    Triangle of Sadness

    ★★★★½

    Are we enjoying ourselves?

    -Waiter-

    Yes, thanks very much.”

    -Carl-

    Triangle of Sadness is a maddening, chaotic, and oft disorienting film that offers a satirical, but cutting critique on the disparity of the “haves” and “have-nots”. Triangle of Sadness pushes and subjects it’s audience into a *literal* dizzying assortment of grotesque, frustrating, and stomach-churning scenarios; all of which serve as a litmus test gauging, (like the detestable characters on screen), how much we as the consumer are willing to accept/watch…

  • The Menu

    The Menu

    ★★★★

    This is…well…Something very special.”

    -Bryce-

    The Menu is a deliciously wicked and meticulously crafted multi-course meal. The Menu is served on a dark, satirical, and provocative plating; with a splash of brutality here, a pinch of horror there, and nice sprinkle of dark humor to really top off the palate. 

    The Menu is….well…something very special. 

    The Appetizer: (Cinematography)

    The Menu is shot in a underscored and tonally bleak manner. The cinematography here is an exercise in simplicity that utilizes its…

    Aftersun

    ★★★★½

    I don’t know, I guess I just feel a bit down or something.”

    -Sophie-

    Aftersun is a beautiful, tender, and utterly crushing contemplative journey through the tainted and wishful memories of a bereaved daughter. Aftersun is a heavy and emotionally draining outing, with each scene slowly unraveling and revealing the darkness that casts a large shadow over the film’s entirety. It’s uneasy. It’s surreal, almost dreamlike. What kind of dream is the question. A nightmare or a fantasy? Charlotte Wells…

  • Bones and All

    Bones and All

    ★★★★½

    I don’t know whether to cry, or scream, or laugh, or what.”

    -Maren-

    Bones & All is a grisly, erotic, and shockingly delicate coming-of-age story. Bones & All watches like a modern, but perverse Shakespearean tragedy. Love and lust. Desire and disgust. A allegorical tale of unchecked “appetites” (wink, wink) and the tormented beauty within the recklessness of the adolescent heart. 

    Bones & All is an assault on the senses, biting, ripping, and tearing its away across cinematic genres. Truly. “I don’t know…

    All Quiet on the Western Front

    ★★★★★

    Bravo! Bravo! Yes!

    -Paul-

    All Quiet on the Western Front is a sobering WWI epic that dutifully encapsulates the horrors, emotions, and doldrums of war. While tonally bleak and grim, the beauty manages to shine through, delivering one of the most effective and provocative war sagas to date. 

    To that I say: Bravo! Bravo! Yes! What a crowning achievement!

    Edward Berger has an eye for intimacy. All Quiet on the Western Front by all accounts is touted for its grandiose…

  • Black Panther: Wakanda Forever

    Black Panther: Wakanda Forever

    ★★★★

    “TChalla is dead, but that doesn’t mean he’s gone.”

    -Ramonda-

    Black Panther: Wakanda Forever is a welcomed deviation from the recent slog of cookie-cutter Marvel fare. Yes, it’s true. Black Panther: Wakanda Forever sports best in class, top-tier visuals and indulgent action sequences…BUT…The real victor comes via the shockingly heartfelt story that encompasses and honors everything Boseman and Black Panther built. 

    So yeah, “TChalla is dead, but that doesn’t mean he’s gone.” as a matter of fact, his spirit has…
