    The Tourist

    ★★★★

    before sunrise meets murder on the orient express meets.. inception? i saw this in theaters when it came out, and i didn't understand the ending then. i can confirm that my brain has evolved since 2010, and i do understand it now, which i'm happy about. what i do *also* understand is that angelina jolie is one of the most gorgeous women ever to grace this earth. also i don't usually find johnny depp "attractive" or "hot", because most of the stuff i've seen him in, his character goal is not to be a dreamboat. but this time.... yeah. he was smoldering.

    this movie was not fun. this movie was atrocious. this movie actually caused me to lose the will to live while watching it. this movie was one of the worst things i've ever seen put to screen. as the runtime drug on and on (it's not even a long movie), i was yelling at no one in particular to "please, god, please, let…

    recommend me a film here

    short term 12 is beautiful, it's right up my alley, and it's brilliant in the way it tackles its thematic material. the storytelling devices are also extremely useful here. it's a cohesive collection of deep, meaningful moments that flesh out to make an incredibly poignant plot, and an impactful group of characters, who all face their own flawed realities and set of obstacles. i really think this film is a gem. it…
