues his stylistic trademarks while also fully creating its own identity.

    Weathering with You

    ★★

    I'm starting to think that Your Name was just lightning in a bottle, because I have yet to find a Makoto Shinkai film that's been as consistent in firing on all cylinders.

    Weathering With You feels like a collection of gorgeous melodramatic setpieces that could work well as desktop wallpaper fodder, but doesn't really work as a cohesive film that has something singular to say. Instead, its collection of haphazard ideas all coverge into a rather muddled experience that feels…
