  • The Grand Budapest Hotel

    The Grand Budapest Hotel

    ★★★★★

    One of my all time favorites...

    The Grand Budapest Hotel is peak Wes Anderson, and it is one of those movies that I can watch over and over again. It also consistently puts such a gigantic smile on my face.

    Ralph Fiennes' performance as M. Gustave is one of my favorites ever. He is one of the most lovable, endearing, and hilarious characters that I've ever seen.

    The extravagant imagery and beautiful set design is such a delight to the…

    A Brighter Summer Day

    ★★★★★

    This was my first ever Edward Yang film, and of course I had to dive into his filmography with this 4 hour long journey. However, I have to say, it was all worth it in the end. This film is simply incredible, jaw-dropping, emotional, poignant, and had me floored. With a first half that spends so much time developing a multitude of characters, Yang absolutely delivered in the second half that featured one of the most jaw-dropping finales I've seen…

    Resurrection

    ★★★½

    Really loved how sinister and dark this was! Felt like I couldn't breathe for a good portion, and Rebecca Hall is incredible – especially in THAT monologue she delivers.

    I think this film should have ended after a very specific moment, but unfortunately it didn't, kept going, and kind of shot itself in the foot. I wasn't a huge fan of the final final conclusion – but overall I enjoyed this!

    Didn't think it'd be possible to top Shithouse for me, but wow...

    Cooper Raiff continues to surprise me in every way. This film is incredibly emotional, poignant, and so so relatable – just like Shithouse. Raiff knows young adult angst like no one else, and I'm so excited to follow his career.

    Stalker

    ★★★★★

    "How can I put a name to what it is that I want? How am I to know I don't want what I want or that I really don't want what I don't want? These are intangibles where the moment you name them, their meaning evaporates like jellyfish in the sun."

    So I hadn't even heard of Stalker until I joined Letterbox recently, but I had seen this film so much on people's "favorites" lists and had seen it get…

  • Uncut Gems

    Uncut Gems

    ★★★★½

    What a fucking adrenaline rush...

    Uncut Gems is exhilarating, immersive, ceaseless, and wouldn't let me breath for a god damn minute. I loved every minute of this, and I was just enjoying every fuck up that Adam Sandler made in this movie. He is terrific, and I hardly recognized him. You're telling me this is the same man that was in Jack And Jill and Grown Ups??

    And that ending...the entire theater GASPED. Holy shit, I was not expecting that.…
