    Nobody Knows I'm Here

    ★★★★

    Film 86

    A good film full of heart, sadness, and the beauty of Southern Chile. The ending confrontation was so satisfying. Jorge Garcia is immense and great work from Luis Gnecco as always. Some of the edits were jarring and/or too artsy but any movie tinged with nostalgia, questioning, and sadness is made for me. Looking forward to the director’s next film.

    Diles la verdad. Era mi voz.

    Forgiveness isn’t required.

    Such a strangely formatted and oddly sourced doc. Steph shows up in the last act to reflect and it really takes off. The redemption arc is incredible.  Before that, it was a tough hang.

    Film 75

    Best feature film that I have seen released this year by far. Cristin Milioti should get an Oscar nod for that performance as things stand.  Really endearing and uplifting picture that makes your heart all warm and fuzzy. We all need that. Quick runtime, good chemistry between the leads, and genuinely funny. Glad I lucked into a Hulu free trial for this one.

    Not even Jeff Probst himself could snuff this movie’s 🔥 🔥 Holy shit Adèle Haenel!!!!!!! This movie is a slow burn but well worth it.

    This is what watching movies is all about. New stories. Layered meanings. Brilliant acting. Beautiful colors. Multiple viewings definitely encouraged.

    was the power of fire as a force that can give and take away life—a source of passion, chaos, and truth. Living one’s truth is so important, and if…
