    ★★★★★

    A broken self that dreams of something better in a meaningless existence. Repetitive shot experimentation. Bread and movies. Tone-shifts that changes this from fantastical, tense, soothing to disturbing. Combination of a subtly maximalist and full-on minimalist style. Entering the mirror where reality is hazy. White awakening; the repetitive dreams, maybe these will make you dream of something better while the beautiful ambient music plays. This movie is a masterpiece, though it depends on the viewer who watches it. What will happen after the car trip? "I'm not sure." he answers. This is the phrase that makes up the whole film.

    Last Life in the Universe

    ★★★★★

    Where must one be in the stratosphere? The last of your own. The infinite sadness never goes away, it's just aching through the room. Flying objects and interchangeable people. Loneliness in an unpredictable world where international connections are quick, we may not know everyone, but there needs to be someone out there to rub and create sparks with. The ever closing loneliness here calls back to Edward Yang's The Terrorizers while the genre; romance aspects call back to Wong Kar-wai…

    The Magic Hour

    ★★★★★

    Sent to the movies from the past that we loved. The different kinds of shooting. Influenced by Kitano as there is no script in the fictional film being made. A magical; packed cast that was picked because of the various genres associated with them, relating to their parts here. Hints of bloody dark comedy despite the restraints, producing an on edge feel. The confidence in the fictional need to be filmmakers and the filmmaker of this shows, it's a wonderful…

    Summer Vacation 1999

    ★★★★

    Love and friendship in a specific vacation during a specific time. Inspired casting. This has a little trouble pinpointing it's focus on the topics at hand. Hard to define dreams. Sitting near the waterfall with a rabbit. Surprising use of well-detailed futuristic technology. But then something repeats, all of a sudden.

    Fallen Angels

    ★★★★★

    Loveless. Heightened reality stylization. Song 1818 wishes someone to forget. Fuzzed out romantics. Haze in bullets. Time is dependent on shutter speeds. The ethereal longest nights moonlighting their dreams. I can't forget it (oh). Expired pineapple changes people. Final victories, last lizards and fallen angels. Finding the eternal rose. To those whose fathers will be missed and to those whose elbows can't create sparks, this is a motorcycle ride to a road named warmth.

    Cure

    ★★★★★

    A city on fire of invisible flames. Bark psychosis. There's a force here that wants everyone dead. Kiyoshi Kurosawa asks: who are you? The biggest joke of it all: nothing. Philosophy to the max. Hypnotizing to your true self. A lighter that never goes out, it only does so by an unknown black substance, only to linger on in you forever, this is what Cure is. Violence here isn't like how other films do it, just the cause of something that cannot be controlled. Kiyoshi Kurosawa is a director that needs more recognition. My favorite post-rock horror film.
