  • Leviathan

    Leviathan

    "All power is from God. Where there's power, there's might."

    The ultimate feel-bad tragedy. People are selfish in general, but those in positions of power prove far more dangerous due to their capability of destroying lives with no remorse. Andrey Zvyagintsev demonstrates the corruption taking place in contemporary Russian politics while fleshing out his characters to increase Leviathan's severe impacts. Money triumphs over everything, the characters are powerless over the injustices against them, and there's nothing they can do except…

Although I was originally hesitant regarding the announcement of A Quiet Place: Part II due to how effective the first film's restrained nature was, I started to ease…

    Nobody

    "Who the fuck are you?"
    "Me? I'm nobody."

    Nobody is aware that it's venturing into familiar action territory. It has a strong understanding of its genre, it's aware of the John Wick films, and it knows it isn't breaking new ground. Rather than take itself seriously, Nobody goes all out and has fun.

    What makes Nobody surprisingly interesting is how it subverts the motivations of its protagonist Hutch. Rather than being forced back into a world of crime, Hutch is…
