    ★★★★★

    Babylon in a cinematic experience built not quite exactly like anything else out there. This is heaven for fans of cinematic maximalism. All of the carefully orchestrated extravagance of the direction, cinematography, pacing and musical virtuosity of classics like La La Land and Whiplash are distilled into the most daring, ambitious, power-casted and larger than life version of the typically reliable "love letter to cinema" subgenre of film. This was three hours of Chazelle forcefully pressing his finger down on…

I really do have a soft spot for any kind of film or TV…

    On one hand, it's pretty shocking to see that such a confidently presented and steady film is actually the feature debut for director Darius Marder. On the other hand, it's almost expected that this could be the case when a film feels so unique and fresh. This is a viewing experience so intimate that you might feel almost voyeuristic while watching. This is down to a few things mostly: the cinematography style, a decidedly naturalistic tone that almost feels like…
