  • The Double Life of Véronique

    The Double Life of Véronique

    ★★★★★

    melancholia, our follower, seeping in our bones. we struggle, thrash and scream, but it's deep inside our homes. our ribcage, heart and stones. the quarter life bemoans. we die and wake and die again, it won't leave us alone. he won't leave us alone, a prison and the page. brass bars chime in glass heart time, a bird inside cage. entrapped in amber mage; magic, burning sage. sepia strangling, threaded, tangling; vingetted golden age. wrapped up in our names. entrenched…

    Call Me by Your Name

    ★★★★★

    you say it without saying it; reading between the lines. smoking cigarettes, in open air, we're dying on the vines. our existence intertwines. we were meant to meet after all. you build me up and cut me down, am i nothing? one inch tall? there's magic in the fall, but it's deadly, and this you know. i plant the seed and watch the pot, i wait for it to grow. there's fracture in the flow, you interrupt my life. you…

  • Vive L'Amour

    Vive L'Amour

    ★★★★½

    translating to "long live love", vive l'amour has been high on my watchlist ever since i read about its prominence to the taiwanese second new wave film movement. this film movement is in my top 5 that i'm most interested in seeing more of, so i thought i had to watch such a notable work. this film is not unlike other slower paced movies that i've seen -- such as 3-iron, vagabond, chungking express or, by the same director, goodbye,…

    task 52 - watch a film that is about graduating or moving to college

    i'm so sorry but i did not vibe with this movie at all. it was insufferable, nothing clicked for me in this whatsoever. i actually can't fathom why this is so praised or popular. everyone is a caricature of a stereotype, the script and dialogue is horrendous, i…
