    Before Sunrise

    ★★★★★

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

    Quite literally the most I would aspire to do in a blossoming relationship is to walk, and converse. To me, understanding someone's individual strengths, tenancies, sense of humour, past and passions is something so vital to human connection. Before Sunrise communicates these ideas through the two titulars, who spend their time with each other, knowing that they have an entire day ahead of them, where so much can happen. The idea of culminating two ideas of adventure together, such as…

    Mommy

    ★★★★★

    Not so long ago, I watched another film about the strange yet violent relationship between a mother and her son, it's called the Hillbilly Elegy. Whilst that film's visuals and parallels to previous scenes (in order to convey a message) felt on the nose and predictable, Mommy's imagery feels genuine, raw, and whenever the film utilises the classic parallel technique which mirrors another scene, it feels a lot more subtle and less cringe worthy, using carefully woven motifs, rather than…

    Alright, decided to give this one a review. Right. So some of you may or may not have noticed my binging of A24. Each film I have seen during my binge has literally taken seconds to upgrade to a 5/5. They're just that spectacular. This film honestly just riveted me, start to finish. I loved basically everything about it. The film's storytelling is so unique, it takes a little bit of time after watching the film to truly understand the…

    The Killing of a Sacred Deer

    ★★★★★

    A film highly emphasizing an individual’s decisions and the cruel fate which ensues, The Killing of a Sacred Dear was definitely an unpleasant yet incredibly unique experience, which I still don’t completely understand, but that is entirely a good thing. I’m already analyzing it in my head, some things are making more sense but it’s still so inhumanly layered, so much so it almost reaches the unfathomable storytelling of films such as The Lighthouse, The Shining and 2001. I mean,…

    I'm Thinking of Ending Things

    ★★★★½

    CHARLIE KAUFMAN YOU ABSOLUTE GENUIS 
    a film so unsettling, so thought provoking, with powering literature and a sense of hidden romance. This is the kind of film I want to see. Not exactly your every day film. I literally cannot compare this to anything. My praise for the utilization for the concept of time knows absolutely no bound. And look, whatever rating this film gets isn’t exactly solidified or inherent, because this is a very challenging film. It’s final act…

    TEN-et. Haha. 
    I loved this film, it pretty much gave me everything I expected, and despite the fact I didn’t understand too much, I didn’t actually want to. Nolan films are a ride, yet there are so many layers which the human mind couldn’t even touch.

    Now to get a little in depth into what I loved (without spoilers):
    The true strength of this film in my opinion was its story drive, that being the concept of time rupturing. This…
