    The Worst Person in the World

    ★★★★½

    Julie (portrayed beautifully by Renate Reinsve) is a very effective protagonist, in that she's deeply flawed and despite making choices that can seem really questionable, I as a viewer always understood and rooted for her.

    The only other Joachim Trier film I've seen is OSLO, 31. AUGUST, the inaugural film in the director's "OSLO TRILOGY," which is very different from THE WORST PERSON IN THE WORLD, the third film. I appreciate how, for lack of a better word, real the…

    Dune

    ★★★★

    I've a love–hate relationship with writer-director Denis Villeneuve, as I'm fond of four of his films (Incendies, Prisoners, Enemy and Blade Runner 2049) and not really a fan of others (Arrival and Sicario), but at the end of the day, I appreciate any artist who's willing to take risks.

    P.S. It's my birthday today.

    FIVE EASY PIECES is truly a forgettable classic. From beginning to end it’s a simple film with the moodiest man. Jack Nicholson is definitely the leading star and actor of it. Whenever he’s on screen, you can’t take your eyes off him. Those handsome charming boyish looks and that voice, wow! Always admired his terrific extraordinary natural talent as an actor. It's pretty much a waitressʼ nightmare to run into a customer like Robert. Expertly played by Jack. It's a…

    Minari

    ★★★★★

    My face is beaming. I'm cock-a-hoop at watching Minari THIS early, because I've been anxious as hell and just wanted to watch Minari as soon as possible, and this is one of the best films I’ve seen this year that’s in the top four for me. From the opening moments, I knew I was in for a special movie. Director Lee Isaac Chung is hands down a major talent to keep your eyes on. How he tells this story feels…
