    Chihayafuru Part III

    β˜…β˜…β˜…

    (Watched this as the part of opening ceremony of Japanese Film Festival 2018 in Bandung)

    Karuta is an old game based on the knowledge of old poetries, and it background as well as the main source of conflict among the characters. I had to see the previous parts before watching this. To be honest it was a weird choice to open a festival with. This film has enough amount of drama, decent acting, cameraworks are ok, it represents parts of Japanese culture well (maybe this is the main reason), overall It was an OK movie.

    I have been waiting to see Eighth Grade for, like, FOREVER, until finally I got to see it today.

    It's worth the wait.

    Kayla IS beautiful. I mean take a good look at her, she has good face features, beautiful eyes, long eyelashes. She can't see it through her acnes and insecurities. Pool party is a nightmare for her, but I don't think she's that bad, she's just slouch all the time.

    The camera works and editing exaggerate the abandonment…

    Heavy Trip

    So, I know virtually nothing about Scandinavian area except the name of the countries. But I enjoy Heavy Trip, it is hillarious.. Even the death scene is funny. 😌
    I care about every character. The way it exaggerates news that travels way too fast in a small town cracks me all the way through the scene
    Now I love "symphonic post-apocalyptic reindeer-grinding Christ-abusing extreme war pagan Fennoscandian metal" too.

    Searching

    I've always thought that people are just being cynical about how youth nowadays are inseparable with their monitors.
    Until I saw "Searching".
    Literally every frame is monitor, monitor, monitor, and another monitor! Guess what? It feels too "normal".
    It's awesome that Aneesh Chaganty can pull it off like that, and this is only his first full length feature film. I mean I can imagine that movie where all you see is another monitor can be boring.
    The thrill works seamlessly..…
