    Nashville

    ★★★★★

    On the surface, Nashville is an exploration of the country music culture within the 1970s. It isn’t attempting to critique or even study the effects of society at the time but rather embrace them by simply showcasing how a city functions over the course of a few days. Constantly switching between those whose lives beautifully intertwine, it’s easy to find the film excessive or overcrowded, however, that’s the reality of how human beings live. A constant cycle in which everyone…

    Wildlife

    ★★★★½

    The title “Wildlife” is a reference and is utilized as poetic symbolism for nature and the constant cycles surrounding the organisms within it; the most obvious comparison I can make is taking the Brinson family and using it as a metaphor for an ecosystem. The father Jerry (Jake Gyllenhaal), the mother Jeanette (Carey Mulligan) and the son Joe (Ed Oxenbould) are the three essential components that form it. A significant conception revolving ecosystems is that each part has astronomical importance,…

    Shakespeare in Love

    ★★★½

    It’s been two years. Two years of hating, nagging and spreading nasty sentiment. Two years of calling it an all-time low and a ridiculous embarrassment. Revisiting Shakespeare in Love was not something I thought I’d ever plan on doing, but the truth is that the film is better than I, and most people, gave it credit for. Unfortunately, this film will always be grouped with its Oscar success and the fact that it prevailed over another film that is amongst…

    Morgan: A Suitable Case for Treatment

    David Warner doesn’t have either the chaotic energy or the thespian attitude to pull off this performance. The role he’s given is so rich, full of life and polished with opportunities to be unhinged in the most campy way but he doesn’t deliver on any front and it results in a surrealist comedy feeling boring which is not a sentence I would ever expect to say. Vanessa Redgrave is the reason as to why I watched this and she does…

    Encanto

    ★★½

    I appreciate the enthusiasm and passion behind this but it was rather generic and hit every single beat you would expect it to. I immediately grew concerned when the first song started as it seemed so sudden and appeared like a musical segment within a sitcom from the 2000s rather than one from a Disney film. The rest of the music felt the same way and I don’t think that the songs themselves are bad, they just feel implemented into…
