    Encanto

    The epitome of a heartwarming and joyous viewing experience, Disney’s Encanto is a fantastic companion to an earlier 2021 release Luca, not only in the story told but because of the relatable characters at the center of the frame. Smaller in scale to other Disney animated features, the audience follows a less traditional story of self-discovery and acceptance that feels like it is coming from a different studio in its entirety. Bright colors and quirky characters are only mere additions to the magic on display, as the story itself fully immersed me into this world. Is this how people feel when they watch Studio Ghibli films?

  • The Green Knight

    The Green Knight

    Lowery’s somber coming-of-age story is enthralling to say the very least, as it’s a technical masterpiece through and through. From the mesmerizing sound design to the gorgeous camerawork and costumes, The Green Knight immediately immerses the viewer in this world, taking over all senses as we follow Patel’s character Gawain on his quest. Including some haunting scenes not only because of the multitude of hardships and struggles that this character faces but also because of the themes discussed, The Green…

    The Worst Person in the World

    Reminiscent of multiple stories to depict identity and love, Trier’s The Worst Person in the World was not the film I was expecting based on the title alone. As others have noted, Trier’s narrative is similar to Before Sunrise or Normal People, however, his approach in the use of chapters to structure the film was accomplished with much more depth and emotion than anticipated, based on these comparisons. On top of that, the build-up to the conclusion was heartbreaking as…

    Turning Red

    Getting past the uncomfortable and incredibly cringe first 5 minutes, Turning Red takes an interesting approach in exploring identity and family expectations that unfortunately didn’t always stick the landing. Maybe it’s my disconnect to the main character and her specific situation, but I wasn’t enraptured as much as anticipated, even when many parts of the story are familiar. Seeing as this film is coming from the same person behind the short Bao, this story seems like an extension of what…

    Minari

    Once again, I’m at a loss for words. I feel like I say that often, but in this case, Minari has left me speechless. I’ve been highly anticipating this film ever since I started hearing praise late last year and am glad that I finally got to be in on the hype. Having deeply personal connections to the story plays a huge factor in my love and admiration for this film, but setting these feelings aside, Minari is still a…

    Judas and the Black Messiah

    Judas and the Black Messiah is one of those films that has left me at a loss for words, as it was far better than I could have ever imagined. I cannot articulate how important this film is, and its powerful message needs to be seen by the masses. With a runtime of a little over 2 hours, this film surprisingly immediately sucks the viewer into the story and is an incredibly fast-paced viewing experience. My words cannot do it…
