    She Dies Tomorrow

    ★★

    I’ll pretend I know what the hell just happened in this :)

  • Nomadland

    Nomadland

    ★★★★½

    Gorgeous portrait of loneliness, loss and the struggle behind moving on. It’s incredibly rare that a film is able to give you a new perspective on life but I feel Nomodland accomplishes that with the slightest of ease thanks to Zhao’s masterful work behind the camera and McDormand at her absolute best in front of it. So draining but so, so worth it.

  • Tenet

    Tenet

    ★★★★½

    Don’t try to understand it.

    One of the most impressive and mind boggling displays of filmmaking ever, and I don’t think there’s a single director out there that could’ve pulled this off except for Nolan. There’s not much I can say that hasn’t been said already apart from the fact it’s really not that confusing if you pay attention but I promise you, Washington’s going to be the guy for the next few decades to come. Incredible.

  • Mysterious Skin

    Mysterious Skin

    ★★★★½

    Name a film that deals with the topic of PTSD better than this... there isn’t one but I’ll wait. Incredible performances from Brady Corbet & JGL.

  • Soul

    Soul

    ★★★★

    Probably Pixar’s most inventive film of the last decade. Beautiful animation, heartfelt story, a relatable protagonist and the gorgeous sound of Jazz - as someone who’s struggled to find the appeal of Pixar’s films over the last decade (Toy Story 4 excluded) I found this to be a breath of fresh air and one I’d highly recommend watching if you’re feeling lost in the world currently. We all deserve to be here, we are all good enough.

  • The Perks of Being a Wallflower

    The Perks of Being a Wallflower

    ★★★★★

    It’s a Christmas Movie.

  • The Imposter

    The Imposter

    ★★★★

    This is the craziest shit I’ve ever seen. Man really said “I’m built different” not once, not twice, but over FIVE HUNDRED times. I just looked at his Wikipedia page and apparently he had 5 kids with his wife and in 2017 she left him and took them all with her and that’s the last we’ve heard from him, I’m so intrigued I love this so much.

  • The Way Back

    The Way Back

    ★★★½

    You’d be hard pressed to find someone who can direct an underdog story as well as Gavin O’Connor. Taken for face value it’s a great sports movie but alongside that it’s also an emotional look at alcoholism lead brilliantly and personally by Ben Affleck in arguably his best performance since Gone Girl. Love it.

  • The King of Staten Island

    The King of Staten Island

    ★★★★

    I’m on the pursuit of happiness... 🎶 🎶 🎶 

    I love Pete Davidson, man.

  • Remember Me

    Remember Me

    ★★★

    Quite the tearjerker. I don’t care much for the ending although it packs a punch, the real attraction here is Rob Pat... the potential has always been there, it’s about time he became a beloved figure among everyone.

  • The Farewell

    The Farewell

    ★★★★

    It’s the feeling of receiving a thousand warm hugs and kisses from the person you love most in the world wrapped up into 90 minutes. I love every second of it.

  • The Hunt

    The Hunt

    The Purge but with liberals and conservatives and whatnot, and to absolutely nobody’s surprise makes out to be one of the stupidest films of the year. The whole thing should’ve stayed in the drafts.
