    Alita: Battle Angel

    ★★★★★

    before alita remembers who she is, she knows that she cares. her first interaction outside of her father and nurse is one that demonstrates immeasurable empathy. she shares her food with a dog, showers him with affection, then instantly readies herself to defend him when a centurion appears. ido perceives alita's natural instincts as mindless and dangerous, he describes them as being "drawn to conflict without hesitation", yet it is apparent to the viewer that the movements alita's heart and…

    claire denis' identity, a white woman who grew up in french colonial africa, and how this impacts her approach to portraying cameroon is a fundamental aspect of what makes chocolat such an important film. the scene where luc, the most destabilizing white presence in the film, reads out an excerpt from a fellow colonizer regarding the psychological effects of colonialism on africans highlights this particularly well. the excerpt claims that inhabiting africa at length caused the author to experience the…

    i wasn't going to review this since my friend killed it. i'm still not going to review this. however, there are certain images that have lingered. i specifically want to talk about one: thana's habit. her decision to wear one to the party goes beyond the usual interpretations of seducing men through the illusion of innocence / the lure of corrupting the uncorrupted. after putting on her nun gear, thana sheds the optimism that compelled her to endure lengthy rants…

    'cause none of us are tryna play the victim
    any disrespect then retaliation, instant

    a loud thud is heard as a traffic light turns red and tommy cruises past it, the sound seemingly discordant with the gravity of the act. in a film focused on murder and drug-pushing, crimes that get you killed or locked up for life, hype williams declares that for a black man, it's all the same as something as innocuous as violating traffic laws. tommy's ensuing…

    this was unbearable. it's so fucking longgggg. diana's kids going "MUMMY!" in their brit accents took me out each time. MUMMY!!! MUMMY!!! furthermore, k stewart was just so sexless in this. they rly had one of the hottest women alive in royal family drip. i think that's a hate crime or something? she looks so inbred next to all the inbred brits in that clothing. bless her soul. maybe that was the point. the alice in wonderland esque depiction of…

    A Cop Movie

    ★★★★

    i briefly contemplated giving this half a star for making me cry about the lives of cops and labelling it as emotionally manipulative. clearly decided against that, but this is still a really difficult film to process. i'm not at the liberty to speak on mexican issues. i can only speak about what i've experienced, so that's what i'll go with. i am kenyan and spent fourteen of my nineteen years in nairobi. despite this, i don't know what number…
