    Promising Young Woman

    ★★★★½

    I did not know what to expect when I sat down to watch Promising Young Woman along with my older sister. I had read some rather mixed reviews here on Letterboxd, but seen some more positive videos about the film on YouTube (which is the point where I should remind you guys that I'm rarely, if ever, affected by spoilers before I watch a film). So I am therefore pleasantly surprised to watch a film like Promising Young Woman, which…

    Here it is, my 1000th review. For such an occasion, only one film could be fitting in my mind. That film being Federico Fellini's , probably the most influential metafictional film in cinematic history. I have not seen in a very long time, since 2013 to be exact. It was actually one of the first films I ever saw via Netflix! Think about that, the Danish Netflix actually had Fellini's most famous film in its library at one point…

    Sound of Metal

    ★★★★½

    Quickie:

    Sound of Metal got even better for me on this rewatch, as I appreciated the performances even more, and the sound editing became even more effective, as I found more points for me to personally relate to sudden alteration to Ruben's way of life, in comparison to some of life-altering events I have had in my own life. Plus, I could further appreciate the central point of Ruben's character development; that he should learn to embrace his new lease…

    ★★★★½

    I have a confession to make before I go into my review. I usually can't take it seriously when British actors are acting tough in most films and shows. There are some rare cases (mostly when it comes to characters played by Tom Hardy) where it does work, but most of the time, it just feels like polite men with funny accents trying to show you how "rough" they are (also a reason why I could barely get into a…

    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 - #23


    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…
