  • Portrait of a Lady on Fire

    Portrait of a Lady on Fire


    This film is absolutely astonishing. I don’t think love has been portrayed in a film as well as Portrait of a Lady on Fire did. It sums up perfectly what it means to love someone, starting out with awkward looks and then slowly merging together over time to the point where you know how one another thinks and acts. 

    This film has so much meaning that I can’t wait to explore, this is my first time watching it so I…

    Punch-Drunk Love


    PTA is a director I haven’t really explored as much as I probably should have. I hear endless praise for his films but prior to Punch-Drunk Love I’d only seen There Will Be Blood which I didn’t think was a masterpiece. However, with it being his birthday the other day I finally had the push I needed to buy one of his films. As you can see, Punch-Drunk Love was what I chose. 

    Overall, I thought it was good. Adam Sandler…

    Brahms: The Boy II


    The ending of the original Boy is one of the worst endings I think i’ve ever seen, so I really wasn’t expecting much from its money grab sequel. However, I still felt somewhat let down.

    Rear Window


    This is my favourite Hitchcock film i’ve seen so far. It’s a simple and weirdly relatable (especially at the moment!) concept that’s just executed masterfully. I loved how Hitchcock kept the scenes moving with subtle details, such as seeing someone going about their day in a window behind characters talking. 

    Hitchcock created a community in which everyone had their roles. It’s just such a great film, I’m not sure how to describe it but this film felt like everything, to every small detail hit bullseye.

  • Coffee and Cigarettes

    Coffee and Cigarettes


    Sometimes you watch a film and it’s exactly what you needed to see in that moment. I felt this with Coffee and Cigarettes. Jarmusch creates a perfect atmosphere. The dialogue has a particular rhythm to it that seems so authentic and faultless, making the characters feel realistic, constructing a feeling as though we, as an audience, are on the table having a coffee and a cigarette with them. I guess you could compare it to some of Tarantino’s dialogues.
