    The Secret in Their Eyes

    ★★★★★

    The titular phrase comes off both as a metaphor and symbolic representation for gaze and how it drives the narrative. Opening with a blurred, hazy sequence that we'll return to later in the film, it shifts to Esposito's (Darin's character) eyes. This is the central point of the film as memories play a larger role here- what we see or rather most of what we see, we only remember the visuals that impress themselves upon us. It doesn't matter if…

    When it comes to Christopher Nolan, there are a lot of people who just blatantly dismisses his works because it functions in the mainstream.

    "This is to call my dead friends back from the night."

    So writes Ronny Sen, the director of Cat Sticks. The opening line reverberates throughout, because it is in essence, a story about a bunch of people who are living, but not alive. Set in a post-apocalyptic timeline (although the visual cues and dialogues suggest somewhere around 2006), Cat Sticks follows a group of drug addicts in rain-drenched Calcutta. Alongside other things, Cat Sticks feels a firsthand account, drawn from…

    It's crazy, it's freakishly brilliant!
    Hands down, the best film I've watched this year and I wonder if anything will be able to top it.
