    The Graduate

    ★★★★★

    Hiatus Note:

    I will be taking a long break from Letterboxd from now. For the next twelve months, I will not be reviewing another film. A part of it is that I currently do not have the motivating spark to write down my thoughts on films.


    On top of that, there have been a lot of stuff to deal with on a personal level. It's too much to handle, and where Letterboxd used to be part of my escape from…

  • Le Samouraï

    Le Samouraï

    ★★★★★

    Here we are, it's time for my 1200th review here on Letterboxd. There were a lot of films I could have chosen for this special occasion, but my choice fell on Jean-Pierre Melville's Le Samouraï. It has been a while since I last saw a Melville film, so I thought it was about time I finally checked out another one of his most iconic films.


    First and foremost, Alain Delon's performance is absolutely stellar. He can convey so much menace…

    Peggy Sue Got Married

    ★★★★½

    I had no idea what to expect from Peggy Sue Got Married before sitting down and watching it. I only knew about who was starring in it and that Francis Ford Coppola directed it. However, it turned out to be a pleasant surprise; it's not just a nostalgia trip, it is also oddly enough a predecessor to many of the time loop films we have these days (you know, the "Groundhog Day genre" that they are also known as) with…

  • Fight Club

    Fight Club

    ★★★★

    Fight Club is one of those films that most either consider an absolute incontrovertible masterpiece, or a film that will just appear more and more pretentious as you get older. I find myself in a bit of a minority about this film as someone who finds this film incredibly well-made, but I also see that it's not nearly as deep a film as its fans make it out to be.


    Hell, I even disagree with Chuck Palahniuk's assessment that the…

    My Top 100 Favorite Films - #1


    More than a year and a half on Letterboxd, and now with my 200th review. This shouldn't be something to celebrate, as others might have written an amount of reviews that dwarfs mine in that same time span, but I just can't resist honoring my own ego. Maybe I just like being an asshole ;)


    Is The Graduate the most technically impressive film ever made? Is it the film with the deepest subject…

    My Top 100 Favorite Films - #26


    After his brother Joe's (Kyle Chandler) death, Lee Chandler (Casey Affleck), a janitor living in Boston, becomes the legal guardian of Joe's son Patrick, which forces Lee to temporarily move from Boston to Manchester-by-the-Sea, a town that still carries haunting memories of a tragic past for Lee. Written and directed by Kenneth Lonergan, Manchester by the Sea is a film that deals with grief, the isolation it can cause, and the absurdities of…
