    The Boy and the Heron


    coming out of retirement and dropping an absolute banger is such a power move. i can’t imagine miyazaki’s filmography without this one. it feels like a career-defining moment, and i’ll surely be thinking about it for a while.

    i watched this one subbed, but after recently learning that robert pattinson is the lead actor for the dubbed one, i now HAVE to see that version. this was so magical so i’m stoked for the rewatch.

  • Possession



    a nasty divorce takes place near the Berlin wall. you get the picture. “mr. borgechav, tear down this wall!” but impregnated with extreme misery. possession captures the toxicity from division in such an effectively haunting way. 

    it’s that impulse through denial, and trying so desperately to control somebody to be something they’re not that makes the divorce of Anna and Mark to be so wicked. while it obviously is analogous to the Berlin wall, the themes of divorce can still…

    Squid Game


    it took me 8 months just to watch the last episode, and yet it felt like i didn’t miss a detail jumping back into it. that’s a testament to the series’ strengths on how absorbable and engaging the story is, but it also points out its weakness on how there lacks depth beyond the surface. i do think the social commentary is profound, and the overarching plot servicing that is intricate and creative; however, i wish the characters and their…

  • Saltburn



    i could criticize the many flaws this has like how trite its message is, or how it was clearly influenced by films like parasite and joker yet is more heavy-handed with its delivery. but, i choose not to. barry keoghan absolutely owns in this, and the imageries and performances were enough to make this the silly spellbinding experience it wanted to be. it’s a murder on the dance floor.
