  • Mad God

    Mad God

    I see a lot of people commending this film for the masterful craftsmanship of 30 long and meticulous years, but not nearly enough talking about the film's meanings and messages. The plot is in the background, but some truly dense ideas unfold through purely visual storytelling. Every intricate element of the world-building begets curiosity about the unspoken but familiar histories of these otherworldly lands. To me, Mad God is a damning condemnation of any God that may be, for being…

    Burning

    This review may contain spoilers. I can handle the truth.

    Burning is a meticulous masterwork which feels like a strong gush of intoxicating wind. As in, it moves all around you, it envelopes your intrigue, and it keeps flowing. Oftentimes, it feels like reading a long book. The directions in which it over-pours sometimes don't necessarily make concrete narrative sense, but there's a sort of natural purposefulness to everything that happens to Jong-su in the film.

  • Chhapaak

    Chhapaak

    In Bollywood, usually three kinds of films dominate nowadays. And more often than not, you will find Akshay Kumar in them.

    When I went to watch Chhapaak to the theater, 3 films were playing, very conveniently ascribing to the 3 categories I was referring to above. The first, Tanhaji, was a cgi-heavy imitation of Western war films in style, with an Indian setting perfect for the overglorification of a legendary Hindu king. At any time, you can find a movie…
