    Good Morning

    ★★★★½

    Good Morning reminded me of the simple joy of being alive in a space with people you love. Nothing lasts forever, however dramatic or fantastic, and that ephemerality is beautiful in it's fleeting moments.

    The characters feel so real that I felt like all of them were a part of me; if not now then as a memory. Especially the boys. Just the natural way the little brother follows his big brother around (despite him not necessarily being the exemplification…

    Landscape in the Mist

    ★★★★★

    This film is achingly captivating.

    It empathises with my inner state of being on so many levels. The idea of chasing after a lost dream with no end, blind to anything of the contrary. As long as the journey continues the journey cannot fail. A sense of belonging wherever one lands, without ever feeling at home.

    As a Greek who grew up in England, I've always felt like I'm being pulled in many directions at once; kept In place only by the opposing forces. Landscape in the Wind is that feeling.

    The Mitchells vs. The Machines

    ★★★★

    Damn that was a fun ride from start to finish. Lord and Miller are cementing themselves as animation powerhouses and they're carrying Sony along with them (to be fair to them, I've been infatuated since Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs).

    Even when they aren't directing, you can feel their fingers pressing all the right buttons. They have consistently produced the funniest films this century (from America). They are self-aware, zany, original, and manage to not come off as surly…

    ★★★★★

    This film fucking rocks.

    It is rare for me to revisit a film that was so formative for me as such a young age, and it be this good. There are so many brilliant pieces in the jigsaw that feel like they're put in just for me. It introduced me to Jack Black when I was 10 years old, as well as a bunch of music I had no idea existed. It's in a school; I also went to school!…

  • Sound of Metal

    Sound of Metal

    ★★★★½

    Addicted to love. Addicted to control. Addicted to sound.

    Addicted to the distraction of all these things, keeping us from ourselves, and the feelings that rise to the top of the bowl when everything else is eliminated from the minds soup. We watch Ruben struggle to accept his new reality with every fibre of his (incredibly sexy) being. He is barred from his self-designated place in the world, where he feels a significance beyond his flesh. Like an audial chameleon,…

    Love and Monsters

    ★★★½

    This was just really fun actually. I found it cathartic that the film was well executed enough and had so few stupid mistakes that I could just genuinely turn my brain off and enjoy myself. Most important to this state of movie-watching serenity, is that there was seldom a line of dialogue that was annoying. Yes the premise of the film is dumb, but it leans in to that in all the right ways, and attempts to portray the state…
