    Carol

    ★★★★★

    merry Christmas. a warning that this is one of those "rare" occasions where my feelings and personal stories become my review so leave now if it isn’t your thing. I tell myself I'll try to do this less next year. it is my 10th review of Carol, my 1001st review on Letterboxd. so what does one do and how does a sleepless person write badly about the same film for the 10th time? I call it "This Carol Rewatch, or…

  • Undine

    Undine

    ★★★★½

    a mythical ethereality, Undine is an iteration of habits and histories abound love's inevitable doom. with one of Bach's* beautiful musical pieces undulating its foreboding atmosphere, the Greek myth as its centrepiece holds its characters tightly captive. their fates fastened, appended by a twist which gives the story its bittersweet modernity. a reverberation of romantic lore and fable's place in our brief lives and affairs. while the tragic romance dips in calm waters at first, it is eventually seduced to…

  • My First Summer

    My First Summer

    ★★★★

    The warm breeze of adolescent infatuation thrives in the gentle sway of a growing attachment. Affection dips their bodies in the bathing light of the sun, cooling themselves with a tasteful smoothie of desire, taking a splash, a dive in the waters of a sexual awakening. This is a flavour of an unforgettable, arcane summer dyed with an organic mauve of emotions.

    Grace, with her striking colours, pedals to a sanctuary of isolation where its inhabitant, colourless, orphaned Claudia, remains…

  • Glengarry Glen Ross

    Glengarry Glen Ross

    ★★★★

    “Glengarry Glen Ross” is an engrossing theatric of fraternal salesmanship. Four real estate salesmen are cramped together in a small office, pitted against each other, ranked by their worthiness through the appealing guise of revenue contribution and reward. The best salesman will get a Cadillac, the worst one will be sacked. Desperation, deception, and deceit are wielded by these men in order to sell these dream properties aggressively. While these advertised lands of paradise aim to entrap prospective buyers with…

  • Moonlit Winter

    Moonlit Winter

    ★★★★

    the heavy snowfall in Moonlit Winter piles up along the driveway and the streets and is laboriously shovelled and cleared out the next day only to pile up again. an allusion to feelings tucked in so long ago that ebbs and flows whenever the switch of memories is flicked on and off. 

    where there is vulnerability in communication through undelivered letters, words muttered in the air without a response, phrases written on paper without a reader, longing gushes ragingly amidst…

    National Theatre Live: Fleabag

    ★★★★½

    “you know, either everyone feels like this a little bit, and they're just not talking about it, or I'm completely fucking alone. which isn't fucking funny.”

    my thoughts, my thoughts, my thoughts...

    obviously I’m not able to catch the play at a theatre because I currently live in Narnia nor are there any screenings near me but I managed to find a copy somewhere. other than visiting a country last May I think watching the series is the only other…
