    somehow endearing despite the graphic amount of early 2000s rawr xD emo aesthetic

    old slavic women have such an enduring and sacred spirit... god bless them all

    Tulip Fever


    this was so disappointing because almost every scene looked like a LITERAL dutch golden age painting but at the expense of a coherent plot and developed characters :( disrespectful

    lil freaky but mostly soft vhs nostalgia comedy about how people are actually decent if you let them be? exactly what indie cinema needs right now

  • Cold War

    Cold War


    this is just nervous praise but pawlikowski captures so naturally how state enforced cruelty and barriers fractured our parents and grandparents until they became so bitter, dispossessed in any nation, and left with folkloric shards of a national identity after the communist state was dissolved. 

     really cold war encapsulates that truth of how until the end of time- slavic longing and slavic suffering will always go hand in hand. such a sparkling piece of work with a better soundtrack, yet simultaneously as rough and blown out as its characters and setting. in summary: i was fucking devasted and full of joy at all times ahh!!

    mozart: *does anything*

    not even 90s julia roberts could make manipulative sociopathy romantic and quirky

    Band of Outsiders


    "isn't it strange how people never form a whole? they never come together. they remain separate. each goes his own way, distrustful and tragic."

    something magic about three ditzy losers blowing smoke and jazz dancing their way through the parisian périphérie & also the louvre

  • Outlaw King

    Outlaw King


    the bit of dialogue about robert de brus and edward i bonding after training a monkey to ride a horse amd shoot a bow and arrow was really the peak of 14th c. friendship

    Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse


    listen. i hate superhero movies more than any other genre but this was witty? endearing? actually funny? modern live action cape movies would be so much more disgestable if approached this way!!!

    violent cruelty is definitely sexier when all the instigators are wearing corsets and powdered wigs

  • The Doors

    The Doors


    rough edged enough to stand out from most plastic wrapped modern biopics; but still choked by an inability to make its lead an actual 3D human who has more to offer than showy binge drinking and angsty poetry. this movie really proved that jaden smith was right when he said The Biggest Flex Anyone Will Ever Have Is Dying. 6.5/10
