    Chances are, if you’ve ever read a ‘Greatest Movies Ever’ list, Citizen Kane is on there. Directed by Orson Welles (in his first rodeo), the 1941 drama was so groundbreaking that it still has critics and cinephiles discussing it to this day. Thanks to its character’s story, its stunning cinematography and more, the film has maintained its strong legacy, which is, perhaps, just as legendary as the troubled history behind its making. Kane has undergone many controversies, primarily because of…

    Movie #7

    “A man like him mends his ways and makes a tearful reunion with his mother,” is how the film describes our protagonist, just released from jail and longing to find his mother. Miwa Nishikawa, a protégé of the acclaimed director Hirokazu Koreeda, tells the story of an ex-convict adjusting to life after prison, with veteran actor Koji Yakusho starring in the lead. It is a premise that is familiar, but always with much potential, especially…

    This short film contains everything about Bolivia: culture, history, folklore, capitalism, the privatization of water, clashes between the people and police, corruption, greed, and unity.

    ★★★

    Alan Ball is just one of two screenwriters this year who’s had a decline of quality in writing, with the other being Sorkin (coincidentally, they also direct their own scripts).

    Uncle Frank honestly deserves to be at lower score, because it is plagued with so much unoriginality that stories like these don’t deserve. But Paul Bettany fuels the movie with the full emotion it needs, giving it some resonance. I’m honestly happy to see him star in more leading roles too.

  • Ma Rainey's Black Bottom

    Ma Rainey's Black Bottom

    ★★★★

    I was watching a movie with my father when a friend on Facebook tagged me on a post with a headline that was hard to believe: Chadwick Boseman had passed away. Even after three months, it’s difficult to come to the realization that Ma Rainey’s Black Bottom is his final film performance.

    Boseman’s last movie is indeed a great watch. Ma Rainey has some strong effort in adding cinematic charm to a pretty terrific script, something that the last August Wilson adaptation,…
