    Magnolia

    ★★★★½

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

    Magnolia is the third feature film from esteemed American director Paul Thomas Anderson, and fantastically completes his trifecta of 90s movies. Not only does it work as a follow up to his last film Boogie Nights, especially on a technical level, but it also fixes many of the problems that prevented me from giving the former higher than an 8/10.

    The screenplay as a whole is insanely impressive, more so than I think most people even realize. Cutting back and…

    Citizen Kane

    ★★★★★

    Theater experience made me love and appreciate this even more than I was expecting. Compared to other universally acclaimed films such as 2001: A Space Odyssey and The Godfather, Citizen Kane’s story is incredibly simple, yet still has a certain brilliance to it. Mixing past and present, puzzling together the story of such a complex man through anecdotes from past friends and lovers is something that, while maybe not in the exact same way as it is presented here, has…

    Mulholland Drive

    ★★★★★

    This movie is genuinely so good that I would not disagree with you at all if you said it has the best:
    - Sound Design
    - Production Design
    - Editing
    - Writing
    - Cinematography 
    - Acting
    - Mise-en-scène
    - Lighting
    Or literally any other component of film that you can think of. A masterfully crafted, perfect work of cinema that will continue to be studied for generations and one that I feel confident in saying is near the absolute pinnacle of the art form as a whole.

    ★★★★★

    Deleted my shitpost review and decided to make this kind of serious because this has surpassed Eyes Wide Shut and become my favorite movie.

    Chihiro’s journey is so personal and beautiful, it might be the best character arc in film, only challenged by Dave from 2001: A Space Odyssey. Watching her grow from a scared and shriveled child to a confident and charismatic young woman across the two hour runtime is so rewarding. I think her journey is the reason so…

    ★★★★★

    I genuinely cannot comprehend how I gave this a seven out of ten on my first watch. Perfection personified in a feature film, which culminates in one of the most beautiful and touching final shots in cinematic history.
