• Persona

    Persona

    β˜…β˜…β˜…β˜…β˜…

    Nobody and I mean nobody understands the human soul and the human condition better than Bergman. Persona is fascinating, intense, mysterious, complicated and quite enjoyable I should say. Once again, I have fallen deeply in love with Bergman's close-ups.

  • Taxi Driver

    Taxi Driver

    β˜…β˜…β˜…β˜…β˜…

    There isn't anything to say that hasn't been said about this masterpiece. Simply put, Taxi Driver is a fine example of masterclass filmmaking. Films just don't get better than this and you just have to sit down and accept that, marvel fanboys.

  • Promising Young Woman

    Promising Young Woman

    β˜…β˜…β˜…β˜…Β½

    Absolutely overwhelmed by this film. Now I'm gonna be totally honest here, I did not in a million years expect this to be THIS good. Emerald Fennell and Carey Mulligan deserve all of the praise they are getting as what they have created is a bold, provocative, never done before, badass film that its story is not only unique, relevant and powerful, but it's also aesthetically very pleasing. I sure know who and what film I will be rooting for this awards season.

  • The Godfather: Part II

    The Godfather: Part II

    β˜…β˜…β˜…β˜…β˜…

    I've said it before and I'll say it again, The Godfather Part II is way superior than its predecessor. Still, it's no Goodfellas.

  • One, Two, Three

    One, Two, Three

    β˜…β˜…β˜…β˜…Β½

    An absolutely incredible, hilarious political satire. One, Two, Three benefits from its super fast pace, a flawless screenplay and an electrifying James Cagney to create one of the finest comedies ever. Billy Wilder just does not miss.

  • Funny Games

    Funny Games

    β˜…β˜…β˜…β˜…Β½

    Brutal, disturbing, provocative and mind-blowing. Michael Haneke's Funny Games is a film I won't forget about anytime soon. Holy fuck.

  • The Godfather

    The Godfather

    β˜…β˜…β˜…β˜…Β½

    It's no goodfellas but it's still pretty good.

  • The Children's Hour

    The Children's Hour

    β˜…β˜…β˜…β˜…Β½

    Audrey Hepburn and Shirley MacLain give their absolute best in this William Wyler film, managing to really connect with their characters so well. And God knows how much I hated the children while watching this, which means that they also gave powerful performances. Y'all should really watch this...

  • Ocean's Eleven

    Ocean's Eleven

    β˜…β˜…β˜…β˜…

    Ocean's Eleven is definitely not your typical heist movie. It's so entertaining, funny and fast-paced thanks to it's stellar hot cast, Steven Soderbergh's exceptional direction, and brilliant editing.

  • Hereditary

    Hereditary

    β˜…β˜…β˜…β˜…Β½

    So much better and scarier the second time watching it. Hereditary is the true embodiment of a great horror movie. Ari Aster has established himself as one of the finest directors out there, and Toni Collette easily gave the best performance of 2018, absolutely flawless.

  • The Young Girls of Rochefort

    The Young Girls of Rochefort

    β˜…β˜…β˜…β˜…Β½

    Easily one of the greatest musicals ever made. The Young Girls of Rochefort is a delightful, beautiful and colorful film that is also emotionally affecting. The songs, the choreography, the cast, the direction, everything was so wonderful and magical. I just love this film so much.

  • Life Is Beautiful

    Life Is Beautiful

    β˜…β˜…β˜…

    So I finally watched this and I... didn't like it?


    Roberto Benigni's Life Is Beautiful is different than any other Holocaust movie ever made, not special, just different. I kinda admire the way Benigni approached the subject as he adds comedy and humor into it but that in general, didn't work for me. I guess the main problem for me was that I wasn't moved as I thought I would be while I was watching. But besides all that, I do appreciate Benigni's intentions and even his performance, wouldn't say Oscar worthy but he still gave a pretty good performance.
